Dick Morris is right: If Barack Obama is to vanquish Hillary Clinton, he must go on the offensive. If he continues to take the high road, on the assumption that his soaring rhetoric will suffice to win him the Democrat nomination, he’ll lose. The Clintons and their minions will destroy him. The problem for Obama is that his supporters will not tolerate negativity from him. The thing they love about him is his positivity. (Is that a word? If not, it should be, since “negativity” is a word.) They view him as something other than a politician—as a secular messiah. How many times have you heard it said in recent weeks that the Democrats have two wonderful candidates, either of whom would make an impressive president? Progressives hate fighting. They want to make love, not war. What Obama doesn’t appear to grasp is that pacifists never prevail in contests with the bellicose. The meek might inherit the earth, but they seldom win presidential elections.
