The excitement and anticipation is growing every day. Who will Obama pick for VP?
Every name floated out there gets support from some and opposition from others. So, who do YOU want most? Don't say who you THINK Obama will pick. Who do you want among the named frontrunners and legitimate darkhorses?

One of the overarching questions among pollsters this year is why the tracking polls show a closer race than all of the stand-alone polls. One of the reasons cited is that the trackers don't call people back, so they continually get the same kinds of voters who answer the phone on the first pickup. That automatically limits the sample a bit (and eliminated cell-only users).

I just wanted to alert people to the Knoxville Relief Fund. The injured will require long-term medical care. Fortunately, the medical statuses of some of the victims has been upgraded. Tammy Sommers, a friend of mine who was shot in the head and was in critical yesterday yesterday has been updated to serious condition. She is now responding to verbal cues. We are all relieved that her status is improving.

I admit that I watch Fox News now and then. It's like watching a trainwreck - I can't look away. But the semi-serious weekend news shows can sometimes be revealing in ways that neither O'Reilly's buffoonery or CNN's placidity can not.

My family and I took a huge road trip out West this past month. From our home in East Tennessee we went through Memphis, Arkansas, Oklahoma, the Texas Pandhandle, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, southeast Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky and back to Tennessee. It was a wonderful family trip and we saw tons of national parks along the way.
