Obama's Up, Hillary's Down, and John McCain Is The New JFK?

I hadn't looked at Tradesports in quite a while. Hillary continues to fall:

You can see Tradesports data over the past couple months here.

Elsewhere, Joe Liberman says John McCain is the closest thing to JFK in this election:
Well, I say that the Democratic Party changed. The Democratic Party today was not the party it was in 2000. It's not the Bill Clinton-Al Gore party, which was strong internationalists, strong on defense, pro-trade, pro-reform in our domestic government. It's been effectively taken over by a small group on the left of the party that is protectionist, isolationist and basically will --and very, very hyperpartisan. So it pains me. I'm a Democrat who came to the party in the era of President John F. Kennedy. It's a strange turn of the road when I find among the candidates running this year that the one, in my opinion, closest to the Kennedy legacy, the John F. Kennedy legacy, is John S. McCain.

That remark about McCain is funny.

Clearly it's taking subtle aim at Obama. However, it's so absurd no one will pay much attention.

If there's one candidate that arouses the inspiration and excitement of JFK it is clearly Obama. If there's one candidate that can communicate with the verbal precision of JFK it is Obama.

Whether you agree with Obama's policies or not, his messaging and tone are remarkable. Quite frankly, no one else comes close to his communication skills and ability to inspire people. He has already given some of the best political speeches of our generation and has almost singlehandedly restored the art of rhetoric to modern day politics.
