Tied Up in Knots

In surfing the Web, the howler came across a few items of special interest. The first was a quote from Sarah Palin's interview with ABC's Charlie Gibson. Palin pointed out the obvious. Right about now, Obama is hating life and the day he didn't choose Hillary to be his running mate.
"I think he's regretting not picking her now, I do. What, what determination, and grit, and even grace through some tough shots that were fired her way -- she handled those well," the Alaska governor told Charles Gibson in her third and final exclusive interview with ABC News.
It's obvious Palin and McCain are going after Hillary supporters; and Obama's snub of Hillary may cost him the election.

"The women of America aren't finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all," Palin said as she accepted McCain's invitation to join the 2008 Republican ticket, referring to a line made famous in Clinton's concession to Obama.


In her June speech ending her historic campaign, Clinton invoked the suffragists who fought for women's right to vote and civil rights leaders who fought on behalf of equal rights for African-Americans as she insisted, "The path will be a little easier next time ... that has always been the history of progress.

"Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling, thanks to you it's got about 18 million cracks in it and the light is shining through like never before," she said.
It's that precious glass ceiling that has the howler tied up in knots; although as Election Day draws closer, she's starting to drink the Obama kool aid and tuning in to Olby and Matthews for re-education.

Meanwhile, the second item of interest is a day's old item from News Day about Bill and Barry's meeting on Thursday to chat about the state of affairs.

It looks as if it's finally dawned on Obama that without Hillary and Bill, he can't win. Hell, even Biden admits that Obama blew it. And in that vein, Politico writes a great post with some really good stuff about what Bill might've told Obama to save the day.

Let's hope Obama listens. Top of the item, publicly humble yourself and apologize to the Clintons and their 18 million supporters.

You can bet Obama's listening, HL. The problem Democrats get ourselves into is always trusting that the electorate "is smarter than that." I always ask, "Smarter than what?" These are many of the same folks who voted for Dubya twice, so why assume or take anything for granted. The Republicans assume the electorate is NOT "smarter than that," and therefore nominated Sarah, hoping she will propel McCain through the glass ceiling that Hillary cracked. So, at best, McCain and the Republicans are using Sarah as a tool. Do we really need a tool a heartbeat away from the presidency?
