I repeat: Never count the Clintons out!

Delegate Scorecard...

Hillary Rodham Clinton scored three victories in a night of revival that denied Barack Obama a ripe opportunity to drive her from the Democratic presidential race. Clarity came only to the Republican side, where John McCain made the nomination his own. Clinton won the big races in Ohio and Texas, as well as Rhode Island, to break her costly losing streak. - Associated Press

On CBS News this morning, Clinton acknowledged that events could be pointing to a Clinton-Obama ticket. Many months ago, I posted that would be something to look for... hmmmm...

"Some people were ready to count us out. But you and I proved them wrong, just as we have every time they tried to declare this race over prematurely. And we're going to keep showing them exactly what we can do." - Hillary Clinton campaign e-mail

Have you noticed that whenever reporters question Barack Obama supporters about the "change" he promises, no one ever gives a real answer? What kind of change? "He'll change everything." What change are you looking for? "More money from the government for the people." (Obama never said nor promised anything like that). What change will Obama bring? "Oh, he's gonna change things." - You get the idea. If I were on Barack's campaign team, I would immediately define "change" and pass out tri-folds to all supporters listing in the simplest terms possible, exactly what the candidate stands for and is promising, so that those supporters are able to telegraph Obama's beliefs to the press...

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
