Obama vs. Clinton

OBAMA vs. CLINTON….Reader MDS thinks I’m overreacting:

Please, I beg you, reconsider. You were the only blogger making any sense on the Obama/Clinton front, and now you’ve jumped ship, too? Trust me, I live in Chicago, I’ve met Obama, I voted for him for Senate, I think he’s great … but he’s just not up to running for president. Yes, the Clinton campaign said some stupid stuff. But no matter how much that turns you against Hillary, the way the Obama campaign has cried about it should turn you even more against Obama. Having watched him up close, I can tell you, Obama is an inspirational guy who doesn’t have a clue how to campaign. If it’s Obama vs. McCain, we’re in for six months of Swift Boating followed by four more years of a Republican in the White House.
