Obama Rally in Philly Last Night
Not a small crowd. Not a bad speech. Do I believe every line? No. Can the tide of Globalism be stopped? No. Are those rustbelt jobs coming back? No. Do I really think McCain is a Bush third term? No.
If elected, how much could Obama really accomplish? Could he break gridlock and change "the game?" Who knows?
That is not the point. We don't know those answers, but we do know that things need to be shaken, not stirred and the chances of that occuring with Clinton (or McCain) are slim to none. Then of course there is the painful prospect of listening to a Clinton (with her disgusting Chicago accent and patronizing Gore/Kerry-like tone) inaugural address or State of the Union or even press conference is too unbearable to contemplate.
