About the comment by Penn: what am I missing?
Chris Mathews and MSNBC have been playing it again and again.

He referred to the "cocaine story" and everyone is jumping over him. What did he do wrong?

And about Obama's use of drugs: if he is the nominee and if anyone is thinking that the Republicans will not milk it dry - what with their "values" stuff - s/he is really naive.

1. He referred to it after Clinton said she didn't authorize it and was sorry
anyone in her campaign was involved in smearing him. And after Clinton apologized, which was nice of her.

Yes, the rethugs will bring it up, but his own party didn't have to. And he's already outed himself on his drug usage; it looked sleazy.

6. OK, so how, then, do you apologize
or even refer to that event?

"We made a mistake, we raised an issue that I will not name it and the person behind that resigned?"

It was in the open, especially with the resignation of Shaheen so what do you do, especially if asked? Talking in hints and with nods and winks just make it worse.

And I think that it was the Edwards guy who cried "gotch."

7. For starters, you don't bring it up with glee, as it appeared Penn did.
I think it's all way too calculated, and I'm not alone.

2. It's the "when did you stop bearing your wife" tactic
He says "we're not going to bring up the issue of COCAINE use" which only belavors the point (while he's just said he WON'T do that).

Slimeball. I wouldn't buy a used kleenex from that guy ...

5. I should have stuck with initial impulse (used CAR) ...

4. He got it "out there" again -- twisting the knife.
I'm surprised - honestly - that this guy has a rep of being 'one of the best'. How/when did he earn that?
