The Thing with One Eyebrow

Charles Krauthammer at the Washington Post and Richard Fernandez at the Belmont Club are duking it out over the significance of Omaba's falling approval numbers. Both make good points so read the essays. However, I think they are both missing the central threat.

Never forget that Hillary Clinton is still out there marking time in a high level post that allows contact with the players but lets her stay out of the political cauldron. The discontent with Obama is largely because he has not been leftwing enough and that will not get a conservative (which these days is synonymous with rightwing socialist, anyways) much less a libertarian elected. The Party apparatchiks have not forgotten about Hillary and, unless Obama pulls his head a rabbit from his arse hat, she may well be the Democratic candidate in 2012 and ride to victory on the votes of the discontented Obama supporters combined with the party faithful.
