Matt Yelesias touches on an oft-overlooked point:

No matter who it is the Democrats nominate, that person is going to wind up mocked as obviously the wrong the choice; obviously just an absurd person who absurd primary voters picked over dozens of more appealing choices.

The “liberal” media (read: people like Joe Klein) and the conservative pundit class (George Will, Jonah Goldberg, Ann Coulter, Charles Krauthammer, etc.) will begin their scorched earth policy now, claiming that John Edwards is just a trial lawyer with a pretty face, that Barack Obama is a crazy liberal light on experience, and that Hillary is just…Hillary.

Apparently, the only way to be considered “serious” on certain issues is to advocate policies that are seen as deeply flawed by the vast majority of the American public.
