It is clear that MSM has not recovered from its year-long swoon that has been lampooned on Saturday Night Live. Part of the Clintons' anger over the soft treatment Obama has received is not just the double standard at work in the primary, but also the frustration they feel knowing the number of skeletons dancing in Chicagoland closets. They can only imagine what treatment they would be receiving if Tony Rezko had helped them buy their New York suburban home, or if their pastor had denounced "white man's greed" in the first sermon they had ever heard him preach.

The Republicans are best advised to stay away from the burning building that is the Democratic Party.

But they should start the methodical exploration of Senator Obama's political history that the MSM seems wholly uninterested in conducting.

The frenzy over Obama's vague rhetoric may be over, but the long slog through his hard-left positions and past has just begun.
