Anticipating the Lines of Attack


I don’t think that the Dem race is near over — but it’s wise to seriously consider the lines of attack that John McCain’s team will take against Hillary and/or Obama — both if they are partnered on the final ticket.
Joe Conason outlines some of the material floating around in the darker corners of the Republican dominated blogosphere about Obama and Kenya. Conason doesn’t parse through all of the material — but from my own reading of this stuff — he captures the most important nuggets.
I’ve been doing my own digging into Obama’s approach to Kenya and its political situation and find things to applaud and worry about. It’s a weird story in a way — and there are some duplicitous folks in Kenya attempting to take advantage of their perceived closeness to Obama — but that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been some missteps by the Senator there.
More on that later.

    Being pictured with Odinga at prior times is going to probably hurt his standing during the election.
    Odinga’s done alliances with the number three party before, to triangulate vs. the main ethnic rival and popular vote winner whose office he has stolen, of the last race.
    So to say he was not working on some back room agreement with Sharia types is an item that doesn’t seem to match up with his track record.
    Oh, that’s right, anything to do with Obama isn’t about history or consistency, it’s about hope.
