Having had time to reflect, I don't think Hil's comments were meant to be nefarious, but it was an unfortunate thing to bring up. Not to mention, as the Rude Pundit has pointed out, the fact that primaries used to start later than they do now so there's really no comparing this year to 1968.

That said, Hillary's camp were quick to pounce on Barack's "Small town" comments and were all too welcoming in the reaction of the press there, how those blew up, so karma's a bitch, huh? We'll see how this plays out, but I have a feeling this ends it for her. I don't think she'll be Veep, either.

Warren Buffett endorses Obama. I like the dig into Bush at the bottom.

"They say in the stock market ... buy stock in a business that's so good that an idiot can run it because sooner or later one will...Well, the United States is a little like that. We can take a little mis-management from time to time."

Interesting take on Obama's "Applachia problem." Some of the end of this piece is a bit of a stretch, I don't think one can equate the current climate as an analogy to John Adams and John Q. Adams v. Andrew Jackson, but, you get the idea. A sensitive lot, like the Scots, methinks.

My take? I'd say Jim Webb would be high on the veepstakes list, assuming he'd accept.

To my fellow Obama supporters, let me just say this: It's not surprising that the old country club would try and throw the kitchen sink at us. Remember, both McCain, Clinton, and also most of the establishment media have a lot to lose were Obama to be elected. The absence (largely) of PAC and Corporate, Lobbyist money means the end of things as the country club folks know it. And they are fighting to dupe people into believing that Obama is the kind of elitist that, in reality, they are. This election is our last, best hope to change that. Otherwise, it won't happen in my lifetime, and this century will be a repeat of the last. America will slowly fade as a power and countries like China, India, and others in the Asian region will be the ones dictating the terms. If we stay our current course, the vacuum we have created for ourselves will continue to suck things that way.
