I just remembered that the “Audacity of Hope” line came from one of Rev. Wright’s sermons. Kind of tragic and almost Shakespearean that the man behind the birth of Obama’s campaign was also behind it’s death….dun dun dunnnn.
Well sort of. If you look at it this way: if Obama is the candidate whom the voters and the party want as their nominee, if Obama has the nomination all locked up, then why hasn’t Edwards come out and endorsed him? Doesn’t it therefore, act as a tacit endorsement for Hillary? Or at least a net plus? Just asking.

Could Obama be too idealist, too principled to run for president? It seems there’s a disconnect existing among voters between whom they want RUNNING for president and whom they want making actual policy decisions in the White House. Just take a look at Bush and Cheney. Even if you were Republican, would you really vote for a guy who snarls when he smiles? I don’t think so. And today’s campaign gimmick is a perfect example. Obama refuses to pander to his base and support McCain’s “proposal” for a gas tax break that would save you…wait for it…a whole 30 bucks. So, if Obama won’t pander to his base by supporting campaign teasers like a gas tax holiday (please, more like gas tax 10 minute preschool nap time), how will he win the White House?

Obama may be tearing it up on the basketball court, but Hillary’s got game.
(Just keep Bill on the sidelines)

Clinton and Obama are not fighting over who’s the front runner, but rather who’s the underdog. Karl Rove and Maureen Dowd actually agree on something, and could joking about the economy actually get you elected?

Last week Obama invoked hip hop mogul and newly wed Jay-Z when he acknowledged that when you’re under attack by your opponent you’ve got to simply…
and then he turned and cooly wiped some Hillary dirt off his shoulder. Of course, I immediately rocked out to the song on the subway ride home…thinking 2 things: 1) thank goodness Hillary hasn’t invoked any Celine Dion and 2) if Obama is the Jay-Z of campaign ’08, who does that make Hillary?
Why blame ABC News for learning from the Rev. Wright flap? Fox News was light years ahead of the story on Rev. Wright’s controversial comments. And once it finally hit the main stream media, buyers’ remorse floated through the minds of the democratic electorate. I doubt they will be able to withstand another spell of “flimsy” associations.
And on another note, both Clinton and Obama made some pretty outrageous promises last night. From committing to pull out from Iraq despite all advice of the contrary by military advisors to “read my lips, no new taxes” for anyone earning under $200,000. We all know how that panned out. So, don’t blame the media outlet for merely providing a stage on which the Democratic candidates both shamelessly pandered to their base.

Were Hillary’s Bosnia comments indication that she is trying to go up against Obama in a popularity contest? Honey, please. Break open those republican textbooks you’ve been accused of following and turn to Campaigning 101: STAY ON MESSAGE!
