Grasping at Straws

Now to be honest I never liked Hilary Clinton so I am predisposed to disagree with her on a lot of things that she does and says. So this flap she is trying to start about Obama "plagiarizing" from Gov. Patrick is something I was skeptical of from the start. After watching a clip of this issue being brought up on the Texas debate I’ve concluded she was way out of line.

Patrick is an Obama advisor and someone who apparently frequently makes suggestions about what Obama should say in speeches. In this case that Clinton is trying to make a big deal of she is more or less accusing Obama of having a speech writer. And if you look at it that way its pretty silly to bring it up at all.

Can Clinton win on substance? Bringing this silly item up makes me wonder if she and her team are afraid that substance is not enough. Interesting.

    Obama and Patrick are old chums. I remember during Patrick’s campaign, Obama came to a packed gym in a Boston suburb to speak on his behalf. And one of the two commented on how much they have in common, including a witty quip like, “And we’ve got funny names.”

    “Grasping at straws” is a good way to put it. It comes across like she’s desperate to keep Obama from advancing any more in the polls.
