The thrill is gone
Barack Obama might have turned Chris Matthews' head back in February, but you didn't really think he could forget his true love, did you? I bring this up because I just saw Lynn Sweet (per Matthews: "the person who knows Obama better than anybody") on Hardball. I don't claim to have seen every episode, and probably wouldn't admit it if I had, but I don't recall having seen Lynn Sweet on Hardball when the Democratic nomination was in doubt. She was a guest on April 28, but I believe that was her first 2008 appearance. You can always find a reporter from a presidential candidate's home state who will say bad things about him; it's piece of cake. Now that Obama's up against St. McCain, I suspect that we'll be seeing a lot more of Ms. Sweet. Funny how little we saw of her when Obama was campaigning against the cackling bitch and the hypocrite with the expensive haircut.
