I hope Obama is a suspicious of this as I am...
..."Obama also said that the lack of a concession call from Keyes after the election didn't reflect on other Republicans. Obama said he received congratulatory calls from President Bush, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz."

He has been touted as the 'future of the Democratic Party' and since we all know the Republicans don't intend for the "Democrat" Party to have a future, he has a bullseye on his back. I hope he knows that bipartisanship is a language today's Republican Party does not speak. If they are reaching out to him, I believe it's to draw him into a trap and somehow undermine his credibility and effectiveness before he can be a real threat to them down the road.

1. Keyes is an ass hole
No other way to put it. He doesn't he even the least bit of class or dignity. He is nothing more than a clown.

2. I think Obama is playing it smart
he's trying hard not to make the same mistakes Carol Mosely-Braun made. I have no doubt he's sleeping with one-eye open, you can't trust a Republican as far as you can throw them.

3. What did they do to Braun
I know she got in some kind of trouble, but the media blamed it on her...

4. I have to hope Obama knows what he's doing.
I'm down to him and Dean as far as hope goes.

5. I've felt all along that they're setting Obama up for a fall.
