The Puppy Question

I myself have been pondering a puppy purchase, so admittedly I was endeared by Obama's mention of a dog for his girls in his acceptance speech. However, it also stood out for its political suaveness. I mean, he successfully melted my heart just a tad despite my steel resolution to oppose what he stands for. For now, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he's not using the puppies for cold hard political gain, but I'll keep my eye on it!

One more silly note about the puppies - Bill Kristol writes:
Obama was, naturally, asked about the promised-but-not-yet-purchased puppy at his press conference Friday. (If one were being churlish, one might say that it was typical of a liberal to promise the dog before delivering it. A results-oriented conservative would simply have shown up with the puppy without the advance hype.)
