Clinton and Obama Should Target McCain, Not Each Other

The never-ending fight for the Democratic nomination has me feeling like Courtney, the bitchy blonde cheerleader from the movie Bring It On. In a moment of complete frustration at the inability of the cheerleaders to choose someone to replace an injured squad member Courtney shouts “Let’s cut the crap and pick somebody now!”

Now, I know that kind of plea is not going to work with the Democrats particularly since Hillary Clinton announced that she is staying in the race until the Democratic National Convention in August. That means five more months of attacks and counterattacks between Clinton and Barack Obama, the frontrunner for the nomination

The stakes are far too high to allow this opportunity to put a Democrat in the White House to be pissed away in an orgy of party infighting.

I say let’s end the Hatfields and McCoys type feud among Democrats and immediately aim all of our firepower at John McCain.

McCain has gotten more than a free ride from the traditional media who seem more interested in being invited to the Republican nominee’s next cookout than reporting on the numerous scandals surrounding his campaign.

We should help to remind them and voters of what a crock McCain’s manufactured image as a “straight talker” really is.

When pundits were beginning to write obituaries for his campaign McCain applied for public financing to keep his floundering campaign afloat. With public campaign financing comes spending limits, but based on his latest finance report McCain has violated the campaign spending limits.

Let’s also not forget the story of the leggy blonde lobbyist who may have had a questionable relationship with McCain, the legion of lobbyists playing key roles in McCain’s campaign and let’s not forget McCain saying that spending 100 years in Iraq would be “fine with me.”

And McCain’s record on GLBT issues has been abysmal.

The Democratic contest is looking like nothing short of an intervention from Dr. Phil can get Clinton to see the reality that her campaign is over. It is up to the grassroots Democrats to keep our eyes on the prize of winning back the White House.

    “And the notion that somehow it’s cute or amusing, or a useful diversion, I think, is something that all of us have to recognize is just not the case. We all have First Amendment rights. And I am a constitutional lawyer and strongly believe in free speech, but as a culture, we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding our kids,”

    I blame the Borg Queen.

    She’s behind in the popular vote, the delegate count and she would have to win 71% of the remaining 9 races to pull ahead of Barack. An impossibility.

    Plus, her campaign is $8.9 million in the hole, as donor ca$h is drying up faster than her skin.

    She needs to drop out and look for ego gratification elsewhere.

    Or better still, the Borg Queen has a day job: she the U.S. Senator from New York. Go back to Washington and do the job the voters elected her to do.

    Hillary is not rocky – she has rocks in her friggin head. She needs to drop OUT. Cop a clue, switch to another drug besides for power. I have said on From the Left and will say it here too, if she thinks she is scoring one for womenkind – she is dead ass wrong..she would be scoring one, for the first lady club…period.

    Myself – i want more than just the countries daughters knowing they can be anything they want , at this point in time. Besides obviously it is about being a former first lady first….i am steamed.

    I want all the children of this country , of every color, eithnicity and socio economic situation to know by virture of Obama WINNING that they can be anything they want – they have a future.

    Obama is running a great campaign..Hillary is destroying or trying really hard to destroy the dimocratic party. And damn her for that.

    excuse me i am so pissed i just found out and posted on Kennedy now supporting a non inclusive ENDA sorry to be off topic.
