Still packing. I'm actually kind of glad this is the week I'm moving. It's kept me from being glued to the tv screen watching the Democrats' convention. The speech by Barack Obama wasn't all that. Much like Clinton speeches, it was a lot of words that said very little. I am glad that the Dems are trying to take guys like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson out of the limelight, though. Obama isn't as adversarial as the two elder Democrats. Despite his assurances, I think he's too close to the various Chicago machines to be of any use to his non-Chicago area constituents.
I'm still hoping for someone to show up on the Republican side of the ballot this year. Come on, [i]somebody[/i] do this so I don't have to!
