So, was Michelle Obama, the wannabe first lady, taking a swipe at her husband’s Dem rival, Hillary Clinton? Via the Chicago Sun-Times.
At another stop, in Atlantic, Michelle said she travels with her husband in part “to model what it means to have family values,” adding “if you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House.” She didn’t elaborate, but it could be interpreted as a swipe at the Clintons.
Honestly, I think Michelle Obama is going to be an even bigger liability for Barack during his campaign in 2008 than Teresa Heinz was for John Kerry in 2004. Now, that takes some doing.
But, to answer Michelle Malkin’s question, Michelle Obama was dissing Hillary. It is common practice for the lagging candidates to take jabs at the leader of the pack in a primary. Obama and Edwards are regularly taking shots at Hillary. It is a way for them to try to work their way out of a slump in their lagging campaigns. It happens in both parties. But, come convention time, once the primaries are over, rivals now will be singing the virtues of their current opponents. Some may even be
Interestingly, I was listening to The Hallerin Hilton Hill Show this morning on WNOX, I believe it was, and it was mentioned that Barack Obama appeals to young Americans. It was also noted that young Americans don’t tend to vote. That could explain some of his slump in the race, so far. John Edwards, well he is a walking contradiction with the platform on which he is trying to run as a champion of the downtrodden with his expensive haircuts, a mansion for a home, etc. That could explain his slump. That may also explain why his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, is fighting for his candidacy.
Sick the ladies on Hillary, so the guys don’t get any backlash for doing it themselves. Not the dumbest move on the record.
