Chance to Shine

Barack Obama will be the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention. Wow! This is heady stuff for a man who, while a quickly rising star, has yet to even win his position in the Senate.
Speaking of Obama, did you catch him and Edwards standing alongside each other and smiling - looking, oh, so political and shiny - at Wednesday night's fundraiser at the Chicago Hilton and Towers? It all looked very a futuristic sort of way. Could Edwards-Obama be the Democratic ticket for the 2012 election? (This is presuming John Kerry wins this year and keeps the the Republicans at bay for two terms, which is highly possible.)

Speaking of future presidential candidates, Hillary Rodham Clinton was dissed by her fellow Democrats when they bypassed her for a speaking role - any speaking role! - at the convention.
Man, Ms. Clinton can't be happy about this, although she is maintaining a take-one-for-the-team game face. She is being bypassed for the unknown wife of a relatively unknown governor who was recently bypassed by Kerry for the vice presidency nomination. Do you know who Christie Vilsack is? Thought so.
Ouch. Ms. Bill gets less repect than Magglio Ordonez.
I have a feeling Bill Clinton won't be in charge of the remote control for the next few days. I have a feeling he'll conveniently find a "project" in the garage that needs immediate tending to.

Yes, she will now now speaking. They changed it around. Bill must have said something. (Insert smiling emoticon here.)

I wouldn't say it was Bill doing it, it was something to do with outrage that Women Democrats showed. This is just to avoid protesters. Smart PR move.
