The real downside to Obama-mania

Here's a comment that was left on an article asking the question if the news media have been unfair to Hillary Clinton:

Aw, gee, Jack. Just because everything she and President Clinton say and do are attacked by the media, and Obama gets continual positive coverage and commentary, you are asking if the media is unfair to her??? I’m shocked, I tell you - shocked!!

In all my 40+ years watching politics I have never seen anything like the obsessive, relentless pro-Obama bias that is rampant right now. Many of us out here know why: it’s to get him nominated, and then to ambush him with a far bigger smear campaign than was set upon Kerry, Gore or Dukakis. The only thing that amazes me is that Obama’s supporters refuse to see this coming.

I'm actually quite concerned about this.

    Well, this is a slippery-slope argument here...though I do think something one should be aware of. Anyone is going to be attacked--no matter who they are. Obama does give hope, which is something Hillary hasn't figured out yet:

    Sure, she's "tough" and "been through the ropes," but she has done nothing to translate her policies into something one can believe in.
