We’re watching history being made tonight and it will happen again in November. Simply awesome. This will be the moment that I will forever remember as having flown 9 hours home from Germany to see a family I’ve longed missed over the past week and had the chance to watch Barack Obama become the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America.
I feel completely at home…Full Story... →
So wtf with that speech? She floats a VP story today then doesn’t concede when it is clear Obama clinched enough delegates to win the nomination? She doesn’t really want a VP slot. So what DOES Hillary want?
Her speech was far from something that I’d think would settle her folks down and get them on the O-train.
Obama is being very gracious in his speech right now and is doing his part to bring them aboard, but as I’ve said ad nauseum at this point: the only person who really can do that is Hillary. She didn’t step […]Full Story... →

When asked about Hillary Clinton, Beatty said: “I would love to see her as vice president.”
Hopefully this is the first drop of the coming super delegate flood toward Obama.Full Story... →
More bad news for Ohio’s workers: I just heard on CNN that GM is going to close its assembly plant in Moraine, Ohio. The plant currently employs 2,500 workers and makes trucks and SUVs.
GM also announced that they will be adding a third shift to the Lordstown plant that makes the Cobalt.
High gas prices have decreased demand for trucks and increased demand for more efficient compact cars like the Cobalt. That, I suppose, is some good news for the people in Lordstown and for the environment.
Now if only we had a Casino in Ohio we could […]Full Story... →
