Waving or Drowning?

I think –in their heart of hearts– even the most smitten of Obama’s supporters are beginning to worry that this guy is right.

The man who has run nothing more demanding than the Harvard Law Review is beginning to look out of his depth in the world’s top job. His credibility is seeping away, and it will require concrete achievements rather than more soaring oratory to recover it.

How did Kathleen Parker put it, you know, regarding Sarah Palin, her clumsiness in interviews, and the consequent necessity that she withdraw as a Vice-Presidential candidate?

Out. Of. Her. League.

A little sideways pronoun adjustment, a sizeable upward recalibration for the demands of the office, and there you have it.

Obama’s young, he’s cool, has confidence to burn and a way –we are too constantly reminded– with the words.  Here’s hoping he can grow up fast.
