What Is The Message?
Earlier today I attended the media round table and report on Katrina Recovery: Failed Promises...Future Prospects moderated by Ted Koppel with Mary L. Landrieu, Doug Brinkley and others. The talk was based on the major challenge facing the new administration which will need to convert this national tragedy into a triumph for the nation. "This fragmented recovery is a mirror on America," was one of the themes, which I will post in depth here and at Huffpo after I turn in a manuscript that was due yesterday.
Quoting Arianna yesterday produced so much venom in the comments that I probably won't do it again here! But, Fearless is a good book nonetheless.
How about a quote from Fear And Loathing on The Campaign Trail '72? [more...}
George McGovern, confronting a political crisis which could destroy his candidacy for the White House, moves like a sailboat headed down the bay.
First, he tacks in one direction, and this is reported. Then he tacks back the other way, and that too is reported. But the reports of these movements do not necessarily reveal where he is ultimately headed.
McGovern apparently wants it that way. Let others seem to speak for you.

Sound familiar? So, now we get ready to see more speeches about Obama. Any minute comes Chelsea, then Hillary. Yes, Hillary will be criticized for not saying enough, or saying too much. But, whatever happens, hopefully there will be an actual message soon, besides "Obama for President."
