Thank You Hillary. You have Sucessfully innoculated Barack on Wright for the rest of the Primary

The media is no longer focused on Wright's comments nearly as much as they are on you for bringing it up.

Folks if she brings it up again she is going to look petty, self-serving, and vindictive.


I suspect the issue will now die. And while McCain will probably not bring it up. the 527s probably will but it will be treated as old news.

White Moderate voters?

It will be viewed as old news.

3. She really should have left it alone--Obama looked Presidential
with his speech regarding the controversy, and she looks small and desperate (and unpresidential) in comparison, by waiting too long to attack him on it.

8. It's a pattern
she did it in the Texas debate too with the "Xerox" comment. She could have had a golden moment after Barack's answer by saying "I believe that Senator Obama has explained that situation & nothing further needs to be said." But no, she had to go for the cheap shot, for which she was rightfully booed.

4. Perky is right.
And the metaphor is perfect, hopefully our minds are also immunized against petty attacks...

Can't wait for the GE, where we can respond to stupidity with the full support of Howard Dean and the rebel fleet...

Onward!

9. Which is why the accusations that Hillary is destroying Barack now are so baseless
Had Obama won NH and wrapped this thing up early, quite a few attack lines would have been fresh for the Republicans and their media allies to launch againt Obama at critical moments whenever they needed to freshly bloody Obama or throw his message off track just when Obama got McCain on the ropes. It is even possible they could have hit him with a lethal cocktail of fresh new attacks all at once that Obama may never have recoverd from.

The most lethal form of any attack that can be made against Obama will not come from the Clinton campaign, it would come from underground really nasty Republican operatives like the actual swiftboaters. If Obama can't handle the negative issues that come up now in milder form (there have not been hardly if any truly harsh attack ads aired in this campaign so far from either side - negative yes, but not brutal) he would be dead meat if they were sprung suddenly full blown against him in the General. Primaries can serve as vaccines in that way.

All of this stuff; Rezco, Wright, Obama's use of passages from Patrick's speeches etc. were things the Republicans already knew. They were on public record - not much muck raking needed to dig them up. The Republicans ran a candidate against Patrick for God's sake, they certainly knew that Obama used some of the same lines in his speeches now as Patrick had before.

Which is why I find the current talking point against Clinton so vile; that if she can't win herself she doesn't care if Obama is destroyed by her trying. It is actually a reverse way of helping destroy Clinton to push that claim, by continuing to push how much of a "monster" she really is - which in fact is a scrotched earth tactic against her. Both of these Democrats are fighting hard to win, and Obama has been no less guilty of seemingly working to raise Hillary's negatives than the other way around.

And you may well be right about Wright. If nothing else Obama is much better off having this out in the open now and turned into old news by the time he faces McCain, if he faces McCain, in the Fall.
