A telling week?

Posted By on Mon, Jul 28, 2008 at 5:41 AM

Brummett thinks it was Obama's week.

Barack Obama, the Democrat, toured the Middle East, appearing vigorous and worldly and urbane and presidential, shining in controlled settings with the media kept at a distance and under control in ways that should have made Ronald Reagan's old handlers proud.

Yet it was driving Republicans crazy. They're the ones who are supposed to manufacture their own handsome, self-serving imagery while they stymie and exploit the media.

Bill Kristol isn't happy about Obama's European reception, that's for sure.

On the other hand, Adam Nagourney of the Times wonders why there's been no Barack bounce.
