The Democrats’ bad presidential choice

There's been much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the perceived weakness of the Republican primary field, but Frank J. Fleming notes - correctly - that all is not sweetness and light for the Democrats, either...
The primaries are supposed to be to find the strongest candidate for the general election, but that route is simply failing for the Democrats this time. The Republican primary field has at least offered a few options people can imagine doing a decent job as president, but the reason for Obama’s easy success so far in the Democratic primaries (the fact that he’s the incumbent) means no one will be able to imagine that about the Democratic nominee.

Democratic voters must be looking to the Republican field with envy. Having a few potentially bad choices certainly beats having just a single horrible one.
