bill does it again

Posted on April 17, 2008


Cage up your big dog Bill, Hillary.

He is out there on the trail, wreaking havoc on your campaign once again.

As if resurrecting the embarrassing Bosnia debacle and making Hillary seem forgetful and old last week was not enough, he has gone and done it again, this time alienating a huge swath of the electorate, the younger voters.

Bill told an audience in Quakertown, Pennsylvania that older folks vote for Hillary as they are wise enough to see through Barack Obama’s rhetoric.

Bill might think older folks will appreciate that compliment, but he has just gone and alienated an important demographic group, the vocal younger voters that have been flocking decisively towards Obama. Looks like Hillary won’t be winning them over any time soon, especially after Bill’s stereotyping, which is bordering on insulting towards younger voters.

“I think there is a big reason there’s an age difference in a lot of these polls,” he said. “Because once you’ve reached a certain age, you won’t sit there and listen to somebody tell you there’s really no difference between what happened in the Bush years and the Clinton years; that there’s not much difference in how small-town Pennsylvania fared when I was president, and in this decade.”

Sounds like Bill is mad that Obama thinks his presidency was similar Bush’s. Bill, please remember that this election is not about you, it is about Hillary.

But how does Bill explain the fact that the better-educated are more favorable towards Obama than his wife?

Bill has really overreached this time. Maybe he really does not want to be First Laddie. But it is still such a pity to see the goodwill and legacy of the Clinton presidency tarnished with his careless words and actions throughout this campaign. And the worst thing is, he is becoming no help but a hindrance to Hillary.

Hillary has shown herself more than capable of handling whatever has been thrown at her.

Hillary, it’s time to tell your husband to shut up and let you handle this.
