No thanks necessary Ms. Liz. It was a wonderful piece of writing - and observing. I recommend it to all -here's the link: http://mom-101.blogspot.com/2008/01/skip-this-one-if-youve-got-elephant.html

Wow Cindy, that story is absolutely amazing. Brought tears to my own eyes. And I had never considered that perspective about the broken-hearted, but of course it's true. I think Nate was this way in the lat election when Wes Clark was knocked out. He was the candidate who got him inspired about politics for the first time ever...and it was a hard crash downward from there.

And thanks a million for your comment on my political post today. It made my day.

That's a great story about you. I hope you're wrong about what will happen when Hillary wins the nomination, however.

And I too think conservatives support Obama, knowing he's probably not electable. The same reason I know McCain is the best the republicans have got, so I keep cheering Romney on!

Janis Berman

Hopefully, she'll bow out gracefully and acknowledge the torch has been passed. I'm hoping he'll choose Al Gore as his VP and give him a foreign affairs portfolio to solve among other things, global warming.

Richard Atkins

I know that, if the photo of Gene McCarthy were a wider shot, we'd see you next to him on the podium with your effervescent smile mirroring the happiness of his nearly unimaginable achievement. Hearing Obama speak after the Iowa results, I felt it was RFK all over again, with the same hope and vitality I experienced when I worked that campaign in 1968. Not long thereafter, the great 37-year mergng of two disappointed politicos (us) began in Washington the night I presume Bill Clinton - but certainly a lot of his Rhodes scholar mates - came home in January 1971. 23 days until that anniversary, sweets!

That's a great observation and I'm not sure of the answer. If he doesn't trip on international issues - and he well may - I think he'd be a formidable adversary though....

More conservatives have backed Obama (or at least spoken highly of him) than just David Brooks--George Will, Karl Rove, Peggy Noonan, and probably more. Which makes one always wonder-- do they do so because they see him as the easiest target?
