He goes on to add into the mix…civil society…a surprise …so skeptical of the media…found from a poll of nearly 50 countries…

a change in strategy .. discussed 2 months back in the Clinton Camp……..focus on older voters and Catholics…the embattled thorn in Obama’s side…Pastor Wright…and …the light is still on at the end of that tunnel….

the columnist writes… the Clinton Camp believe…the unions…environmental groups …abortion- rights groups and others desperate for the White House will quell any any long term eruption from the losing Dem. side….
