Andrew Sullivan on Barack Obama
Andrew Sullivan’s fascination with Barack Obama is something that I find, well, fascinating. Andrew, who voted for Bush in 2000, supported the Iraq war until recently and whose new book is about reclaiming conservatism from the likes of Bush and Cheney so far seems to be supporting Barack for president. I don’t totally understand it.
Part of that, of course, is the seeming pathological hatred that he expresses for Hillary Clinton, but part of it is also because he believes that Barack is the only candidate running for the presidency that can move us forward from the bitter partisanship pushed by George Bush and the right-wing GOP base.
Andrew says and I agree:
The next month is crucial for Obama. Nothing is inevitable, whatever the MSM is telling you.
The Iowa Caucuses are 66 days away and there is still time for his campaign to right the mistakes of the previous week and move forward in a bold and focused way.
