    repeat itself.

    For some reason, experience does not register enough to effect a change.

    So, how do creatures of habit change?  Imitation, I think, accounts for any change.  If a powerful person comes along to trigger adulation, the impulse to imitate follows as they "imprint" on someone new.  That's the danger President Obama presents and which is why it is important for the political operatives to denigrate his ability to influence at every turn.

    The McCain ad, entitled, "The One," was an effort to immunize the electorate against Obama's charms.

    Willard's forte = "catch 'n' cage" People to Wall Street, "let our money go."
