FROM DEEP INSIDE THE BELTWAY BUBBLE:

Obama vs. Clinton 2.0 (E. J. Dionne Jr., May 6, 2008, Washington Post)

[C]linton's embrace of a gas tax holiday has endowed Barack Obama with a sense of purpose and a burst of energy at precisely the moment his battered campaign seemed lethargic and reactive. Standing up to a proposal that even Clinton supporters see as pandering has allowed Obama to revisit his most successful days as a fresh voice uninhibited by Washington's habits.

Uh-huh, defending higher taxes and gas prices is a real winner for him....

It'
s a democracy, good politics mitigates against good policy. That's why the franchise should be restricted.
