Olbermann Slams Clinton in Special Comment: "You Are Campaigning As If Barack Obama Were The Democrat And You Were The Republican" - Media on The Huff

 
Olbermann Slams Clinton in Special Comment: "You Are Campaigning As If Barack Obama Were The Democrat And You Were The Republican" - Media on The Huffington Post

I found out today while doing an NPR interview and listening to Mary Frances Berry on air that Ferrarro said the same thing about Jesse Jackson when he ran for President.

It would behoove us to remember Rove-ian tactics and not have our heads in the sand re: the dems. Make no mistake: Hillary wants to be president and she will play the political game like the master players she and her team are. The issue of race is one play in a thick play book.

The question is whether Obama can recognize the level of the game afoot and win at it, while staying true to his aspiration for new politics (and not becoming completely demoralized). The people he's running against are doing old politics, and the world is watching to see how he manages it. He's going to have to beat politicos in his own backyard, or else how will he outplay them on a global stage?

A tough but exciting place to be.

The key is strategy, strategy, strategy. Obama needs his A Team.


P.S. Just turned on the television: Now it's the pastor. What next?

Rebecca~ you are spot on in your blog about GF. I am astounded that GF is using the same strategy she used in 1984. I hope the people get wise to all this rhetoric and Obama has the stamina to continue being strategic while taking the high road in this race.

Peace to you!

The Ferrarro comment is sickening in so many ways. When will people GET IT? Her comment was filled with so much jealously and resentment, not only towards Barack, but to all Black folks that have broken down barriers to traditionally white male, wealthy positions in society. The concept as a whole applies to anyone that has challenged the notion of something being only one gender, one race, one class, but to be specific, her comment really under-cut successful people of color. I think what is troubling the Clintons and so many others is that Barack Obama started out as a newcomer and somewhat an underdog, and now he has turned out to be a truly viable and competitive candidate for the White House. I really don't think they were expecting him to get this far. On another note, Rebecca, I love the new color scheme for your web-site, reminds me of the spring time cherry blossoms here in Washington state.
