So Much for Obama's "Bounce"

McCain and his people made an excellent choice in Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska if for no other reason than Obama's thunder has officially been stolen.

The "Bounce" Obama got from the DNC, which ended up being around 4% (less than stellar as the average is ~6%)?

The mantra of "Change" echoed ad nauseam for months and months?

Put the first female V.P. (which Obama had a chance at) in your "Change Pipe" and smoke it! And wave bye-bye to your "bounce".

At this point, it isn't formal yet, and I am waiting to her the radio broadcast but it is good to have some assurance that Obama will lose the Presidency in 2008.

Love Him or Hate Him, He's Still Got It...

I read the speech to be delivered by President Bill Clinton at the DNC this evening, and I have to admit I was impressed. Whether you can stand him or not, you would be lying if you said he wasn't the master at delivery. He was clearly in his element, doing what he loved. Obama stopped by in an impromptu fashion to thank the Clintons and the Bidens for their support; I would say he owes former President Clinton BIG TIME for delivering the way he did.

And I am NOT a Clinton fan by any stretch...

Some speculate this is "The End" for the Clinton political machine; I wish I could believe that, but the cautious part of me knows that these people will keep coming back like Jason Voorhees.
