the kerfuffle over wesley clark's "attack" on mccain's war record is a perfect example of how mindlessly stupid the media's coverage of this race is. but the attack wasn't just driven by the press. it was there because the mccain campaign kept pushing it. i think digby's right that this vastly reduces the chances that clark will be obama's VP.
and now the mccain campaign is trying the same trick on jim webb. are they just going down obama's short list, trying to tar each one with this flimsy "scandal"? would anyone be surprised if they try to pin it on kathleen sebelius tomorrow?
