    Nuke-u-lar. It's pronounced nuke-u-lar.

    OK, on a much more intellectual note:

    I love seeing Obama take a definitive stand. I feel like he's been pussyfooting around a bit since throwing his hat in the ring. I feel he's right on the money, especially with this one:

    Because the American people weren’t just failed by a President -- they were failed by much of Washington. By a media that too often reported spin instead of facts. By a foreign policy elite that largely boarded the bandwagon for war.

    As for the attacks he's had tossed his way about not having enough experience, I say isn't that a good thing in a way? He hasn't been deeply entrenched in the seediness of Washington like Kerry.

    That's the case he's trying to make.

    Experience and judgment aren't the same thing.

    A pretty solid one, IMHO, especially considering that there isn't any job that gives you the "experience" to be president. It's a pretty unique job description.

    The less "experienced" you are, the fewer favors you likely owe.

    And the longer he's there the closer he gets to becoming everything he's preaching against.
  9. I suspect HRC's dusting herself off and glaring out at the mound this evening.
