The Clintons always know exactly what they are doing, at least when they are losing. Hillary claims she is the best qualified candidate (and its entitled to the presidency) because she has 35 years of experience, including 8 years of derivative or vicarious presidential experience (it makes you wonder whether the Constitution should prohibit more than 2 terms of derivative presidential mandates). You’d wonder why if someone who’s ready for day-one at the White House has to wait for 35 years to get to New Hampsire to find her voice.
In any event, plenty has been said the last couple of days about Hillary’s comments regarding Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Johnson and then about Bill’s belittling of Obama’s candidacy (and all those who suport him) as a mere “fairy tale”. Is someone stirring the race issue? The interesting thing, to date, is that Obama is running as a “change candidate” not as a black candidate and not on a minority-centric platform.
In today’s Washington Post, there were three excellent op-eds on the subjects of: Why whites support Obama; why so few black supporters do; and why Hillary better be careful.
Freud said that there was no such thing as random behavior, and the Clintons will stop at nothing to get past Obama if they feel threatened. That may mean playing the race card. Hillary claims not to play the gender card, but she has and continues to do so (acting like the men are gaining up on her). I think that even if she or Bill can be questioned for statements that may seem latently racist or belittling, such questions ultimately benefit Hillary. The more race or possible questions of racism run through the air, white voters will become less comfortable with voting for Obama, and there are more whites in America who vote than blacks. That is why Hillary can win by using Obama’s race to her benefit.
Yes, it’s all so disgusting. It’s why people want change.

LMMFAOROTFL … that’s the best line you’ve put up in a while …
Do Guiliani next.
Yeah, you would have thought she’d have caught herself on that one . . .
I haven’t really been following much of Rudy. I guess he’s waiting for Florida before he starts saying a lot of stupid, senseless stuff. I suppose he’s running on the let’s lock up the entire country to get tough on crime and cut taxes while doing it. I suppose that the great majority of New Yorkers won’t be voting for Rudy because, well, they can’t if they were convicted of a felony under Guiliani as mayor.

LMMFAOROTFL … cugino +2 today.
I don’t know, this election could be fun if you keep on … LOLOL 🙂
Actually, I heard a very funny (but accurate) characterization of Rudy today as being a libertarian on everything except for civil liberties. In other words, lower taxes and put everyone behind bars.
rudy isn’t a libertarian. he created a huge gov’t in NYC; is pro-war, pro big defense and is pretty much a democrat w/ conservative views on civil liberties.
I’ll take “Rewrite already gave the best answer” for $1000, Alec!
