      I'll bet it helps her campaign.  About time she took on Obama for his dishonest, nasty mailers.

        Going negative hasn't helped her one bit.  In fact, it's arguable that's why she lost this race.

        Ever since they went negative on Obama back in December(pre-Iowa), it's resulted in nothing more than a 3 month slide in the polls, an 11 state losing streak and a failure to put Obama away on February 5th.

        How is that going to change now?

        People are tired of these kinds of attacks and her doing this simply plays into Obama's call for a new politics.  Just like every time she mentions her 35 years of experience, she reinforces the Obama meme that we can't change Washington with the same people who have been there for the last 2 or 3 decades.

        Sorry.  When you start to reflect on why she lost, maybe you'll realize that she should have ran a better campaign; she should have offered a positive vision for America and not an ad nauseum enumeration of her resume; she should have taken the high road instead of taking this campaign straight into the gutter.

        There will be a lot of "should of, could of, would of's" after it's all said and done(meaning, when she fails to win both OH and TX by large enough margins to justify continuing the race)and the decision to continue to go negative on Barack(are you even aware of how the "Xerox" or "slumlord" comments went over?) will be on of those.

    •  She's had quite a few of those (0+ / 0-)
