Convention Minute

Bob Casey does better in two sentences than just about anyone I’ve seen at the DNC: “John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he’s voted with George Bush over 90% of the time. That’s not a maverick, that’s a sidekick.” Hell yes. The four-more-months chant was pretty good, too—too bad no one’s watching yet.

A few politics links:

* Bill Clinton’s got a crazy new argument.

“Right now, among all the primary states, believe it or not, Hillary’s only 16 votes behind in pledged delegates,” said Bill, “and she’s gonna wind up with the lead in the popular vote in the primary states. She’s gonna wind up with the lead in the delegates.”

And if only you count states with four letters that voted in March she’s winning by a ton

* Leahy says the primary’s over.

“There is no way that Senator Clinton is going to win enough delegates to get the nomination. She ought to withdraw and she ought to be backing Senator Obama. Now, obviously that’s a decision that only she can make frankly I feel that she would have a tremendous career in the Senate.”

Reality check, check. Vague moral threat, check. Quiet promise of a bribe, check. Too bad Clinton won’t listen.

* Bob Casey jumps off the fence and endorses Barack. Richardson, Leahy, Casey, Pelosi: are the supers finally moving?

* Ezra has your definition of the day.

“National Greatness” is what results when unacknowledged feelings of sexual inadequacy manifest themselves as a theory of foreign policy.
