Obama Nation (Interlude)...  Cross posted from Pull On Superman's Cape.  —  In these next few months there will be troubled waters.  —  There are many, many things to say.  Some are very difficult to say.  Perhaps it is a good time to have a national conversation.
William Kristol / New York Times:
Let's Not, and Say We Did  —  I shuddered only once while watching Barack Obama's speech last Tuesday.  —  It wasn't when he posed the rhetorical questions: “Why associate myself with Reverend Wright in the first place, they may ask?  Why not join another church?”
