    I would talk to you on a live thread too, westcott! My primary blog time kicks in after midnight though.

    Anyways, I'm not sure that comment was all for me or for general consumption.  But let's see...I didn't say anything about experience or "understanding" and actually have never even touched that rather nutrient-free argument.

    But maybe you were just rattling off a host of symptoms of that dreaded 'disease' which you call 'Hillary'. That's a new one- Hillary as a Disease! I love metaphor so from a communications standpoint I can appreciate that ... I am left pondering though, if she is a terminal disease like cancer, or if she might be more like a bad case of the flu? Or bronchitis? Where you could like-- take two Obamas and feel better in the morning? Gargle with a little Biden for quick relief?

    And yes, Ed does have a big audience, that's true. I've never found him to be as progressive as he claims but that's just me and pet issues. For years he insisted any discussion of insecure voting systems was nothing but conspiracy theory bunk and had no place on his show. (kinda like over here) Then he finally saw the light like the rest of the world -- but it took an eternity. Morning Edition btw is the "most widely heard adio news program in the United States"... which is kinda big too.

    I agree -- I'd love to hear all my (Dem) candidates on Randi, and most especially on Thom Hartmann, for whom I have enormous respect. I'd love to hear them on Young Turks too. But so far, I've only caught a few second - third tiers on progressive radio. We still have about a year to go though. Would be grand if we actually had more progressive airwaves beyond the designated end-of-band sliver too.

    I don't unconditionally love any of them, westcott. So what I did to maintain sanity(!) when the lineup was in its seedling stages --was to super shrink the role of president to a mere figurehead. In my mind only. heh. In that way I was able to place greater emphasis on the role of cabinet and other likely admin appointments and focus there. I needed to be able to get behind someone and wasn't having much luck with the current lot on their own.

    You know me... I tend to give a huge benefit of the doubt to Wes Clark. Even when it hurts like hell. I can therefore be called a sycophantic bootlicking blonde cultist idiot fool wacko nutbag lockstep mindless sheep for it. (And probably have been) But until this week I hadn't even picked anyone to vote for in the primaries. Then Clinton confirmed to the press that she would put Wes in her administration, were she to be elected. And I made my choice, again based on my own fantasy restructuring of the executive branch vis a vis the cabinet (shrunken ... soley for my purposes);)

    I'd work equally hard for whoever gets the nom. I find flaws in them all and seldom subscribe to the purity theory of my candidate vs yours and your mother wears army boots anyways.

    My only point was... that it wasn't true that Hillary wouldn't ever appear on leftist radio.

    Now back to Pakistan - which is on fire.

      actually dead.  It does seems to have a very slow pulse.  And I can't find a single thing I disagree with in your comment.

      The ...Bushies... don't make policies to deal with problems. ...It's all about how can we spin what's happening out there to do what we want to do. Krugman
