I've struck a rich vein of commentary here in the finals days of the campaign...
Platinum - Getting beyond Obama the figure. A fact-based look at what an Obama administration means.
Gold - The libertarian vote. One man's struggle.
Silver - Everyone wants energy independence. Is that conventional wisdom sound? (ht/OOTM)
Copper - Everyone's a rogue. George Will slams the McCain-Palin ticket.
Bonus gems found lying in the slag heap:
Topaz - Ingenuity at sea. The prospect of "vortex" wave energy generation.
Ruby - Steel cage match. Picasso versus The Masters. (ht/CP3)
Emerald - Senator Elizabeth Dole's scary-voiced "Godless" ad.
