Beginner's Luck

In the Post, Eugene Robinson provides a good read on the “luck” of Barack Obama and the growing crankiness and desperation of John McCain. A brief excerpt:

If the grouching and grumbling continue, a campaign that once promised to be a referendum on Barack Obama's experience threatens to become a referendum on John McCain's temperament. At the moment, one of the candidates is acting presidentially and one isn't.

McCain's crankiness toward Obama reminds me of something the French writer Jean Cocteau once said: "Of course I believe in luck. How otherwise to explain the success of those you dislike?"
