La Morte d’Unicorn
John Heilemann in New York magazine:
Yet the emerging doubts about Obama among even his most ardent and sensible fans are deeper and more nuanced than that. After 300-plus days in office, the president remains, for many of his supporters, a worryingly indistinct figure.

Well, those convictions are only blurry if you keep ignoring items like this:

Then again, we’ve had plenty of time to get used to it.
