On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough asked “why is it that Obama seems so small now?” I think I know. Sen. Obama’s greatest strength was never that he was the most qualified candidate. He doesn’t have much of a resume. It was not his ideology. He’s a left wing guy in a right of center country.
His greatest strength was that he was a Star.
Only he’s not the star of the show anymore. Sarah Palin has stolen his spotlight. And what is a star without his stardom? He’s just another guy you pass on the street.
Without the roar of the crowd, Cary Grant is just Archibald Leach.
