i haven't been liveblogging, but...

srsly, CNN? At like 7:50am ET, Kiran said, "Breaking News: John McCain will announce his pick for VP within the next few hours." Um, we've all known for days that he was expected to name his pick today; that is not actually news. And Dana Bash is clearly not "working [their] sources" since you have her on the air every half hour to reiterate the same "news" about the plane that landed in Dayton at 10:07pm last night. (Yes, I know, clearly she has people doing that groundwork -- I'm more just sort of annoyed at how much repetition there is when you watch for more than a few minutes at a time.)

Sarah Palin? I don't even know what to think about that possibility. I can say, however, that I am so tired of the narrative that disaffected Hillary Clinton voters will all defect to McCain -- and that the Clintons sekritly hate Obama and don't want him to win the Presidency. CNN had Stephanie Miller and Mark Simone on via satellite, and I'll grant Simone the distrust of sincerity of any Clinton saying "It's not about me," and I would not be at all surprised if Hillary Clinton runs for President again, but to say that Clinton wants Obama to lose so she can run in 2012? That attributes to her crueler ends-justify-means (not quite the right term, but the best I can come up with) mentality than even I tend to subscribe to.
