He also backs into some of his praise, allowing how John McCain isn't necessarily to blame for circumstance making Obama seem a reasonable choice:
"You can't blame McCain. In an election in which all the fundamentals are working for the opposition, he feels he has to keep throwing long in order to keep hope alive. Nonetheless, his frenetic improvisation has perversely (for him) framed the rookie challenger favorably as calm, steady and cool."Overall, however, the opinion that carries through the piece is that in spite of all the faults Krauthammer might find with Barack, he believes that Obama has shown poise, confidence, and the type of leadership that allows him to seem plausible as commander in chief, a test that likely helps seal the deal, taking him from the new hotness to very like our new President in the next few months.
Interesting stuff, mainly because of the author.
