Barack wins--barely--but is so weakened that once again, we will need rescue. He's really looking like Bambi lately. I'm not too worried at the moment, we still have three months. That's an eternity in politics. Right?
Yes, and Bush blew the WTC.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Except that we have not seen ANY media buys for Obama. Looks like the Dem Strategy is to wait til the convention, build that momentum and start pounding ads right afterwords for 60 days. July-August is always doldrums for these things, waiting for the conventions.

And I really don't think many expected it to be the runaway that some media were trying to sell. There are just too many entrenched voters who pull the red or blue lever, no matter who is running.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
