I think the Democratic Strategists are trying to manufacture tension within the Democratic party to make O'Blama appear to be a victim of certain "hackneyed and phantasmic" American social characteristics.
In other words, the Democrats are trying to play the race card. The Republicans have not bitten, so the Democratic actors have been handed a script and they are reading their lines, verbatim.
Wow, you little fellows are winners in my book. Let's all charge to the voting booths! Yay, everyone for O'Blama, hip, hip, hurray, hip, hip, hurray!
O'Blama, O'Blama, O'Blama, O'Blama, O'Blama!
We need these people in office.
