Today's column by Matt Bai begs the same question I asked in my previous post about McCain and race. But with a different spin: are the Democrats misconstruing the electoral map? I wonder if the prolonged Democratic primary is going to ruin the candidates - not because of insults and attack ads, but because Clinton and Obama are trying to out-Democrat each other and consequently lose more centrist votes by the minute.
Yet, as Ann said the other day, I also wish that elections didn't turn on the "Reagan Democrat" vote. The US isn't going back to being an industrial powerhouse like it was in 1950 (John Edwards), so maybe we need to let go . . .
