    Thanks for the pointer.

    As much as I love my fellow MOMocrat, I have to disagree with some of what she says there. For whatever reason, Obama is getting a major pass on really explaining various issues, including the Reverend Wright thing. His campaign, as with any presidential campaign, unfortunately, has its share of ways it is trying to attack and undermine the other candidates. The MSM just isn’t giving it as much play.

    If he’s unhappy now, he’s really going to have a hard time if the’s the candidate against McCain. He’d better buck up.

    Did I mention how much I hate this race? I hate the fact that the “normal” American voter only hears and cares about the 20 sec sound bite. You may get the president that you deserve but I DESERVE BETTER. I have had it up to here with this.

    Thanks for pointing me there. I posted about the Wright issue in my weekly political post yesterday as I am getting so tired of it.

    punditmom – I really have to wonder how you can say Obama is getting a major pass on this? Really? Compared to what please because I hear about this issue every single day since it came up on EVERY major news outlet and pundit show and blog site.

    Yeesh, I just want Democrats to support each other and remember what’s at stake here. We’ve got to elect whomever the Democratic nominee is so we don’t get another President we don’t want.

    Punditmom, I would not say Obama is getting a major pass on Wright either. If anything, I feel it leans more towards the opposite. As in, he has nothing they can dig up on him, so we’re going to fixate on THIS! And I also don’t get the impression that HE isn’t bucking up – it’s more like the rest of us are sick of hearing about it.

    And Tisha and Sarah, and I very unhappy with the way the race is going as well. As Stefania mentions in her post, the point right now should be fighting McCain, not each other. I am so sad how the Democrats are throwing it away, yet again.

    I read that article earlier today and it was excellent. I’m a Canuck so I dont get a say in this Presidential race unfortunately, but if I did, I’d be behind Obama all the way. I don’t see him getting a free pass in all honesty.

    I meant to state “gas tax holiday” proposal. ACK!


    When did the word Elite become a bad thing. I thought it meant to be at the top and istn’t that what we want in a president.

    I am not an Obama supporter but I think each of the canidates should be elite.

    This whole election makes me ill. We finally have THE BEST CANDIDATE we have had in years and we can’t get it together to get him nominated? Come on!

    I need Obama to do great tomorrow and just have this all be over so we can move forward as a party. Please.
