Al Giordano is right, the Obama bio video that preceded his nomination acceptance speech was fantastic. If you missed it, here it is:
Make a new
To me this is just candidate as iPod (or any other 'You Must Have This!' Product.
I've been disappointed that McCain was able to quickly change the focus with his pick of Palin. I assume that was done on purpose. But that makes me wonder if the original schedule of McCain's speech to conflict with Monday Night Football (with NY vs. Washington to boot) was also on purpose and, if so, to what end? Only thing I can think of is that McCain's folks know he'd look bad being compared to Obama's speech back-to-back. But I'd think McCain would want the undivided attention of the nation.
How did we get such a inferior nominee? Only because the progressives, mostly fake ones, have a guilty conscious and decided to vote for a black candidate.
They were wrong then, and I think you are wrong now. It was a very good speech.
Those are nice, but they would have been severely panned by everyone.
He had a set of goals with that speech.
If Bloomberg/Clark would run as a third party ticket, I would vote for them in a heartbeat!
Re the bio: I did noticed that, via the pictures of the community organizing days re the plant closing, there were plenty of white folks in that basement that were part of the constituency being serviced...now that's the first time I have had that notion of those days, so it was informative in that way.
The video really offended me in that it presented Obama as a saintly figure.
The narrator said Obama's mother saw in him "a promise." What about Obama's sister? Did she see in her a promise?
The narrator said all of Obama's classmates took jobs at big-money firms, but Obama went a different way. I'm sure at least one didn't go for the cold cash and even if they all did, he didn't need to insult his classmates to build himself up.
wow, seriously some here can find something in anything to be irrationally irate about.
seeing as you were going to vote for mccain out of spite, it's pretty apparent you are the bottom of the list in terms of rationality.
