The Obama Rainbow Tour -- After The Tour Hangover

There you are, I told you so

The Friday-Sunday poll, mostly conducted as Obama was returning from his much-publicized overseas trip and released just this hour, shows McCain now ahead 49%-45% among voters that Gallup believes are most likely to go to the polls in November. In late June, he was behind among likely voters, 50%-44%.…

If the story behind the story of the canceled troop visit has run its course, one question remains: Why didn’t Mr. Obama leave his aides behind, even the retired general, and make the visit by himself?
“Even him going alone would likely be characterized by some as a political event,” Mr. Gibbs said in an interview on Monday, adding, “He decided not to put the troops in that position.”

Obama's answer to his lack of a bump and his inability to even match the lead his party has in the polling numbers -- drum roll -- racism!
Answer: Pretty well. He’s not playing the race card. From Newsday:
“The point is, with change comes some risk, and I combine two things,” he said. One is a shift in policies, the other a biography he said will take people time to process. “They’re going to keep their powder dry and get as much information as they can the next three months,” he added.
