    I don't believe Obama's performance was step 1 of a grand plan to make himself the underdog, but I firmly believe that he and his team are smart enough (and crafty enough) to find a way to turn the disadvantage into an advantage
    ... although I am always very wary of people asserting, with the amount of certainty demonstrated by this diarist, what Obama -- (or anyone else for that matter) -- WILL do.  

    It smacks too strongly of loads of projection and a "cult of personality" mindset.  (i.e. "This is what I would like to believe my idealized hero would do, so I KNOW he WILL do it.")

    I remember a number of people telling us with equal certainty what Obama WOULD do at the first debate ... only to be proved completely wrong.
