Believing In Yesterday

As even Hillary's once-mighty national lead collapses, Josh Marshall discusses the campaign's grievous strategic error. His instincts on the Democratic Party are certainly better than mine -- and his argument -- the "looking backwards" scenario -- echoes similar observations from my friend Dan Gerstein.

However, there is also the possibility that the explanation to Sen. Clinton's problems is much more obvious: She really is a poor candidate and someone whose basic negatives are so high that even members of her own party see it -- especially when compared to a candidate whose charisma rivals Bill Clinton's in his heyday.

UPDATE: Incorrect link now fixed.
