I agree with you that the base wanted something to call their own. I disagree that anyone could have said those words. She has some endearing qualities to her that people love (and hate) such as her accent (which the more I listen to it makes me cringe), her "hockey mom/soccer mom" label, her good looks and fashion. When you put well written words and a well delivered speech(hitting all the applause points) you get something that many others would have been unable to accomplise. People would'nt have fallen in love with Mitt Romney if he gave that speech, they might have liked it for different reasons, but they wouldn't have crowned him the next coming...

This is too good to be true!

No wonder they don't care about the economy!

The White House will be a downgrade for McCain.

I don't want to be biased just for houses alone, but McCain has more than one of these? How the hell does a Senator afford this?

Ya!

She wears way too much make-up, and she's gotten to much plastic surgery, her hairs too blond, she's too skinny, she's a home wrecker

ELECTION 2008
VP debate moderator Ifill releasing pro-Obama book
Focuses on blacks who are 'forging a bold new path to political power'

Posted: September 30, 2008
8:35 pm Eastern

The moderator of tomorrow's vice-presidential debate is writing a book to come out on the day the next president takes the oath of office that aims to "shed new light" on Democratic candidate Barack Obama and other "emerging young African American politicians" who are "forging a bold new path to political power."

Gwen Ifill of the Public Broadcasting Service program "Washington Week" is promoting "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama," in which she argues the "black political structure" of the civil rights movement is giving way to men and women who have benefited from the struggles over racial equality.

Is this a problem?

Gwen usually does a pretty good job.

She is human.

Does she have a bias?

Was this discussed when this debate was arranged?

Does she have a self interest?

If she doesn't have a bias, the right wing talking heads (Hannity, O'Riely, Rush, Wilcow) will make sure then spin it that way. In fairness though she will be judged on the way she treats each candidate. Hopefully she gives it to Biden just as much or more than Palin, that way they won't have anything to complain about.

people can charge bias

but most times there is nothing tangible to even consider the charge


there is a danger of her over compensating with hitting Bidden harder
to protect herself from the charge - and that is not fair. either

this very easily can skew the evaluation of this debate

For quoting that site? For real? Strange, they're quite reputable, as far as I know.

Tsunami's just a crazy sound byte. The fact is, the numbers have risen dramatically in some states over the past few days. No more, no less.

Which could still leave her open to the charge of bias.
