Tim Russert

Why does he hate Hillary so much? And why does he want to starve Grandma?

...adding, watching Obama he still comes off as compelling as ever but it occurs to me that like Bill Bradley, he seems like a candidate who could have been President 100 years ago but struggles to get his message out today. He's more eloquent than any other candidate on the stage when he wants to be, yet his stumbles seem to portray an almost disinterest in running a presidential campaign. There is almost no way for a candidate like him to cut through in today's environment. While it's conceivable there might be a way, Obama is obviously a bit unsure of what it is. Hillary's greatest strength, and what I find oddly refreshing but perhaps others find cold and calculating, is she is not particularly interested in presidential campaign oratory and in a way almost embraces her inner technocrat.

I'm only 30 years old, but I've had just about enough of grand presidential speechifying.
