Charles Krauthammer: Obama in the Footsteps of Reagan

Charles Krauthammer - Hail Mary vs. Cool Barry:

Obama... understands that this election, like the election of 1980, demands only one thing of the challenger: Make yourself acceptable. Once Ronald Reagan convinced America that he was not menacing, he won in a landslide. If Obama convinces the electorate that he is not too exotic or green or unprepared, he wins as well.
