Clinton: Barack Obama Is My Candidate

"No Way, No How, No McCain"

Hillary was excellent. She played all the right notes, and played well, in the right order. She was right to spend a lot of time dwelling on her campaign, which so many people worked on and fought for. She knows very well that her supporters' emotional investment isn't something she can lightly hand over to someone else.

But she also hit McCain hard and gave the best pro-Obama argument of the convention. Yes, even better than Michelle's message.

People should compare this speech with the "dream will never die" speech by Kennedy at the 1980 convention, or the fight by Reagan people in the '76 GOP convention. HRC could have taken that route but she did just the opposite.— dende blogger

Hillary Clinton

The Fall and Rise of Hillary Clinton
What strikes me as inarguable is that Hillary is today a more resonant, consequential, and potent figure than she has ever been before. No longer merely a political persona, she has been elevated to a rarefied plane in our cultural consciousness. With her back against the wall, she both found her groove and let loose her raging id, turning herself into a character at once awful and wonderful, confounding and inspiring—thus enlarging herself to the point where she became iconic. She is bigger now than any woman in the country. Certainly, she is bigger than her husband. And although in the end she may wind up being dwarfed by Obama, for the moment she is something he is not: fully, poignantly human.

The Popular Vote

I posted this not because I believe it will change anything, nor did I post it to make the argument the Clinton campaign is making but rather as an item of interest. That is not to say that I don't think the popular vote is important or that it should be a factor.



A Special Comment

The story is another non-story the press and partisans will try to make into to something more. A story like this in the hands of a Keith Olbermann might even elicit a Special Comment. It might sound something like this.

"I had an uncle who was one of the, um, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps. And the story in our family is that when he came home he just went up in the attic and he didn't leave the house for six months."

You actually invoked the nightmare of the holocaust.

Auschwitz?

He actually said that word.

We have forgiven you your Reverend Wright and his damn America

We have forgiven you your Tony Rezko your Bill Ayers.

We have forgiven your wife for her recent conversion to the greatness of our country.

We have forgiven you the abscence of a flag pin on your lapel.

We have forgiven you the disrespect you showed the citizens of West Virginia not bothering to even ask for their votes, writing them off as not worth your time.

We have forgiven you the clinging, the religion, the guns.

We have forgiven you the Harry and Louise ads and your compromise on healthcare before the fight has begun.

But Senator we can not forgive you for this.

We cannot forgive you this -- not because it is crass and low and unthinking and wrong.

The politics of this nation is steeped in enough torture, Senator Obama, you cannot and must not invoke the imagery! Anywhere!

This, Senator, is too much.

Because a senator - a politician - a person who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that he would use the horrors of Auschwitz to get elected - has no business being, and not capacity to be, the President of the United States.

Good night and good luck.

Divided They Stand

I made the same point in my Saturday links, but it bears repeating. Op-Ed Columnnist - Divided They Stand - Op-Ed - NYTimes.com

It is, in a way, almost appropriate that the final days of the struggle for the Democratic nomination have been marked by yet another fake Clinton scandal — the latest in a long line that goes all the way back to Whitewater.

This one, in case you missed it, involved an interview Hillary Clinton gave the editorial board of South Dakota’s Argus Leader, in which she tried to make a case for her continuing campaign by pointing out that nomination fights have often gone on into the summer. As one of her illustrations, she mentioned that Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June.

It wasn’t the best example to use, but it’s absurd to suggest, as some Obama supporters immediately did, that Mrs. Clinton was making some kind of dark hint about Barack Obama’s future.

But then, it was equally absurd to portray Mrs. Clinton’s assertion that it took L.B.J.’s political skills to turn Martin Luther King’s vision into legislation as an example of politicizing race. Yet the claim that Mrs. Clinton was playing the race card, which was promoted by some Obama supporters as well as in a memo by a member of Mr. Obama’s staff, achieved wide currency.

Why does all this matter? Not for the nomination: Mr. Obama will be the Democratic nominee. But he has a problem: many grass-roots Clinton supporters feel that she has received unfair, even grotesque treatment. And the lingering bitterness from the primary campaign could cost Mr. Obama the White House.

Hillary and Elizabeth Have A Chat

Hillary and Elizabeth Have A Chat

Hillary Clinton won’t say what was discussed, but she’s talked with Elizabeth Edwards about her husband’s endorsement of rival Barack Obama. Campaigning in South Dakota today, Clinton said she has a great deal of respect for Elizabeth Edwards, and that they have a lot in common. Perhaps an endorsement is yet to come? Unlikely, but this is certainly a strong signal. The full story is from KAIT Channel 8 News.

No Official Endorsements, But . . .

Did John Edwards inadvertently reveal that he voted for Barack Obama, if so he also revealed that Elizabeth Edwards voted for Hillary Clinton.

A Great Idea

Clinton challenges Obama to Lincoln-Douglas style debate -

MARION, Ind. - Democratic rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton turned up the rhetoric Saturday in their increasingly heated primary battle as she issued a new debate challenge and he complained of a race that's largely been reduced to trivia while working families feel economic pain.

Clinton took the debate dispute to a new level, challenging Obama to face off with her in a debate without a moderator, Lincoln-Douglas style.

"Just the two of us, going for 90 minutes, asking and answering questions, we'll set whatever rules seem fair," Clinton said while campaigning in South Bend.

Her campaign made the offer formal with a letter to the Obama campaign. Obama aides said they were studying the letter.

His campaign declined.

Double Digits?

Hillary Won
