For the past week, Hillary Clinton has praised John McCain while dismissing Barack Obama as sort of a Cub Scout with ambition. The condescending tone is unacceptable. She and McCain have passed "the Commander-in-Chief test and you will have to ask Senator Obama about his credentials." She didn't inform us of the author of the test or the one handing out pass-fail grades. Is water-boarding part of the test?
Then there was her statement that "Senator McCain and I bring a lifetime of experience. Senator Obama brings a speech in 2002." Yikes! Whoa Nelly! And, shame on you! (To avoid plagiarism charges, I am borrowing the "shame on you" comment from Mrs. Clinton. Remember when she yelled at Barack, the day after she said,"I am honored, honored", to be on the stage with Senator Obama", "Shame on you Barack Obama." Well, shame on you Hillary Clinton. Shame on you.)
As Keith Olberman said on CNBC, no candidate in his lifetime has praised the other Party's nominee to help win a primary.
To top off the week, Canadian PM Harper said it was the Clinton campaign that contacted the Canadians to assure them that she would not scuttle NAFTA--the Clinton job disaster. Ah, but Ohio can't redo now can they.
So now the grand theft is about to take place. The object of the theft? The soul of the Democratic Party. Clinton advisers Harold Ickes and Mark Penn are enough to make anyone resign from the Party but add Howard Wolfson's attack that Barrack is "Ken Starr" and it is an invitation to leave!"
My fear is that Barack underestimates how sharp the knives are in Hillary and Bills hands. The Clinton's are confident they are about to steal the nomination. It looks as if Hillary deliberately left her name on the Michigan ballot, knowing that the other wimps would play by the rules and now she has the chutzpah to claim she won. World Wrestling has higher standards for heaven's sake. She won? Hulk Hogan move over.
And, by the way, if they steal the nomination they will lose the general election and blame young people for not voting. (Unless, of course, she runs with her fellow graduate of Commander-in-Chief school.)
