The Whining Has Begun For The GE..........UPDATE

Yes Obama's press is whining all ready.....The GOP is going to go after their "Precious"

GOP dirty tricks machine readies a charge that Obama is not eligible to be president

UPDATE: A MUST READ

The Friends of O
Inside the circle of Chicagoans who spotted Barack Obama's talent, helped guide his path—and made it hard for him to close the deal (even before the Reverend Wright eruptions)

Here is a piece by PJB that you may want to read.

How Obama won – and may win again

Pat seems to give both sides of the story in a way.

McCain, Obama Clash Over Ties to Lobbyists

Have you heard?

Johnson resigns

Obama and his campaign staunchly defended Jim Johnson against the charge that his ties to troubled mortgage lender Countrywide disqualified him from sitting on Obama's vice presidential search committee, but Johnson just pulled the plug: He resigned as chairman of the steering committee just now.

“Jim did not want to distract in any way from the very important task of gathering information about my vice presidential nominee, so he has made a decision to step aside that I accept. We have a very good selection process underway, and I am confident that it will produce a number of highly qualified candidates for me to choose from in the weeks ahead. I remain grateful to Jim for his service and his efforts in this process,” Obama said in a statement.

Johnson also put out a statement.

"I believe Barack Obama's candidacy for president of the United States is the most exciting and important of my lifetime," he said, according to a Bloomberg report. "I would not dream of being a party to distracting attention from that historic effort."

Johnson also decried the "blatantly false statements and misrepresentations" that he said were at the center of the controversy.

Both McCain and Obama have set for themselves high standards of purity while running what are, after all, political campaigns; these feeding frenzies are consequences, in part, of how easy it is to write about internal contradictions and hypocrisy.

The other story out there along these lines, that Obama, who -- unlike McCain -- won't raise money from lobbyists, has to do with the Democratic National Convention: how it will raise its money, and if a lobbyist can continue to lead its fundraising.

I read this today and found it a little disturbing.

From JohnMcCain.com:

Overturning Roe v. Wade

John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench.

Constitutional balance would be restored by the reversal of Roe v. Wade, returning the abortion question to the individual states. The difficult issue of abortion should not be decided by judicial fiat.

However, the reversal of Roe v. Wade represents only one step in the long path toward ending abortion....

John McCain is not going to overturn Roe v Wade. If you would really do some research you would know that. If you would have read my post from yesterday you would know how I stand.

Did Bush overturn it? That was a big promise of his!
