It's probably true...

...that Barack Obama's appearance on Fox News won't win over any votes among that networks regular viewership, but I can see it having value looking toward November just the same. With a paucity of enthusiasm for John McCain within the Republican base, the obvious move will be the classic Rovian fear card. In this case, the object of fear will be the candidate himself, painting Obama as some sort of exotic, and possibly dangerous, figure. To the degree that exposure to this well educated, well spoken man of moderately liberal persuasion creates a familiarity that de-fuses the fear card, it could mean less enthusiasm, less money, and, ultimately, fewer votes for McCain.

For thos that are fretting that this is evidence that Barack Obama is not taking his place in the vanguard of the proletarian revolution, well, yeah.
