    The battle with Clinton may have taken its toll. Obama maybe starting to act like any other politician down from his rock star status.

    How Obama Fell to Earth
    Furiously courting Democratic primary voters and apparently exhausted, Barack Obama has emerged as a more conventional politician and a more orthodox liberal.

    Obama promised his presidency would be a break from the past, but over the last few months he has "emerged as a more conventional politican and a more orthodox liberal."
    Back in Iowa, Barack Obama promised to be something new -- an unconventional leader who would confront unpleasant truths, embrace novel policies and unify the country. If he had knocked Hillary Clinton out in New Hampshire and entered general-election mode early, this enormously thoughtful man would have become that.

    But he did not knock her out, and the aura around Obama has changed. Furiously courting Democratic primary voters and apparently exhausted, Obama has emerged as a more conventional politician and a more orthodox liberal.

    He sprinkled his debate performance Wednesday night with the sorts of fibs, evasions and hypocrisies that are the stuff of conventional politics. He claimed falsely that his handwriting wasn’t on a questionnaire about gun control. He claimed that he had never attacked Clinton for her exaggerations about the Tuzla airport, though his campaign was all over it. Obama piously condemned the practice of lifting other candidates’ words out of context, but he has been doing exactly the same thing to John McCain, especially over his 100 years in Iraq comment..........

    At least if Hillary wants to attack him she comes out and says it, doesn't hide behind conference calls and such.

    The democrats are on the path to elect another republican just as they did with Gore/Kerry, it's comical to watch their far left wing agenda lead them into the exact same situation that put GW Bush into the White House (Twice).

    In many Americans eyes these two "jerks" Obama/Hillary are even WORSE than Gore/ Kerry, the quiet people that your not hearing about can't wait to vote, November can't come fast enough.

    They're all the same. We've got three rejects vying for the most important job on the planet. Real sad my friends.
