Comments on: A report from Ward 6, Saco, Maine http://www.historiann.com/2008/02/10/a-report-from-ward-6-saco-maine/ History and sexual politics, 1492 to the present Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:41:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: Historiann http://www.historiann.com/2008/02/10/a-report-from-ward-6-saco-maine/comment-page-1/#comment-486 Wed, 13 Feb 2008 15:59:47 +0000 http://www.historiann.com/2008/02/10/a-report-from-ward-6-saco-maine/#comment-486 Yes–I agree. The one thing his campaign hasn’t managed to do is manage expectations, either for the campaign or for what an Obama presidency would mean, and I think HRC is probably smart in not over-promising what she can do in the first year of her presidency. I know people see her as hesitating on a commitment to get out of Iraq, and Obama supporters see that as further proof of her treachery with the 2002 vote to authorize force, but the reality is that because of George Bush’s war jones, there are real constraints about how speedily the next president can extract us from Iraq. Sadly, no one has a magic wand that will make it all just go away.

It looks a little like Guliani’s strategy with Fla. If Obama wins Wisconsin he will pick up even more momentum. She needs to sack him in Wisconsin. The biggest problem is that he is the ultimate politician. He makes people feel good, in part by dealing in terms that are difficult to counter. I mean, who really wants to be against hope? Who doesn’t want a better future? But take something like Iraq, that is a very complicated situation, and I think she would handle it more effectively.

I didn’t think your comment sounded weird. The O-man does seem to have Senatorella on the ropes…let’s see what those crazy Buckeyes do next month. Any bets, Rad?

I was trying to comment on Obama’s feel-good message, which to me lacks a little substance. But it sounds kind of weird. Thanks.
