If you haven’t been paying attention, here’s a recap of Hillary Clinton’s actions over the past few days.

She started off praising Obama in a debate, saying “it’s an absolute honor to be on stage with Barack Obama”.

Then on Saturday, she feigned anger at an Obama mailer distributed through Ohio…“Shame on you Barack Obama. It is time you ran a campaign consistent with your messages in public. Thats what i expect from you. meet me in Ohio. lets have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign.”…”Enough with the speeches and the big rallies and then using tactics that are right out of Karl Rove’s playbook.”

The issue is an Obama mailer passed out in Ohio describing Hillary’s position on NAFTA. Bill passed it and Hillary was all about it until this campaign and its an issue she is getting killed on in Ohio. The reason why the anger was obviously fake is because the Mailer has been out for a few weeks now. There is no doubt she was already well aware of the thing, but just happened to get angry about it now.

This an outstanding, concise (not short, it’s a complicated issue) writeup explaining the chain of events. Included as well is a tremendous analogy to the Bush Campaign’s handling the issue of his military service / Dan Rather-Gate in the 2004 election.

Later that day she compared Obama to Bush on the basis that Bush ran on Change in 2000. Making the argument that electing Obama would result in the same type of disaster that Bush ended up as. Its the type of inane analogy that only a Clinton supporter* would be dumb enough to fall for.

The next day, she mocked Obama, his supporters…and Hope…”Now I could just stand up here and say..lets just get everybody together…lets get unified..the sky will open…the light will come down…celestial quires will be signing…and everyone will know we should do the right thing, and the world will be perfect”

stupid cunt. she should just cry on camera again. everyone fell for it the first time.

Really tho, there is nothing she can do. She is completely and totally fucked and she knows it.

After losing 11 straight primaries and entering “Huckabian” ** territory with regard to realistically obtaining enough delegates to win the candidacy, she’s also now down to Obama nationally 51%-39% and 54%-38% in the USA Today / Gallup and New York Times / CBSNEWS polls, respectively.

The Phony Part:

The Re-imagining of Hillary Clinton

Clinton may truly believe she has dedicated her life to working for poor families and children, but her actions speak for themselves:

She freely chose to work for Wal-Mart at a time when that company was profiting by denying health insurance to its low-wage, employees. She freely chose to put her intellect and legal skills at the service of banks and major corporations at the Rose Law Firm. She freely chose to remain silent, if not complicit, when her husband’s administration was making life worse for poor families and children.

Unlike thousands in her generation who sought to organize among the poor to fulfill Dr. King’s legacy, or who joined Cesar Chavez working for economic justice for farm workers, or who worked to unionize low-income women, or who worked for legal services or in civil rights law firms, Hillary Clinton pursued a corporate path.

That was certainly her right. But having taken that path, Senator Clinton has no right to sell an imaginary version of herself as having dedicated her life toward working for poor people.

For Hillary Clinton, that was the road not taken.
