All she was missing was an "AAAARRRGH!"

Well howdy-doo - Barack Obama brought forth the "change" he's been promising the first night out of the gate. Namely, he changed the arc of the race last night in Iowa. Hillary's already throwing bombs - called him a "false hope" while probably sporting a raging hangover in Nashua this morning. Obama's victory speech last night was, in contrast, masterful. For those that look for the nuance in such theatre, watch how Barack moves in contrast to the camera, paying attention throughout to the audience. He's the most talented politcian I've ever seen (sorry, Bill). Hillary's tough as nails and is correct when she claims to have been tested through controversy. But everyone in the attentive world knows that the fact that she lost by 9 percent is major. I predict plenty of blood on the floor over the weekend. For those of us that love this sort of tangle, it's primerib time.

Oh, and if Mike Huckabee wins the nomination, I'll buy the world a Coke. I still say you're nuts if you don't see John McCain pulling down that role.

Hope your own balloons drop as planned today. Rock on.

A quick note to the lurker - don't have a clue who you are. Don't mind you taking a peek at what I write. Don't need advice from someone unwilling to un-cloak from behind an "anonymous" tag. But I also wish you the best in '08.
