The field of Democratic candidates for ’08 is looking really strange these days. We have Joe Biden wooing the GOP (see post below) and now a report that Obama, another likely ’08 candidate was Hillary’s turf, doing a little kiss up job, while courting Democratic donors.
Speaking to reporters last night after those meetings and a speech to a charity dinner, Mr. Obama called Mrs. Clinton a friend and ally and said that if he decided to run for president, it would not be based on his assessment of her.
“I think she is tough, I think she is disciplined, I think she is smart, and I’m not one of those people who believe she can’t win,” Mr. Obama said. “I recognize it’s fun to set these things up as a contest between the two of us. I would say half my colleagues in the Senate think they’re going to be the next president.”
Obama might take a moment to recogonize that at least some of his colleagues in the Senate other than Hillary actually have the experience to be president. In a nutshell there’s one Senator, who’s got the kind of experience America needs to clean up the mess made by BushCo — John Kerry. The rest are wannabe’s…
Obama’s too green. Hillary’s to polarizing and not so thrifty. Biden’s to centrist with an odd sense of humor. Bayh is too concerned about an ideological agenda. After 8 years of Bush, nothing but the Real Deal can set this country straight.
