Clouds On The Horizon

Leading up to the Democratic party conventions hard ball is being played and actual issues are going to be discussed.

No more vague invocations of a being an agent of change without definitive policy statements or action plans will work. For a point of reference see John Kerry's "Plan" from 2004.

One author compares Barak Obama to Milli Vanilli of 1990 Grammy scandal fame.

The every edifying Volokh Conspiracy notes Barak Obama's support of the practical elimination of the right to bear arms as stated in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

This issue can be a campaign breaker as seen by Al Gore's loss in 2000. Much speculation surrounded that had he strongly embraced the Second Amendment as an Individual Right and fought against regulation he would have won his home states electoral votes and the presidency.
