In Case You Missed It

Here we go, Knox, Chickenlittle, Sundries readers. Just in case you want to see it again or for the first time, here is the video directly from Senator Obama's website.



  • Thanks for the link Victoria. I only made halfway through- a bit too long I suppose, and I had too much to do this afternoon. Your live blog looked fun. :(

    Regarding the infomercial: I thought Obama (or was it Axelrod?) scored some points. The whole is too rich for one sitting. Here are a couple thoughts:

    (1) I liked that they targeted the Midwest. I made the point on Althouse back here that:

    Obama needs to stop courting urban elitists of every stripe and color- stop that-right now. They polarize him, plus they're already in the bag for him already and should be grown up enough to stomach a little coalition with fly-over state people.

    [OT question how do you tag an html link to a comment page?]

    (2) The parade of ordinary people was effective, but I found the lesson Obama drew confusing. On education, how can he speak so truthfully as beginning at 15:12 (discussing parental involvement in education) and then turn around at 16:25 and say how he’s going to fix things: “moral obligation”... an army of new teachers This is inconsistent.

    I watched the movie “Hud” tonight. Melvyn Douglas had a couple good lines. One was:

    Little by little, the look of the country
    changes because of the men we admire.

    I will give Obama one thing: if he can motivate half of our nation to move towards what the other already half knows and believes, it would be good for the country. Of course, we can say the same for John McCain and Sarah, but they appeal to different people don’t they?

    Thanks again for the link. You truly do the public a favor.
