What difference does it make, you're leaving anyway?

I'm usually hesitant to link to RealClearPolitics finding the name a misnomer. A better name for the site might be BlurryRightwingPolitics, for anyone that's familiar with their dribbling. But in this case it's a simple transcript (FOX, of course) in which one comment in particular stood out.


SAMMON: It was a pretty tough statement by Geffen and the reason Hillary came out after it was because, they've been itching for some time to go after this guy. They look at Barack Obama as the biggest single obstacle to her securing the Democratic nomination.

If this is true then Hillary's even more deliriously out of touch than I've assumed. The biggest obstacle to her securing the Democratic nomination isn't Barack Obama. The biggest single obstacle to her (or Obama for that matter) securing the Democratic nomination are the voters in the Democratic party.


They're the ones collectively shaking their heads in disgust as the two biggest stars in the party publicly argue over trivial crap like what some supporter said, rather than over the giant issue looming over this country for years to come.


IT'S THE WAR, STUPID.

Hmm must have been a slow news day in Iraq...

I still think she's not serious, and I don't even know about Obama. I mean, how's a black congressman going to win the White House in this country?

I really hope it's all posturing so that the rebubs prepare smear campaigns on the wrong guys, then the really nominee comes in like a dark horse.

But I could be dreaming too!

They better watch out or Hilary will make them "disappear" just like she did with Vince Foster and Anna Nicole & son.

I think there's just a few areas of the country that he'd have to worry about, unfortunately they're areas with a lot of electoral votes.

It's not the color of his skin but his lack of spine that worries me.

Don't forget Gary Coleman. He used to be all over the tv...

It's Not the War Stupid for Hillary, it's all about how she looks at any given moment. Maybe I'm not a fan...

I'm right there with you.

I was just saying that if any Democrat wants to be President they're going to have to bring everything back to the war in Iraq and they're going to have to take a strong position against it.

It was a little play on the famous "It's the economy, stupid" that hung in the war room of Bill Clinton's presidential campaign.
