Obama's campaign is trying to play into the whole rock star image with the elaborate stage sets, special effects, and choreographed shows of adoration by his supporters. All he need is a bass guitar, some high heel shoes, and a little makeup, and he'd have the whole shebang!

Can you expain to me how Obama is a rock star?
They are literally referring to him being a rock star only figuratively..
Does he play in a band? I really dont get this accusation from McCain supporters.
Obama's whole "Ragged Dick" image is a crock. Obama's father was no goat herder but a British Civil Servant, his Grandmother was the President of a bank, his mother probably never saw a Food Stamp in her life, and he and His wife both have high paying jobs. Michelle alone earns $375,000/year. Why the Republican haven't called him out on this completely false biographical information, I don't know.. He's a liar.
Obama did not come from a well to do family, he paid his way through college, he is known for having much fewer lobbyist connections than most politicians.
I call him a rock star because he attempts to use all the same cheezy props to promote his image.
Do you call him a rock star because he is popular? Is being popular among constituents a bad thing.
but for most people they will automatically vote for their party. I don't see any 'change' with voting habit by the people who apparently want it so badly. But then that's people for you. They are quick to want something, but if they have to work for that something, forget about it...

My point is.....
Voting for someone JUST because they are say...a woman, or black,....or purple for that matter...sets the dangerous precedent that it doesn't matter what a politician believes in as long as they look like you.
I am a white male. That does not give John McCain my vote automatically.

She's a woman. Need I say more?
Women are voters, my girl friends will vote for her, their daughters will vote for her, and their grandmothers will vote for her, just because she is a woman.
Thank god that criminal Hillary is out or they'ed probably vote for her.
"It's apparent to us that the governor or someone on her staff had direct access to his personnel file, as well as his workers' comp file, and those are protected," said John Cyr, executive director of the Alaska Public Safety Employees Association.
"The individual inquiries taken by themselves are one thing. Many of these inquiries were completely appropriate; however, the serial nature of the contacts understandably could be perceived as some kind of pressure, presumably at my direction," she said.
But in papers requesting the probe be transferred to the personnel board, Palin's lawyer called Wooten a "rogue trooper" who threatened the governor's family during a bitter divorce and custody battle. Thomas Van Flein, the governor's attorney, said it was appropriate to complain to the head of the department about a trooper the Palins believed posed a threat to their security.
