Obama's 50-State Strategy: Good Luck With That

Open fighting among the nutroots, state Democratic leaders, and the media (but I repeat myself) over Obama's "game changing" campaign that was supposed to re-write the map. His campaign of clever twentysomethinghipsters is taking flak from long-time Democratic strategists for wasting money in places where it was never going to do any good (read: help him win in November). Per the Daily Telegraph:
The Sunday Telegraph has learned that senators, governors and union leaders who have experience of winning hard-fought races in swing states have been bombarding Obamas campaign headquarters with telephone calls offering advice. But many of those calls have not been returned.

A senior Democratic strategist, who has played a prominent role in two presidential campaigns, told The Sunday Telegraph: "These guys are on the verge of blowing the greatest gimme in the history of American politics. They're the most arrogant bunch I've ever seen. They won't accept that they are losing and they won't listen."

Ah, schadenfreude, I've missed you.
