Political lightning strikes twice

Senator Barack Obama screws up again:
In another broadside indicating the increasingly heated race for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., implied Thursday that comments made by Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., were careless and unpresidential.

Sen. Clinton was referring to Obama's statement earlier in the day that he had ruled out using nuclear weapons against al Qaeda targets in Afghanistan or Pakistan.

Clinton also suggested Obama's high-profile speech earlier in the week in which he said would be willing to invade Pakistan to attack high-profile al Qaeda targets, given actionable intelligence, was inappropriate, further evidence that she is painting her challenger as unprepared for the job of commander in chief.
It looks like Senator Obama is turning out to be the biggest loser for the Democrats. Coincidentally, Senator McCain seems to be adopting this same role for the Republicans.

On the other hand, perhaps we are watching the embryonic stages of the formation of a new "All Losers Party". Is it possible that we might see a McCain-Obama ticket in 2008?
