Too bad more people don’t feel ‘nothing’ when they hear Obama speak, or we wouldn’t now be in this mess, and Obama wouldn’t be in it, either. People wouldn’t have been so enslaved to him, and he wouldn’t have been able to ‘inspire’ people with mere verbiage.
If Obama uses the same methods against John McCain that he used against Hillary Clinton, then he is going to sound more and more like a George W. Bush, but one that says ‘uh’ more. After that he would be likely to govern like a somewhat more benign Republican. Thus it is important to make Democrats terrified to split the Democratic caucus. (See http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2008/06/getting-things-done-by-digby-in.html to understand what I mean about caucus-splitting.)
