Popular Progressive: Summer of (Where's the) Love

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

With the moving up of major parties' primaries, politics have been
brutal this summer. As Joe Biden (who probably shouldn't make jokes
about Tulane being underwater) said on the Daily Show last night in
reference to Senator Obama's turn in fortune, "It's rough out there."
And it is coming within the Dem party and from the right wingers who
say things like "Edward's whored his wife's cancer for a fund raising
gimmick". Over on the right, similar gesticulations are happening
(right, John McCain?). The politics of dismantling are brutal, but
doesn't the average voter see through the strategy? To dismantle
Obama, the strategy is to minimize his foreign policy experience; to
dismantle Edwards; go after his money (via his haircut); to dismantle
Clinton, go after her war votes and on and on.
