Sure, conservatives are going agog over this 2001 interview, which they claim that Obama flat out says that he’s in favor of redistributing wealth. But my basic question is, will it play in Peoria (or anywhere)?
Frankly, I don’t see it as getting much traction; I’ve never seen the “socialist” accusation as being as scary to most voters as conservatives think. I’m not sure half of voters could really define what it means to BE socialist (even the smart ones, mind). Plus, I don’t see this as getting a lot of play outside of Fox News (OTOH, this will be chalked up as Just Another Example of Liberal Media Suppressing Obama Negatives tm).
What do you all think?
