Hillary Clinton is too solidly positioned in the hearts and minds of voters for the Obama campaign to profit by ignoring or dismissing her. And to be clear, I never wanted her to be offered the Vice Presidency.
To start, thank God Obama is "drifting towards the center" because, um, that's where the majority of voters are.
The notion that it's okay to espouse positions you may or may not believe in order to be nominated and then "adjust" those positions to others you may or may not believe in order to get elected is what's been done for too fucking long in this country.
back when he was criticizing George Bush. Then he got his anti-Clinton obsession and talked of nothing else for what seemed like an eternity. Then he fell in love with Obama and love, as any songwriter will tell you, is blind.
Obama flip-flopped on campaign finance, supported the FISA bill, started wearing flag lapel pins, started ending speeches with "may God continue to bless the United States of America", and disowned Jeremiah Wright soon after saying that such an act would be akin to disowning his own grandmother.
