    This from Robert Reich, on why he endorsed Obama

    “I saw the ads” – the negative man-on-street commercials that the Clinton campaign put up in Pennsylvania in the wake of Obama’s bitter/cling comments a week ago – “and I was appalled, frankly. I thought it represented the nadir of mean-spirited, negative politics. And also of the politics of distraction, of gotcha politics. It’s the worst of all worlds. We have three terrible traditions that we’ve developed in American campaigns. One is outright meanness and negativity. The second is taking out of context something your opponent said, maybe inartfully, and blowing it up into something your opponent doesn’t possibly believe and doesn’t possibly represent. And third is a kind of tradition of distraction, of getting off the big subject with sideshows that have nothing to do with what matters. And these three aspects of the old politics I’ve seen growing in Hillary’s campaign. And I’ve come to the point, after seeing those ads, where I can’t in good conscience not say out loud what I believe about who should be president. Those ads are nothing but Republicanism. They’re lending legitimacy to a Republican message that’s wrong to begin with, and they harken back to the past 20 years of demagoguery on guns and religion. It’s old politics at its worst – and old Republican politics, not even old Democratic politics. It’s just so deeply cynical.”

    If it wasn’t for his long-time relationship/loyalty to the Clintons I would’ve asked him: Hey, Robbie! What took you so long?

    I voted for Hillary, for senator, twice. I kind of regret the second time, but what option did I really have? John Spencer? Yeah, right. Her carpetbagger ploy always kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Her authorizing Bush to use military force in Iraq – and her refusal to apologize for it, or even acknowledge it as a mistake – left me very cool to her. But, the way she has conducted herself during this primary has really exposed the ugly side of Hillary.

    I have really had it with her. I really wish she would just step aside, and get back to the business of being the Junior Senator from New York.
