Hillary's Slender Hope

Barack is complaining about Hillary trying to drive a wedge between his candidacy and the voters of Michigan and Florida:
"Let's not sort of pretend that we don't know what's going on. This is, from their perspective, their last slender hope to make arguments about how they can win."
On the other hand, he's being very generous over Hillary's Bobby Kennedy remark, using the opportunity to buy himself some insurance for his own future blunders:
"I have learned that when you are campaigning for as many months as Senator Clinton and I have been campaigning, sometimes you get careless in terms of the statements that you make, and I think that is what happened here," he said in an interview with Radio ISLA. "Senator Clinton says that she did not intend any offense by it, and I will take her at her word on that."
Also unshaken by Hillary's rather innocent use of Bobby's memory is his son, Robert Jr.
“I’ve heard her make that argument before,” Mr. Kennedy said, speaking on his cell phone as he drove to the family compound in Hyannis for the holiday weekend. “It sounds like she was invoking a familiar historical circumstance in support of her argument for continuing her campaign.”

Mr. Kennedy said he has been traveling and had not seen the video or read Mrs. Clinton’s comments, but said his support of Mrs. Clinton has not wavered.

Barrack is such a whiner! Oh, Hillary is making me look bad in FL and MI. Oh, John McCain is a bully when he says I shouldn't take a cheap shot at him on the Senate floor! This guy has no cajones in my opinion. He is ALWAYS the victim! Oh, don't talk about my wife, that's not fair. And what's this about BO (oh, I just realized what that really could stand for!) always being "taken out of context". How many times do we need to hear the "special code words" for the "Republican and/or Clinton and/or the Press" purposefully taking my words and twisting them. THEN HE HAS TO APOLOGIZE. What a VICTIM! I'm tired of candidates being VICTIMS! Hillary isn't a victim... she has cajones and she will not go around blaming everyone (though she understands how to play one, granted). Hillary, thank you for NOT doing that this time. I'm a die hard Republican but my sympathies as a 46-year-old white woman is making me want to vote for her. She'll be just fine and she won't abandon the military in my position.
