Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

It’s Just Starting to Get Funny

  4. Ok, I’ll do it again. You do not want your candidate to peak too early. I got tired of saying it in 2003 (for Dean) and 2004 (for Kerry), but it’s still true.

    Since I don’t like to underestimate the enemy, I’m getting mentally prepared for a substitute to be brought in at the Republican Convention, which starts on Labor Day, after the Democrats have finished their love feast.

    Think it will let the air out of their balloons to suddenly have to face another candidate/ticket?

    I know it’s a popular conspiracy, but McCain will be the GOP nominee.
