Drudge might be giving Sullivan too much credit here

Daily Beast blogger Andrew Sullivan, an Obama supporter, is widely read for sure. But he doesn't carry nearly enough clout for his commentary to get this kind of treatment, as seen on the Drudge Report today:

Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve. ...

Or maybe, just maybe, Obama can regain our trust and confidence somehow in the next debate. Maybe he can begin to give us a positive vision of what he wants to do (amazing that it's October and some of us are still trying to help him, but he cannot).

I've never seen a candidate self-destruct for no external reason this late in a campaign before. Gore was better in his first debate - and he threw a solid lead into the trash that night. Even Bush was better in 2004 than Obama last week. Even Reagan's meandering mess in 1984 was better - and he had approaching Alzheimer's to blame.
