Get Out of the Kitchen


What was it that Bill Clinton said after the Philadelphia debate when Obama accused the press of not focusing on issues and distracting the electorate? Something about not complaining, about politics as a contact sport and being able to stand the heat? In a twist of faith, it sure sounded like Bill was whining today about the press:

You always follow me around and play these little games, and I’m not going to play your games today. This is a day about election day . . .

. . . You have mischaracterized it to get another cheap story to divert the American people from the real urgent issues before us, and I choose not to play your game today. Have a nice day.

Then when thinking the microphones was off, Bill had replied,

I don’t think I should take any shit from anybody on that, do you?

In Hillary’s defense: when asked about Bill’s statements she looked like she’d wished she’d never married him in the first place.

  1. Clinton’s tonight victory is far less important than she expected. Could Obama have definitely defeated her?

    No, I don’t think so. He was losing by some 25% points in polls just a few weeks ago. The press tried to pretend that it was going to be a very close race, but it wasn’t.

    This has been the same story over and over again from race to race. Obama significantly cuts into Hillary’s huge lead in certain races and then she calls her victory a come back. Then we move to other states and he wins.
