Keith Olbermann says it all…

I have to admit that I’ve been stewing for a few days now regarding the remaining days before Tuesday’s primaries and the aftermath of Clinton’s negative tactics giving her some ground in those very important States. As others have noted though, not much has changed in the numbers but Clinton is continuing down the same path.

What is most shocking to me is how Clinton is aligning herself with John McCain as just as qualified as she is on National Security. The only thing Clinton has on Obama is some time in the Senate and her years as first Lady. Does this mean that Laura Bush is more qualified than Obama on foreign policy? I think it’s a valid question. Clinton is smart to keep using this, it’s working but at the same time, it’s alienating many in the Democratic Party who don’t appreciate the scare tactics that we’ve come accustomed to from Karl Rove. Oh and before you get yourself in a frenzy over that, today one of Clinton’s aids compared Obama to Kenneth Starr. Yes, you read that right.

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said Obama’s statement that he plans to be more critical of Clinton’s record is reminiscent of the attacks the Clintons endured during the investigations in the 1990s.

“After a campaign in which many of the questions that voters had in the closing days centered on concerns that they had over his state of preparedness to be commander in chief and steward of the economy, he has chosen instead of addressing those issues to attack Senator Clinton,” Wolfson told reporters in a conference call. “I for one do not believe that imitating Ken Starr is the way to win a Democratic primary election for president.”

Keith Olbermann said it all for me tonight and I had to share because it made me feel a bit better to know that someone was noticing the problem with Clinton’s current strategy. Here is part one and part two of Keith’s take on the whole Clinton/Obama pie fight that I stole from a diary at The Daily Obama Kos.

My blogging here is not an endorsement of any other opinion but my own. I'm no longer new to blogging, I've been writing locally and nationally since 2007 starting here at the Liberal OC. I was born in New York and grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and currently live in Aliso Viejo. I graduated from Smith College with a B.A. in English and Film and eventually may go back to school, but I'm still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Until then, I work and write and try to do something useful here in the OC by using the word to point out the things that make me frustrated. It's a daily struggle. Issues that peak my interest the most are environmental (yes, I don't just 'believe" in climate change, I listen to all those whacky scientists), gender and body issues (women deserve equal pay, I'm a feminist too, crazy) to the continuing widening economic gap we are not enjoying here in the US (which ties to education, stagnant wages and debt). So many issues, but those are the top three right now. I am an unabashed corgi lover, nerd and all around strange girl. I am lucky enough to be raising a wonderful daughter as well and enjoying being unmarried.
