I believe TOE SUCKER is trying to get tricky, but it won't work
The TOE SUCKER is trying to influence Dem voters with his phony facts and opinions. You have to read between the lines, but it is very transparent. Here he is decrying Hillary's attack on Obama about his well known adolescent drug use. I can spot sneaky tricks when I see them, and he is being very slick with this article. Tell me, what Repub candidate WILL NOT USE OBAMA'S drug use in the general election? Don't get me wrong now, to me its no factor, but you know the right wing swiftboat machine will go crazy with it.

Is that why he is attacking Hillary? And why no mention of Edwards? Maybe they want Obama to win the primary for that very reason. I personally like all of our candidates, so I will vote for whoever wins the primary. But it looks to me that they are somewhat subtly trying to set up the matchup they want. Like I said Obama's past makes no difference to me, and I will support him vigorously if he wins the primary, but can you imagine how they will spin this and attack him. What Hillary's Camp did was wrong, but it is nothing compared to what those crazy conservatives will do. They better be careful of what they wish for, they might be in for a big surprise.
Why are the Wheels Coming Off the Clinton Bandwagon?
By Dick Morris and Eileen McGann
In Iowa and New Hampshire the first two tests for the presidential nominating process Hillary Clinton is faltering badly.,2933,316905,00.html


In their campaign themes, Hillary stresses her experience while Obama focuses on the need for change. Hillary seems determined to appropriate her husbands record, while Obama mocks the idea of going back to an alternation of the Bushes and the Clintons, a latter day American Hatfields and McCoys.

Now, in desperation, Hillary and her minions are attacking Obama with shots that will only arouse voter sympathy for him and backlash against her. Hillary asks, When did running for president become a qualification to be president? and her aides distribute evidence that Obama wanted to run for president in kindergarten to defuse the attack that Hillary and Bill have always planned on a regal, dynastic succession. More recently, a top Hillary campaign aide spoke of the need to investigate Obamas drug use in high school where he has admitted to using cocaine.

None of these shots are going to knock anybody out or even down, but Hillary keeps up the pattern of personal, irrelevant negative attacks.

The conclusion is obvious: neither Hillary nor her staff know how to campaign. After the Clinton re-election in 1996, they have never been tested in a competitive race. When Giuliani dropped out of the New York State Senate race and the young Congressman Rick Lazio had to enter at the last minute to try to stop Hillarys bid, the conclusion was pre-ordained. Hillarys re-election was a cakewalk against a totally under funded opponent. She doesnt know how to win.

Hillarys experience has been limited to the insider back biting of Washington where she is an expert at using her secret police a small army of private detectives to unearth negatives about her or Bills opponents. (Even former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young recently admitted that Hillary ran the effort to discredit women who might come forward and accuse Clinton of misconduct.) But, when it comes to campaigning, advertising and winning an election, these folks and this candidate dont have a clue.
