It was a performance by the vice president guaranteed to amp up -– and buck up -– worried Democrats, who had fallen into a paralysis of anxiety after the president's debate. No one represented that Democratic angst more than blogger Andrew Sullivan, a supporter of the president.Look, here's my tip --
Obama adviser David Axelrod said "Andrew is a unique thinker, and I can't speak for how he might react to this. I hope he is [reassured]," Axelrod said, adding that he had "high regard for [Sullivan] by the way."
Sullivan, for the record, called the night "a solid win for Biden" and called Ryan "competent."
No campaign should be run with the thought it will determine whether Andrew Sullivan pitches one of his frequent fits. I was around when he called all of us on the left a "fifth column" when he was cheerleading the Iraq War and I'm still around now. He can go ahead and jump if he feels the need.
