Good -- No, Great -- News
Via ArchPundit, as usual:
Obama to Speak Tuesday Evening, July 27You should be honored. Someday he won't just be giving the keynote address -- he'll be giving the acceptance speech.
Washington, DC- The Kerry-Edwards campaign announced today that Barack Obama, Illinois state senator and the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, will deliver the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, July 27.
“Barack is an optimistic voice for America and a leader who knows that together we can build an America that is stronger at home and respected in the world,” said Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry. “He understands the importance of building an economy that lifts up families and expands opportunity, and I’m honored that he has accepted the invitation to deliver the keynote address.”
This is also good timing. The news will finally come down in the next few days as to who the Illinois Repubs have scraped off the bottom of their shoes to "run" against Obama, and whoever it is, it's likely to consume the media for a couple of weeks. It's already consumed more of my time than I can say, as I prowl around the internet looking for news, dropping in and scaring peaceful bloggers half to death with sudden attacks of commenting.
Is a day of astonishing loveliness out there, when the air has an early June softness but the shadows are deep and blue. All this I figured out standing on the porch getting the mail. If you don't hear from me for awhile I'll be out painting.
