Any sort of cash incentive to get manufacturers to build more efficient vehicles -- and to get people to buy more of them -- is an admirable thing. But let's not forget that if people just make smarter choices, this nation's energy usage will go down dramatically.
"Michigan has suffered this economy in its worst form. Voters blame the Democratic governor and the Democratic Party, and the Republican president and the Republican Party."
What now? Our primary goal is to unite the millions of disaffected Democrats and to hold the DNC and its leadership accountable this November and beyond, working to defeat key players and create fairer elections.
You may be shocked to learn that not all stories from the convention were about tactics, or personalities, or disunity, or overcoming disunity, or yet more endless parsing of personalities and stagecraft.
But should those media-hyped McCain supporters (or those not voting at all) actually materialize at the convention, Cannady is ready with a message. "If you're one of these people who says they're not going to vote for anyone for president because their candidate didn't get chosen, then you shouldn't be here."
There seems to be a feeling that something is missing -- possibly the initial excitement Obama generated in the primaries -- and the delegates want to have this excitement back in the campaign.
While conventional wisdom says that Obama needs to reach out to disaffected Hillary supporters, another school of thought says nothing he can do will win them over. Only the Clintons can.

On Saturday the largest Asian-American political action committee, the 80-20 Initiative, formally endorsed Sen. Obama for president. They decided on t...
Bringing Clinton supporters into the Obama fold will require a delicate courtship. But in Texas, early prospects for unity crashed along with her concession speech live big-screen feed!
Rather than a Vince Lombardi halftime pep talk about giving 110% in the second half, I'd like to review where we've been so far. This will be my final "picks" article for 2008.
The delegate countdown is revealing on both sides. Clinton press releases portray a two-person race. Obama's portray the race as a solitary time trial. In any case, he'll reach the number Tuesday.
If the DNC nominating system really bothered her, the experienced "ready to lead from Day One" candidate would have known what to do and how to do it. And when. She'd have "gotten the job done" long before now.
Gore took a bullet for the party in 2000. The GOP cheated in FL and everyone knew it. But his sacrifice has been squandered by Clinton. Thanks to her, the GOP no longer has the market on voting fraud.
