More on Obama and Daley

I think John Kass gets it about right on Obama's relationship to the local Democratic machine--it's a lot like what Ben Joravsky says and has said before--but he seems, well, generous to John McCain, in light of recent events. I think I'm being only kind of partisan, and kind of sarcastic, when I say that when it comes to puppet masters I prefer Obama's, since they can probably be bought off for less, if they're not already content with their Chicago fiefdom. Ain't one of them that scares me as much as McCain's potential future Secretary of the Treasury and master of disaster, UBS Gramm.
