Mike Huckabee is a firm believer that the road to the White House runs through the boob tube. Thus far, he has appeared with Jay Leno and David Letterman. Here he is with Stephen Colbert:
In one of yesterday’s posts, I suggested that perhaps it is time for some folks to consider dropping out of the presidential race. With that in mind:
The man who gave us four additional years of George W. Bush has endorsed Barack Obama for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
Big whoop, I say.
CHARLESTON, S.C. â€“ Senator John Kerry embraced the presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama here on Thursday, saying Mr. Obama â€œhad the greatest potential to lead a transformation, not just a transition.â€
â€œWho better than Barack Obama to bring new credibility to Americaâ€™s role in the world and help restore our moral authority?â€ Mr. Kerry said, speaking at a rally at the College of Charleston. â€œWho better than Barack Obama to turn a new page in American politics, so that Democrats, independents and Republicans alike can look to the leadership that unites to find common ground.â€
Mr. Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat who was the partyâ€™s presidential nominee in 2004, said he was endorsing Mr. Obamaâ€™s candidacy because he believed he was uniquely situated to inspire â€œmillions of Americans to join together and come together in a movementâ€ to demand real change in Washington.
While it is true that Mr. Kerry selected Mr. Obama to deliver the keynote address at the DNC in Boston (the speech that started Mr. Obama on the road to where he is today), it is also true that Mr. Kerry selected John Edwards to be his vice presidential running mate. Remember all the grief that Al Gore got four years ago when he endorsed Howard Dean instead of his former running mate, Joe Lieberman?
I know many Democrats do not want to hear this, but Barack Obama reminds me a lot of Howard Dean… same message, same speaking style, same energy. Does anybody remember?
