Thanks everyone. I leave later tonight and I'm still really excited about it. Hopefully when I get back Obama will have the nomination wrapped up and we can start talking about how McCain is totally gonna beat him in November :)

Bog, I've been so busy the past few weeks crisscrossing the U.S. to help with election coverage with the journalist I'm working with. And OK, I admit that was probably a cheap shot at avril. I was just surprised no one had taken yet. Just to contextualize though, I think Day-Lewis is a wonderful ac...

Unless you do it without proper punctuations. Then at least there's context for it.

Magilla, I'm certainly not claiming that Obama can't lose in November. Of course he can. My only point is, if he can't beat McCain, then neither could Hillary :p

What else was there to argue? You stated that you prefered Hillary to Obama. That's your preference, I certainly can't argue with you about that. I addressed one part of your post that you were misinformed or just wrong about.

Speaking of Palestinians, neither of these douchebags will touch that issue (and when they have in the past, it's always the wrong touch).

I talked to my elderly Jewish relatives about who they would vote for. They have voted Republican only once or twice in this 80+ years and they said they would vote for McCain over Obama because "they didn't know about him." Meaning whether or not he would be good for the state of Israel. They cite...

And something Magilla said I think has some resonance. Remember how in 2000 and 2004, we thought the young voter was going to turn out and turn the election to the Democrats? Then they didn't. Obama may be energizing them now, but most of them won't care come November when this whole thing has beco...

Thanks Damien. And thanks for making the good point that if Hillary (and her supporters) insist on giving her credit for the fortunes of the Bill Clinton years, then she must also incur the misfortunes. And anyone who read that three part Counterpunch article on her and Bill knows that she was alwa...

What is the character doing but serving an author's misanthropic purpose? Grapple with that question and you find the limitation in the McCarthy novel and the Coen brothers film. The character has no reason; he does not change; he is not quite human. He's not supposed to be human, he's essentially ...

Just to show that I'm not really a big fan of either one of them (and I'll post another article about Obama and the "Muslim smear" criticizing Obama in the Hillary vs. Obama thread).

I've never seen you criticize her at all Oscar Guy. That was my point. Or (I don't want to make this about Oscar Guy) any of the Hillary backers here, to be honest. Nothing single minded about it. And some of you just dodge criticisms of her entirely. And when you said, "So really throwing the gay ...

Will they change their minds if Bloomberg is Obama's running mate? What if the preponderance of "old" people everywhere vote for McCain and Obama's pasionate young supporters become worn out, tired and stay home in the general election? What if the large numbers of independants and crossover Republ...
