The Smart Money Knows What's Happening

Joe Klein, the author of Primary Colors, wonders whether Kerry is
"a latter-day Ron Burgundy—the idiot 1970s anchorman of Will Ferrell's recent film who would read anything that appeared on his TelePrompTer?"
Klein answers in the negative. Apparently he thinks Sen. Nuance is the captive of idiot political advisers who extrapolate focus-group pieties about "positive politics" into an unwillingness to join issue even where W. is vulnerable.

Mebbe so. But wouldn't a President who can't overrule his advisers (especially ones from today's Democratic Party) necessarily be a failure?
