Hagel won't be his vp choice nor will any other Republican. But if he - or any Republican - is, I won't vote for Obama. There is some crap up with which I will not put. I do expect Hagel and other allegedly moderate Republicans to be part of Obama's cabinet though. Bah.

Probably a Pub won't be Veep, I grant you, but that such speculation is being made with a straight face is bizarre. You're also probably right that Pubs and Blue Dogs will be his Clintonesque Cabinet. Carl Levin as Sec of Defense? Mitt Romney as Sec of Treasury? John Barrow as Labor Sec? And of course, Joe Lieberman as Sec of State.

It's getting so if they ain't hanging off the edge of a cliff wearing tinfoil hats and raving about aliens abducting them, they're considered Centrists, fit and available to be given duties running the country.

Looking at the two parties, you can't tell the players without a scorecard no more, they look so much alike.

Wasn't there a whole bunch of speculation about McCain being Kerry's VP? It's appealing to think that pols will transcend the bickering and fix things. Once you learn about the nature of the problems that idea becomes terrifying.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
