I've asked myself this question quite often since January 8th. Why did the AP want to sit on my couch and watch the State of the Union with me? Why would I care to comment on the launch of Endeavor? Who would be interested in what I had to say? And if someone were to be interested in my opinions I want to know why. My brush with bullets didn't make me any more learned or worthy. I'm just a name with which to entice viewers/readers.

The talking heads seem to need to comment about Hilary's hand over her mouth. I'm not sure why, but they do. It doesn't seem so odd to me. There are young men in danger and she's a mom. She knows they don't want her yelling at them to be careful, but she can barely stop herself so she covers her mouth.
Been there. Done that. Love this.
Gotta wonder how long it will be until the Geronimo EKIA bumper stickers appear.
My favorite part of the whole she-bang is that the President asked for air-time on all 3 networks and then kept them waiting for nearly an hour. The talking heads began to blather, there were several false starts, and time was passing. No one was really harmed..... except Donald Trump, whose Celebrity Apprentice was pre-empted by the gutsiest move by a President in recent memory.
Barack Obama was capturing terrorists while our favorite carnival barker was sidelined, a graphic being rescheduled on the banner rolling underneath the grown-ups talking about grown-up things.
It was a lovely sight to see.
