Sample a look back you look and find/ Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check

Edwards Endorses Obama
The timing on this is so right that it feels like a good turn in a poem. We all knew it was coming (Did anyone think Edwards would back the Clintons?) but it still feels like a surprise. This would also explain Obama’s calm demeanor post-West Virginia.

For the record: I don’t blame Clinton for sticking through to the very end. If the shoe was on the other foot, and it was Obama who was mathematically in the red, I wouldn’t want him to give it up. Take it all the way to the convention and plan to go out in some kinds glory.

Of War and Golf
Not gulf, but golf. Keith Olbermann goes buckwild on the Administration again. I’m digging the turn of the phrase and the build up.

Is it poetic? Well, at least it makes a stand, mirrors the ridiculous with the tragic, and brandishes language like a fine sword. Adds Jeff Chang As Political Blogger
I’ve been diggin Chang’s take on the primaries and look forward to his views on the rest of this critical political year.

Fight the Power
Has it really been almost 20 years since PE brought the noise? Damn, I’m old.

Luckily, Chuck’s message is alive as ever and if there was ever a year to come on and get down. This is it.

I’m ready and hyped plus I’m amped/ Most of my heroes don’t appear on no stamps

  1. I’m really glad Edwards endorsed Obama. Obama is the strongest candidate in the election by far.However, his policy on economic equality and poverty is mediocre at best. I love Edwards ideas on poverty in America. Clinton had Gore(environmentalist) it would be nice to see that combo in the white house.

  2. As a poet, I am just happy that the age of the Illiterate Presidency* is coming to an end.

    While Obama may be weak in some areas, such as the one you cited, his campaign revolves around not being the perfect candidate with all the answers but the right candidate who can find the people with the right answers.

    Thanks for commenting. I’m looking forward to reading your future blog pots.
