Obama to keynote the DNC. The Ba-rocket is at full speed

(You like that? I just made that term up. Ba-rocket. Better than Obamania.)

Barack Obama is the keynote speaker for the Boston convention. This will make him a national celebrity and leader of the party.

The news couldn't be better.

One anecdote. When Bill Clinton came to Chicago a few weeks ago to promote My Life, he had some reception with Obama. Barack, also the author of an autobiography, mentioned that he was a bit jealous of Clinton's amazingly high first-week numbers of sales of his book. And Clinton quickly said he'd trade it in a second for Barack's age and where he's going.

Barack is going to be a super-star. Even Bill Clinton, one of the smartest analysts I've ever seen, thinks so.
