Required Reading

David Brooks on Obama's fall from grace. I especially agree that the pandering both he and HRC did during the debate around taxes and Iraq painted them into a corner they can't possibly get out of. Bob Herbert's good, too. President McCain, here we come.

This is rather unrelated, but I listened to Gordon Brown give a speech last night. He was talking about how we need to have a more global view on issues like trade and the workforce.

This is interesting in regard to the presidential canidates and congress who are wanting us to keep jobs here and rejecting open trade.

Something to ponder.

Or read Frank Rich today. Which is why I no longer watch television for politics, be it "debates" or "news". It's a waste of my time, and a waste of everyone else's. Nothing substantive is discussed -- or if it is it is so buried beneath pointless 'gotcha' issues and egghead opinions as to be as good as lost in the stream of dangerously trivial blather. I'm not terribly concerned with the latest -- it's a long haul to the elections, and more inane idiocy will happen (and be endlessly and pointlessly disected) before it's over.
