The case for Barack Obama, in broad strokes:
He has within him the possibility to change the direction and tone of American foreign policy, which need changing; his rise will serve as a practical rebuke to the past five years, which need rebuking; his victory would provide a fresh start in a nation in which a fresh start would come as a national relief. He climbed steep stairs, born off the continent with no father to guide, a dreamy, abandoning mother, mixed race, no connections. Obama and the Runaway Train The race, the case, a hope for grace.
He rose with guts and gifts. He is steady, calm, and, in terms of the execution of his political ascent, still the primary and almost only area in which his executive abilities can be discerned, he shows good judgment in terms of whom to hire and consult, what steps to take and moves to make. We witnessed from him this year something unique in American politics: He took down a political machine without raising his voice.

Yes, his close associates are very, very pro-American.
What planet does this woman live on?
The Planet ObamaNoid?
She may as well run on over the HuffPost and be a writer for them. I have lost all respect for her point of view and it is clear who she plans to vote for this election..she is on the Obama train...
If she ever was really an important speech writer for Reagan he must be spinning in his tomb!
No thanks...I prefer to do my puking from one too many drinks ;)
To think that I held this woman in very high esteem before this election year...I’m starting to think that staying single was the best move I’ve made so far...apparently I can’t pick them too well.
She’s like half-Rachel Maddow/half-Mike Murphy and all Lincoln Chaffeee.
What is wrong with this woman??
Huh? This settles it.
Peggy been replaced by a pod person.
She has gone off the deep end.
It’s all about style with her and not substance!
Her elitism gets in her way of seeing the truth.
Why don’t she just go ahead and spit on Ronald Reagan’s grave while shes at it!
Peggy is a low life P.O.S.
Noonan has a man-crush on the anointed “0”ne...
Peggy and all the RINO’s are no longer welcome on this forum in my lowly opinion.
Never again will I consider her a conservative Republican.
Peggy is suffering from a severe case of the Marxist Obama tingle. She’ll make a good lefty.
“He took down a political machine without raising his voice.”
He didn’t need to. Not when he has 95% of the newspapers, news networks, and internet in the tank for him. Not to mention a ridiculous amount of money from sources we dont know.
Reads like an ass-kissing job interview essay to be stapled to her application for a job with Obama, Inc.
I think she’s a literary star %ucker.
Liberalism is a mental disorder and Peggy has become certifiable.
I was thinking that she was a hollow woman but now I am thinking that she’s actually got s#%^ between her ears.
