This is Too Much Fun! UPDATED
Former Democratic President Bill Clinton
"I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country,"
In response Obama advisor General Merrill McPeak said:
"I grew up, I was going to college when Joe McCarthy was accusing good Americans of being traitors, so I've had enough of it,"
James Carville: , Clinton advisor
"Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,”
Bill Richardson who endorsed Obama said in response:
I’m not going to get in the gutter like that,” Richardson responded on “Fox News Sunday.” “And you know, that’s typical of many of the people around Senator Clinton. They think they have a sense of entitlement to the presidency.”
Obama adviser Gordon Fischer invoked the Monica Lewinsky scandal on his blog
"Bill Clinton cannot possibly seriously believe Obama is not a patriot, and cannot possibly be said to be helping -- instead he is hurting -- his own party. B. Clinton should never be forgiven. Period. This is a stain on his legacy, much worse, much deeper, than the one on Monica's blue dress."
Hillary Clinton on Reverend Wright
"He would not have been my pastor," Clinton said. "You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend."
"After originally refusing to play politics with this issue, it's disappointing to see Hillary Clinton's campaign sink to this low in a transparent effort to distract attention away from the story she made up about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia. The truth is, Barack Obama has already spoken out against his pastor's offensive comments and addressed the issue of race in America with a deeply personal and uncommonly honest speech. The American people deserve better than tired political games that do nothing to solve the larger challenges facing this country,"
Former Sen George McGovern, a Hillary Clinton supporter:
"I have a feeling that in this country where we're at today in our thinking, it's going to be harder to elect a woman than to elect a black man," "I wish that weren't true ... I'd love to see Hillary as president. ( With friends like this.......)
Obama advisor former General McPeak talking about Jewish Americans:
"New York City. Miami. We have a large vote - vote, here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it.
