Not quite “Dewey Beats Truman”, but…:
Obama strategist David Plouffe released a memo last week arguing that Hillary Clinton’s advantages were essentially those of incumbency, that her support was thin, and that Obama should actually be considered the front-runner.
Mark Penn, Clinton’s chief strategist, responded today with a memo that seemed designed to bludgeon all opposition into senselessness through the sheer power of numbers (links to 40 polls showing Hillary in the lead!)
Penn strongly implies another i-word is the best description of Hillary — not “incumbent,” but “inevitable.”
…I have a hunch someone will regret that someday.
