I do think Bill has gone too far. As most of you know I have my own issues with Bill. Frankly Hillary shouldn't need Bill to "represent" her as the article suggested. Basically the Clintons are driving me crazy lately.
Bill might have gone too far. But all the male candidates have their wives "representing" them and often taking not too subtle digs at Hillary so their husbands don't have to. Elizabeth Edwards is, after all, more "joyful" that Hillary, and Michelle Obama lets us know that her husband can take of his house so he can take care of the White House.
That's true, but Bill was the president of the United States. I think he should have shut up.I think his comments hurt Hillary as much as they hurt Obama, (maybe more, we will see) and they made him the focus of the discussion, which irritated me. It was all about the guys again.
In other news, I was surprised Edwards dropped out so soon.
Me too. I wasn't necessarily going to vote for him, but I appreciated how he seemed to be the one driving the issues- he was the first to come out with specific proposals on many topics, including health care.
Also, I had meant to say that obviously it was different when Bill was "represents" Hillary and when the other candidates wives do so with their husbands. But it drives me a little crazy that no one points out that the wives are often sent out to do the dirty work as well.
I really started a discussion. It does annoy me when the spouses do the dirty work too. I think Jody pointed out the difference well. I would like to add that Hillary always acts like she is not somewhat responsible for what Bill says. Her claims that well I didn't actually say that is really annoying and disingenuous. Next Tuesday should be really fun.
I am still not really sure who I am going to vote for.
Since Jane doesn't really post here I thought I would relate a Jane election story. Jane went to the Barrack Obama rally here in Denver on Wednesday and was in the second row and got to shake his hand. She said that it was very cool.
I kind of like the feeling that, no matter who wins on the Democratic side, I am going to be pretty happy with the choice. They were always my two top picks. And, as Gail Collins writes in the NY Times today,"Unless you have very, very strong feelings about the details of mandatory coverage in a national health care plan, there is less than a millimeter of serious policy disagreement between them."
