Clarity of message

The backdrop for McCain's speech today on Iraq and Afghanistan suggests that -- contrary to the talk of a clear new message plan -- they scrapped a jobs speech at the last minute.

There's nothing wrong with that kind of flexibility and opportunism -- it's a central part of any campaign.

But it's also yet another mark of how totally Obama is dominating this campaign (which is different from, though not unrelated to, winning it).
