The Daily Howler, always a good read, captures the essence of why the Kerry campaign is struggling. Have we NO water carriers?
Chris Matthews lobs what should have been a softball question to former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers (Howler offers an excellent response). But apparently this former press secretary doesn't have the first clue about how to turn it to an advantage, even (unlike poor Dan Bartlett) when she has fact on her side! From her lame answer, its clear she has no clue about any real facts, which I find amazing. As a Dem, as a political operative, as a person who's presumably has been paying a minimal amount of attention during the past nine months, this is one of the saddest performances I've heard of in a long long time.
