    Anyone catch it today . I thought he was very good answering Russerts questions and articulating his positions. Reminded me of what I liked about the guy in the first place.

    For the most part I liked it, although I didn't appreciate Russert spending the first 15 minutes going over the Rev. Wright controversey over and over and over again.

    My wife watched both Obama on Meet the Press and Hillary on whatever she was on. She's been in Obama's corner but seems to be turning toward Hillary.
    I thought Obama handled the Wright b.s. well.

    disagree. I think he did Obama a favor. It game him a chance to explain in depth his complex relationship with Wright.

    Obama did a very nice job.

    He's not as charismatic in that setting as he is on the stump, but his intellect really shines through.

    I always find it amusing when people say he acts too cerebral and "elitist." Where are we as a country when we're concerned a would-be president is too intelligent? And fuck, shouldn't the president be elite? How much more elite can you get?

    Remember, this is the same country that elected Bobo The Circus Bear to consecutive terms because he's "regular people."

    Does not say much about the candidates that the democrat party chose to run against Bush.

    Yeah. The Dems ran Gore and Kerry, men with IQs, while the GOP backed Frank The Tank. Silly Dems, thinking that ideas and issues matter.

    Bush had a higher gpa than Kerry at Yale, For guys with alleged high IQ's they sure ran bad campaigns.

    Bingo -- Especially Gore who was handed a huge advantage, a huge lead, a good economy and he somehow screwed it up, the same way the Dem's seem intent on doing this year -- then we'll have four more years of whining by the Fenian's of this world about how stupid people are for voting for the GOP guy......

    If these guys are such idiots --why can't the Dem's beat them?
