yank I came on this about Obama and thought you might like to read it


Below I copied and pasted out of context an excerpt of an interview Tim Russert had with Obama:

MR. RUSSERT: There’s been enormous speculation about your political future, Senator. The man you succeeded in the Senate, Peter Fitzgerald, a Republican, said this recently. “I think there’s a very good chance that Senator Obama is on the Democratic ticket in 2008 as the vice presidential nominee.” Do you agree?

SEN. OBAMA: No. You know, I can’t speculate on those kinds of things. What I have said is that, you know, I’m not focused on running for higher office, I’m focused on doing the job that the people of Illinois just sent me to do.

MR. RUSSERT: But there seems to be an evolution in your thinking. This is what you told the Chicago Tribune last month: “Have you ruled out running for another office before your term is up?” Obama answer: “It’s not something I anticipate doing.” But when we talked back in November of ‘04 after your election I said, “There’s been enormous speculation about your political future. Will you serve your six-year term as United States senator from Illinois?” Obama: “Absolutely.”

SEN. OBAMA: I will serve out my full six-year term. You know, Tim, if you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start looking for new ways of saying things. But my thinking has not changed.

MR. RUSSERT: So you will not run for president or vice president in 2008?

SEN. OBAMA: I will not.

I never said I would pick Obama over Kucinich. But let's get real , Indy, Obama is STILL better than McCain, and Kucinich is NOT an option anymore.

And Ralph Nader is my man, BUT he is a spoiler and never going to win. Nader RUNS because he KNOWS he is NEVER going to win, but to just send a message, and its a SAFE message, because he knows he does NOT have to implement his message, because NADER KNOWS HE IS NEVER GOING TO WIN. Nader has been doing that for decades, because he KNOWS he is NEVER going to win. (Now THAT's independence!!!) But this is really, really BAD TIMING for Nader to NOT win again, because he is going to spoil it, if people keep dissing Obama instead of McCain, and then we will deserve what we set ourselves up for again>>>>Bush's third NEOCON TERM.

If I have a choice of dissing Obama or a Neocon Nazi , I am going to dis the Neocon Nazi every time.

Who do you want for President , Indy? Someone who does white lies and softball pandering, or an INSANE MAN?

And thanks for the post-mortem KUDOS for Tim Russert... well-deserved praise for a good man and savvy journalist.
