Clinton: I Will Not Cross Picket Line For CBS Debate

Hillary Clinton issued the following statement:

“The workers at CBS News have been without a contract for close to two and a half years. It is my hope that both sides will reach an agreement that results in a secure contract for the workers at CBS News but let me be clear:

“I will honor the picket line if the workers at CBS News decide to strike.

“AmericaÕs unions are the backbone of America’s middle class and I will always stand with America’s working men and women in the fight to ensure that they are able to earn a fair wage.”

Obama Linked To Louis Farrakhan & Nation of Islam???

(In) a speech given by Obama describ(ed) his religious conversion and praising the reverend Jeremiah Wright the minister of the Trinity United Church of Christ, the church which Obama attends. What you neglected to mention is that the Trinity United Church of Christ is a militant black church and Wright ( who is a friend of Louis Farrakhan) is so controversial that Obama had to disinvite him when he announced for president.The fact is that Obama, unlike Colin Powell, is not an assimilated black. Although raised by white grand parents as an adult he has strongly identified with the black community as first as an organizer and then state Senator. Furthermore his wife Michelle appears to have a chip on her shoulder when it comes to whites.

Hillary, that sick feeling in your stomach is Oprah entering the room

A few questions to ask now about Oprah support for Obama:

  • Why is Oprah endorsing Obama now, when she supported Bill Clinton previously?
  • What is it about Hillary that turns Oprah off?
  • Are Obama and Oprah really soul mates, or is this another “marriage of convenience?
  • What is the relationship of Oprah and Obama to a controversial church in Chicago?
  • Hillary, that sick feeling in your stomach is Oprah entering the room.
  • How soon before Hillary trashes Obama’s voting record in Illinois?
  • Will Oprah’s request for Obama contributions dry-up Hillary’s funds?
  • If elected, how will Obama payoff Oprah?
  • Will this turn into a “woman vs. woman” primary (cat) fight?
  • Can Hillary continue to play the gender card, with Oprah?
  • How will Oprah respond to the mudslinging that will come from the Clinton’s?

HOT! Oprah To Stump For Obama In Iowa & New Hampshire

 TV host Oprah Winfrey is ready to join Sen. Barack Obama on the campaign stump — and will soon join the Democratic presidential candidate in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Asked in New Hampshire on Tuesday if Oprah would be campaigning with him, Obama said, “First she’s coming to Iowa.” He quickly added that “we’ll get her up here” — referring to New Hampshire. “We’re just doing it one state at a time,” he said.

Clinton says Obama not fit; Obama says Clinton wasn’t Treasury secretary

FORT DODGE, IOWA — Amid new polling that points to a shift in momentum in this crucial state, Democratic presidential contenders Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama made arguments Monday that electing the other would prove a costly mistake. (NOTE: ‘Both are correct’)

In a morning campaign stop, the New York senator suggested that her colleague from Illinois was not fit to oversee a U.S. economy where more families are struggling to keep their homes and pay medical bills.

He (Obama) also questioned whether Clinton, a former first lady, had done anything in life to make her a better option for voters worried about an economic slump. “My understanding was she wasn’t Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. I don’t know exactly what experience she’s claiming.”

The quarrel came as a new poll showed that Clinton, despite her large national lead, had yet to pull ahead in Iowa, the first test in the 2008 campaign. A Washington Post/ABC News poll showed a tight three-way race, with Obama supported by 30% of likely caucus-goers, Clinton by 26%, and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards by 22%.

Supreme Court Ruling On FEC Issue

This ruling will cause the candidates to rush headlong to get union endorsements, even from the smallest and the most corrupt unions.

The Federal Elections Commission will vote today on a rule interpreting the Supreme Court’s decision in a key campaign finance case, The Hill reports. The case, in which the Court ruled that corporations and unions could pay for ads within a 60-day window the FEC had banned, has led to new rules that top election lawyers on both sides say are confusing and will be difficult to enforce. Reform groups contend the new proposal is more than the Court wanted, and would essentially de-fang the campaign finance reform act’s communications provision, opening the door to new attack ads within days of an election.

New Poll Has Obama Leading Hillary

New ABC News/Washington Post poll that shows Barack Obama leading Hillary Clinton by the narrowest of margins in Iowa. A July ABC/Post poll showed Obama ahead as well, but this poll is the first since a Newsweek survey in late September showed Obama leading. The cross-tabs shed light on why Obama may be ahead: Of the one-third in the poll who had met a candidate, more than half met Obama, as Ben Smith points out. Edwards has met 38% of that subsample to Clinton’s 36% and 22% for Bill Richardson.

