Clinton's Kosovo Experience


via Ben Smith at Poltico:

Obama communications director Robert Gibbs emails reporters with a picture of Clinton and Sheryl Crow from a 1996 trip to Kosovo, linking a series of recent articles including this Chicago Tribune piece making the point that Clinton wasn't a central player on foreign policy in her husband's administration.

Clinton's claim to the mantle of experience has always been complicated, though it's one voters, according to polls, accept. Obama has made sporadic attempts, starting in the fall in Iowa, to challenge it. This shot -- complete with silly photo -- seems to open a new front, as well as to signal the general atmosphere of ill-will between the campaigns.

6. You're right
If this trip is where she got some of her experience, I guess we can expect Sinbad and Cheryl Crow to be foreign policy advisers in her administration.

Oh, and Ms. Clinton was there to lend her voice, too.

10. I think it's cool that they were there for the troops.

Guess we have different ideas about things like that.
As for her Kosovo experience, I have no doubt it's there.


Btw - She can't sing worth a damn, so I might have been more supportive had you gone that route...

11. Make that part of an attack ad, Barack
Play the clip from the conference call with Wolfson and Penn where they are asked about what specific foreign policy crisis that Hillary has solved and, while they are drawing an audible blank for the better part of 10 seconds, show this photo with an appropriate caption.

Just fucking do it.
