Barak Obama is here in cleveland tonight.. I'm going to listen to his speech being simulcast on the radio in about a half hour. I expect him to be articulate and bright.. oh, and clean, too.. See how long it takes me to lose my temper and shut it off.. the radio station just got done finding some political science student, and asked her "why has obama changed you from a republican to a democrat?".. she says - " because, like his message appeals to everyone, and includes like everybody".. she sounded about 15... there's some deep political insight there.. here's more " man on the street" interviews: "why do you like obama"? - "we need a change!" "What about his plan for iraq"? - " we need a change! he'll change things! " Is he able to win the war"? - " we need to bring the troops home".. I normally don't participate in self inflicted suffering ( other than watching cleveland sports teams ), but as crazy horse said, " it is good to know what the enemy is thinking".. I wonder if kucinich will show up..
