As many Kossacks know, the very erudite (and progressive) Vanity Fair writer/blogger has been a marginal Clinton supporter, and has written somewhat about his concerns with how some Obama supporters behave.
Without getting into that argument, and without his making any big deal about his evolution, he uses his great writing skills to synthesize perfectly what has happened between Obama and Bush/McCain in the last two days.
His latest blog entry is mainly about Peggy Noonan's column today (in which she basically denounces the current GOP), and then pivots to how effective Obama sounded.
It's nice for all of us Dems to be coming together, and even better than Obama is earning enthusiasm among those who had their doubts.
That was one of the chords Obama struck today in his response to Bush's "Nazi appeaser" accusation before the Israeli Knesset--he firmly, deftly mummy-wrapped Bush and McCain together and dropped them off at the pier. It's rather impressive to see a first-term senator chastise the President of the United States and the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party as if he were the headmaster and they the ones guilty of infractions unworthy of upperclassmen. That's one of the benefits of having an oratorical voice that sounds tall--it automatically adds height to every utterance, allowing them to drop like acorns and make a nice thunk when they bounce off of the nearest thick skull.
