Despite some rough patches over the last several weeks, Team Obama remains confident:
But Obama's aides said they were confident with the course of the campaign. They said that, other than making some shifts around the edges, particularly in response to McCain's effort to seize the change issue from Obama, they were not planning any major deviation from a strategy that called for a steady escalation of attacks on McCain as the race heads toward the debates.
And the authors of the article seek to ease our worried mind as well:
That response is characteristic for a campaign that has presented itself as disciplined and unflappable and is reminiscent of the way Obama's campaign reacted a year ago when it came under fire from allies who said it was not being tough enough in going after Senator Hillary.
Back to Team Obama:
"We're sensitive to the fluid dynamics of the campaign, but we have a game plan and a strategy," said Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe. "We're familiar with this.”
Whew. Take heart Obama supporters, they have everything under control.
Or do they?
What are these “fluid dynamics” of which Plouffe speaks?
“And I'm sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting.”
Team Obama has a bladder control problem.
