He'd be having a ball watching folks set beartraps and step on 'em.....Most of the stuff playing out is classic Tim on a larger stage, or perhaps in his honor, "On the Grandest Stage"

It has been mentioned twice that the report is coming up but they haven't talked about it yet.

I always picture my beloved dad having a front row seat for all the Cub games. Now I also picture Tim having a front row seat for this election season.

Love it!... was he getting his "NOT miss congeniality" award?

Go Cubs! Yep, I'd love to see Tim calling it like he see's it....I think something really stirring out there since Tim...the Press appears to be finding the seat the Founders intended them to have...time will tell.

Well that was really nice of them to send over the nice picture. It didn't look negative at all...smiling and relaxing....

He is my choice for President, but if he's your "Messiah" thats up to you! I think he's a wonderful man....but no more.

Now McCain is very much like the cranky old man who used to get red in the face and scream at kids whose ball went in his yard...but he's not the devil.

Whoa...there's no need to incite or wish for violence. The Constitution allows for peaceful protest, why not take that route?

McCain is laying off Obama with his allegations and telling his followers that Obama isn't a bad guy because he knows what's coming his way with associations of his own.
