Good advice

A sage observation from Bill Clinton.

Also ironic, given that Clinton ran this ad in Pennsylvania. The Great Depression, Pearl Harbour, the Cold War, no gas at the pumps. Oh yes, and bin Laden, too:

I guess Bill will be voting for Obama.

    Getting away from the Sturm und Drang on the other thread for a moment…

    But ouch, yes. Bill walked into that one, didn’t he? Given that he’s a superdelegate, has he formally endorsed a candidate yet?

    And on a more serious note – but what on earth is Hillary playing at? Ever since that first aired I’ve notice that much the most common reaction around the web is that, for people who put national security first at least, then the answer to the question “who do you think has got what it takes?” at the end of a commercial like that is much more likely to be John McCain than either Clinton or Obama.

    Has Hillary really given up on the nomination this time round and is merely hanging on so as to sabotage Obama so she can run again in 2012? Because frankly that’s looking like the most rational explanation for a commercial like that at the moment – if so she really does need to be slightly less obvious about it. Heck, maybe she’s even bidding to be McCain’s VP on some sort of unity ticket (and I really have to stop thinking like that RIGHT NOW because it’s sounding too horribly logical)…

    Andrew Sullivan has argued that position for a long time now, in complete seriousness.

    Initially, I thought it was a little far-fetched, but perhaps not. If Obama becomes President, presumably that’s the end of Hillary’s presidential hopes. But if he loses to McCain, she would immediately become the frontrunner for 2008.
