What Hillary is doing that Obama should be

I've been saying since MS that Obama needs to now stop worrying about Clinton since he all but has this nomination sewn up. He needs to turn his attention squarely on McCain, and start providing a little more substantive information on his proposed policies. As much as I hate to say it, Hillary is beating Obama to the punch by attacking McCain while he's in Iraq. This is the perfect time to do just that, but the Obama campaign is eerily quiet. They did, however, take the time to defend Clinton's attack in that same speech, but why is Obama playing defense and not offense?

I hope Obama changes his game here pretty soon. Rather than bother with attacking Clinton, he needs to hit McCain with everything he has, and only pay attention to Hillary's attacks in a way that diminishes her importance. To keep defending against her attacks is to give her too much stature. Marginalizing her will take her down a few pegs in the publics view, and would also serve to demoralize her.
