Clinton Campaign Tactics

Obama is right to wonder who he is campaigning against. For Bill Clinton to sink to lowball racial profiling when the hopes of a nation are rising is the cruelest joke of this campaign. And it backfires sharply on the Clintons.

Clearly, Bill doesn’t have enough to do. At least when he was president, the job kept his enormous energies engaged. Well, with a few exceptions, that is. But Bill’s behavior now reflects very badly on Hillary. Either she is directing him (very bad) or she has no control over what he does (most likely and equally bad).

Meanwhile, Obama represents real hope for a future we can all be proud of. He inspires me, a white grandmother, to write and care about politics. He stirs the imagination of a whole young generation. How wonderful is that!
