Thumbs Down


We just received a press release from the Obama campaign announcing that former Sens. Nunn (D) and Boren (D) have come out in support of Sen. Obama. This continues to be one of the most striking features of this campaign — the tendency of politicians who do or did make their careers on the votes of people from small towns and rural areas to come out for Obama.

It’s been going on for three months.

I’ve always been highly skeptical of Hillary Clinton’s argument that she’s a stronger candidate in rural areas and red states. But the pols who know these areas best seem to be even more confident she’s wrong than I am.
