There's quite a bit of hype today over whether Obama will still be appealing when the bloom comes off the rose. Blame it on New York, where the Daily News ran a piece describing the infatuation of some of Obama's supporters. Paul Krugman reacts,
One thing I worry about a lot if Obama is the Dem nominee - and he’s surely the frontrunner now - is that there will be a backlash against Obamamania. Actually, it’s already starting - probably too late to have much effect on the nomination fight, but in plenty of time to affect the general election.Left-leaning Bloggers from California to Colorado are now wringing their hands.
If the magic ends, there's plenty of time for people to take a sober second look and... take it from somebody who never saw Obama as more than a politician... he's still not a bad choice. (The Obama-praising video, The Yes We Can Song, gave me some insight into why and how he inspires, yet it also reminded me of this. Sorry?)
