That is interesting--I guess I just sort of assumed it was there, in the more recent debates!

This is why we don't assume.

Interestingly, though, using Wordle display functionality to make everything horizontal could make that word--"President"--a lot more obvious: something like this (I used a higher number of maximum words in that one, too, so that it'd match up better with the Obama-McCain one you posted).

Ah, yes. I've been playing with the word-count function too. I just kind of liked how the one I posted looked. Plus, I really like the "Half-And Half" or "mostly" look more then the "everything" horizontal/vertical look, so I don't click on it very often... I shall play with it more today, I think.

I was talking more about the word "President" --note how it's hardly even mentioned in the current debates. I thought that was odd.

Part of that is a false positive though. Note that "Mr." was also very large in 84. Regan was the incumbent, so protocol dictates that he would have been referred to as "Mr. President." In our current election, neither of the candidates are previous presidents, so neither of them are addressed as Mr. President.

I made one out of my friend and I's wall to wall. Actually, sections of it.

A+ for original idea. D for delivery. That layout could be much more interesting and less messy looking.

Yeah, looking at it three hours later, it is definitely a terrible layout

Better, perhaps?

Muuuuuch better. I like that one a lot more. The color scheme looks really good on that too.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

It has never happened before.

I doubt it will ever happen again, actually. I normally find it very tedious when people make jokes out of my name. I think I am suffering from sleep deprivation and loneliness. Or just a bit hyper?

There's mine (influenced by the fact that I was watching Friends at the time...). I did do one I preferred out of words from my diary but I accidentally deleted it and couldn't be bothered to do it again.

It does look like a large fish. But even more it looks like a zeppelin.
