More evidence that "rising star" moniker can be kiss of death

First, there was this case.

I might argue that the politicization and subsequent deep-sixing of HB 151 qualifies as well.

Now, Maureen Dowd applies it to Barack Obama:

Hillaryland was panting for an opportunity to paint Obama as a hypocrite for saying he was different and above it all, while acting the same. And its best ally in undermining Obama is Obama, who hoists his pedestal so high he’s bound to fall off. He seems more intent on proving he’s pure than proving he’s tough. [my emphasis]

She nails the idea. And a risk we all face.
