"Faint Praise"

Bill Kristol and Morton Kondracke on Fox News both agree that it was very faint praise of the Prince. They conclude that she gave a speech that would have been applicable to ANY Democratic candidate. They note that she praised Michelle Obama but not the Prince. No reference to his character or to his readiness to lead though she mentioned his name 10 times.

Fred Barnes said the best line in the speech was Harriet Tubman's.

I thought it was well executed but the view of the Fox pundits is she played a losing hand extremely well and is poised to come back in 2012 if, heaven forfend, the Prince loses.
