17. Obama could have taken another direction on that show.
One I deeply wish he would have taken.
He said Democrats need to convince the public.
He had the perfect opportunity, by being on that show, to do just that.
He has shown that he is a good speaker. He could have used his time on "This Week" to make the case against Alito, to make it powerfully and eloquently and persuasively and to wake up some drowsy Sunday tv watchers.
Yet, given that opportunity, an increasingly rare one given the tendency of so many shows to skew their speakers to the right (This week's "Meet the Press" showing that dramatically), he chose to squander it.
I am disappointed he made that choice.
