Hillary and Bill Clinton Double Teaming Obama


CNN is a little slow on the draw but they finally posted that they notice what a lot of us have been witnessing since the election started; while Hillary Clinton is busy cozying up to the other candidates, hubby Bill and the rest of her attack squad, are on Obama’s (and the other candidates) flank, mercilessly shelling them like a Sherman tank. Did anyone expect anything different? It shows the difference between an experienced campaigner and a political newcomer like Obama. Obama’s biggest obstacle has been and still is; he is a relative rookie playing in a dirty card game full of Washington DC gamblers looking to stack the deck, but he is learning fast and has a large following of true believers, assuming that his image is not excessively tarnished during the upcoming Rezko trial. Hillary’s advantage has been and still is; she is a shark circling a school of fish watching for the right time to strike. The final outcome is still in question, but the experience advantage is pure Clinton.

  1. Let’s see. Michelle Obama double-teaming with her hubby is okay. Obama’s consigliere Kerry double-teaming with Obama is okay. Axelrod and Trippi double-teaming with Obama and Edwards is okay. Obama local politco and Congressional endorsers double-teaming with Obama is okay. But President Clinton or any of Hillary Clinton’s supporters double-teaming or backing Sen. Clinton is not okay? Just what I thought.

  2. ROOKIE IN POLITICS MY BUTT. HE HAS ONE OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED POLITICAL TEAMS EVER ASSEMBLED AND THE MONEY TO PAY THEM. NOT TO MENTION THE MOST FAVORABLE PRESS I’VE EVER SEEN. WHEN HILLARY HAS BEEN UNDER ATTACK BY FOX NEWS AND CHRIS MATTHEWS FOR YEARS. HIS DIRTY TRICKS STARTED WHEN HE LOST IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IMMEDIATELY PLAYED THE RACE CARD BY HIS SURROGATES. CRYING THE TOM BRADLEY EFFECT. NOW HE HAS A 527 TAKING ADS OUT IN NV TELLING LATINOS HILLARY IS TRYING TO DISENFRANCHISE THEM.
    YEAH NICE CLEAN POLITICS.

  3. Throwing and avoiding the kidney punches thrown by your opponent is part of the match. They rob your strength and can make you bleed internally. All the candidates have achieved a level of experience when it comes to campaigning. But Hillary’s expertise in campaigning far outweighs Obama’s experience. She has the ring advantage. But Obama lacks the amount of baggage Clinton brings with her just because she has been in the political ring for so long while also assisting Bill. Her weaknesses as well as her strengths are better known than Obama. She has an equal amount of detractors and supporters. The detractors will volunteer to help take her down, most likely behind the scenes. Obama is charming, witty and intelligent. He has not had the time to build up as many enemies as Clinton. He is also proving to be a fast learner when it comes to competing. As experienced as Clinton is, she will need every bit of assistance she can get from outside sources if she holds off the Obama surge.
