Hillary and McCain are One in the Same

April 7th, 2008 | by Steve O |

Imagine that you found out that Clinton’s chief strategist was not only her campaign’s leading advocate for these attacks — but was also the CEO of a public affairs firm whose DC-based lobbying subsidiary was headed up by John McCain’s top adviser.

You can stop imagining and start thinking about who you are really going to vote for in the Democratic primaries. A vote FOR Hillary in the primaries is a vote FOR McCain in the general elections.

    Yes, you can stop imagining because it is simply not true since Charlie Black resigned from Penn’s firm last week in order to go work for McCain’s campaign. Source? The same source as you used at the same link. But let’s say, for the sake of argument, that the original claim were true…so what? Two individuals working in the same organization can’t have different politics? Well, of course, when you ask that obvious question and think about it for a nanosecond or two you realize that, of course, they can so even before going to your lame ass source and finding out that the entire basis for your post had been blown clean out of the water by your source, there was never anything to it in the first place.

    Not that it was ever true that a vote for Hillary was a vote for McCain. Do you, for a moment, imagine (or perhaps that should read “You can’t rationally suppose…”) that Hillary, if she should win the Democratic nomination, wouldn’t fight to win the general election in the same way that she’s fought to in the primaries. Or perhaps you meant that less literally, that there is no difference between Hillary and McCain. Is that what you meant? Are you serious? Hillary = McCain? On any issue, let alone on Iraq? Sure. I suppose you could imagine such a thing if you ignore the history of both candidates’ public statements on Iraq since the vote to authorize the use of military force in Iraq. Ignoring history, however, is never a good idea.

    No. In my opinion, the entirety of your post is wrong on every level.

    But that’s just me, of course.

    Just wondering. And this is not so much for the author of the post but for the powers that be behind decisionmaking here at BIO! Is it a conscious decision not to anywhere tell the reader who the author of any of these posts is or is that a by-product of the changes made to the page designs? It helps me, when reading, to know who the author is. Perhaps authors could be encouraged to inform the reader who they are, either at the beginning or the end of the posts.

    Craig, Cranky is quite busy with his REAL job lately and there are tweaks and plugins that handle the type of thing your asking about.

    As for the Author of the piece..I don’t see that as a big deal really..the piece should stand or fall on its own..regardless of the author.

    Cranky will get to it as soon as he is able..considering he is the only one that does the template tweaking here at BIO.
