Below are excerpts from this week's Talk Talk, A Commentary on a Commentary on a Commentary on a Commentary ... Every Sunday CUIP's president Jacqueline Salit and strategist and philosopher Fred Newman watch the political talk shows and discuss them. Here are excerpts from their dialogue on Sunday, August 3, 2008 after watching "The Chris Matthews Show" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos".
Newman: Yes. But there's nothing in that characterization. It's empty. It's like reciting the alphabet. What's the alternative?
Salit: An alternative would be that the American people have already decided that they want change and Obama and the Democratic Party offer that, consequently, the question of Obama's "acceptability" is already resolved.
Newman: Nothing's resolved. The election's not until November. It gets determined when it gets determined.
