Biden may have restated his mother's message in more adult terms, but I certainly recognized everything he was saying because I had Irish neighbors who lived by that code.

Joe betrayed us with the bankruptcy bill, but before then he'd been a real soldier for working class Americans.

I'm very happy with this convention so far, and am feeling good about this fall.

C'mon - his mom looked like she didn't even know what the heck he was talking about.

The Barriers to Bankruptcy Bill was a serious betrayal, one that calls into question Joe's sense of honor. Now I guess he'll be redeemed by his loyalty. I can't wait to find out where those loyalties lie.

re: the convention

My opinion doesn't matter to the Dems but I'm looking forward to watching Obama tonight. He's really got to thread the needle and no matter what he does, the people who tell people what to think will say that he failed to give enough real information about how he plans to get all this great change in place. They're smart to hammer him on this since poll after poll shows that people are always suspicious of pols who talk about change. They are held to a higher standard of proof than other pols.

If he builds the whole thing around a new energy economy and challenges/inspires us around our own Apollo project, I think he can get it done. (I've been giving candidates this advice since 2004.) Anything less and he probably will fail. On the bright side, he will be able to be redeemed by his loyalty.

  • "[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."

    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.
