Good Bye, Obama
"As Candidate, Obama Carves Antiwar Stance," page 1, headline in the NYTimes.
The article says that Obama could not find any other issue that would enable him to differentiate himself from Hillary Clinton.
That he did not vote to for the resolution to permit Bush to go to war in Iraq is meaningless. He was not in the U.S. Senate at the time. He was way below Karl Rove's radar.
Poor Obama. He seems to be a decent person. He is also attractive, smart and is a successful author.
Unfortunately for Obama, he lacks the prestige, self-confidence and authority that Hillary has been honing for many years. He just does not seem to be Presidential material, alongside of Hillary Clinton.
We are now witnessing the prelude to the eventual withdrawal of Obama from the Presidential contest.
