There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is that I'm just as sick of the whole thing as the rest of you are. I've spent almost my entire life as a political junkie and I still can't wait for this to end.
Then there's my firm conviction that the whole thing will sort itself out on it's own. That conviction is waning the longer this drags out, btw.
That being said; I'd like to make two quick observations.
Obama's speech today on the Wright flap and race was Lincolnesque. I do not use that description lightly.
Text of the whole thing can be found at the NYT website.
The other is a short, semantic observation. If you check the dictionary the antonym of the word "hope" is not "pragmatism."
Some people seem to have lost sight of that simple reality.
