I hear that Rick Warren is a nice guy in person. He offered refreshments to the Prop 8 protesters. He actively encourages members of his Saddleback Church to work with those suffering from AIDS in a hands-on fashion. I understand he is warm and very personable.

Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama
Mark Halperin has a brief article up at The Page questioning Obama's strategy of targeting traditionally red states with staff and spending:
But every dollar and every hour spent in places like deeply Republican Georgia divert resources from must win battlegrounds like Michigan. Some strategists wonder, then, if Obama's campaign risks trying to win by a landslide and possibly losing by a hair.

Barack, I always suspected that you had nefarious intentions, and now we all know for sure, thanks to the delightfully informed John McCain. After all, he's a smart guy. He says you're more extreme than Bernie Sanders. And we all know that ole Bernie is a pinko-commie-Jane Fonda-loving-gay rights supporting-believer in the Constitution. Poor Bernie, he just doesn't know how insane it is to supports rights for people.

I recently made an embarrassing mistake which really gave me something to think about. I was out to lunch with a few colleagues, when one person told me he wanted to talk some politics with me. This person and I spoke frequently about politics, and we were both Hillary supporters. A third person chimed in asked me if I was a Republican, and I was a little taken aback by that. The idea makes my skin crawl. Of course, I said "Not in this lifetime!". He then told me that he was, and I should consider voting for John McCain. That one stopped me in my tracks, because he's black.

Michigan. Florida. I'm exhausted from hearing about them. Our primary system stinks, and I think most of us recognize that fact. Florida and Michigan both moved their primary dates in violation of DNC rules. But they weren't alone, except in their punishment. We need to take a serious look at how we nominate our candidate for the next cycle, although I doubt it will happen.

I'm a Hillary supporter. I have been since I first hear her speak in 1992, and I will continue to be a supporter. She'll have my money and my vote whenever she needs it. And Hillary has made it clear that if Obama wins the nomination, she'll be out there supporting him, and so will I.
In that spirit, I made a trip over to Daily Kos this morning, wondering if the tide of unity was at least lapping the shores there yet. It isn't.

In what I find to be a truly startling development, Elizabeth Edwards has been quietly trying to convince her husband, John Edwards, to endorse Hillary Clinton. Elizabeth Edwards has long been a political activist and has spoken publicly about her preference for Hillary's health care plan over Obama's, but I always assumed it stopped there. Apparently , I was wrong.

On a day that was supposed have Barack Obama front and center, we get news that Pennsylvania Rep. and superdelegate Jack Murtha has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President.
Murtha, who represents the 12th district of Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh, was an early and sometimes inflammatory critic of the Iraq war. As a retired Marine Corps colonel and the first combat veteran of Vietnam elected to serve in Congress, Murtha's voice on Clinton's behalf could prove especially valuable in both inoculating her from anti-war criticism and bolstering her claim that she is the most qualified to serve as commander-in-chief. That message is the backbone of Clinton's appearances this week.
