Sensible and Cynical Progressives

Sensible progressives will vote for Obama. Cynical progressives may vote for McCain. The later remind me of the famous ancient Greek Cynic Diogenes, who, according to The Cynic’s Sanctuary, “reportedly took up residence in a tub to demonstrate his freedom from material wants. This cranky street-philosopher would introduce himself by saying, ‘I am Diogenes the dog. I nuzzle the kind, bark at the greedy and bite scoundrels.’ He’d use a lantern by daylight, explaining that he was searching for an honest man. Even Alexander the Great didn’t escape unscathed.

Clinton will release delegates to Obama

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, hoping to unite the Democratic Party and cement her future in it, will gather her hard-won primary delegates Wednesday at a reception where she is expected to formally release them to Barack Obama.

The New York senator has invited her pledged delegates to a reception at the Colorado Convention Center, not far from the main Democratic National Convention arena.
