The grown-ups in the Democratic Party are looking beyond what they anticipate will be Barack Obama's single term, and positioning themselves to survive the aftermath.
How else to explain the words of "Obama surrogate" Ed Rendell, former governor of Pennsylvania and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton acolyte?
Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon reports: A top Obama surrogate said the president will not have to worry about a swooning media or crowds overcome by fainting spells in 2012. "The media and the population saw him as this transformative figure [in 2008]; he was the first serious black candidate, a new, young, promising figure," said former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell. "People have sobered to that; the newness has faded and people now see him as another practical politician."
Rendell is known for being blunt, a theme he touches on in his new book, A Nation of Wusses, and a trait that has gotten him in hot water on the campaign trail. Rendell was a passionate supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2008, and is reputed to remain close to both of the Clintons.
As I wrote 11 days ago: Panic is setting in among the people who ran the Democratic Party prior to the miraculous arrival on the scene of Barack Hussein Obama and the perfect storm of events that propelled him into the White House. These people, starting with Bill Clinton, the master Democratic politician of our era, can read the tea leaves
The Democratic scorpions are sharing a bottle. Couldn't happen to a nicer party

You gotta be kidding me. nobama... practical? He's the most impractical politician in the USA.
Don’t be fooled.
Obama isn’t done pandering yet.
It is going to be hard to beat him.
The Obama crazies will still show up to vote in November.
Exactly. Clinton is/was a narcissistic pragmatist. The ideologue in that administration was Hillary more than Bill. When she stepped too far with health care reform, he and his political operatives pragmatically pulled back and retooled their message. Obama is a narcissist and blind ideologue. He sees himself as a Messiah sent to right all wrongs, but is too prejudiced/racist and indoctrinated to realize that his conclusions and ideology are just wrong. Most people grow beyond sophomore sociology. He actually believes that crap.
The ‘rats are leaving the sinking ship.
It sounds fine, but “Fast Eddie” Rendell is never to be trusted no matter what he says. He’s a Philadelphia thug Democrat hack.
“The Democratic scorpions are sharing a bottle.”
Insult to scorpions.
Don’t get your hopes too high. They may just be going off for more supplies.
bambi isn’t done giving away your money yet and he has no boundaries.
Scorched earth is all he will leave behind if he leaves.
It will be the opposite, those who will vote for Romney will come out in record numbers. Look for a Romney landslide.
I'm praying that you have the gift of seeing into the future!
How many re-runs of an Obama speech will people be willing to tolerate. He is on every station 24 hours a day. He is riding on Air Force One everywhere raising money to pay off the media.
There are no “grown-ups” in the democrat party. It’s filled with either communists, islamists or idiots too dumb to know any difference. There is no fourth categroy.
There’s not enough Obama crazies to win. He is just trying to stay above water with this pandering and get his base to actually show up. The middle has written him off.
The Obamaphone is for his digital brownshirts. They will use them to stir up those flashmobs of last year and use the flashmobs against republicans, whites and to supress the vote in areas where Republicans dominate. They will send them out to cause such a ruckus at polling places during the critical hours of voting for working people. It will all be done by text message.
Rats tiptoeing down the gangplank.
