Seriously?  —  She's lucky Obama's so obviously elitist or this might come across as clumsy and forced.  Errr...Anyway, without further ado, Hillary's planned appeal to the viewers of Monday Night Raw.  All the candidates will be making a statement.  I do appreciate the reference to the “people's elbow,” but who picked the name?

Obama's Touch of Class  —  Allow me to introduce myself.  According to the general clucking of the national punditry, my 2004 book - “What's the Matter With Kansas?”  - is supposed to have persuaded Barack Obama to describe the yeomanry of Pennsylvania as “bitter” people who …

Rendell And Farrakhan  —  One thought that this video inevitably raises: what if Obama had ever said such a thing or been to such an event?  Given what we know now about this campaign, would it not be the conventional wisdom that it would be the end of his candidacy?

Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
MORE AD NONSENSE....Are the pro-Obama forces seriously trying to get their troops outraged over this latest ad from Hillary Clinton?  Just because it contains a ten-second sequence of presidential crises (Depression, Pearl Harbor, gas crisis, Katrina, etc.) and flashes a half-second clip of Osama bin Laden as part of it?
