An anti-Obama rebound?

I'm picking up a vibe in a number of lefty blogs that might be called Obama rebound. Bloggers who are feeling they need to say that (a) Barack Obama is not the second coming, and (b) Hilary Clinton isn't all that bad.

What this portends at the polls, we shall see. Obama won the last several contests quite handily. Indeed, I was surprised at how substantially he took Maine. But we may see a touchy electorate rebound against Obama in the "Potomac Primary" tomorrow the same way the folks in NH did after the press rushed to anoint Obama after the Iowa Caucus.

Given the way the current expectations that Clinton could easily go until TX and Ohio without a win, Obama losing any of these primaries will be perceived as a set back.

Should be interesting tomorrow.
