Considering the raging Hillary-hating asshole that Olbermann has become in this primary process I would take everything that comes up on his show with a grain of salt until it was confirmed by a source without a bias.
Keith has become O'Reilly, the truth may hurt but its still the truth.
Well it isn't up to you or me to decide when Clinton starts the healing process with her supporters.
And I didn't see a lack of graciousness on her part, she just didn't concede which is what everyone else wanted her to do and that seems to be the rub.
Well I don't have a crystal ball but I doubt this goes on longer than a week. Clinton knows that she can't drag this on indefinitely unless she is willing to go with the nuclear option of taking it to the convention (which I do not think she plans to do). That is why I am not understanding the hysteria since I believe by this time next week it will all be over.
I don't know but she has cache and I am sure she wants something before she concedes, the question is how long will it take for her and Obama to hammer out just what that will be. It could be anything from VP consideration to adopting her healthcare plan.
I'm sure Richardson and Edwards made overtures before giving their endorsement too. We all need to remember that this is still politics and no one gets something for nothing in this business.
Never make assumptions.
I was for Joe Biden when this circus first started.
I was just an interested spectator after he dropped out, I thought Clinton would make the better presidential candidate of the two left remaining and I have found some of the condemnation thrown her way to be a bit out of hand which made me defend her when I saw fit.
There seems to be a desire on the part of some Obama supporters to "purge" all things Clinton from the Party and that bothers me greatly.
Considering how hungry the MSM is for controversy and how much they love to bash Clinton (I'm looking at you MSNBC) I would have to say that you are so wrong it isn't even funny.
In what dimension would CNN, FOX, MSNBC, et. al, not be in a feeding frenzy with a constant Hillary watch if it looked like she was going to take this to the convention? It sure as hell wouldn't be the one we all live in.
I know most Obama supporters would like to think that she is going to soon be irrelevant but that is just wishful thinking I;m afraid.
All the hand wringing is just so ridiculous. This thing ended last night (with a win for Clinton to boot!) yet everyone wanted her to put on a pep rally for Obama. That is unrealistic.
Considering how close this thing was its perfectly natural that Clinton would use her leverage to get certain guarantees out of Obama and the Party.
She isn't John Edwards, she is the one with the other half of the Democratic Party's votes so let her and Obama hash things out and spare yourselves all the unnecessary agita.
Since the Clinton campaign has stated repeatedly that she wouldn't be conceding tonight I am finding it really curious why everyone (especially the talking heads in the MSM) are acting like this was some big deal. She was gracious in heaping praise on Obama but since she had no plans on conceding it should have been no surprise that she didn't congratulate him on winning the nomination.
It seems like the MSM is so desperate not to lose the Obama vs Clinton story that they are grasping for any snippet to blow up into some sort of controversy.
But until you stop pulling the meme that she is raising the "specter of her opponents assassination" out of either thin air or your ass (take your pick) then i am going to have stand by my assertion that you are just as big a lunatic as anyone at NoQuarter or Hillaryis44.
You are arguing a point that was never made by anyone but you and the throngs of weak-kneed Obama sycophants who see attacks in every word that is uttered about him or his campaign.
But she wasn't talking about her opponents assassination! And I find it funny that you mention the wackjobs at Hillaryis44 and NoQuarter while totally making up a scenario. You are just as bad as the worst of that lot.
But she wasn't talking about her opponents assassination? ANd I find it funny that you mention the wackjobs at Hillaryis44 and NoQuarter while totally making up a scenario. You are just as bad as the worst of that lot.
I am totally sickened by this entire episode and not for the reasons that the majority of shrieking idiots are so up in arms.
I am dismayed by the sheer stupidity of this country, its new media and the political process.
What Clinton said wasn't wrong or even inartful and anyone with a minimal grasp of history and an IQ greater than a rock would have known exactly what was meant by the statement and not batted an eyelash.
But that would be asking too much of the fastfood media and puddle deep citizens of this country I guess.
I'm sorry but in what universe is Sebelius charismatic? In her response to the State of the Union it looked like someone propped a corpse up in a chair and played a recording.
She is dreadfully uncharismatic.
