What's the talk of the Politics Online Conference

I’m supposed to give the real skinny on the Dennis Miller Show tomorrow, but… as a preview…. assuming it doesn’t change radically after tonight’s results… the buzz among the politically obsessed (who else attends something called the Politics Online Conference?)… is amazement… call it even shock and awe… that Obama may have shot himself in the foot over NAFTA at the last possible moment to save Hillary’s campaign. Of course, these are the political cognescenti and ahead of the curve on such things, so the voters may not have caught up with it. But the further buzz is that they will and things like this will make Obama a weak candidate in the Fall. Ironically, Hillary would be the stronger Dem candidates, although the polls have been showing Obama the stronger for some time. Call it the political “futures” market.
