53. Yeah right. They want Clinton and Edwards, the DLC guys. Why do
Edited on Tue Jan-22-08 11:25 AM by Skwmom
you think they are constantly showing Clinton's attacks without showing Obama's response? Plus they are pushing the phony populist Edwards. Edwards and Bill Clinton are buds (Edwards defended Clinton in the impeachment).

A lot of people felt that the Bill Clinton in office was not the same Bill (I feel your pain) Clinton that they voted for. Since Clinton couldn't really push the populist message, I think he has set up his good buddy John to deliver that message. They then can put the "progressive" Edwards (whose really running on Feingold's record), on the ticket so that they can get the progressive support in the general election. They can also have Edwards help out Hillary in the primary.

Last night after the debate, they said Edwards went up to Obama in the NH debate at break time and told him that he needed to take Hillary on (and Obama did just that after the break). Amazing how the two guys beating up on Hillary played right into Bill Clinton's spin of Hillary the poor old woman (I can't make her male, I can't make her younger...) and her good buddy Murdoch's unflattering press which was sure to rally women to come out and support Hillary.

I could be wrong but I don't think so. And if Clinton is as smart as they say he is why wouldn't he strike a deal with Hillary's VP and have him run and help her cinch the nomination. I would have. Plus, I think the DLC Clinton gang would really like to pull one over on the progressives and grassroot supporters who they have shown such disdain for.

On Edit: Of course, Clinton could just be playing Edwards for a fool, knowing that Edwards like Clinton would do anything to get in or close to the Whitehouse (VP).
