The Obama Magic 8 Ball to attend all future debates?
Since BO's so bitter due to ABC's lack of supplying him with a pillow for his feet and neck rubs during the commercial breaks, will puppet master Axlerod send a surrogate to future (if any) debates?

http://www.ktlkfm.com/cc-common/hal/obama8ball /

Will the public notice a difference between virtual Obama and a magic eight ball Obama?

1. For someone who claims not to be bitter
you post a lot of cynical, bitter stuff.

I'm just sayin'. :shrug:

7. Uhhh - yeah. Seems a tad "bitter" to me.
But then they've always been bitter about Obama's ability to attract support positively.
And, hey, I'm just sayin', too! :shrug:

58. You're angry too; I understand. All those months of posting propaganda, all those put-downs...
Throwing away DU associates, putting yourself within reach of being
banned, and your candidate still can't reach the goal line no matter
what you do.

Sucks, doesn't it?

23. Obama followers cited this DU rule that allows it:
"Members are permitted to link to highly partisan conservative websites, provided that they are doing so in the proper context."

When they were posting obscene pics of Senator Clinton.

4. You might learn something from this....but probably not
Ongoing nomination fight hurting Clinton more than Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) In a dramatic reversal, an Associated Press-Yahoo! News poll found that a clear majority of Democratic voters now say Sen. Barack Obama has a better chance of defeating Republican Sen. John McCain in November than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

While Obama and Clinton are both sustaining dents and dings from their lengthy presidential fight, the former first lady is clearly suffering more. Democratic voters no longer see her as the party's strongest contender for the White House.

Voters of all types have gotten a better sense of Obama, who was an obscure Illinois legislator just four years ago. As more people moved from the "I don't know him" category in the AP-Yahoo! News poll, more rated Obama as inexperienced, unethical and dishonest. And 15 percent erroneously think he's a Muslim, thanks in part to disinformation widely spread on the Internet.

But Obama's positive ratings have climbed as well, while Clinton widely known since the early 1990s has been less able to change people's views of her. And when those views have shifted, it has hurt her more than helped.

The New York senator's ratings for being honest, likable, ethical and refreshing have fallen since January, and Obama scores higher than she does in all those categories.

13. Given the questions asked and the 'debate' competition he faces
I don't see that he needs to send anything more than a Magic 8 Ball; unless you can find a Magic One Ball? No need for overkill...

35. Why go to such debates?
They are a disservice to the American people because they are pure ambushes and not issue oriented. Anyone who didn't have a problem with the way that debate was conducted and therefore would blame Obama for thinking twice about another one is putting Hillary Clinton over the party and nation or a rightwinger who wants to see hate filled political garbage asked in a national setting while the republican party gets a pass on their criminality.

44. So now you aren't just linking to right wing bullshit
justifying it with this:

"Members are permitted to link to highly partisan conservative websites, provided that they are doing so in the proper context."

and whining that Obama supporters did it, but also claiming that this righwing bullshit is 'the truth about Obama'. Gee, that would make you a rightwing troll. What a shock.
