Is Barack Obama Ashamed of Joe Biden?
Jeff Emanuel pointed this out right after the Palin pick. Now that both campaigns have had some time to settle, rework websites, etc., I thought it would be worth re-examining how the campaigns are treating the Veep picks. It looks very much like Barack Obama is ashamed of or embarrassed by Joe Biden. Just look at the Obama website compared to the McCain website. On | Read More »

Pay no attention to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s totally not fair game. He’s only making money off his dad’s connections, that’s all.
Here is a story most of the MSM is going to run away from as fast as possible. The son of Barack Obama’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Joe Biden, is a top partner at a Washington law firm that has lobbied his father’s office, a family tie that could prove embarrassing for a campaign that has positioned itself as fighting lobbyists and special interests in | Read More »

Your base material is | Read More »
Just How Little Change There Is In Obama’s Hope
The non-traditional politician chooses a gaffe machine who has been in the United States Senate since The One was eight years old. The only change there is that Obama has finally chosen to ditch the idea that he is a new type of politician. Obama is part of the failed legacy of liberalism of the past 100 years. There is nothing new here except the | Read More »
Obama-Biden ’08: A Clean-Articulate Campaign
The One has chosen. Have U ben txtd yet? I will say again: the reason this has been handled the way it has been handled is because Obama wants to emphasize that he needs no one.

Joe Biden It Is
A friend who would know tells me Joe Biden is off to the airport and is Illinois bound. I trust the friend, but I’m not sure about his information. Consider this informed speculation and nothing more. I’m perfectly willing to be wrong, but the signs point to yes and, again, the source tends to be right about these things. Honestly, I did not see this | Read More »
The Vice Presidential Nominee
I’m going to call it. Barack Obama’s Vice Presidential nominee will be Tim Kaine, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I’m perfectly open to being wrong, but I do not think I am. Both Obama and McCain really need someone with executive experience. That rules out Joe Biden, who was raised by the wolves in the Senate. That leaves Evan Bayh, Tim Kaine, and wild | Read More »
