By now, most of you know I'm a delegate to the Democratic national convention so I'm following the 2008 presidential election with a microscope.
Imagine my pleasure when I read this passage from an article entitled Is John McCain Stupid?
In this sports-crazed country, everyone has learned a lot about what it takes to win. They've heard and seen it proven repeatedly that to achieve greatness, to win the big one, an athlete has to be ready to "put in the work."
John McCain isn't doing that, yet. He's competing as if he expects the other side to lose it for him. Sen. McCain is a famously undisciplined politician. Someone in the McCain circle had better do some straight talking to the candidate. He's not some 19-year-old tennis player who's going to win the U.S. presidential Open on raw talent and the other guy's errors. He's not that good.
Now if only someone could create the cartoon of Barack Obama and John McCain battling it out on the tennis court.
