But the best reported tea leaves come from the Associated Press, whose reporting has been confirmed by The Page, regarding John and Elizabeth Edwards:
"The couple has been impressed with Clinton, who has more effectively courted them since the 2004 vice presidential nominee dropped out, people who talk to the Edwardses say. Obama has been less attentive, they say, and some of those close to the Edwardses have been annoyed that Obama has continued to ridicule him for once saying his biggest weakness is that he has a powerful response to seeing pain in others."
for any head-to-head GE polls. Touting these stupid things is what the corporate media does. Because they're too stupid and too lazy to actually analyze anything, they play show-and-tell with POLLS for their entertainment and amusement.
But I will add that I'm scared of an Obama presidency - partly because of his nasty, freeper-like cult followers, a creepy breed that I believe he has intentionally encouraged (think Obama Camp) - and mostly because I believe Obama is going to give away the store, meaning Democratic principles, to the republicans in the name of "bipartisan unity."
Plus, there are a lot of GOOD, positive, well-researched reasons I support Hillary Clinton.
on ObamaPhilia - here's a piece of the transcript:
CAROL COSTELLO: Many political observers say they've never seen anything like it. Thousands wait in line to see him, and it seems with every speech, they always latch onto Obama's three favorite words.
OBAMA: Yes, we can.
CAROL COSTELLO: Obama supporters wildly respond, chanting enthusiastically along with their candidate. But it's a scene some increasingly find not inspirational but "creepy."
that the media are a friend. If you're a true progressive, then you've known for years what the media are and always have been - and honest, fair, and without an agenda are not on the list.
But all of a sudden, since they're temporarily over the moon for your candidate, since they're blatantly biased in favor of your candidate (until he's up against their beloved McCain, of course) you're "arguing," and we're supposed to buy the BS that you believe they're all of a sudden honest brokers? You don't believe that for one second - and if you do you're an idiot. But what you really are is a liar.
The vicious attacks are levied on Clinton supporters by Obama supporters.
Take this one comment from today as an example:
"Jack Tapper and Taylor Marsh are both dumb as fuck and you should disregard everything they write or risk your own intellgience."
And that's mild...
Jake Tapper is an ABC reporter who doesn't kiss up to Obama - Taylor Marsh is a blogger and radio host who supports Hillary Clinton.
And dkos, tpm, and the others have become intolerant, rightwing-like Obama havens - nobody with a single good thing to say about Clinton or the slightest criticism of Obama need apply. There is NO discussion - either you're for Obama or you are pummeled until you're out. dkos is not for anyone who doesn't goose-step to the "Yes we can!" propaganda.
Free Republic HAS NOTHING ON DKOS - including the sexism, the accusations and the insanity.
