THE ONLY THING MISSING FROM HIS BOWLING PHOTO OP...:

Is Barack Obama in Danger of Being Outmanned? (Steven Stark, 5/01/08, Real Clear Politics)

Though the press and Barack Obama supporters often maintain the opposite, by the rough-and-tumble standards of American politics, Hillary Clinton really hasn't run that tough a campaign against the Illinois senator. She's broadcast very few negative ads. Her critiques, until recently, have focused primarily on Obama's electability. Her husband's attacks on her opponent have mostly backfired, generating far more negative reaction than positive. In fact, most of Obama's problems on the campaign trail have come from stories emanating from the press - the Jeremiah Wright controversy and his own remarks before supporters in San Francisco being two examples. And, of course, Obama keeps losing key primaries, which isn't doing him any favors.

But there is one Clinton line of attack that does have the potential to seriously undermine the Obama effort. She has begun to try to emasculate Obama - portraying him, in so many words, as a wimp.


...was Mike Dukakis's tank helmet.

I hope McCain has a Hillary as Nurse Ratched ad ready to go for the general...

Jeez, emasculating a man is the perfect way for Hillary to endear herself to the male electorate...

No, Gloria Swanson would be more effective. Or perhaps Mrs. Robinson (trying to seduce the nation).

His wife already emasculated him - all she has to do is show it.
