Pointing Fingers!

According to yahoo news, The papers and the blogs are full of stories about fingerpointing, recriminations and strategic disarray in the Clinton camp entering tonight's debate, as they try out various lines of attack ranging from graciousness to blaming the press to challenging his readiness to serve, his fliers, and his supposed efforts to distract voters from the real issues. Won't revenge be sweet if Hillary somehow turns it around, which is still not impossible? But, it is somewhat unlikely. The smartest quote of the morning comes from Dem strategist Steve McMahon in the Times, who summarizes the present difficulty of drawing the forceful contrasts with Obama that are probably necessary to shift momentum:
“There’s a general rule in politics: A legitimate distinction which could be effective when drawn early in the campaign often backfires and could seem desperate when it happens in the final hours of a campaign.” This was posted by another blogger; By John Riley on February 26,......Who all Agrees to this? I know my stance! What's yours?
