"Beat the rookie with the Veteran"

Friday, March 14, 2008


As evidenced by this biting Special Comment from Keith Olbermann to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic party is in danger of tearing itself apart right now with its present discourse. Over the last two weeks of these attacks, Senator McCain's polling gap against Barack Obama has closed significantly - as much as a 12 point difference in some polls with the most recent Rasumussen Tracking poll giving McCain a slight edge nationally (where he trailed by 11 points on March 2). He now leads the RCP average poll against both Democratic candidates in all of the Big 3 Swing states: Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.

With polls in Pennsylvania giving Senator Clinton an average 16 pt margin the Democratic nomination, and these kind of attacks, promise to continue until August.
