Crooks and Liars ? Newsweek's got a problem: Omits own poll that has Hillary beating McCain : "The "press loves McCain" narrative is made crystal clear by Newsweek when they failed to mention the polling data from their big cover story about Hillary and Obama:" Is America Ready?" Hillary beat McCain and Giuliani in their own internal poll. Wouldn't that have been a huge story? Matthews constantly tells his audience that Giuliani and McCain destroy Hillary in every poll he sees. Early polls don't really very mean much at all, but you can see how the media narrative is being played out already."Oops. Or maybe it is sadly incompetent.
For the record, I am not a huge Hillary fan. I respect her ability, but don't particularly like her. Of course, she fits a big part of my 2008 requirement--she is smarter than the average park bench, though that bar might be a little low. She can speak in complete sentences, and is smart enough to know the difference between Shia and Sunni.
But she is cold and comes off as some kind of borg. Obama is a breath of fresh air--and threatens to reach into much of the McCain constituency. Except for those who still think McCain is a "straight talker." Right. Like when he bashed Falwell, but then kissed his ass this year at Liberty "University."
Obama comes off as a real person--who is actually interested in complexity and finding solutions. Compared to McCain he is an easy choice.
