WaPo’s Chris Cillizza wonders: Is Candidate Obama … overrated? « Hot Air: "Well, we’re finding out more about how Team Obama shattered those fundraising records, too. But Cillizza is wrong about the question being “unimaginable”; plenty of us “imagined” it at the time, and not just about Obama as a candidate. He was easily the least-experienced major-party nominee in decades, with no military, business, or executive experience prior to his candidacy. The only elections he won were in a heavily Democratic region — Chicago — and against Alan Keyes in his one statewide race in 2004. Obama had never distinguished himself as a legislative leader. His only real claim to fame was that he wrote two memoirs and gave a great speech at the 2004 Democratic convention."
