She’s waving Osama around in her newest ad (Huffington Post):
Still, there might be something to the rumors that tomorrow’s primary is expected to be a tight contest, and the clearest sign that the Clinton campaign is taking that seriously is that they’ve released a new thirty-second ad called “Kitchen,” which “detail[s] how tough the job of President is…asking voters who they think is ready to step in and handle it.” And, hey! Look who makes a cameo appearance! None other than stock footage of Osama bin Laden, presumably on loan from the defunct Giuliani campaign.
She’s showing herself at her hackish, hypocritical best in her lame criticisms of Obama (Huffington Post):
Sen. Hillary Clinton fired back at her opponent over the comment, while tying it in to her general critique that Obama cannot fight hard enough to win the election. Ben Smith reports:
“We need a nominee who will take on John McCain, not cheer on John McCain, and I will be that nominee,” she said.
Of course, Clinton had a similar moment of praise for John McCain’s experience earlier this campaign season:
“I have a lifetime of experience I will bring to the White House. I know Senator McCain [the presumptive Republican nominee] has a lifetime of experience he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he made in 2002.”
Obama’s comment was idiotic for strategic reasons. He should be Linking Bush and McCain! That said, Hillary’s response is beyond laughable. She’s criticizing Barack for the same sort of gaff she made. Only hers was far, far worse. She actually implied McCain would be better than a potential Democratic nominee.
Which just sums up her campaign to ignore reality and win at all costs. Hillary Clinton repeatedly compares Obama to Bush, when she really ought to look in the damn mirror.
