I think conservative reaction to the Kos story is overboard, but I also think the DNC candidate could be unelectable.
Obama is very damaged. In two days, he was caught in a lie over contrabutions from Tony Rezko and another lie about his knowledge of his spiritual advisor's racism and anti-Americanism. Rank and file Democrats will either stay home or vote Republican if Obama's the nominee.
If the DNC gives the nomination to Hillary, the African-American wing will defect, big time. Without 80 percent of that bloc, a Democrat cannot win.
The Democrats have played a really weak game of chess this year. Proportional delegate allocation and superdelegates make it almost impossible for good electoral politics to prevail.Comment Posted By Bill Hennessy On 15.03.2008 @ 22:52
