  •  When Obama announces his VP (3+ / 0-)

    Remember when Obama announces his VP in  a few hours, no matter who it is we all should blog that "this is the brilliant, slam-dunk decision that  shows why Barack is the leader that America wants as President"

    Also remember that no matter what McCain announces we should all blog, "Oh, what a terrible mistake on McCain’s part. This is the decision that historians will say cost him the election.  I have no doubt the phrase "EPIC FAIL", a term from the video game community, now has a place in political history."

    Why?

    Because the Republicans will be doing the reverse.

      And will comment appropriately, whether I think Obama has done the right thing or the wrong thing.

      A Bayh nomination would unfortunately demonstrate that Obama has learned all the wrong lessons in this campaign.

      Remember that Bayh voted for the 2002 AUMF against Iraq. We undermine the Dem position against McCain, nominate someone no one outside of a few midwest states has ever heard of, plus we lose a Dem senator in the bargain? Sign me up!

    •  Hold the candidate to a high standard (0+ / 0-)

      When I agree with the candidate, I am happy to make that known.  But I refuse to go along with the candidate when I think he is wrong.  I expect Sen. Obama to run an intellectually honest and rhetorically consistent campaign.  If he changes his mind on some issues or refines his positions as his understanding of the facts changes, then that can be positive, but I will also evaluate those positions independently and make my own determination whether I support them.
