A very powerful video from the former president of Chicago NOW on why she’s changed her choice of presidential candidate:
>> UPDATE By Bob:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign aired a new radio ad here Wednesday that repeated a discredited charge against Sen. Barack Obama, in what some Democrats said is part of an increasing pattern of hardball politics by her and former president Bill Clinton.
The ad takes one line from an Obama interview — “The Republicans were the party of ideas for a pretty long chunk of time there over the last 10, 15 years” — and juxtaposes it with GOP policies that Obama has never advocated.
Clinton may win the primary but she will lose the general election if she keeps this up, I think. She cannot become President if any significant fraction of the Democrats who support Obama do not vote for her. Worst of all, she may lose the possibility of an endorsement by David, a tantalizing prize that is still possible before the Massachusetts primary. [- Bob]
