Daschle Suggests Clinton Aide Should Resign For Starr Comparison
"Former Sen. Tom Daschle on Friday suggested that top Clinton advisor Howard Wolfson should resign for comparing Barack Obama's tactics to those of Ken Starr.

"It's comments like that make me question whether we do have the same standards," said the former Senate Majority Leader. "I don't think that you can make a statement like that and consider yourself within the bounds of civility. I mean, this shouldn't be tolerated. It's not acceptable, and it's unfortunate.
...
"Well," he said, "Barack Obama has more public office experience than Hillary does, that is elected public office experience. And it's not just a question of experience, it's a question of judgment, and every single time Barack has been called upon to show good judgment, it's not only his experience but his character and his courage that has caused him to make decisions that others only wish they'd made years later, including Hillary Clinton."

2. Tom's getting it done these days in his support for Barack Obama.
I kinda like him out there on the hustings.

He's bulked up.

4. Daschle should get over it
He has no clue the difference in an actual reference to name calling and a reference to campaign tactics so he can get over it.

5. Calling Voldemorticia a monster generically is so much worse that calling Obama a real life monster.
Of course, when one has the temerity to criticize her highness, she's quick to play the "Off with their heads!" card.

7. "Get over it" - Just like we were told after the 2000 coup
The right wing mantra.
Every time they bend us over we're supposed to grin and bear it.

6. I'm frankly surprised Daschle might have a vertebrae
He certainly didn't seem to have one when he was in office.

8. Go for it. Obama loses one. Clinton must lose one. How very fair.
Let me enjoy the knowledge that comparing someone to Ken Starr is now a deadly get-yourself-fired insult.

Yeah, that is pleasant.
