Statements From Clinton And Lieberman Endorsing McCain Over Obama
Hillary Clinton: "I think it's imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold. I believe that I've done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you'll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy."

Hillary Clinton: "I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say. He's never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002."

Joe Lieberman: "When it comes to keeping America safe in this time of war, John has proven that he has the experience, the strength, and the character, to be our commander-in-chief from day one. I have traveled the world with John, so I can tell you how much he is liked and admired by leaders across the globe. He will be a President our friends will respect and our enemies will fear, and a President who will lead our nation on the world stage with purpose and principle."

5. No Whining Here - Just Pointing Out A Harsh Reality
Those remarks are indefensible.

11. From Hillary? yes it is.
I am not sure why a 1995 speech in China is really more experience than a speech in 2002. Maybe Ickes, Wolfson, Penn, or someone else from the Clinton campaign can come up with a self-defeating reason, and share it with us.

4. Lol
Yeah, that sort of "respect" disqualifies her husband from the presidency too. If Bob Kerrey had said that of Bill and Poppy in 1992, Hillary would've lost her fucking mind. And you guys would be singing a different tune today.

7. Maybe we can add Clinton's results to be the same as Joe's?
If I am left with Clinton I guess voting for McCain will not be so bad after all we do know he has been tested and not for who he got in bed with. What a thing to say. What is wrong with Clinton any how? And all that stuff about Church. This is a blood sport for sure.

8. There is just no way to justify her statement. There is also no way
to explain it away. There are a million ways to go after BO without pumping up the other side. The only way I can explain it is that she figures she's got to destroy Obama now and she'll worry about McCain later and hope that everybody forgets she said this. People won't forget this, especially Republicans and Independents.

9. We need to chip in
and buy water-proof anti-fungal cream.

Hillary has jumped the shark so many times, it has athlete's fin.

10. I think it is way past time someone publicly explains to Hillary the difference between
being a Democrat and what that means and being a Republican and how it relates to the mess we are in that starting about 1980 or so.
