A great piece by Frank Rich called Who's Scared of Barack Obama? LOVE it. To be contrasted with the piece by Karl Rove (a man to whose writings I have a strict policy of never linking) setting Obama up for failure, ie, "if you don't beat Hillary in Iowa it's all over for you." Says who, Rove? You? I can't imagine why you'd like to see Barack Obama out of the race and Hillary Clinton sail to the nomination...which brings us right back to Rich's point: the GOP running against Obama is in a much tougher race than running against HRC, so it's in their best interests to ensure she gets the nomination. I pray that we won't allow ourselves to get played by Rovian tactics like this ever again. If Hillary gets the nom, the 'Pubs will get the White House.
