Well, the more he talks and says these ignorant things, it just makes it worse for her. He has put his foot in his mouth many times which is why Hillary lost in South Carolina. Desperation has taken hold of both them and I can't imagine what is yet to come out of both of their mouths in the next several weeks.

Here is what Clinton said:

Quote:
Extolling John McCain as “an honorable man,” and talking about McCain’s friendship with his wife, the former president told veterans: “I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country. And people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics.”
The news media faulted Obama's advisor since, nowhere in Clinton's speech did he mention his wife as one of the two people and Obama as not being one of the two people. They felt Bill Clinton meant, in general, it would be nice to have two people arguing about issues instead of all the other junk that comes up during elections.

Obama's advisor was out of line. Is Obama going to denounce and reject him now?

Not only that the advisor brought up McCarthyism (sp) out of left field when bill said nothing of the sort. Many democrats are saying the reaction was over done. So much for Obama as the nice guy this election cycle.

Actually he does mention her as one of the two people, but nobody trying to defend Clinton seems to want to include the next words he spoke.


"I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country," Clinton said, "and people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics.
"So that's my argument for her."

Unless you are one of the those who refuse to hear what they don't want to hear, listen to the whole speech and it is very clear he mentions her and McCain.

Wow! Thanks for that. It's always so hard to get the whole story. Thanks for the WHOLE quote!

Analysis seems to be problem rocking Clinton supporters in this forum. It takes a very much open approach for them to realize what is being said.

You would have to be a moron not understand what Bill was trying to say. What two people does he think the American people thought he was referring to? Obama and McCain? PLEASE! He tries to be so subtle with his little snipes and then argues there was nothing wrong with what he said and people misunderstood his comment and wrongly accused. Give me a break. There are many people, including myself who know Bill all too well. He has already proven to the American people he is NOT honest and has a reputation of lying.
