The day after


obama

The euphoria is over.  And I must admit I shed a few tears.

McCain has given a wonderfully dignified speech upon losing, but more dramatic still was Bush’s brilliant endorsement of Obama’s premiership and his call to arms, so that the current administration do not drop the ball in the 75 days leading up to his governorship.

I liked that.  That took humanity and a certain amount of pride-swallowing.

Good on ya dubbleya.

Hey, maybe we’ll all see the man in a new light.

Apparently Oliver Stone’s movie on the subject, starring Josh Brolin,  is by no means sycophantic but certainly sympathetic.

Do you think Powell might be off McCain’s Christmas card list?

As for McCain’s smile…

Colin Powell Backs Barrack Obama


Is this the end in sight for McCain?

For one of the Republicans’ most respected figures to publicly put his faith in the opposition raises a great deal of doubt about the credibility of McCain’s challenge and the fact that he says it’s because McCain chose Palin as his running mate says it all.

What’s more he feels Obama could be a transformational world figure.

Ouch.