NEW LOW! Clinton mocks Obama’s childhood experience

Clinton mocks Obama’s childhood experience

November 20, 2007

SHENANDOAH, Iowa — Hillary Rodham Clinton ridiculed Democratic rival Barack Obama on Tuesday for his contention that living in a foreign country as a child helped give him a better understanding of the foreign policy challenges facing the U.S.

‘‘Voters will have to judge if living in a foreign country at the age of 10 prepares one to face the big, complex international challenges the next president will face,’’ Clinton said. ‘‘I think we need a president with more experience than that, someone the rest of the world knows, looks up to and has confidence in.’’

I Can Hear Hillary Scream – Oh NO! Oprah’s Going To Iowa!

 I can hear the screaming now, see the dishes being thrown, heads will roll.  Where’s the Prozac?  With Oprah going to Iowa to stump for Obama the Hillary campaign will need to put Prozac in all their water bottles.  It’s over for Hillary in Iowa.

MANCHESTER, N.H.—Oprah Winfrey is poised to campaign for White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in Iowa and New Hampshire, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

Obama made the disclosure while working a crowd at Central High School here, after delivering an education policy speech. A man, Ralph Hoagland, asked Obama—who was mingling and shaking hands– if Oprah was going to stump for Obama in New Hampshire.

“First she’s coming to Iowa,” Obama told Hoagland, who in 1963 was a co-founder of what is now the giant CVS pharmacy chain. “But we’ll talk about it. We’ll get her up here.”

A woman piped up. “We need her here.”

“Is she thinking of not coming up to New Hampshire?” Hoagland asked?

Obama replied, “No, no no. We’re just doing it one state at a time.”

Spitzer A Bully, Gets Bullied By Hillary

 Did Spitzer the Bully really cave on those drivers licenses for illegals, or was he bullied by Hillary?

Spitzer A Bully – Why did he cave on drivers license?

http://www.nypost.com/seven/11192007/news/columnists/eliots_bully_made_threat__insider_801774.htm

November 19, 2007 — A TOP aide to Gov. Spitzer in volved in the Dirty Tricks Scandal angrily threatened to “professionally kill” a top utility executive for opposing the governor’s energy policies, sources have told The Post.

Spitzer Policy Director Peter Pope said he was “going to kill” Gavin Donohue, the head of the Independent Power Producers of New York, an association of private energy companies, in a bitter clash early last summer over the governor’s efforts to block the construction of nuclear-power plants and more than two “clean coal” plants in the state, the sources said.

“He was really threatening Gavin. It was unbelievable. It was shocking,” said one of the state’s best-known lobbyists.

“Pope was screaming and threatening to get him fired with his bosses and jabbing his finger in Donohue’s face,” added another source, who claimed Pope had also threatened several lobbyists over policy disagreements.

Federal Election Commission Fines Hillary Pal, Harold Ickes

Media Fund, run by Harold Ickes, a confidant of Hillary has been slapped with a heavy fine for campaign violations.  How soon before the FEC uncovers similiar violations related to Hillary’s campaign?  Can’t blame Obama or the Republians for this one.

The Federal Election Commission unanimously voted to levy a $580,000 fine against a group that spent tens of millions of dollars in support of Democrat John Kerry’s presidential campaign in 2004. 

The Media Fund, which was partially funded by billionaire George Soros and led by former Bill Clinton aide Harold M. Ickes and EMILY’s List President Ellen Malcolm, agreed to pay the fine to settle charges it illegally spent more than $53 million in the run-up to Election Day 2004.

The penalty is the seventh largest in FEC history.

Obama Ahead of Hillary In Iowa – 30% vs. 26%

Latest:  Fox News is reporting that Obama is now polling ahead of Hillary in Iowa.

For Democrats, there may be a shift from issues being important to character being important.  Also, Obama may have hit on a good strategy, going after Hillary on the character and experience (lack of) issues.Iowa Democrats are tilting toward change, and Obama appears to be benefiting from it.

Fifty-five percent of those surveyed reported that a “new direction and new ideas” are their top priority, compared with 33 percent who favored “strength and experience.” That is a shift from July, when 49 percent sought change and 39 percent experience.

Nationally, Clinton is viewed as a candidate of change, with support from 41 percent of Democrats seeking a new direction in a recent Post-ABC poll. But in Iowa, Obama dominates the “change” vote, winning 43 percent of that group, compared with 25 percent for Edwards and 17 percent for Clinton.

She appears more vulnerable on questions of character. Thirty-one percent found Obama to be the most honest and trustworthy, about double the percentage who said the same of Clinton. While about three-quarters credited both Obama and Edwards with speaking their mind on issues, only 50 percent said Clinton is willing enough to say what she really thinks. Forty-five percent said she is not sufficiently candid.

Overall, the poll points to some strategic gains for Obama. His support is up eight percentage points since July among voters 45 and older — who accounted for two-thirds of Iowa caucus-goers in 2004.
