The first press conference (Friday) represented a lot of different things, but I agree that this little throwaway line was significant in terms of this week's discussion.
I also toss in this article from earlier in the campaign about the thorny issue of Obama's own obvious self-confidence. Most successful politicians are self confident. Is this another subtle way Obama was squeezed, because of his race?
Are those same attitudes somehow evident in this much-discussed post-election dialogue among Newsweek editors?
