Obama is a strange one…and his campaign is all about him.
He has no record to speak of. No paper trail. No witnesses (except for those now, as Charles points out, resting uncomfortably under the bus).
As it was in the beginning, it still is now. It’s all about Obama yet we don’t know who he is.
Here’s Krauthammer’s opening volley in Real Clear Politics today…
Barack Obama is an immensely talented man whose talents have been largely devoted to crafting, and chronicling, his own life. Not things. Not ideas. Not institutions. But himself.
Nothing wrong or even terribly odd about that, except that he is laying claim to the job of crafting the coming history of the United States. A leap of such audacity is odd. The air of unease at the Democratic convention this week was not just a result of the Clinton psychodrama. The deeper anxiety was that the party was nominating a man of many gifts but precious few accomplishments — bearing even fewer witnesses.
