These comments made by Hillary Clinton have forever changed my opinion of her and not for the better:
"I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say. He's never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002," Clinton told reporters on her plane en route to Fort Worth from San Antonio.
She has now given McCain a sound bite that will follow Obama the rest of this election. Can she really claim she has that much more experience than Obama? She is in a unique position, with a unique perspective as the former first lady...but counting her husband's experience as her own is a bit of a stretch. To her credit, the fear mongering ad and negative campaigning has resulted in a much needed win...last night's Ohio , Texas & Rhode Island primaries. Apparently down and dirty politics as usual work with some of my fellow Democrats.
Obama's message of hope and change doesn't play well into the tactics used by Senator Clinton...so what's a positive candidate such as Obama to do?
I like Barack Obama because he is a breath of fresh air...and not the usual politician or Washington insider. I like how he's willing to play fair and stay above the nastiness of Washington DC. But alas, it may be time to take the gloves off Senator Obama. It seems to have worked for Senator Clinton. Maybe Americans aren't so tired of politics as usual after-all....and need to see a different side to you. I hate to say it, but maybe it's time to come out swinging....
