The Associated Press: Obama’s speech to stress change

Wow. Really?

(a tip of the conservative Tampa Bay Rays cap to James Taranto at WSJ).

And speaking of change (also via Taranto):

Kerry, though, manages to muddy up the moreofthesame message:

Who can we trust to keep America safe? When Barack Obama promised to honor the best traditions of both parties and talk to our enemies, John McCain scoffed. George Bush called it “the soft comfort of appeasement.” But today, Bush’s diplomats are doing exactly what Obama said: talking with Iran. . . .

When we called for a timetable to make Iraqis stand up for Iraq and bring our heroes home, John McCain called it “cut and run.” But today, even President Bush has seen the light. He and Prime Minister Maliki agree on–guess what?–a timetable.

In both these cases, Kerry is promising that Obama will continue Bush administration policies while McCain will deviate from them. Can we really afford four more years of the same?

And more, concerning tonight’s Greek architectural set:

Politico’s Ben Smith28 offers a theory:

George W. Bush accepted his own nomination in 2004 on a set with a similar neoclassical theme, with columns rising on either side of him, as the pictures above and below show.

Indeed, the Bush set and the Obama sets currently look strikingly similar, with the podium set well in front of the columns, and connected by a path.

Can we really afford four more years of the same?

UPDATE: All kidding aside, I would say that Obama being a presidential candidate is a great moment in American history, but the left wouldn’t believe me.
