Another Clark Fumble

It is not surprising that the McCain camp is going after Barack Obama on the continuing spectacle of Wesley Clark and the slurs on John McCain’s service. Letting Clark go out on the morning shows with non-apologies gave the unmistakable sign that Obama isn’t serious about halting this line of attack. Aside from wrecking his own patriotism message and giving the disillusioned MSM some more material to ponder, Obama has in a sense revived memories of the Reverend Wright affair. There, too, he was slow to react, indecisive and unwilling to denounce someone ostensibly on his side (until his sincerity was questioned).

This is hardly a model of moral leadership or an example of great executive management skills. It is however a gift to the McCain camp, which could not, with unlimited funds, have done nearly as good a job undermining Obama’s claim to offer an era of New Politics.
