All hail the Obama buzz

By Creature

Three articles. Three ledes. A legend is born.

[Thursday night Obama took a] "big step," [he] "swept to victory," [his win was] "historic," [his campaign] "caught fire," [the guy took a] "major stride," [yes, it was an] "historic bid," [sure, the man] "rolled to victory," [dude, he] "swept past" [her], [while] "pushing" [her away]."

Now that's some good press.

Bottom line for NH (and beyond): if Hillary goes negative, as Bill suggests, she will be finished. I'm not saying negative ads don't work. I'm not saying whisper campaigns don't work. I am saying, Hillary raining on Obama's coronation won't work. This is bigger than Hillary. Gasp.

  • Say Hey Creature

    We'll probably see how that plays out this evening, at the debate ... Will she aggressively go after him, or stay in her Incumbent/Inevitable role?

  • Shoot, I forgot all about the debate. It should be fun. But I tell ya, when she goes negative it just doesn't work.

  • I agree. Her negativity will look desperate. Still, I can't count her out. Obama was the story -- and, of course, it's all about how the media spin the results, not about what really happened -- but she has the money and the ground campaign win big in the big states. In this respect, she's our Giuliani -- but with a better shot at winning.
