88. You have got to be kidding me...
Edited on Fri May-23-08 10:18 PM by quark219
Taboo #1 in politics: Raising the specter of your opponent's assassination.

The only person destroying Hillary's Clinton's reputation is Hillary Clinton.

The Obama camp has outsmarted Hillary Clinton every darned step of the way in this campaign. And their wise strategy, over the last several weeks, has been to say little or nothing that's disparaging, praise her at every opportunity, and just let her self-destruct.

Seems to me that strategy is working.

Special Note: Six weeks ago I was a Hillary Clinton fan, and was agonizing over whom to vote for in the PA primary. After a lot of thought, I voted for Obama. Seems to me that's one decision I won't be regretting.
