How to Become A Major Party Nominee Without Ever Saying Anything Of Substance

I'm listening to Barack Obama give the same speech that he has given after every primary since January and wondering when he's going to start saying something.
Tonight John McCain laid out a platform for reform and change. He gave specifics, yet his speech was without the rhetorical flourish which has carried his opponent to the Democratic nomination.

His opponent gave a speech in which he used words like, "change" and "reform" yet was completely empty when it came to details. If anyone out there would like to dispute that, I'm listening. Good luck.

While the general election is just heating up, Americans should give a collective sigh of relief, when they realize what a bullet they dodged by denying Senator Clinton the Oval Office.

Her speech this evening represents at least a temporary end to the possibility that one of the most dishonest individuals whom I've ever seen perform on the American political stage, will ascend to our nation's highest office.

One down. One to go.

William Bennett sums it up well .

My Old Party [William J. Bennett]
First the Good News:

"This is an astounding moment in American politics. You cannot credibly say the Clintons are a political dynasty the way, say, the Kennedys or Bushs are. But I think one has to say the Clinton rule of the Democratic party has been dynastic. Bill Clinton is the only Democrat to have served two terms as president in two generations, the only Democrat to twice beat Republican nominees for president and his wife is a two term U.S. senator who will likely be in the Senate for years to come. Bill Clinton has been rated one of — if not THE — most popular person in the world, and yet Clinton rule in American politics ends tonight. Whatever it was the Republicans and so many independents did not like about the Clintons, we’ve learned the Democrats have had enough as well."

"And thus the Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of George McGovern, albeit without McGovern’s military and political record. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far-left candidate in the tradition of Michael Dukakis, albeit without Dukakis’s executive experience as governor. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of John Kerry, albeit without Kerry’s record of years of service in the Senate. The Democratic party is about to nominate an unvetted candidate in the tradition of Jimmy Carter, albeit without Jimmy Carter’s religious integrity as he spoke about it in 1976. Questions about all these attributes (from foreign policy expertise to executive experience to senatorial experience to judgment about foreign leaders to the instructors he has had in his cultural values) surround Barack Obama. And the Democratic party has chosen him."

I guess that's good news too.

Allah bless this country if this man becomes President. There may come a time when when we look back and Hillary will look like a political messiah to us.
