Quote of the Day
Posted by: McQ on Monday, March 03, 2008

Hillary Clinton provides it via Andrew Malcolm:
"I think that I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. Sen. John McCain has a lifetime of experience that he'd bring to the White House. And Sen. Obama has a speech he gave in 2002."
Wow.

So - does it seem that perhaps the Democratic nomination process is getting even more heated (if that's possible)?

You know it's bad when a candidate acknowledges a "lifetime of experience" for the opposing party's candidate over that of the rival for her party's nomination.

If she wins, that's one she can't take back, and, of course, McCain doesn't have to acknowledge the same thing for her.

So, I guess a VP slot for Clinton is out of the question?

Wow. That was funny. Props to her writers, although I’ll bet her delivery was lame. Some might even call that comment uncivil, or rude.

I was considering the point that if she loses, that’s one she can’t take back. Good luck with quickly healing the party and moving forward, united against the GOP.

Probably he most effective salvo. Too late though.

It was a severe comment, up there with George H. W. Bush’s "Voodoo Economics" comment.

This is why Republicans want the Democratic contest to continue, the longer it goes on, the more likely someone will say something that will be gold for the general election.

Not rude or uncivil, just hardball, it’s not like she suggested that if Obama won, her husband would have him killed.

Wulf’s right, it also indicates, at this late moment, that she will take down the whole party if she doesn’t get her way, which will be the mother lode for Republicans.

It’s looking better for John McCain every day.

After the damage they do to each other, they may need to be on the same ticket to even have a chance, but this comment, like the voodoo economics comment, won’t be a deal breaker, a Hillary/Obama ticket was unlikely already, and it’s still unlikely, but no more unlikely because of this.

I am betting she will be on the ticket in Nov. By hook, crook, or 9 mm.

She has proven she will do whatever it takes to win this. Whatever it takes.

Tut, tut. How uncivil of you, insinuating that Hillary will have her opponents killed.

Well, Obama appears to be gracious, so it may not be a deal breaker (if the situation were reversed, not so much), however I think it pushes Obama a little farther away from selecting her.

However, I think she would need Obama as VP, but he really would do better with someone with actual experience, Bill Richardson, for example.

Doesn’t everyone have a lifetime of exprience to bring with them to the whitehouse? I have a lifetime, you have a lifetime, my four year old has a lifetime’s experience, everybody has a lifetime’s experience. Although now that I think of it, maybe McCain has two lifetimes experience.

McCain has two lifetimes experience.
Yes, but one of them is completely irrelevant.

Kind of like having a Sovietologists as your Secretary of State, a decade after Soviets became extinct. Who would do that?

Fortunately, McCain’s second lifetime of experience is relevant, which makes him with the single lifetimes of Obama and Hillary.

Speaking of nifty quotes, I just came across a good one today, attributed to William F. Buckley Jr.

"I won’t insult your intelligence by suggestion that you really believe what you just said."

Truly lovely. Perhaps his legendary civility was as much a matter of style as substance.
