Senator Barack Obama

This Is Why Democrats Lose

When we lose, we lose because of glad-handing and complimenting the opposition. Senator Feingold on McBush:

"He's a very good legislator from my point of view, because when he gets onto something, he doesn't just want to introduce a bill, he likes to move it. And he's fearless."

And Bob Kerrey:

"John McCain is a known quantity," says Bob Kerrey, who thinks Obama will ultimately prevail. "You don't look at John and say, 'Who the heck is he?' He's a veteran, he's a guy who got pretty banged up in Vietnam. He can deal with crisis. There's some uncertainty about Senator Obama."

As you might recall, Bob Kerrey also repeated and spread the false madrassa rumor during the primaries:

KERREY: I’ve watched the blogs try to say that you can’t trust him because he spent a little bit of time in a secular madrassa. I feel quite the opposite — I think it’s a tremendous strength. Whether he’s in the United States Senate or whether he’s in the White House, I think it’s a tremendous asset for him.

Stop it, stop it, stop it! This is amateurish and weak. Unless, of course, there's a movement to undermine Senator Obama's chances for some reason.
