Olbermann’s Special Comment on Hillary

Olbermann’s “special comment” about the Clinton campaign this evening offers no real, long-term help for Obama. As I wrote last night, the more the discussion is about politics and about race, the worse it is for Obama and thus, the better for Hillary.

Obama needs to get back to his staples: talking clearly and eloquently on subjects that resonate with the not-yet-jaded, or even with those of us who want to be less jaded. One of the most remarkable things I’ve noted about Obama is his ability to stay above the fray. He’s got to get back into the inspiration business and get off defense. If he has to, he can mention the latest attack, deflect it with a wave of his (as he does so well), and move on to something that drives up his “positives”. People eat that up!
