    In 2000 nobody had ever heard of Obama. In 1992 nobody had ever heard of GWB except maybe some baseball fans. In 1984 who ever heard of Bill Clinton. Whover heard of Sarah Palin six months ago.

    Interesting information age we live in. In the olden days fossils like Hubert Humphrey and LBJ and Eisenhower and Rockefeller and Reagan ( and Dole and McCain) had to be around for years and years before they ran. As a rising star Obama appeared to be in 2004, I assumed it would take at least 2012 for him to be well known enough to run.

    Its all changed with the internet and with all the cable news.

    Its likely none of us have ever heard of the person who is likely to be elected President of the United States in 2016.

    Actually it makes you wonder who he owes his fast paced ride to. And how he'll repay them.

    Well one thing's for certain, we know everything McCain has ever gotten in his failed life was from his daddy, just like W.
