I ask again, why hasn't Hillary put Barack away?
- As First Lady, Hillary garners her husband's a former president administrations accomplishments. The director cut 'only the good stuff'.
- She has the Democratic party machine behind her as well as first hand experience running a national campaign. So why is she always broke and begging me for $5 ?
- She commands the loyalty of old skilled staffers who can leverage media control talking points promoting her agenda. Where is Howard Beale when you need him?
- Her new phase, 'enlisting the enemy of my enemy' partnering with Republicans straightens her one goal, advancing attacks on Obama. Hillary's movie debut: 'Soylent Green Redux' or 'Shaming Rove: Eating Your Own'.

Must read: Sidney Blumenthal Uses Former Right-Wing Foes To Attack Obama
Almost every day over the past six months, I have been the recipient of an email that attacks Obama's character, political views, electability, and real or manufactured associations. The original source of many of these hit pieces are virulent and sometimes extreme right-wing websites, bloggers, and publications. But they aren't being emailed out from some fringe right-wing group that somehow managed to get my email address. Instead, it is Sidney Blumenthal who, on a regular basis, methodically dispatches these email mudballs to an influential list of opinion shapers -- including journalists, former Clinton administration officials, academics, policy entrepreneurs, and think tankers -- in what is an obvious attempt to create an echo chamber that reverberates among talk shows, columnists, and Democratic Party funders and activists. One of the recipients of the Blumenthal email blast, himself a Clinton supporter, forwards the material to me and perhaps to others.
Hillary Watch Update:
HILLARY 'TOWN HALL' TO BE HOSTED BY EX-CLINTON STAFFER STEPHANOPOULOS
Just hours before the Indiana and North Carolina presidential primaries, ABCNEWS has offered to air a 'town hall' meeting with Hillary Clinton -- to be hosted by former Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos! Embracing and racing through a brave new era of journalism, it is not clear if ABCNEWS will inform viewers of Stephanopoulos's past employment. Stephanopoulos helped run Mr. Clinton's first presidential election campaign and acted as his press secretary and advisor on policy and strategy before joining ABC NEWS. An executive at a rival network mocked, "We look forward to ABC holding the next town hall meeting with President Bush, hosted by Karl Rove!" ABC will air the hour-long Hillary forum live from Indianapolis on Sunday. "George has interviewed all the candidates time and time again and has put tough but fair questions to each," said a network spokesman. "Expect the same on Sunday." The network hit controversy last month over the decision to allow Bill Clinton's former press secretary to moderate a debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- without any disclaimer.
The Jed Report: Gibson & Stephanopoulos: Certified media whores for Clinton
I guess I'm glad I don't have a radio show on Air America, because I'd probably get fired for the title of this post. But the title is true: Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos have joined forces to destroy ABC's credibility as a news organization.
Last night, they teamed up on an "analysis" of Barack Obama's speech on Jeremiah Wright. You have to watch it to believe it -- it was almost like a video press release for the Clinton campaign:
They were so overtly biased last night that I decided it was time to go back to the video of the Philadelphia debate and edit together a montage. Before you press play, let me offer one warning: you're going to get angry watching this.
