If You Can't Stand the Heat, and All That

So Senator Obama finds criticism of his wife "infuriating."

Then why does he have her campaign and make speeches on his behalf? If you're going to be a political player and take on a significant role campaigning for your husband to have the most important job in the country -- and especially if you make controversial statements -- then you'd better be prepared to have your statements critiqued.

On another Obama topic, exercise is a great thing, but how does Senator Obama have time to make multiple gym visits per day while campaigning for President?

It crossed my mind that after one workout, he might want to be spending the rest of his free time with his daughters?

P.S. Shortly after I wrote the above paragraph, I came across this interesting post regarding Obama's thoughts on spending time with children -- including his own -- at The Campaign Spot.

Like I was saying...

Friday Update: Thanks to Dana for this marvelous column by Charles Krauthammer. Given Dr. Krauthammer's background as a psychiatrist, I find his thoughts especially interesting:

"For the first few months of the campaign, the question about Obama was: Who is he? The question now is: Who does he think he is?

"We are getting to know. Redeemer of our uninvolved, uninformed lives. Lord of the seas. And more. As he said on victory night, his rise marks the moment when 'our planet began to heal.'"

Incredibly, it seems likely that Barack Obama's ego is more inflated than that of John Kerry.

Right on, Laura! I am thinking the same thing...he is such an "empty suit" there is nothing of any substance there at all!

You are my inspiration.

While we're on the subject....

When one's personal view of himself is so hyper-inflated, it makes one less able to deal with reality.
