Two VP candidates hit the campaign trail this morning. Sarah Palin was in Golden, Colorado, speaking of the things that she and John McCain would do if elected to the White House. The message of reform was one that provides hope. Joe Biden was in Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, speaking of pocketbook fears, predicting what John McCain would not do. After listening for 15 minutes of attack after attack on John McCain, I realized that Biden had not even mentioned Senator Obama, let alone what Senator Obama plans to do about Wall Street jitters. One campaign has a message of what they’ll do, and one campaign has no message, maybe not even a clue, about what they’ll do. Isn’t this a huge flip-flop for the Obama campaign, to run on the message of fear and not hope? Isn’t this a huge flip-flop for the Obama campaign to run on the old-style politics instead of a new kind of politics?
