Obama’s blog-style bitch slap of the Clinton Campaign’s BS Machine

This may be the funniest thing you read today: Obama Campaign Skewers Clinton E-mail Statement

Pennsylvania is of particular importance, along with Ohio, Florida and Michigan, because it is dominated by the swing voters who are critical to a Democratic victory in November. No Democrat has won the presidency without winning Pennsylvania since 1948. And no candidate has won the Democratic nomination without winning Pennsylvania since 1972.

[What the Clinton campaign secretly means: PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT WE’VE LOST 14 OF THE LAST 17 CONTESTS AND SAID THAT MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA WOULDN’T COUNT FOR ANYTHING. Also, we’re still trying to wrap our minds around the amazing coincidence that the only “important” states in the nominating process are the ones that Clinton won.]

And the hits keep coming. The entire document is thoroughly entertaining.

Obama-Clinton, Clinton-Obama – either dream team is McCain’s worst nightmare. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can easily make that nightmare a reality for him right now. Here’s how:

Both publicly pledge that if are nominated for President, the other candidate will be their first choice for the Vice Presidential spot.

This immediately puts a stop to attacks on the other, or calling their ability into question. They can still debate the issues and clarify their differences, but the main focus of their anger and outrage can now be directed at the Bush-McCain policies of the past 8 years.

The enthusiastic support of the other is exactly what each candidate will need in the fall to win. Each appeals to the voters the other has the hardest time attracting. If they combine their strengths – “hope” and “work” – they both will almost certainly be in a position to lead America out of the mess we are in.

Robert, I appreciate your comment! However, I couldn’t disagree with you more. Hillary practices the old-style, divisive, anything-to-win, slash-and-burn, Republican-style politics. She fits better on a Republican ticket than a progressive ticket. Hillary Clinton is an example of why I am not registered as a Democrat.

Obama holds the promise of changing the tone in Washington, and he could not claim to do that with Hillary on his ticket.

And since when does someone who is losing a two-person race offer second-place to the clear leader?

Their policy positions are similar, and Hillary would be better than McCain policy-wise, but I can’t go beyond that in her defense.
