    wondering every time i read something about the dinner that Obama is having in John McCain's honour tonight, whether or not Sara Palin was invited?  and whether Obama ever asked McCain exactly  why he selected her as Veep?

    It has a lot to do with my distaste of Palin true, but also it has to do with my extreme unhappiness in the manner we tend to recruit candidates for political jobs too.

    One thing that really earns my respect for Obama is that I honestly believe that he decided years ago, probably around the time he wrote 'Dreams of MY Father' that he was going to plan his life around running for the presidencty, and understood exactly what that decision would mean to the world. What he could not have known of course way back then, was that the convergence and confluence of events would make it imperative that he run NOW, and not later.

    I want to make it absolutrely clear that I totally respect him if that is true.   So that means that a woman could be as young as 35 years old right now and maybe in a Phd program somewhere, JFK was 43 when he was elected.
