If David Axelrod, Obama’s campaign chief, has been dreaming about how he can tie McCain to the Bush Legacy, he couldn’t have imagined a more perfect set-up that Bush’s ridiculous comments in Israel yesterday. Here is Barack this morning tieing the two Republicans in a perfect knot. Let’s hope Bush keeps inserting himself into the campaign.
It also served the purpose of emphasizing that the general election campaign between Obama and McCain has begun. I haven’t heard the name “Hillary Clinton” mentioned once in the last 24 hours.
