The Albatross

I think a while back Commentary said that he thinks the GOP would rather face Obama and not Hillary. Well, one of Congress’ top GOP leaders, Rep. Tom Cole from Oklahoma, said yesterday said that Obama was “the weaker candidate.” According to Cole, the GOP would rather run against Obama. An AP poll released yesterday has Hillary ahead of McCain by 9 points and Obama and McCain running even. You have to think that this Rev. Jeremiah Wright factor isn’t doing Obama any good.

Hillary has just about gone through and faced everything in politics. Since 1992 she has been attacked by the GOP and she is still standing today. Obama is dealing with the preacher issue and quite frankly we still don’t know how it is going to play out. Think about it. Rev. Wright has knocked Obama off message. Commentary doesn’t hear anybody saying that this will all pass and we should not worry about it.

I watched Rev. Wright yesterday at his National Press Club performance and it is real obvious that he doesn’t give a hoot about Obama’s candidacy. It is definitely an uncontrollable factor that should have Dems concerned today.

Commentary is not going to say anything about The Rocket today other than he’s having a bad year. At least he is not a ‘Stro right now.
