basketballfailJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?  Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., speaks during the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Monday, Aug. 25, 2008.  DENVER (AP) — Michelle Obama declared "I love this country" Monday as she sought to reassure the nation that she and her husband Barack share Americans' bedrock values and belief in a dream of a better future.In the first major address at the Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama described herself as a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mother, no different from many women. She told a boisterous crowd waving signs reading "Michelle" that she and her husband feel an obligation to "fight for the world as it should be" to ensure the promise of a better life for their daughters and all children.Michelle Obama talked about tucking in her daughters Malia and Sasha at night."I think about how one day, they'll have families of their own. And one day, they &#x2...

05-11-07-McCaskill-photoThe latest evidence?  While the quote has been pushed by the GOP, the Obama campaign has pushed back — and others in the room say the quote lacked context.  So is Obama arrogant? Claire McCaskill doesn’t think so. The Missouri Senator told voters in Springfield today that she hears the criticism. “They say that he is arrogant. That he’s unpatriotic.  8220;I know this man. He is humble. He is devoutly Christian. He loves his family more than anything else in the world. He cares about family. He reveres our men and women and uniform.  8220;He will tell you that this election is not about him, and he means it,” said McCaskill.  Big difference between arrogance and confidence.  Obama is most definitely The most arrogant politician in the senate today, He and Kerry would, and do get along great. He walks around like he has this campaign in the bag, just like John Kerry thought. American people are not stupid,come November they will show all the liberal media how po...

160_ap_michelle_080825Uninsured or just 'insured' in another way?  Mark Davis, radio guy and contributing columnist for us, is in Denver for the Democratic convention. He will provide semi-regular updates for the blog.  Talk show number one is in the books from the DNC, and I'm exhausted.  Throw in a 4 a.m.  But that next burst of adrenaline is never far away. I have somehow crashed the party of ABC Radio Network coverage each night, and I'm told we're going to do a run-through a little before noon. I've been to every convention since 1996, but this is the first time I'll get to roam the floor with a wireless headset.  I enjoyed a snootful of analysis from the Steve and Cokie Roberts power couple this morning. Steve's highlight was his belief that Mitt Romney will be the John McCain running mate, which Cokie thought unwise.  I just hope we can dispense with the absurdity of the Joe Lieberman buzz or the gimmickry of finding a suitable woman.  We'll see.  There is at least some nuance amid the swirl of autho...

jimmy-carterBY REID J.  2004Four decades after Hamer and 28 years after Jordan spoke, Barack Obama introduces himself to a national audience with his "Audacity of Hope" speech in 2004 in Boston. Instantly he vaults from an Illinois state senator to 2008 presidential hopeful and turns the title of the speech into a book that tops the bestseller lists. In Denver this week, he will be the first African-American to head a major party presidential ticket.  In his debut on the national stage, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton's nominating speech in Atlanta for Michael Dukakis was so boring that when he said "in conclusion" people cheered. Four years later Clinton, nicknamed "The Comeback Kid," gave his Democratic acceptance speech at Madison Square Garden and was later elected president of the United States. In '96, he deftly swatted away GOP challenger Bob Dole's appeal to old-time values by proposing to build "a bridge to the 21st century" and coasted to re-election.     1988Ann Richards, then the Texas stat...

medium_osuendRock Paper Scissors champ gets bronze in China...  9px; color: #977f46 !  AMHERST - Hashim Bailey checked out the University of Massachusetts campus Thursday, liked what he saw and said he'd be back.  Next month, in fact.  I'm going to be here," said Bailey, a 6-foot-10, 273-pound forward who visited the campus, and plans to transfer from Memphis to the UMass men's basketball program.  Playing behind Joey Dorsey at Memphis, I wasn't going to get much playing time. I've had to wait my turn," he said.  As a transfer, Bailey will have to wait another year. He'll sit out the 2008-09 season at UMass, and become eligible in the fall of 2009, with two years of eligibility remaining.  Since Bailey has not yet formally transferred, UMass coach Derek Kellogg cannot comment on him. Kellogg is certainly familiar with Bailey, having served as an assistant on the Memphis staff during the forward's two years on John Calipari's team.  Bailey, 21, is from Paterson, N.J. He played in 14 games for Memphi...

185784148_8e16e80023Find it in today's St.  St.  Web Search powered by YAHOO!  GOP veteran Newt Gingrich, noting that there will be “a lot of energy surrounding the Obama campaign,” says McCain needs “to find ways to generate a substantial amount of energy.” Two prime prospects, according to The Washington Times, are Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former CEO and current McCain adviser Carly Fiorina.  For Barack Obama, almost all the talk revolves around a half-dozen or so elected male officials, including such attractive possibilities as Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana.  McCaskill possesses a strong fiscal and law-enforcement background, having been a prosecutor and state auditor in Missouri.  And then there’s Laura Tyson — whom no one, publicly at least, is talking about, but who might be an exceptional choice. Like McCaskill, Tyson would bring strong government and public policy experience without an inside-the-Beltway resume, plus a personable approach. She’d also add...
