Smiling face, that is. Sarah Palin has thus far proved to be a game-changer in this election. The Republicans can now run on Obama's theme of change, and convincingly so.
I must profess I really don't understand the Obama phenomenon. In my view, he's a fundamentally flawed candidate because his resume it too thin. (But it won't always be that way!) When was the last time you saw the need for a presidential candidate to compare their resume with the vice-presidential candidate from the other camp?
Be that as it may, Obama is still a formidable phenomenon because roughly half of our voting populace likes him. Hopefully, his supporters understand that his opponent is a very qualified candidate that is also supported by roughly half the voting populace.
But what if Obama loses? How will his supporters react? Will they accept defeat or deny it? I hope they give that some thought before the first Tuesday in November.
