Hmm, I am not a female (sure!) wont vote for Obama-baby or McCain (again sure!) so ABC and the likes have counted me out. BUT NEVER COUNT OUT A CLINTON! You will see she will become a President next January. That’s the point. In the meantime Barack can continue to inhale until the year 2016 and John to distance himself away from Bush until he founds himself in his Arizonian house.

Yes, I will write-in Hillary no matter what the ballot will look like on the Election day. Go on, Hillary!

But I think we have to accept that it’s the calm before the Nobody-Knows-What. The netroots are circling Joe Lieberman again, but Reid et. al. won’t give up his head on a stake until they see what’s up for the next Congress, which suggests that they don’t necessarily see a Senatorial landslide in their immediate future. There could be a major terrorist attack. The markets might tank on a 1929 scale. I think Obama is doing what HRC would also have done: recognizing that s/he’s asking the country literally to do what it’s never done before, and, as obviously virtuous as that is, playing things pretty carefully. Academics and the commentariate have the luxury of wargaming it however they like, but it is pretty much unmapped territory out there. I’d be surprised if the candidates and parties didn’t move very carefully over that territory. Clinton would have been a bit more of a risktaker I think, because she’s more experienced and has more of an intellectual than an intuitive approach to political strategy, but not by that very much I’d guess.

See Lambert’s post at Corrente, which he calls, “Just sayin’.”

I’ve enjoyed your vacation snaps. No, Springsteen isn’t on board yet–but I’m pretty sure they’ll enlist someone big to ensure they can fill the stadium. I just used him and Stevie Wonder because Wonder has played pre-speech events for Obama before, and Springsteen was big in Kerry/Edwards ’04, as you recall.

And SF: both McCain and Obama are lurching to the right, and to the status quo, so yeah, it’s pretty dull now. (But, this is just the calm before the post-Labor Day storm, of course.)

I thought Obama was going to be just as feisty with McCain as he was with HRC. Things have gotten so boring and anticlimactic. Of course, going back to an earlier discussion, the media plays a role in the dumbing down/boring up of the political discourse. I have the feeling that HRC would have made things more interesting and intense.

Please confirm, and thanks for helping us get back in the loop, Historiann!

I’d take another LBJ in a heartbeat, quite frankly. He was a crude man, and a bully, but he got stuff done. We need someone with his mojo now, not equivocation or “post-ideological” leadership. Vietnam will probably continue to overshadow his courageous leadership on Civil Rights and the War on Poverty, however, which is tragic.
