    ....Bill Clinton told a Fort Thompson, SD audience, he'd "never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully just for running." He picked apart the "frantic effort to push her out" of the race, saying no one asked Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson or Gary Hart to end their presidential campaigns early. He defended his wife in the dustup over her comments about Robert F. Kennedy's assassination. "That really made my blood boil," he said.

    "A full-blooded American." That's how 24-year-old Josh Fry of West Virginia described his preference for John McCain over Barack Obama. His feelings aren't racist, he explained. He would just be more comfortable with "someone who is a full-blooded American as president." Whether Fry was referring to McCain's military service or Obama's Kenyan father isn't clear, but he may have hit upon something essential in this presidential race. Full-bloodedness is an old coin that's gaining currency in the new American realm. Meaning: Politics may no longer be so much about race and gender as about heritage, core values, and made-in-America. Just...

    This is why the Obamarama is so disheartening. When a Black REP comes down the pike he or she is demeaned by the very liberals who scream for equality and equal representation for all. Or worse, they are painted with the sell out or “Uncle Tom” (thanks Spike Lee) brush. I was still in college during the shameless Clarence Thomas hearings but even then (in my more liberal leaning days) I saw them for the “modern day lynching” that they were. People think it funny that Lt. Gov. Michael Steele has to dodge Oreo cookies hurled his way at debates....

    (2008-03-27) — Sen. Barack Obama, the Democrat presidential front runner, today reiterated his intention to stand by his controversial pastor despite his presidential rival’s remarks that she would have left the church where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright preached racially-charged, anti-American messages. “I could no more disown my hateful, racist, self-aggrandizing, crazy uncle of a pastor,” said Sen. Obama, “than Hillary Clinton could quit her deceitful, adulterous, self-aggrandizing husband. But if a purging must happen to unite this divided party, I say to my esteemed opponent, ‘You first, Hillary. You first.’” Sen. Clinton said this week that she would have quit...

    The Clinton campaign has cited newspaper accounts, including one in The Washington Post, to bolster the senator's claim that her now-famous March 1996 trip to Bosnia was the first visit to a "war zone" by a first lady since World War II. She is overlooking a trip to Saigon by Pat Nixon at the height of the Vietnam War as well as a trip by Barbara Bush to Saudi Arabia two months before the Persian Gulf War began. THE FACTS Just because something has appeared in a newspaper does not mean that is entirely accurate. The Clinton camp has circulated...

    I just had this scary, but not illogical, thought. (Actually I had it in 1996, but dismissed it as pure fantasy.) If Hillary! wins the Presidential Election in November, and then manages to get Re-Elected in 2012 to another 4 year term, Chelsea, who is now 28, will be 36, and could run for the presidency for up to another 8 years of the KKKlintoons in the White House. Don't say, "It'll never happen!" Whith the KKKlintoons, "It could happen!"......NEVER underestimate the KKKLINTOONS...........

    Has Hil chilled Bill? Has she muzzled the Big Dog? Has Bubba been banished? Yes, yes and yes. And the result was win, win, win. Add the case of the missing husband to the list of reasons why Hillary Clinton saved her political skin Tuesday. He was mostly off the radar for the past week and was nowhere to be seen during her pitch-perfect victory speech that celebrated triumphs in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island. Anyone who thinks all that wasn't planned doesn't follow the orchestrated stagecraft of the Clintons. The former President is a double-edged sword and the subject...

    January 31, 2008 9:26 AM Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday. In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions 'cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren." At a time that the nation is worried about a recession is that really the characterization his wife would want him making? "Slow down our economy"? I don't really think there's much debate...

    Democrats inside and outside the Clinton campaign on Sunday debated and in some cases bemoaned the degree to which former President Bill Clinton’s criticism of Senator Barack Obama last week had inflicted lasting damage on his wife’s presidential candidacy. “I think his harsh style hurt Senator Clinton — it polarized the campaign and polarized the electorate, and it also made it harder for Senator Clinton’s positive message to break through,” said Celinda Lake, a Democratic strategist and pollster who is not affiliated with any of the candidates. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign team, seeking to readjust after her lopsided defeat...

    January 26, 2008 8:18 PM Said Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in '84 and '88. Jackson ran a good campaign. And Obama ran a good campaign here." This was in response to a question about Obama saying it "took two people to beat him." Jackson had not been mentioned. Boy, I can't understand why anyone would think the Clintons are running a race-baiting campaign to paint Obama as "the black candidate."

    ..........In 1980, having unwisely raised state motor vehicle taxes, the youngest-ever-elected governor of Arkansas lost to a happy-go-lucky creationist more in tune with local Southern sentiment. "When the news came in he was really very upset, in tears" recalled his friend Jim Blair. A babysitter coming to the mansion found him on the floor, kicking, screaming, and bawling like a baby.

    "...Obama's campaign said it was unbecoming for a former commander-in-chief to be engaging in harsh attacks against a fellow Democrat and some party figures have advised Bill Clinton to tone down his words or risk tarnishing his presidential legacy. "I think it's not presidential, it's not in keeping with the image of a former president, and I'm frankly surprised that he is taking this approach," said former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, who has endorsed Obama. "I think it is important for all of us to participate in a way that raises the level of debate and begins to focus...

    Bill Clinton is not black. It seems odd that I would have to make that statement; I have nothing against Bill Clinton, but I do have something against those who, for whatever reason, have convinced themselves that Clinton is not only black, but was also, "The First Black President." Let's ponder this, shall we? Those people who publicly state that Bill Clinton was the first black president are saying that Bill Clinton has shared in the black experience. They are saying that members of Bill Clinton's family came over on slave ships with Kunta Kinte. Bill Clinton rode on the...

    The Politico notes that Bill Clinton has fallen back on Bubbalistic campaigning in Iowa. The homespun wisdom of the former Rhodes scholar comes along with his wife's various regional accents, but as Ben Smith notes, usually much farther away from the press: Before he was a silver-haired elder statesman, ex-president, and globe-trotting do-gooder, Bill Clinton was Bubba. And out in rural Western Iowa, Bubba is back. ... While his speech differed little from the one he gives in upscale audiences, his presence there indicates both the potential his wife’s campaign sees in the West and the fact that the former...

    Some 300 people gathered on Tuesday night at the Brentwood home of CAA's David O'Connor and his wife, Lona Williams, anxious to see the guest of honor, Bill Clinton. Then the power went out --- in the entire neighborhood --- putting this Hillary Clinton fund-raiser into near total darkness. The only light came from candles and some battery operated lanterns, which were shined on Clinton when he spoke in the backyard pool area. That helped, but it was still hard to see guests. And with no electricity, and therefore no microphone, it wasn't always easy to hear, according to a...
