Some time ago, I posted some info about Obama's connection to BIG MONEY and of course we still hear the tired old red herrings of Obama being a commie, etc. I find the people who make those claims are clueless to the fact that the "REPUBLICAN" they will vote for has himself made votes in the past that on a technical basis would qualify in ways to make the great Karl Marx proud. But that said, let's get back to Obama. Seems the "Great Messiah" is among some progressives not going to get his ride into Jerusalem on palms if they have anything to do with it! From the May 5th Counterpunch website: http://www.counterpunch.org/martens05052008.html From today's Counterpunch: http://www.counterpunch.org/martens05062008.html And if you think this means automatic Hillary, guess again: http://www.counterpunch.org/santina04232008.html Amazing how at one time it looked such a sho in for a democrat to take the WH and now instead we may see the 3rd "democrat" John McCain take it all! Well the good news is that bothsides are losing more and more of their core base to frustration and many are finding common ground in the 3rd party world. A very healthy thing IMHO.
