Obama Memo: On Electability
Added 1881 days ago in
Seeking to rebut the argument that recent primary losses in Ohio and Pennsylvania by Sen. Barack Obama endanger Democrats' chances of wining the White House in the fall, the
Illinois senator's campaign is circulating a memo to superdelegates chock full of polling data that suggests just the opposite is true.
Entitled "The Strongest Candidate to Face John McCain," the memo, which was obtained by the Fix, casts Obama as the clear favorite for the Democratic nomination and the
candidate best able to break Republicans' eight-year lock on the White House.
After reciting the now familiar litany of leads Obama holds (pledged delegates, popular vote, number of states won), the memo adds: "He's inspired Democrats, Independents, and
Republicans, building an unprecedented coalition of more than 1.4 million contributors."
When it comes to the general election campaign, these demonstrated advantages make him the better choice for Democrats looking for a candidate to reclaim the Oval Office. "His
ability to expand the Democratic base, and his ability to capture the crucial Independent vote, make him stronger general election candidate than Senator Clinton who would enter the
fall campaign with the highest unfavorable ratings of any nominee in half a century," reads the memo.

It seems to me, the Obama campaign is making her case and giving more credibility to her argument. Big mistake.
