It’s hard to deny the inchoate emotional momentum behind the Crown Prince. Dice are rolling. And all one way.
We’re not in the habit of quoting Robert Samuelson but he strikes a chord here, noting the “Obama Delusion.” From the remove of the Guardian, the claim is made that Obama won/HRC lost the election two weeks ago, the day after the California primary. Perhaps. There are hundreds of events that collide daily, most not even noticed by the “best team in in political reporting” or whatever. At least the Stiftung can say without hesitation we don’t do the Obama-dream-thing.
In the absence of anything breaking the Crown Prince and his throngs, it looks like he will indeed get his coronation. We hope we are wrong about his reign. A shame that The Sharper Image will not be around to join the festivities.
