In a short piece yesterday Andrew Sullivan criticizes the slime tactics McCain is using--quite effectively it seems--on Obama. But he also makes the following observation, which is difficult to deny.
Since Obama's hubris in Berlin, he has lost almost every cycle of this campaign, and lost all of them quite badly. I'm not sure his campaign gets how far they have sunk, and how ineffectual and passive Obama has seemed these past few weeks. The total capitulation to the Clintons at the convention is particularly lame.
Obama is not even the official nominee yet, and it already looks like he's cooked.
