What remaining chance there might have been of me supporting Hillary Clinton has evaporated in the last 48 hours. Going after a guy for being honest is about as low as you can go. Today they rolled out their “no surprises” attack line, and it makes me sick to my stomach. So let me get this straight – since we already know what your issues are (and boy, do you have issues) the Dems should be less afraid of you? This, despite the fact that Obama is more honest and authentic, on the right side of the Iraq issue, much more likable, and probably far more likely to win in the general?
First of all, there will be surprises. Believe it or not, there are Clinton stones yet unturned, too. While I don’t think it’s necessarily relevant to compare Obama’s honesty to President Clinton’s, I do think it’s now fair to ask Hillary about her own recreational drug use. It’s hard to imagine she got through the sixties – and Wellesley – without LSD, marijuana, and who knows what else. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s OK – it’s an issue we are still far too hysterical about – but the media cannot responsibly play ride-along with this double-standard.
