Re: Abominations, Cartoons, and Cowards

I share your great opinion of Glenn Loury. And I enjoy him most in his conversations with John McWhorter. You hit the nail on the head in describing how wonderful it is to hear him think aloud. I...

Re: McWhorter and Loury Strike Back

Love to hear Glenn and love it best to hear him with McWhorter. And I share Glenn's weariness with the sentimentality. The good news is that it is wearing off. Yes, it is nice to see a brown face in...

Re: Santa Ana Winds Edition

I think Wright is the one who sounds juvenile in this session -- especially the comment regarding who looks the part of the president and who would you rather look at. Unfortunately, I think a lot of...

Glenn Loury Fan Club badge -- I want one!

Again it's a pleasure to listen to these two. As ever, Glenn expresses thoughts and feelings I share -- more eloquently than I could.

Re: First Presidential Debate Edition

It was great to listen to them discuss the debate. I see Glenn still struggling to come to terms with Obama's candidacy, as I am myself. His example is a much greater draw to me than the...

Re: In Defense of Dumb Presidents

I strongly identify with Glenn as a Hillary supporter and his comments express how uneasy and ambivalent I am about Obama's candidacy. It would have been heaven at this point to be excited and...

Re: Obama Pessimism

They are my absolute favorites -- I love the way they listen to and respond to one another.

Re: Glenn on Bill Moyers' Journal

Thanks for the link to Moyers. It was interesting to see Loury in that context but less satisfying than his bloggingheads appearances which are freer and more intimate. The hip-hop discussion wasn't...

Re: Class of 2008 Commencement Edition

"Blackness as an argument."

John relegates this to the past and doesn't think it has impact now but I don't think we're past it, not when I hear people on TV say things like -- how can the...

Re: Class of 2008 Commencement Edition

I feel Glenn's pain of mourning, and share his stubborn belief in Hillary Clinton. As ever, these guys are great to listen to -- the best of the bloggingheads!

Re: Why Won't Hillary Quit?

Yes, she should stay in! The media should be kissing her feet -- they are going to miss her so badly. The second she bows out (if it plays out that way) interest in general deflates. If she did it...

Re: Barack vs. Jeremiah

As always, Loury impresses me. Maybe it's an age thing. In my opinion Obama has asked us to "turn the page" on boomer history, on a lot of what we feel in our gut to be true. To my ears what he...

On lobbyists

I agree that their talk turned pretty muddled on ideology but I don't think Reich obliterated him. I do think they ended up raking over some old familiar political territory in an unclear and...

Re: "when turned on a Democrat"

On the subject of turning on a fellow democrat -- what do you call it when Obama basically equated the Clintons and Bush? I couldn't believe my ears the first time I heard him do this. He may be more...

Re: Glenn and John honesty and chemistry

They are also my favorite pair. Reflecting their tone with each other, though I avidly support Hillary, I feel at my most generous toward Obama when I listen to their discussions.

Re: Glenn Loury: Right on Again!

Exactly! Talk about old politics -- Reich depressed me with his anxious reiteration of the losing liberal approach. And, like Loury, I find it disingenous that Obama has claimed the high road merely...
