Obama campaign: blood in the water?
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 07, 2008

First we had NAFTA-gate where a senior advisor to Barack Obama is accused of telling the Canadians that Obama's anti-NAFTA rhetoric was political positioning which shouldn't be taken seriously.

Then Susan Rice, a foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign said Obama wasn't ready to answer the 3am phone call.

Now we have Samantha Power, a senior foreign policy advisor to the Obama campaign, calling Hillary Clinton a "monster" in a foreign newspaper and causing enough embarrassment that Obama felt compelled to apologize.
A senior foreign policy adviser to Barack Obama was forced to apologize Thursday night for describing Hillary Clinton as a "monster" during an interview with a Scottish newspaper, a major embarrassment to the Illinois senator who promised voters he wouldn't engage in the politics of personal destruction.

During an interview with The Scotsman, Samantha Power, one of Obama's unpaid advisers, said Clinton would stop at nothing in her zeal to seize the lead from Obama.

"She is a monster, too - that is off the record - she is stooping to anything," Power said, hastily trying to withdraw her remark.
The cracks and seams are beginning to show as the campaign becomes more bruising and personal. The previously well-functioning, well-disciplined, stay-on-message campaign is showing the stress of the extended campaign with these stumbles. Such gaffes only reinforce the charge that Obama, et. al, are not ready for prime time. Expect the Clinton campaign to ratchet up the noise even more. They smell blood in the water and they'll not back off an inch now.

But how will St. Obama react if he loses the nomination in a floor fight? I have a feeling that while he may force himself to lose gracefully, his supporters won’t swing to Hillary, certainly not since McCain is probably the least objectionable GOP member they can run againt (from their point of view)

I have numerous friends who may be persuaded to vote for McCain or Obama. They have stated emphatically if Hillary is the nominee they will vote for McCain.

Slightly off topic, but is anyone doing anything special to prepare for the "black rage" riots if Obama loses a squeaker at either the convention or in the general election?
