Sorry, Jennifer, but a bunch of political journalists who would like nothing better–professionally, not politically–than to see the coronation stopped is hardly proof that the “stop the coronation” sentiment is building momentum. What proof outside of political blogs do we have for this supposed buzz? I spent virtually all of my formative years working in the trenches of primary campaigns in New Hampshire, then covering campaigns for the AP and many of the local newspapers there, and I can tell you if you’re going to tell a bunch of fibs in an ad, it’s going to have to be slicker than that to make a real impact with people in early primary states whose ad-watching sophistication is substantially more attuned than the population at large. Hillary is virtually frozen in mid-sentence. You absolutely know something is being held back from you watching that. Color me unimpressed. And when Edwards starts polling in Obama territory or can pull a crowd like I saw Obama pull in NYC, maybe we can start talking about comparative haplessness.
