Paul McCartney made a racial slur? I assume you mean macaca

Seems to me it was front and center, on the non-cable newscasts as well. At the time a number of people were making foot-in-mouth comments. As we can all see the Ferraro story is quite mainstream-no left leaning bias there. Nothing the media loves more, other than the real story behind high priced call girls-which was on all three morning shows at the same time this morning.

Those headaches Romney loves are thanks to the aerosal from the hairspray he inhales on a daily basis.

the MSM handled the Biden racist remark much more gingerly than the George Allen racist remark.

To not admit that would be dishonest.

do you not think that a poor choice of words -- "clean" or "articulate" -- is different than using a racial slur like "macaca"?

Obama/GORE !!! Ya, it's a stretch, just speculating, but it makes sense.

Gore didn't want to fight the Clinton's for the nom. and he will have 8 yrs in the WH to work his global warming agenda and then take the reins after Obama. It's perfect!
16 yrs of dems in the WH!

Well when you add Biden's comment about all East Indians own Dunkin Donuts and Convience stores, or something to that effect-taking both of Biden's comments vs. George Allan's one, taking Biden's 2 comments into totality with minimal MSM coverage they both received it's pretty easy to see who gets a pass and who doesn't, and if you can't admit that then this conversation is over gf-and you're sleeping on the couch.

two snaps.

Definition: grav·i·tas (grv-täs)

1. Substance; weightiness:
2. A serious or dignified demeanor: "

IMO, he is NOT lacking at all.

Along with that dignified demeanor is an aura of grace that no one else can touch.

Obama wouldnt pick Gore. Isn't he trying to break free of the Clinton/Bush legacies, which Gore is a part of? Obama would lose all his credibility about being a candidate of "change" or "the future" or whatever it is he says.

Is there still hubbub from certain quarters about assassination fears for Obama?

Maybe Obama should go with Clinton as VP - surely the same people who would want to assassinate Obama are the same people who would rather eat their own feet than see Clinton as president.

Knowing Clinton would take over as president would surely give them pause in their plans.

Geez....That is an awful premise
I see what you are saying, but I don't think the Obama camp will select vp based on the likelihood of his dimise. Ya, let's put our arch-rival in the VP slot just to piss off the pyschos out there in case you murder me. Nevermind what the majority of the American people feel. wth??

She is the last one I would pick to be on the ticket with him, and I am not the only Barack supporter that feels that way.
She is tearing this party apart with her negative garbage...
Dividing and poloarzing long time dems like me... and lot's of other own party. This not a unified way to make friends and supporters.

It reminds of Chris Rock's joke about how there will never be a black vice-president...
