Obama, Palin viruses duel for public’s attention

I read this Op-Ed and after I read it, I thought what is this person really trying to say.

There are two thoughts here. Obama who is viewed as an elitist by the average Joe. That view of Obama is being supported by the mainstream media's attention on Obama.

Palin is viewed as "one of us" by the average Joe and is being supported by the mainstream media's attention on making her look like "one of us".

Virus, viral? That would be the mainstream media sickness on propping itself up on thinking it knows what the American voters wants.

Democrats have a puzzle with a code name "Palin Problem". They have to solve it, and to do it effectively, because the prize is the White House.
Sarah is everywhere these days. No matter, if there are negative responses, rumors and resentments; or praises, support and encouragements. She filled media, and not only in America. Palinmania is spreading all over the world - everybody has their opinion on the new political celebrity of US.
The Palin avalanche is winning against Obama inundation. How should Democrats defeat her? Would it be better just keep their line of campaign and ignore populist idol of Republicans? Or should they put out their claws, oppose her and show her the real politics? - give advice to Democrats, if you think there still is an effective advice for them...
