'Unease' over Obama

Notorious Clinton apologist Lanny Davis:
I have tried to get over my unease surrounding Barack Obama's response to the sermons and writings of his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. But the unanswered questions remain.
Let's reconstruct that, shall we?
I have tried to get over my unease surrounding Bill Clinton's perjury, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy to solicit illegal contributions from agents of communist China. But the unanswered questions remain.
Much more like it. Of course, what Davis is really doing, by publishing that op-ed in the Wall Street Journal (no doubt it was first pitched to, and turned down by, the New York Times and Washington Post) is to sow doubts about Obama's electabiliy and thereby undermine Obama's fundraising.

Ed Morrisey:
How much do readers want to bet that Lanny Davis gets over the Jeremiah Wright scandal at about the time Hillary Clinton gets out of the race? Me too, but for the moment, we can enjoy the blue-on-blue attacks that presage the general election.
Kind of hard not to be cynical about Lanny Davis, who lost all credibility in 1998, if he ever had any credibility to begin with. Maybe he could start over in Pakistan.
