I'm sure that the Democratic Party was prepared for this. After all, why else would you schedule your national convention a week before the Republican National Convention? And then McCain had the "audacity" to announce his VP pick on the Friday before the convention? Didn't Obama name his VP pick before the convention too?

Maybe they just need to schedule convention times better in the future, so that they're after the RNC next time. But I agree with other posters here in saying that Palin's novelty will wear thin very soon, as you get the very real sense that the only reason McCain chose her is because of her gender, more or less.

Makes sense. Good to know for the future.

Were there any Michael Moore sightings this week, I didn't see him? 4 years ago, with Fahrenheit 911 in the theaters, he was all over Boston.

Don't worry that will happen when Obama nominates Hillary for the Supreme Court.

It would have been easy to let the Palin nom slip out early and put the News cycle in a frenzy.

Just like Biden's name got out the night before the promised text.


To McCain's credit they kept the lid 'real tight' on this,
not to detract from Obama's big night.




Obama failed to keep his word to all his supporters, that he promised would be the first to know.


McCain gave no promise that the announcement would be text or anything else, he just did the selfless thing waited until the next day,
to honor Obama's acceptance speech last night

Which team would you have more confidence in keeping national security issues safe?

It had nothing to do

with trying to compete with Obama previously for the news cycle

and losing miserably, the reporters labelling McCain as creme cheese in a jello salad that time.

It's hard to tell when you're being serious or not, so I'm going to chalk this up as a joke.

You have no way of knowing that at all.

None.

good for your mom!

on very rare occasions I've voted twice for Local Republicans -
both Liberal Republicans back in the 60's - 70's
(I was too young to vote in the first) Mayor Lindsay and later Sen Charles Goodell
.
Lindsay won, Goodell didn't

it was because the 2 democrats were SUCH social conservative Dems ....bleh!

Now Mayor Lindsay............. he could have run for President as a Mayor of a 7 million World City..........not a maoyr of a approx 7200 - 8000 town...an d Alaska has the the least or almost the last least populated STATE IN THE USA....

IN FACT..... think I still have it...... a Lindsay button........I collect mostly Democratic political buttons....

Mayor Lindsay.....
"it's the second hardest job in the Country"
