Quick Obama Take

DENVER — I’ll have more, but have to deal with evacuating Invesco right now. As anybody would have expected, it was a strong speech — an indictment of the Bush administration and John McCain’s support for those policies, and a case for the need for change. A case for a modest liberalism where people work hard, but government just ensures that they get rewarded for their work and oppourtunities are open for all. But what stuck out at me was this line: “If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone who people should run from.”

Obama just showed his hand. He has no record, and thus will hope that running against Bush by linking him to McCain will be enough. We shall see.
