Robert Parry: Democrats, the Truth Still Matters!

You have helped so many see the ugly, ugly truth about the Clintons. They are their own primary benefactors of any and virtually all actions they undertake. Sadly, that fact is demoralizing our country.

I supported Bill Clinton in two elections. I defended his wife from the vicious right wing attacks. I defended Clinton during the impeachment witch hunt that blinded our country to the danger waiting for us on December 12, 2000. And now, because it was so bitterly politicized in 1998, the only tool we have left to remove the present Bush War Criminal Administration is broken.

The self-serving nature of the Clintons was carefully obscured from many supporters in the 1990's. The GOP recognized that agenda right away, because it's reflective of the GOP's own ideological mindset. It's much easier to hate the traits seen in others that are also within one's self.

So, in that sense, the GOP was keenly aware, and early, of the Clintons' motives.

Sadly, the long-time Clinton supporters are the last to see it or much less, accept it. It's too painful to face betrayal by someone you trusted and for a time had great affection.

The toughest part about all of this is the sense of betrayal of our country. For what we could have had. And now, for what we have lost.

Senator Clinton is no fool. She knows she will not be the Democratic nominee in 2008. Revenge and spite will now play out in her campaign's attacks against Obama, a candidate who has finally awakened this country since the tragedies of the 1960's. He has proved himself to be one of the very few visionaries who come along once in a lifetime.

For Hillary Clinton's campaigns in 2008 (now aimed to destroy Obama) and 2012 for the presidency against a weakened McCain/unknown, the agenda is stunningly clear.

And for now, she is willing to demoralize and destroy this country's long path to recovery and the Democratic Party itself, to do it.
