Obama Shines in Ohio Debate, Clinton Shines and Whines to Moderators both candidates were, once again, excellent on the issues ... but what was Hillary doing complaining to Brian Williams that she's always asked the first questions in debates - this is supposed to be Presidential?

Hillary Clinton Swings Wildly at Obama - Saturday Night Live Provides Comic Relief and Obama Girl Hillary's attack on Obama for his depiction of her health care plan is just last ditch desperation ... meanwhile, Saturday Night Live offered some good comic relief, with a cameo from Obama girl .. far better than the Ohio gov nodding like a puppet behind Hillary when she attacked Obama...

New York Times Needs Named Sources for McCain Lobbyist Story Unnamed sources have their role in journalism. But in a story of this magnitude, concerning someone who has all but received the Republican nomination for President, the public interest requires real names of real sources...

Obama Success Disproves His Critique of Television and Video Games One segment I didn't like in Obama's otherwise excellent speech last night was his whipping television and video games as activities we must pull our kids away from ... but the very generation that is leading Obama's successful revolution was raised on TV and video games, and refutes the view that these media engender public apathy.

Barack Obama May Be The Greatest Orator of our Time Obama's speech tonight at Jefferson-Jackson Democratic was a pleasure to behold and hear on television. The best part was Obama's confrontation of the charge that he's an idealist, with pie-in-the-sky hopes. His answers swept through the best of American history ... It's hard to imagine anyone with any sensitivity not being moved.

MSNBC: Stop Sniping at Hillary I'm an Obama supporter, but MSNBC has got to stop its ad hominem attacks on Hillary Clinton and her campaign... they unfortunately go well beyond David Shuster's outrageous comment about "pimping out" Chelsea... Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann on MSNBC have also contributed to this problem...

Cylon Mitt Romney Exits Race Mitt Romney's withdrawal speech was about as Neanderthal and ugly a speech as a Republican - or anyone - ever made. It should be a wake-up call for all Democrats and people who love freedom and truth to redouble their efforts.
