Is there some sort of prize being given to the reporter who can best spew Karl Rove talking points about Obama? I mean, even without a secret ballot, you gotta give the trophy to David "White House" Gregory:

All this talk about whether it's weirdness or that you can't quite nail down what his core is all about, is to say there's question mark above this guy's head. Until you get that answered, you have to vote for the guy you know and trust. That's McCain.
