hillary does the job

27-Aug-08

to my mind, she did exactly what she needed to do last night. she explained why she was in the race, she hit on the themes that excited her supporters, and she pivoted all that to believably encourage her supporters to support barack obama. it was a great speech, and to my mind laid to […]

hillary clinton, veep?

22-Aug-08

andrew sullivan thinks maybe, and he’s the biggest hillary hater on the planet: Texting the selection of Hillary at 3 am this Saturday morning would be the coolest campaign gimmick of all time. i’d go even further, and say that given we know that obama has made his choice, if we haven’t heard the pick […]

obama’s veep

20-Aug-08

my dream person? al gore. oddly enough for me, i think that i’d be happy with hillary clinton as well. i’ve calmed down a bit over the last few weeks, and she’d be a great attack dog, which for me is the best quality a vice-president can have. i like joe biden a lot, so […]

could it really be true?

02-Jun-08

could tomorrow be the day that hillary clinton withdraws from the race? i’m watching this closely. as one of her constituents, i’m looking to see how she gets out of the race, and how well and strongly and effectively she supports obama. she really needs to be graceful, and supportive, and needs to do her […]

time for hillary clinton to go

24-May-08

more accurately, it’s time for her to be made to go. these latest remarks, citing robert kennedy’s assassination as a reason to stay in the race, are beyond the pale. you can’t tell me this was just a slip. nothing the clintons do is without purpose. the superdelegates need to step up and end this […]

this and that catchup

11-May-08

it’s been a while, so here are a few short takes: » kirk was in the hospital overnight on wednesday for some tests. he’s had dizziness, general fatigue, and chest tightness for a few weeks now, and our doctor wanted to rule out the big stuff — heart problems, blood clots, lung problems, etc. thankfully […]

thank goodness

29-Apr-08

the media has gotten obama to denounce the last uppity black man in his life. now maybe they’ll be satisfied and move on to things of consequence. like, say, health care, the economy, the middle east, iraq, and iran.

obama “outraged” with wright’s comments

29-Apr-08

from the article: In his harshest criticism yet of his former minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama said he was “outraged” by Wright’s comments at the National Press Club Monday, and “saddened by the spectacle.” personally, i’m guessing that wright chose to fall on his sword to a degree — to get out there and […]

comment of the day

27-Mar-08

from an obama/clinton story on talking points memo: “Blocking revotes in MI and Fla.” Lol! I just love this mindless talking point. Where did he acquire the power to stop the Michigan and Florida legislatures from passing laws and/or the state parties from submitting workable delegate selection plans to the DNC? Is this like a […]

classic wonkette snark

25-Mar-08

i love reading wonkette.com. the attitude is a perfect antidote to boring and conventional political coverage here’s an excellent example of why.

obama’s new strategy?

25-Mar-08

i’ve wailed and moaned for obama to get tougher. it seems that he has. the last couple of news cycles have seen a steady ramp-up of stories about how hillary clinton outright lied “misspoke” about her trip to bosnia with sinbad and sheryl crow. a clinton obfuscating a prevarication? who knew? nice to note that […]

hey obama, get control of your message

07-Mar-08

way too many people are going off the reservation in the obama campaign. we’ve had the guy talking to the canadians about nafta. hillary, of course, did the same thing, but that’s not my concern here. then this samantha power person called hillary a monster and had to resign. now we find out that she […]

msnbc.com completely bites; obama shines anyway

27-Feb-08

watched the second half of the final debate last night. didn’t watch the first half, except in stutters, with constant “buffering…please wait” messages flashing across my screen. it’s not my internet access — cnn streamed their two debates to me without a hitch. and when i finally abandoned all hope and went to wonkette.com to […]

last night’s debate

22-Feb-08

watched the debate last night, the same way we did last time, since we have no cable tv. like last time, i liked hillary. she’s intelligent, measured, informed, and projects enthusiasm, power, and competence. problem for her is, so does obama. two great candidates. and what i’m reminded of is the cycle i went through […]

quick question

20-Feb-08

if the republicans have any real nasty, smoking gun-type dirt on barack obama, why would they save it for a general election? why wouldn’t they get it out there now in hopes of knocking out obama in favor of hillary? hillary, about whom they have warehouses of dirt to unload. and you know they’d rather […]

obama: looking back, looking forward

20-Feb-08

from kos, a great snapshot of where obama stands, how he got there, where the race is probably going, and why we should take a deep breath and appreciate the race lasting a bit longer. from the article: Now I know people will be calling for her to quit the race, but I hope she […]

i said, please…make…her…stop

19-Feb-08

this can’t be coming from the campaign, right? still, don’t these people know they are hurting her far more than they are helping her?

please…make…her…stop

14-Feb-08

is this hillary’s attempt at mobilizing young voters via viral video? if so, it’s hard to imagine a more tone-deaf attempt. if not, the campaign should have had the foresight to not let a camera anywhere near this spectacle. or, indeed, not produce the spectacle in the first place.

i can live with that

07-Feb-08

so mitt romney is out, which means that john mccain is the republican nominee. I’ll probably still vote for whoever the democratic nominee is, although if hillary is the nominee i will give mccain a good hard look. if obama is the nominee then there’s no question — he’s my man. (and to all that […]

listening to hillary

01-Feb-08

kirk and i don’t have cable tv, and our tv doesn’t have a tuner, so no television for us. but we have wanted to see one of the debates, so we tuned in to last night’s debate between hillary clinton and barack obama. tuned in via cnn.com, which provides a live feed. a very tiny […]
