    has damaged him among Democrats--that much is clear. The Obama who was coming out of February would have won NC going away and probably gotten a narrow win in IN. This in turn leads to the press writing up ridiculous stories or sensing blood on the water regarding Obama.

    That's not at all the same thing as saying Obama is unelectable in November. I think it's pretty clear that he is electable enough to be elected.

    But not as electable. The Obama coming out of February could have won a game changing number of states. The Obama of now is probably going to have to settle for closer to 50+1

    Still, while on some level it's good for Obama to have been "toughened up", count me as one who thinks that Clinton is much tougher an opponent than McCain. Sure, the Republicans will use similar attacks, that will be more outrageous in content. However, I'm not sure they can match Hillary for sheer persistence and intensity.

    Barack Obama will only become president if enough people pay attention, so pay attention, dammit!
