Hillary Clinton Playing Politics Like a Republican

How long might it take for liberal Democrats to support Hillary Clinton if hell were to freeze over and she became the Democratic nominee?  After today it will be longer than yesterday.  There just is no end to the horse-rot that comes from Hillary Clinton or her campaign as she grasps for anything she can grab in her zeal to be president.

This morning, George Stephanopoulos began his televised interview with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton by asking if she could name a single economist who supported her plan for a gas-tax suspension.

Mrs. Clinton did not. “I’m not going to put in my lot with economists,” she said on the ABC program “This Week.” A few moments later, she added, “Elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantages the vast majority of Americans.”

But like every other candidate, Mrs. Clinton has a team of economists behind her policy positions. Is she dismissing their work? And in the coming weeks, how far will she take her anti-elitist argument? After all, the race will likely end up in the hands of the superdelegates — many of whom are, by definition, the Democratic Party elite.

Hillary is even talking like President Bush and uttered the small-minded phrase “are they with us or against us’ in a speech about the oil problem in America. 

Clinton sent out a mailer this weekend attacking Obama on guns.  There is no level that she will not stoop in a Democratic primary to snatch a few votes.
