A-bama-ham in '08?

A great story I once heard:

Once upon a time, there was a prominent Senator from New York who was seemingly a shoo-in to receive the party's nomination for President. But out of nowhere -- and against overwhelming odds -- a relatively unknown politician from Illinois emerged. This politician wasn't particularly rich or influencial. He didn't have the experience necessary to convince people that he could get the job done once in office. His speeches were often accused of being lofty, devoid of substance, and poorly indicative of how he would do as Commander-in-Chief.

Nonetheless, Abraham Lincoln still overcame William Seward, won his party's nomination, and ultimately took the White House.

Have you made the connection yet? If not, here's a little help for you.

@ Joanne: Can't take the credit for this one. But thanks.

@ Sylv: You and I are convinced, but I don't think the rest of the DNC are. The morons that they are...
