Random thots

Needle in a haystack

  • How many times has the Lieberman-Kyl resolution been discussed in debates? Does anyone remember if it has ever been discussed in a Democratic debate and if not, why do you think that is? Do we in the blogosphere give it more significance than it deserves?
  • Zogby has Obama up by 10 points in South Carolina and Hillary has decided to move on to NJ tonight. (I don’t think I’ll be able to make her event. Getting there during rush hour is a logistical nightmare) But she was trailing in New Hampshire by something like 9 points and managed to win it. So, what will the eventual score be? And has Obama mastered the timing game? After all, South Carolina is still 4 days away.
  • What is behind the underlying antipathy to Hillary Clinton in the left blogosphere and what did it expect from the first Clinton administration? In other words, why was it it “not progressive enough” and what could Clinton have done differently considering the Newt Gingrich Movement Conservatives took over Congress in 1994?
  • Did anyone hear Rene Montagne interviewing Obama this morning on NPR? She was actually pretty good. The questions were definitely not softball. They were more along the lines of: “Bill Clinton is doing the work of a prospective VP and playing attack dog. You’re going to have to face this from the Republican side if you win. What are you going to do then?” Go Rene! Listen to the whole interview here.
  • Controversial random thot of the day: How much of the current vicious divisiveness in the left blogosphere is being instigated by people not on our side?  That is, how many people running around shouting that they’re going to vote for McCain are Republican moles trying to stir up trouble?  By being so open, have we allowed ourselves to be studied and have manipulative messages been tailored for us?  How do we keep our “eyes on the prize” in such an environment?
