MODO On BHO

Barack should be leery of Maureen Dowd's advice, says Tom Bevan. I'd split the difference myself. I don't think Obama should go for Hillary's jugular. It's not his style. But when she seems more anecdotal and conversational than he does (and she has recently), he needs to play down the seminar and pump up the sermon. But he shouldn't over-think it or try too hard. The great gift Obama has is that, compared to everyone else, he seems like a real human being. Over-calculated rhetoric could derail one of his best assets. In the end, he has to hope others will see through the fathomless phoniness of HRC.
