How come our leading media don't ask the candidates questions about the big domestic issues that bear upon everybody's lives, instead letting candidates expose themselves, utter some cute little sound bite, then quickly slither off leaving us uninformed or misled?

asks if it isn't time to acknowledge what this is really about, then proceeds to offer a compelling insight.

People find it hard or impossible to change their temperaments. Whichever candidate we elect, we're going to have to live with this temperament and its consequences (including his VP) for longer than we will probably wish had been the case.

Isn't it time to acknowledge finally what this appointment was all about?

A temper tantrum of John McCain, because he couldn't have Joe. This is insulting to the voters and a good sign of things to come if McCain is elected.

I wonder how great the impact on the convention will be and if Palin even makes it through Friday as a candidate.
