IT'S BECOMING KNOWN THAT IMPLODES THEIR CAMPAIGNS:

Now that he's known, Obama positions his image (Christina Bellantoni, June 23, 2008, Washington Times)

Sen. Barack Obama's team once worried that the presidential hopeful was widely unknown, but now he faces a challenge in making sure voters know the right things about the presumptive Democratic nominee. [...]

The problem is, many don't know much about his background or where he stands on the issues, and Republicans and groups working for his defeat in November are working to define him on their terms.


Every four years--except when they nominate a Southern Evangelical governor--we go through the same process. Voters find out that the Democrats nominated a stock Northern liberal and decide to vote for the Southwestern conservative instead.

But McCain isn't conservative enough! He is civil to Democrats! He has yelled at Republicans! I want a candidate who will go into Congress, rip out Ted Kennedy's spine, and beat him to death with it! And that's just for warming up!*

*The cry of the 'true conservative', disappointed in the Republican party once again.

Restrain spending. Pick non-activist judges. Defend the country. That's enough.
