There may be gold in them thar hills...

...but there's nothing between Peggy Noonan's ears. The stupidity should have stopped at "fine, good," but no... she had to go all paratactic on us, pasting on extra meaninglessness like a high-schooler straining to fill out a 500-word essay assignment. And who, pray tell, has "tagged" Obama as all these things? YOU, fat bastard! Well, maybe not "fat", but the "bastard" part stays.

Daily Kos: State of the Nation - quoth Nooners thus:
Main thought. Hillary Clinton is not Barack Obama's problem. America is Mr. Obama's problem. He has been tagged as a snooty lefty, as the glamorous, ambivalent candidate from Men's Vogue, the candidate who loves America because of the great progress it has made in terms of racial fairness. Fine, good. But has he ever gotten misty-eyed over . . . the Wright Brothers and what kind of country allowed them to go off on their own and change everything? How about D-Day, or George Washington, or Henry Ford, or the losers and brigands who flocked to Sutter's Mill, who pushed their way west because there was gold in them thar hills? There's gold in that history.
