I had a second cousin, may she rest in peace, who lived out the last 50 years or so of her life in New Hampshire, next door to where I now live. I kind of think that it is a shame that Diane and my cousin never knew each other. They do seem to be soul mates in many ways. I always likened her to Katherine Hepburn, both for her red hair and her attitudes. I would love to hear what she would say about the Obamessiah. I think that, somehow, she would work in one of her favorite expressions. She would say that Obama looked like he had been sucking on a lemon. She seemed to save that description for really hypocritical elitists that were always telling others how to live their lives. She was not at all enthralled with the nanny state, and lived alone, taking care of herself in her own home until about the last 4 or 5 years, and passed on in her late 80s. I didn’t always agree with her, but I loved to get her started talking about the national politicians, and then just sit back and listen. Like me, she spent several decades in the Washington D.C. area, and was personally acquainted with many notable figures, both political and military, especially in the period of the 1930s and 1940s.p>Diane, you have about a decade on me, but I consider that folks like us have a God given duty to keep the younger folks on their toes, and to keep bursting the balloons of the fools that think that they should tell us how to live out the remainder of our lives. br> — Ken Shreve br> New England /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
