As usual the media types have completely missed the point of the recent Hillary and Obama dust-up. One must understand that regardless of your personal beliefs about the Clintons, they deserve some credit for strategy. They most definitely play chess not checkers.
The Hillary camp’s response to David Geffen’s comments were not primarily designed to get Obama into the mud. That’s just a happy secondary aspect. The primary goal is to make Bill and Hillary’s past off limits. Their goal is to make it verboten to even go there. Even disregarding the strong evidence of their wrong doing in many areas, the facts are bad enough.
Those last minute pardons? Can’t talk about them. Remember it was Hillary’s brother, not a relative of Bill, who was trying to sell pardons. Where would he have ever gotten the idea that he had the power to pull this off? Can’t talk about it.
That her husband has been convicted for lying under oath and was disbarred? Can’t talk about it. That he can’t even meet the moral requirement to be an attorney? (not the highest bar ever set) Can’t talk about it.
That Hillary is on record laying the ground work for the “nuts and sluts” Monica defense? Something she has never explained? Can’t talk about it. How those pesky billing records “just showed up one day” in one of the most secure buildings in the world? Can’t talk about it. That perhaps these two are truly morally deficient, as even their ‘friends” freely admit? Can’t talk about it.
The list of 'can’t talk about it' subjects is pretty dang long. Long enough that many voters, regardless of their political leanings, might think very hard about whether we truly want these two back in the White House? Most definitely can’t talk about it.
