A diagnosis is relatively simple and to ignore this until later in the campaign will be worse than, had Edwards been the Democratic nominee, discovering his affair. I mean Clinton overcame the revelations of prior infidelity episodes, and actual accusations of harassment in his campaign. But failing mental capability is unrecoverable, even when it is treatable.
Is the consensus view here that, starting with the convention, pretty much every "D" except Obama will be harping on this non-stop?
I have said all along that the Democrats were going to wait until the Convention before doing anything
, letting the Republicans burn through much of their ammo and money early. They have seen what McCain can fire at them.
The Democrats have Senility, Anger Management, Keating, Current Lobbyists, Ralph Reed, Iraq, Economy, Bush Echo, NeoCon policies, SSDD. Then there are hard Flip Flops on so many issues.
Why there is even a website... Master List of McCain Flip-Flops and Gaffes
So, to answer your question, I think there are going to be a solid group of folks, led by Biden, but also from the DNC and 527 Groups that go after McCain on all sorts of very legitimate issues for the 65 days after the Convention.
