Craig Crawford talks about drug topic with Keith Olbermann (MSNBC, 12/13)

With video

For all the damage that raising Barack Obamas teenage drug use might inflict upon Hillary Rodham Clintons camp, this is not a risk-free matter for him. The Illinois senator and presidential hopeful still ought to assure Democratic voters that he has told all there is to tell, that there is nothing else along these lines that might undermine him as a party nominee.

Throughout the 2000 presidential campaign, George W. Bush managed to dodge detailed questions about his partying past in the same way that Obama's team is now doing by calling foul against anyone who brings it up. But in the final weekend before the 2000 election a drunk driving arrest surfaced that Bush had never revealed. It almost cost him the race.

Democrats might want to be sure that nothing similar could happen to Obama, but only he can say for certain. And that is the point that Clintons now-ousted adviser, Bill Shaheen, so clumsily tried to make in noting that Republicans might well ask loaded questions such as whether Obama had ever dealt drugs.

Shaheen's warning was not theoretical. GOP contender Mitt Romney has already slammed Obama for being a poor role model by openly talking about his drug use with high school students last month in New Hampshire. That might be tame compared to what would be hurled against Obama in a general election battle.

4. because Keith is one of the few who give Hillary fair play?
that's enough reason for many DUbamas to tune him out.

9. No, you can like Olbermann
and still not agree with everything he says. For instance, I find it grating how on almost every show he spends more than a palatable amount of time going over some stupid shhhite that Bill O'Reilly said on Fox. I like Keith but really it's becoming an obsession like Lou Dobbs immigration rants.

However, whether he's a secret Hillary supporter or not, I could care less but if he's joining the Obama mud slinging team, I will lose respect for him.
