    Obama: Radical in Liberal Clothing
    By Peter Kirsanow

    The reigning media narrative is that because this is a heavily Democratic year, Senator McCain is a clear underdog to Senator Obama. The narrative has almost nothing to do with the appeal of the candidates' respective policies -- and it's clear the Obama campaign is concerned voters will begin to notice.

    Consequently, in order to position himself for the general election, Obama has been running furiously toward the center-- deemphasizing his liberalism with the adroit use of linguistic jiu jitsu. As NBC recently reported, Obama declared:

    SNIP

    All presidential candidates take at least one position that's unpopular with the electorate; it's impossible not to in a heterogeneous society. And a candidate who's nothing but a weathervane of public opinion isn't likely to become an inspiring leader. But few, if any, serious presidential contenders have ever taken so many positions supported by so few.

    In the circles in which Obama has been traveling much of his career, his positions on the issues are hardly remarkable. But the general election campaign will reveal that even in a strongly Democratic year, those circles remain a tiny sub-set of the American electorate.

    I don't know why any of us on either side of the Obama/McCain argument post any of this stuff. Nobody's mind is being changed. We are just electronically flapping our gums. :laugh:

    That is what I figure, but I just can't figure out which one that is. Wish one would ask the other to be vp and then I wouldn't have to vote :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    If you actually read some of the material on the candidates, it might help you reach a decision.

    But, maybe not. For you, it might be better to approach this election in blind ignorance. :thumbs:

    It's working for some.
