I have been following the 2008 presidential campaign with a great deal of interest. Obviously, the Republican side is all but decided.
The Democrats, living up to Will Roger’s expectations¹, are still fighting it out. At the moment, that’s a figurative expression, but it could become literal!
Tuesday night is the last of the internecine Democratic debates, this time in Cleveland. It will be carried by MSNBC.
Tonight, they ran the graphic pictured above, promoting their coverage. Where are Obama and Clinton? Aren’t they what the debate is all about?
Far be it for me to criticize “hey look at me” journalism. Still, we’re electing a president. Maybe for this one night, the four horsemen could take a back seat?
By the way, I originally saw this graphic with just Brian Williams and Tim Russert. I wonder if there’s any backstory with the addition of Olbermann and Matthews?
