There was a very interesting piece yesterday at RealClearPolitics called Why Obama is in Trouble. It’s worth a read, I assure you. And I can’t wait to hear what our liberal-leaning readers have to say about it.

Why Obama is in Trouble
By Steven Warshawsky

There is palpable anxiety, even despair, among many Republicans and conservatives over the possibility that Barack Obama will be elected president this November. This anxiety is being fueled by the mainstream media’s fawning coverage of Obama’s every word, while shamelessly downplaying John McCain’s campaign; by public opinion polls that purport to show Obama “leading” the race over McCain; and by political commentators, on both sides of the aisle, who believe this is the Democrats’ “election to lose,” based on historical cycles, an uneven economy, high gas prices, continuing opposition to the Iraq War, and President Bush’s dismal approval ratings.

I don’t share this anxiety. For months now, I have been reassuring my right-leaning friends that Barack Obama will not be elected president.
