Hillary is this the best you can do?
The Clinton Attack Plan
By Reed Hundt, TMP
The first problem is that Mrs. Clinton does not do this sort of attack very well. She claims, for instance, that she is not doing it, even when her own campaign is orchestrating the calumny, as in the case of the charges of plagiarism. She does not project leadership when she attempts to imbue minor policy debates with momentous significance. She does not show a sense of humor. She verges on appearing to be nasty. She seems to be demeaning Obama, which makes her seem desperate. And her husband always did a brilliant job on the offense when he was the candidate, but has not figured out how to do attacks for her.
