Obama: The Clinton Factor

I wasn’t always sold on the theory that the Clinton’s have been scheming to undermine Obama’s presidential bid. But now I ain’t so sure. Like Aravosis posted, a pattern has developed, and it’s getting weirder the closer we get to the convention

“…I am not a racist. I’ve never made a racist comment and I never attacked him [Obama] personally.”

The interviewer didn’t ask about racism. Clinton offered it himself. Just like Geraldine Ferarro did during Hillary’s campaign. Just like John McCain did a week before Clinton’s remark. Then it was announced Hillary would be on the ballot in Denver.

To honor and celebrate these voices and votes, both Senator Obama’s and Senator Clinton’s names will be placed in nomination.

Clinton could have conceded long ago, but she never has, she only suspended her campaign. The bottom line is, this doesn’t show unity, it simply undermines Obama. He does not have Bill and Hillary’s full support. Then Bill gave a shout out to McCain.

“John McCain has the best record of any Republican running for president on the energy issue and on climate change.” He added, “I’m very encouraged about where the presidential rhetoric is in this campaign.”

Now there’s this weird story.

The Scranton, Pennsylvania, Times-Tribune reports that on Monday, the top economic adviser for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Carly Fiorina, met with Tony Rodham — the younger brother of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY…

It should be an interesting convention. The Clinton’s support of Obama has been lukewarm at best. Add that to Hillary’s name on the ballot at the convention and Lieberman’s speaking at the GOP convention, the man who was the dem VP candidate in 2000, and what you have is a splintered and dysfunctional looking democratic convention.

What do you do? Obama can’t snub the Clinton’s, he had to give them a platform, and it looks like the Clinton’s are going to use it… to PROMOTE THE CLINTONS.
