OBAMA CLINTON FEUD ON CNN OVER YOUTUBE DEBATE QUESTION
(edit… oops. this is a pro-Hillary vid. well, now you know how “fair and balanced” we is over at the prisonship.)
i need to remind myself that it is way, way, way too early to be prognosticating, but…
i am very impressed by obama’s making hay from the youtube debate snafu. hillary’s staff clearly prompted her to jump on any imaginable difference of opinion between her and her adversary, and to paint it as a question of experience versus untested idealism. if this has not quite bitten her in the ass, it has shown that a) obama is ready, willing, and capable of coming back on her, and b) that she is capable of making mistakes.
maybe this excites me because it’s showing a side of obama that i for one needed to see before i could get too riled up. i don’t know how much you buy into the idea that he’s attempting a Reagan-style ‘insurgency for change,’ but it makes me think… maybe if he is as charismatic as he seems, and maybe if our demographic were actually to take it to the polls… well, maybe we could stop another four years of clintonian circle jerk?
