DNC DAY 2: "No way, no how, no McCain," says Clinton

CLINTON: "I am a proud supporter of Barack Obama..."

Consider the hatchet buried. Now, with only two days left in the DNC, the real challenge is setting up the Democratic Party in stark contrast with the Republicans and John McCain.

Briefly noted...

...Shame on Wolf Blitzer and the other pundits speculating on the potential effect of Hurricane Gustav making landfall in the gulf on the eve of the Republican Convention. To politicize a hurricane that threatens the safety and livelihood of a region--and a hurricane that hasn't even struck yet--is beyond despicable. We don't need a fresh hurricane to remind us of the unmitigated disaster that was the U.S. government's response to Katrina, (and a bipartisan disaster, at that.)

Also briefly noted...

...Shame on Bill Clinton if he chooses to skip Obama's keynote speech on Thursday. What is there to lose in attending? Not much. What is there to gain? Oh, let's see, a unified front on the road to a Democratic White House?

Don't even get me started on this guy. 12 months ago, I had so much respect for Bill Clinton. During my cross-country move last year, on the way from South Texas to Indiana, I stopped in Hope, Arkansas, just to see where the man was born. But after his antics during the primaries, and now during the general. Ugh.
