If Obama Caesar...

Few political speeches or snippets are as memorable as the deceptively provocative words of Antony at Julius Caesar's funeral: "I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him." But as the Democratic National Convention plows forward, one has to wonder if tonight's address by former President Bill Clinton will echo the party line or Shakespeare's. While the animosity between the Obama and Clinton camps has been entertaining, the party loyal are expecting everyone to behave. Behaving, however, is not one of Wild Bill's long suits. Yesterday's comments on a 'hypothetical' election contest between two candidates eerily similar to Obama and McCain should have the Dems nervous - to say the least.

My prophetic quote for Clinton tonight is as follows:
Friends, lovers and countrymen, I have come to praise Obama, not to bury him...But the more that I think about it...

"...but now that I think about it..." Bellicose Bill wouldn't dare..or would he? You have to admit, he makes for good satire.
