Weâ€™ve all seen it. Some, up close and personal but most on the television in some documentary or on a nightly news show. Iâ€™m talking about the ravages of starvation.

Vandals, aka, ignorant, rascists have come out from the slimy rock they live under to paint 60 cars with derogatory anti-Obama messages. Police on Sunday were investigating the spray-painting of dozens of city vehicles in Orlando Florida, some with disparaging messages about the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
David Plouffe is no household name, which is fine with him. He is, in fact, Barack Obamaâ€™s campaign manager. You won’t see him on the news talk shows. He is, by his own design, a back-room manager. It is no secret that, to date, Obama campaign strategy and its execution has been near flawless. Most of the credit belongs to Barack himself and his choice of David Plouffe as campaign manager.
