Can What?

Sen. Barack Obama keeps saying: "Yes we can!"
So, Daniel Henninger asks, "can what?" This on tomorrow's Wall Street Journal Editorial Page about Sen. Obama's victory speech last night in Madison, Wisconsin.
Excellent timing, Dan! This dovetails perfectly with my two posts from earlier today.
"Listen closely to that Tuesday night Wisconsin speech. Unhinge yourself from the mesmerizing voice. What one hears is a message that is largely negative, illustrated with anecdotes of unremitting bleakness. Heavy with class warfare, it is a speech that could have been delivered by a Democrat in 1968, or even 1928."
Peel back the eloquent message of "hope" and "change", and you've got a pretty depressing message. Will voters keep listening to it for almost nine months more. It's a long time until November. This depressing message could cause the "cult of personality" to really drink the Kool-Aid - the Jonestown flavor.
