What Doesn’t Obama Want Us to Know?
It’s hard to put out a fire by pouring gasoline on it, so many are amazed the Obama campaign is trying this technique. The fire Sen. Obama wants to douse was small until his aides arrived with gas cans. For months, conservatives have been trying to direct attention to the relationship between Mr. Obama and William Ayers. Bill Ayers was a leader of the Weather Underground, which planted bombs in the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon during the Vietnam war. He went on the lam after a nail bomb his group was building to kill soldiers and their wives at a dance at Fort Dix went off prematurely, killing three of the conspirators.

The Transformation of Obama
WASHINGTON — The setting invited comparisons to John F. Kennedy. The anniversary invited comparisons to Martin Luther King Jr. The stage invited comparisons to Zeus. The remarks themselves invited comparisons to every Democratic stump speech of the last 20 years. In substance, Barack Obama’s convention speech could easily have been given by Al Gore or John Kerry — and, in various forms, was given by Kerry and Gore. It was all in there: the lunchbox economic populism — based on the assumption that most Americans are filling their lunchboxes with scraps from dumpsters. The attacks on corporations, millionaires and other sinister job creators. The touching faith in the power of diplomacy.
