The national situation

Posted By on Sun, Mar 7, 2010 at 7:49 AM

A couple of stories in the NY Times assess the Democrats' current low estate nationally.

One is the profile of David Axelrod, message genius of the Obama campaign, perceived goat of a failing White House message machine. (Actually, polls show the public more favorably inclined toward the Obama White House on many issues than the 'baggers' howls would have you believe.)

Another is a lengthy look at what it would take to re-energize the Democratic base voters for November. Bottom line: No simple solution. One- and two-word solutions -- No, death panel, death taxes, etc. -- have always been more the province of Republicans. Maybe a Coffee Party is in order.

ALSO: Frank Rich puzzles over Obama's failure to lead.
