For more analysis of the ongoing race for the Democratic nomination and each candidate’s electability, I refer you to Ken Silverstein’s latest entry on the Harper’s Magazine website where he starts off with:
As Jon Stewart said on The Daily Show last night, McCain probably spent Tuesday night “giggling like a gorilla watching a cat play with string, while resting his aching balls in a chilled bowl of Howard Dean’s tears.”
…and then raises a valid concern about Obama’s base:
Obama’s core constituencies seem to be the youth vote, African-Americans, and the highly educated, which works fine in the Democratic primaries but may not be nearly as powerful a coalition in a general election. As a reader recently wrote to me, “[Hillary Clinton’s] constituencies are roughly even in size to Obama’s, but seemingly ignored by the media as irrelevant. That’s a recipe for disillusionment if they are constantly denigrated or dismissed.”
And no, I haven’t clicked on Silverstein’s link to a column by Robert Novak. Anyone else and I wouldn’t hesitate, but Robert Novak? As Jon Stewart has said many times, Robert Novak is a douche bag. I get nauseous just thinking about him let alone actually reading his column.
