Barack Obama: The Muhammad Ali of American Politics

Andrew Sullivan this weekend wrote an admiring piece on Barack Obama’s rope-a-dope political shrewdness here.

Money quote:

He is thinking further ahead than the Republicans. . . . And . . . when you look at it closely, you see that in all this, he has both maintained his vast ambitions and yet shrewdly minimised the political risks to himself. This is cunning, not weakness. And one day, his opponents will realise it.
