Clinton's Effect

I don't believe polls unless they agree with my observations. The 3/31 Diageo poll confirms my opinion of the effect Hillary Clinton's campaign tactics have had on the presidential race.
  1. She has damaged Obama (McCain +6, Obama -4 since mid-February).
  2. While at the same time she has damaged herself (Obama +7, Clinton -7).
It isn't the fact that Hillary has stayed in the race that is a problem, her scorched earth campaign tactics are sinking the ship. The problem is her inability to send a positive, uplifting message.

Her view is if she can't win than neither should Obama. She wants to run again in 2012.

Pretty sad when one puts their political career ahead of what is best for America.

McCain is doing the same thing. He sold us out to BushCo for his chance to run for President.
