Clinton Breaks the Rules: Wise Words from Gary Hart

Maybe the Dems do have some elder statesmen/wise men left after all. Gary Hart, who was the Obamaphenoma of the 1984 primary season (eventually losing to Walter Mondale, who then got landslid by Reagan), has stepped forward to denounce Clinton for saying that only she and McCain have the foreign policy experience to keep America safe in these troubled times.   An excerpt:

By saying that only she and John McCain are qualified to lead the country, particularly in times of crisis, Hillary Clinton has . . .  severely damaged the Democratic candidate who may well be the party’s nominee, and, perhaps most ominously, revealed the unlimited lengths to which she will go to achieve power. She has essentially said that the Democratic party deserves to lose unless it nominates her.

I’m not fully sold on Obama, but I think Hart nails it here. His  full statement is here if you want to read it.

  1. Not only has Hillary hurt possibly Obama but she has doomed herself in a match-up against McCain. If the criterion is years in Washington , McCain has it over Hillary in spades.

    Hillary does not give a rat’s petutie about the USA. She would rather lose to McCain than to Obama.

    McCain quarantees continuation of the war and the Bush economy. Hillary does not care about that.
