    Interesting to hear that not everybody thought Eastwood's speech was ineffective. Maybe it did resonate with some people who dislike all politicians, because of the way he was dissing Obama. Maybe the same people would have also liked it if he was dissing any politician.

    Nevertheless, the empty chair motif does seem like more than just a coincidence. It was perfectly symbolic because it was a Republican doing it to Obama specifically, based on the fact that the Republicans have always been running against an imaginary version of Obama.
