Default Re: Special Endgame Edition

I'm sceptical of the idea that, based on their previous earnings, the Clintons will have no trouble making up the millions they spent on the campaign. Did anyone really think that paying Bill Clinton tens of thousands of dollars for a motivational speech was worth it? Call my cynical, but I'd see that as influence-buying to get the favor of a future president. If Hillary Clinton loses the nomination, and Obama wins in November, I think Bill's speaking fees go way, way down.

Minor point- Giuliani's speaking fees will also go down (here's hoping).

Piscivorous- Obama is not going to be considered a Muslim apostate. For one thing, he never made the shahadah, the Muslim profession of faith. ("I testify that there is no God but God, and Mohammed is his prophet.") Second, Obama's father was raised Muslim but was either atheist or agnostic before Obama was born. Also, if a Muslim father abandons his child(ren), as Obama's father did, Muslim law says that the mother, as sole responsible parent, has the right to raise the children in her faith.
