Happy President’s Day! and Year!

February 18th, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

Just think, next year on this holiday, they’ll be a different President in the White House!

I wonder who it’ll be?

Some good lines from the last 24 hours . . .

Ron Brownstein from Time said Obama is an amalgam of Gary Hart and Jesse Jackson.

Brian says he’s an amalgam of Howard Dean and Sly Stone.

Mark Shields predicted Al Gore will be Obama’s running mate.  There’s a nice President’s Day vision to play with!

Joe Klein pointed out how both Clinton and McCain’s campaigns were broke at one point, and only Obama has run a steady fiscal ship.

Brian says, keep in mind that Wisconsin, Ohio and Texas are all OPEN primaries to any registered voter!  And the Dems are continuing to set record turn-outs in every state, often by double the prior records!

Margaret Carlson said Hillary has to now convince the country that the person they’ve fallen in love with is really a bad person.

As the Clintons turn nasty, I think of Obama and George Bernard Shaw’s advice: “I learned long ago never to wrestle with a pig.  You’ll get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”

In other good news, Hillary’s leaving Wisconsin!  Off to her next loss.

Tomorrow:  Wisconsin and Hawaii (Obama’s birthplace)

Wednesday:  Brian on your computer speakers, at 12:10 noon, and 11:10PM Eastern

Wednesday night:  Jon Stewart on Larry King for the hour.

Thursday:  the must-see penultimate Democratic debate, 8PM Eastern, CNN.

Friday: a new Will.I.Am Obama video comes out, this one set to Queen’s “We Are The Champions!

enjoy President’s Day!  and New President’s Year!
