David Axelrod is not a master of metaphor. Either that or he likes cheap wine. On Tuesday the Obama campaign strategist told a group of New Hampshire politicians and business leaders that he believes the main advantage the Obama campaign has is that the prospective Republican candidates lack fresh ideas. “This isn’t new wine and old bottles,” he said. “This is old wine and old bottles.”
Hmm, old wine and old bottles. Does he mean vintage? Does he mean valuable? Does he mean something people want? Doesn’t he know that he paid the Republicans a compliment?
And what is the Obama campaign offering America other than a big box of whine?
