The fall of the front-runner

Things might get a little awkward in Denver.

This absolutely heightens my anticipation for the The Atlantic's upcoming take-down of the Clinton campaign. Politico's headine pretty much sums it up: "Clinton told to portray Obama as foreign."

Mark Penn = Karl Rove? Maybe.

If only you mean that Rove will take over a significant role in McCains' campaign and lose to the Obama-men.

Rove NEVER loses. Look out come November.

No, I mostly meant mucking up the political discourse with tangents that don't matter and appeal to the lowest-common denominator.

I mean, c'mon: "Every speech should contain the line you were born in the middle of America American to the middle class in the middle of the last century."

That's totally ridiculous. Sad thing is, it almost worked.

And you're right. Obama has got a loooooong way to go until November. Rove is like Norm Chow - a highly effective game-manager.
