It’s ten minutes long but really worth it for the vitriol at the end. All well and good, but does he really sign off with Murrow’s iconic “Good night, and good luck.” all the time? Really?
Obama supporters on the Indiana University campus were able to lure students away from a Bill Clinton speech with tickets to a Dave Matthews concert. I’m not sure I can be associated with this campaign any more. Are we positive that this wasn’t a double-cross by the Young Republicans to discredit Obama in the black
Thanks to the intrepid sleuthing of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, today the AP reported that Barack Obama is distantly related to the Bushes, the Cheneys, and Robert E Lee, mostly via people that died shortly after England begat the colonies. [See family tree, right.] Hilary Clinton, whose family functions are apparently more fun,
Just wanted to pass on to the good bikers of Providence that a friend of mine from Boston is organizing a two day cycling event and fundraiser in support of Barack Obama. The two day tour begins in Cambridge on Friday, April 4, at 10:00am and ends in Provincetown on Sunday, April 6, at 1:00pm.
Young people. And jack else. (Except for Providence, I mean. And Fox Point in particular. Woot, woot!) When I went to the SEIU convention back in September, I was impressed by the fact that, for the first time as far as I’d seen, Obama seemed angry. He was finessing a really fine line between impassioned
On my way to work this morning I noticed many campaign banners hanging on highway overpasses, but none was more striking than the one proudly displayed over 95S in the the North End of Providence. “Vote Black Power–It’s Time,” read the message on what, ironically, appeared to be a white sheet. At first I thought,
I’m feeling pretty pooped out on politics right now, but if you’re not, there’s some big stuff going on: Ted Kennedy, in support of Barack Obama, at URI at 12:30 today. (Remember to ask him why he’s trying to kill Cape Wind.) The Guild Follies, tonight at 7pm Barack Obama, on Saturday at noon, at
Here’s my semi-annual posting about the Green Party and instant run-off voting and such. First off, there’s a pretty solid chance that the Green Party nomination will go to somebody other than Ralph Nader, who just announced his fourth consecutive run for the presidency. In particular, it could go to (twice-) former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
This is big, and will move a lot of votes in RI: Two labor sources tell Politico that the giant Service Employees International Union, which has been neutral through the primary, is on the verge of throwing its support to Sen. Barack Obama. “It’s done,” said one person close to the union. SEIU spokeswoman Stephanie
David Sirota has a dead-on deconstruction of the awkward class dynamic that’s evolved on the Democratic side of the presidential race: And so, as Marable says, Obama’s pitch includes “no mention of the class struggle or class conflict.” It is “hope” instead of an economic case, bromide instead of critique. The result is an oxymoronic
Guess this means my childhood friend will have to wait another four years for his dream ticket of Hogan-Powell to run for president: In a move that’s sure to provide a boost to Obama’s fortunes among time-travelling high school kids from the early 1980s, Hulk Hogan – professional wrestler and reality teevee divorcee – has
I posted last week about the possibility of candidates teaming up to beat Clinton in Iowa. So this statement by Edwards (now a few weeks old) caught my eye today: “The differences between Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.) and myself are much more dramatic than the differences between Sen. Obama and myself,” Edwards told reporters after receiving
