Gary Hart’s Take

via Huffpo:

It will come as a surprise to many people that there are rules in politics. Most of those rules are unwritten and are based on common understandings, acceptable practices, and the best interest of the political party a candidate seeks to lead. One of those rules is this: Do not provide ammunition to the opposition party that can be used to destroy your party’s nominee. This is a hyper-truth where the presidential contest is concerned.

By saying that only she and John McCain are qualified to lead the country, particularly in times of crisis, Hillary Clinton has broken that rule, severely damaged the Democratic candidate who may well be the party’s nominee, and, perhaps most ominously, revealed the unlimited lengths to which she will go to achieve power. She has essentially said that the Democratic party deserves to lose unless it nominates her.

    I think Reagan called this the 11th commandment. “Thou shall not talk trash about your own party.”It seems as if she’s so into winning that she thinks that just making Obama lose will make her win.Or maybe she’s just plain nuts?I hope she gets well soon.Fred

    Paraphrasing here:He Said: I won’t abondon my relationship with my preacher.She Said: I would, if my preacher made comments, etc. like that.He Said: She’s just trying to take the spotlight off of the claims of gun-fire on the Bosia trip which was proven to be wrong.What are we here? In the 6th grade?? Nah-Nah-NahNahNah!!! Pat C.
