I've read most of the first page. I'm excited to read the rest of it.

Both before either.

Obama for VP.

Don't get me wrong... I still like Barak...
and dislike Hillary.
I'm watching Ted Koppel being interviewed by Matt Frie on BBC News America... and they are discussing the likelihood of the Obama-Clinton fight tearing the democratic party apart, and getting one half or the other of the party pissed off and unlikely to vote. I think the term they used was "hard feelings"

I think that Obama in the role of being a "uniter not a devider" (so to speak). he would be great as VP, (and perhaps as a moderating force against her. then he would be in an even better positon to run in 8 years (assuming things go well in the interim) able to counter any charges of inexperience.

Not quite the symbolic role wrt foreign perceptions (and some domestic ones too I guess).

But there is still the issue of VP Bill.

I'd forgotten about that.
Would he take the job officially?
Hmmmm damn.

Or if they can keep it friendly then they'll reap lots of free publicity keeping the contest going... and then come to some sort of deal later on.
as long as it doesn't get violent.

How did I miss this?

Mr President?
What do you know about manticores?
Godamn near everything.


Rather unexpectedly... a slight diversion from my (recently) typical election related news commentary.

I feel as if the only things that I've read today have been about rising comodity prices (most particularly: food).

I've had 2 articles from the Financial Times open in my browser since last week. The first is a guide page to their significant selection of actual articles and content about rising food prices, while the second page that I've had open is the associated multimedia content. Both of which I'm really interested in reading/viewing but which I've not taken the time to yet. Of course I'm sure that having that open has coloured my perception of the days content.

Then over lunch I was reading the WSJ and they also also had a front page article about resource shortages. This time instead of food it was sawdust.

I think there was another article somewhere... it might have this one about the potential of a commodities bubble from the economist.

Anyway I don't really have anything to offer about these except that it paints a bit of a bleak future if news coverage is an accurate indicator of future trends.
Or present trends for that matter.
