Below are excerpts from this week's Talk Talk, No Drama Obama. 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, November 9, 2008 after watching "The McLaughlin Group", "The Chris Matthews Show" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."
Newman: If I'm going to try to take that question seriously, I'd have to say that the American people weren't "saying" anything.
Salit: They weren't saying anything. What were they doing?
Newman: They were voting for Barack Obama, very passionately, and in such a way that translated into an electoral college victory. That's what the American people do in any presidential election. That will have to be enough.
