Is Obama Tanking, And Is That A Good Thing? [eddiebear]

I must confess, I was always a bit amazed at the Obama "steamroller". Despite few, if any, legislative achievements of note, he rode the wave of unyielding media support, activist enthusiasm, and internet backing into what appeared, after the Potomac Primaries, a coronation and victory lap to the Democrat Nomination in Denver, as well as a November victory that would have made the 1964 Election look like a nailbiter.

Well, it appears as though much of the Obama hype is falling on a rough patch. Rev. Wright, Michelle's goofy comments, "bitter" and "clinging" remarks, more Rev. Wright, a disastrous debate performance, and Operation Chaos, to name a few events, have taken their toll. So much so, his Realclearpolitics.com lead is all but gone.

I know that Obama still has the delegate lead, still leads in North Carolina (albeit barely), and has a good shot in Indiana (though Hillary! will probably carry that state), and more superdelegates are leaning his way now. I know the media will continue to prop him up as much as they can, since they have invested so much so far in acting as an in-kind contribution to his candidacy. And I also concede that Barry will still have maniacal support from his true believers in the General Election.

So, I ask: Has Obama tanked? Is this merely a blip on his way to a January Coronation? And is this a good thing, given that McCain or The Canklesaurus would be President if not him?
