Hillary Vs. Bill
Seems Bill Clinton is doing his wife Hillary more harm than good in her quest to become the Democratic nominee for president.
Thwarting Hillary's political ambitions is probably a worse sin in her mind than marital infidelity.
So Bill better watch out.
On the other hand, Victor Davis Hanson wonders why Bill wants America to embrace Hillary when he spent 30 years running away from her.

Don't exit polls also show that Bill Clinton is still the most personally popular Democrat? They used to. I'm not sure it's a bad thing for Hillary to have Bill campaigning for her. As for the negative tone, that's politics, especially when you're trailing and trying to take the shine off your opponent.

The Clintons are the epitome of sleaze. Worse than that, it is a widely held belief that thay had murders committed to ensure their perverted idea of another Kennedy-type dynasty.
Like the Mafia, the two families are now at odds and I believe there's going to be some serious slagging before this internicene struggle is over.
Another great example of insects eating their young.
MITT FOR PRESIDENT!!

Keep any eye on the Clintons. It will be a case study of two people completely losing their minds in a public forum.
This is a rare event, so enjoy.
It couldn't happen to two more deserving bowl floaters. In a perfect world the Clintons would be living their blue collar lives in a double wide back in the great state of Arkansas.

During the Clinton presidency, Senator McCain "broke" the Chelsea rule (leaving her out of the Clinton barbs) with the following:
Q. Why is Chelsea so ugly?
A. Because Janet Reno is her father!

"The comments included remarks by Ms. Clinton suggesting former president Lyndon B. Johnson played a bigger role in achieving civil rights gains for African-Americans than Martin Luther King Jr."
I know of at least one "pundit" who describes these type of statements as part of a designed strategy rather than political gaffes. The apparent strategy of the Clintons is to try to turn the black vote towards Obama and thereby make the Democratic campaign a race-based campaign. The thinking goes that this will have the effect of driving white Democrats away from Obama and towards Hillary. After winning the Democratic nomination, these same black voters will still vote Democrat rather than Republican.
I am not sure that white liberal Democratic voters can be counted upon to carry out their presumed role in this strategy. However, the Clintons are both shrewd politicians and the frequency of these types of statements with no follow up clarifying statements or retractions suggests that a more sinister play is being attempted.

BTW, if you are going to alter the typology of the name of the Democrat Party, please remember that in addition to making the "r" uppercase, you should not be dropping the "c"; it is supposed to be changed to an "n".

The guilt feelings carried by many white democrats could cause them to move over to Obama. The Clinton strategy that you cite could well backfire. I can't see that the Clinton presidency did much for African-Americans and many Americans may come to that conclusion too. We may well wind up with a Republican president and a Democrat dominated Congress.
