My husband came to bed last night with the news that Obama had finally named a running mate (after sadistically making his poor text messaging faithful wait all day while he dangled the impending announcement before them) and that it wasn't, as I was expecting, Hillary, but was instead Joe Biden. This is change? This is what we've all been waiting for? Yawn. I rolled over and went back to sleep.
The Obama people are worried, as well they should be. And there is no clearer evidence of that than the revisionist history that is already starting to be written. I have predicted for a long time that here will be those who, if McCain wins, will be able to see no other reason for it than racism, but I must say I'm surprised to see it starting so early. Puh-leeese. Can we all just be grown-ups about this? The disparity between these candidates is stark and is the result of wide-ranging differences in experience, character, philosophy, and policies. Can we acknowledge that and stop with the whining already?
So now we turn our attention to McCain's pick for VP, coming soon. Does anyone remember my prediction, made some months ago? In a week we'll see if I was right.
