The Democrats' Embarrassment of Riches (Will they EVER be called on it?)

The Democrats' Embarrassment of Riches
By Peter Ross Range

With two of the strongest personalities in Democratic politics vying for the party's presidential nomination, the party is facing a tough choice. But either way the primaries in Ohio and Texas go next week, America stands to gain.

**SPIP**

While Hillary strains to sound inspiring with a voice and style better suited to running policy meetings, Obama, the natural, croons like a political Sinatra. I'm seduced by the idea that we as Americans can rise above some of our differences, and, yes, that just having Barack and Michelle in the White House, throwing the obligatory state dinners--"Hello, President Sarkozy! Hello, King Fahd! Hello, President Hu Jintao!--would set the world back on its heels a bit. Michelle Obama, with her forthright style and raw intelligence, is becoming a super-star in her own right. The very thought of an African-American First Lady takes my breath away. America is different; America is about the future; let's try to get it right.

I constantly feel the ground shifting under me. It shows, if nothing else, that we Democrats are, for once, blessed with an embarrassment of riches, almost a no-lose situation. Is it a landslide? An avalanche? Or just a passing tremor? Never have Democratic Party politics felt so seismic, so unpredictable. Or so good.

Actually, her voice is better suited to exhorting crazed feminists to burn their bras in the streets, or perhaps enticing the near suicidal to take that last step.

I can’t even understand what he is trying to say.

Now, in his other writings, the guys seems sensible for a progressive.

>>Just listen to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the main insurgent leader. He announced on Jan. 22 that “we have declared bitter war against the principle of democracy. ... Those who vote ... are infidels. ... If a Muslim apostatizes from Islam to heresy, he should be killed ...”

What more do progressives need to know?

Hillary has a voice that keeps divorce lawyers gainfully employed.

This is an American writing for a GERMAN publication. And those Eurotrash weenies are lapping this crap up, no doubt.

just having Barack and Michelle in the White House, throwing the obligatory state dinners

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Welcome to Barry and Michelle's White House. All-You-Can-Eat fried chicken and waffles. John F'in Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and Chris Dodd drunk and passed out in a corner of the State Dining Room. Rep. William Jefferson making cash withdrawals from the White House freezer. Empty Courvoisier bottles everywhere.

And I'm proud to be an American...

I see her hocking fish on the streets of Victorian England, a la Eliza Dolittle.

At any rate, she’s missed her calling. I doubt if she sings as well as Audrey Hepburn.

He’s waaaaay to flowery for me! When he started to “wax poetic”, I thought maybe he was one of those recently out of work screen writers. Yuk!

I was trying to say the same thing in my last post-—but a bit more obliquely.
