Obama fired back at Clinton, “She of all people, having complained so often about ‘the politics of personal destruction,’ should move quickly to either stand by or renounce these tactics,” .
It’s true, Hillary, like most liberals must sniff the political winds, parse the words, calculate the timing, and then respond. Hillary has delayed to let the full effect of the Novak article sink in with moderates that might jump to Obama. That’s calculated. However, this supreme desire to control every aspect of the campaign can backfire, as see with Hillary’s multiple positions on Spitzer’s failed license for illegals push. Hillary didn’t count on 72% of NY Democrats opposing Spitzer. Time and time again Hillary has supposed she knows better than the general public, what good for the public. This is one of the cornerstones, and identifiable traits of the true liberal philosophy, the “We (I) know better than you, what’s good/right/moral for you”.
