Attack of the Left-Handers!

I had a chance to watch Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton debate last night at the University of Texas at Austin. (CNN streamed the debate live on the internet, a welcome service to those of us who are TV-challenged. Thanks, CNN!)

I knew there was a reason I empathize with Obama. Not only is he left-handed, but he writes back-handed! (Like yours truly.)

You can be sure that, before the year is ended, Conservative Republicans and astute political observers like Limbaugh, Coulter, O'Reilly and Hannity will attack this revealing indicator of radical liberalism.

(Regarding the debate, I was impressed with Clinton's ease and confidence, but agree with Obama that we need a significant shake-up in Washington, that he's more likely to deliver. Actually, I'm hoping they quickly figure out the winner, then determine to run as the Presidential-Vice Presidential ticket. It was hardly a stimulating debate, and it was quite humorous when "CNN.com" anchor Reggie Aqui repeatedly asked us to pay close attention to how the "debate dial" audience reaction meters responded to the candidates' statements. It was like watching ripples on still water.)
