    Well, not really, wonk. I'm sure if you ask Bayh, the two reasons he didn't run are Obama and Clinton. Everyone else is just flotsam. Obama will raise $100 million quite easily.

    That's nothing. Only two men have ever stepped from the Senate to the White House -- Warren G. Harding and John F. Kennedy.

    I knew there weren't many. Didn't realize the number was that small.

    I hope he wins.

    I don't know if he will...

    Then that doesn't bode well for McCain or Hillary, either

    Interesting, the track record for governors versus senators. I too never knew that number was so low.

    The guy's really . . . really . . . REALLY liberal.

    I take McCain over Obama.

    I take Obama over, say, Brownback.

    Other matchups are open to discussion.

    That stat only means anything, if it does at all, if you consider who's actually running in 08. Who's the top gov. candidate, Mitt Romney? A black guy with a name that sounds like Osama has a better chance than a Mormon from Mass. Bill Richardson is prob the top Dem guy, but how's the New Mexico gov going to upend Hill and Barack in fundraising among Dem supporters? That stat, Govs over Sens, will be amended in 08.

    He's our only hope. That is all.

    Can everyone just give it up with his fucking name already? Who cares what his name is? It doesn't say anything about what kind of politician or person he is, or what kind of job he would do. Hell a patriarchal political name has our country all fucked up. But all every blabbering conservative quarter-wit ever says is Barrack HUSSEIN!!!! Obama this and that. He's the only politician now who goes by his full name, and he's not even the one who uses it, it's the pants-pissing conservatives truly troubled by a charismatic breath of fresh air they don't know much about yet.

    Hell one idiot got on the air just last night and asked how relevant it was that he lived in Indonesia for a few years, and even went to a Muslim school there for two of them. Is he a Muslim, or a non-practicing one he wanted to know? Of course, after two years at a Muslim school he then went to a Catholic school, so it was obvious this guy was desperate for anything on Barrack HUSSEIN!!!!! Obama.
