If Carter won because he convinced people he could be trusted after Nixon's crimes, then it seems like HRC's competence would be the natural contrast to GWBush and the last 8 years. It's hard to believe that the Democrats could let competence trap them, but you're so right about the rhetoric/substance trope. It's ill-fitting in Obama's case, since his public discourse and his work in politics would seem to display both eloquence and competence. Maybe the reference to "finding my voice in the people" in last night's speech was the moment when she began to talk with more imagination and vision. We shall see.

Before any of the elections are decided, though, we have the 2008 NBA draft. It's the best thing for a wolves fan to focus on this January .... just dreaming of ping pong balls ......
