And here's William Kristol asserting the elitism of Obama's gaffe

Here's the editorial page piece from the New York Times. In it Kristol notes a number of points on which Obama's comments to that San Francisco audience appear inconsistent with both his positions on issues and the person he has held himself out to be.

But is the elitism Kristol asserts about the urban/rural (a/k/a small town) divide? Or it more of a class thing? On this issue, I found interesting the comments of Sherry Linkon, co-director of the Center for Working Class Studies at Youngstown State University, and other guests on today's Talk of the Nation.
