Andrew Sullivan on Obama-Clinton

Wherein he argues (correctly I think) that Clinton has political post-traumatic stress disorder. Understandably so, but real nonetheless. And not a prescription of hope for the future.

The choice between Clinton and Obama is the choice between a defensive crouch and a confident engagement. It is the choice between someone who lost their beliefs in a welter of fear; and someone who has faith that his worldview can persuade a majority.
Post-Boomer politics, please God. Even if its too liberal for my tastes (which with Obama it is), I think I'll have to take it over the alternative.
