What's ailing the Obama campaign

I think Matt Stoller hits the nail on the head, but I stand by my earlier post because Obama's early opposition to the Iraq War is, at the end of the day, his trump card. To the extent he can tie that opposition to a narrative about broken Washington and a Democratic elite that's out of touch (much the same as Dean did) and at the same time couple that with a message of hope and optimism (something Dean rarely did) he could finally break out of the pack. But right now, his message is too muted to cut through although his campaign money may start to change that.
