Hillary Clinton was hoarse and boring in Texas, where she gave a long speech ignoring her losses. Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, Barack Obama reiterates the scope and breadth of his victories. He is tentatively trying to engage McCain by coming up with a new term “Bush-McCain Republicans” (it doesn’t make any sense when you think about the policy and personal differences between the two but that is beside the point in a victory speech) while mixing standard Democratic fare (“Mainstreet vs. Wall Street”) with some Obama “bringing us together” atmospherics. He even gets a bit tough, accusing McCain of dumping his moral objections to the Bush tax cuts “for the wealthy” to win the GOP nomination. The challenge to McCain will be considerable: get past the very attractive Obama packaging and get voters to focus on what Obama is actually proposing (e.g. withdrawal from Iraq, end of the Bush tax cuts).
