    and while I disagree with his characterization of McCain, he won't be on the ballot in November either. Neither will James Carville or Tony McPeak or Samantha Power. They are irrelevant as to my decision making.

    I want to die like my grandfather, peacefully in my sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    •  I'm sorry, but that's sounding a bit naive (2+ / 0-)

      Hillary has been taking advice from her advisors for awhile, now.  Her stances tend to change with the wind on even major issues.

      Bill campaigns directly for her - good cop vs. bad cop is an old tactic.

      She has enough history to make her prior comments about McCain vs. Obama more than minor misspeaks.

      It's all part of a pattern that has played out repeatedly - with interchangeable players - throughout their Plan B.  One person says objectionable item A, another softens the impact . . . after the meme is floated for a bit.  Later, it resurfaces again.

      Regardless of her being a Democratic Senator, we can criticize her campaign as representing her when issues beyond anomalies occur.

      "So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way."
