Is the FAR Left running scared? Getting nervous? Getting desperate?

It is a tight race, neck and neck to the finish. The Far Left didn't think it would be close I guess.

Now they are saying if Barack doesn't win it will be Bill Clinton's fault.
It doesn't get much better than that. Hillary Clinton gets robbed of the nomination and her husband is supposed to be happy?

Good grief, they are threatening President Clinton.

Ah yes speculation abounds.
I don't remember where I read it, but someone somewhere put forth the theory that the Clintons are deliberately laying low in the hopes that McCain and Palin get elected and make such a worse mess of the country than Bush has that Hillary will be a shoo-in in 2012.
I wouldn't put such Machiavelian tactics past either one of the Clintons myself.

"Laying Low?" Are you serious? Hillary Clinton has been out campaigning like a mad woman. I just got an email from her a few minutes ago wanting donations for three different Dems running for the Senate.
She isn't laying low.

His wife was robbed of the nomination after winning in the popular vote 17.92 million votes to Obama's 17.72 million votes, can't say as how I blame President Clinton for maybe feeling a tad resentful.

Besides Bill Clinton is not beholden to the Democratic party to campaign for Barack no matter what the Huff-Po thinks.

The Far Left has done nothing but say how Bill Clinton is "old news" and the Clinton's need to step back and let the new guy in town take over, blah blah, blah, Bill CLinton is a has-been and unimportant as far as the far left is concerned But if Obama loses it will be all Bill Clinton's fault.
That is hilarious to me.

Allright Bill! I guess he had all kinds of good things to say about McCain on The View. Gee, I'm surprised Barbara and the other liberal hosts let him get away with that!

Yeah I remember the libs whining about Gore getting the popular vote back in 2000 but losing the electoral college. Suddenly I guess that doesn't matter to the libs. Whatever fits the ol' agenda!

I wasn't a big Clinton fan when he was president. But compared to Obama, he's a HUGE improvement. At least he seems to like America....

its not really shocking, HP and other liberals turned on hillary, and are now looking for a excuse for when obama goes down.

I just saw Bill Clinton on Greta on Fox News.

Sorry Huf-Po, he STILL didn't trash McCain or Palin.

He actually said Palin was more than capable. And never called her "cute."

What makes me laugh is all these people from the right praising Clinton while during his presidency all they wanted to do was get him out of office. He was despised by the right. I didn't like them then and I don't like them now. I would not blame Clinton if Obama loses. I am not into the blame the Clintons for everything school of thought but they are unable to let their moment in the sun fade away gracefully.

I never despised Bill Clinton and I am a right-winger.

I never despised Clinton either. I think any Clinton is a huge improvement over Obama, and that includes Chelsea and Socks....

Wait, where is the threat? I didn't see it.

I was okay with either Hillary or Obama taking the Democratic nomination, but something someone said on a Sunday morning program made a lot of sense. I'd love to claim it as my original thought, but it's not; I just think it's very true:

It's not good for us to have political dynasties. (What's the diff between that and having kings and queens?)

Speaking of which, maybe England will let us move back into our old room for a few years so we can save some money.

No, it isn't. http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/calculator/index.html Play around with it a bit and see which states would have to go McCain for him to have a chance.

Has not been a close race, McCain has been ahead only for the few days immediately after the convention. And that is without taking into account the fact that the polls are significantly biased in McCain's favor. http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5g...OUEDwD93DRP300

If things continue as they are (never a certainty of course) McCain has lost.

Polls in McCain's favor?? I don't think so. I've seen several studies showing that the polls are overrepresented by Democrats.

And how do you figure its not a close race?? The polls have been up and down....right now theGallup poll is tied. For the most part, McCain has been ahead in the electoral polls. No way Obama wins easy.....if its a landslide, it'll be a McCain landslide. Hopefully, the debates will further expose Obama for the horrendously bad candidate he is....

You must be watching a different race than I am.
Besides, polls mean nothing. Remember the exit polls that said Kerry was winning by a landslide?

It is anyone's race Z.

I just saw a video of Bill Clinton introducing John McCain before his speech at the Clinton Global Iniative and John McCain snippetts of his speech.
They said great things about each other, it was heart warming to me to see that. I am a sucker for bipartisanship.

Why? Would you have voted for her? I would not have...well maybe I would have.
I was tired of the Clintons. They are divisive. Even among their own party. They have business interests with McCain and I think they genuinely like each other. Probably should have been a Clinton/McCain ticket against a Romney/Giuliani ticket. Or something.
