Honeymoon's over

Posted By on Mon, Mar 17, 2008 at 9:56 AM

Ron Fournier, whose Little Rock Capitol coverage proved a springboard to a career as one of the country's leading political reporters for the Associated Press, writes a column nowadays. When Fournier speaks, millions hear.

So, though I linked this earlier, I thought his latest on Barack Obama was worth its own spot on the blog. Words like "arrogance" and "sense of entitlement" appear in conjunction with the candidate. He's no kinder to Candidate Clinton, who he, of course, knows well. But he notes that Obama suffers in comparison because he's presented himself as a new kind of politician. Sounds like you may add Fournier to the list of those who've begun to suspect that Obama might not be so groundbreaking after all.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
