Obama IS The Candidate Of The Establishment
By Big Tent Democrat
Greg Sargent calls this claim by the Clinton campaign strained:
This one is worth keeping an eye on, because we'll be hearing more of it in the days ahead. In the Clinton campaign conference call I mentioned below, Hillary pollster Mark Penn repeatedly said Obama was becoming an "establishment candidate" -- a rather strained effort to use Obama's high-profile endorsements to weaken his insurgent appeal.
When the Establishment Media, Establishment politicans and Establishment bloggers all are for you, that sort of makes you the candidate of the Establishment. Of course Clinton is no insurgent. That would be ridiculous. But at this point, to call Obama an insurgent candidate is equally ridiculous.
