Bill Says Hillary Stayed Positive in Pennsylvania

I guess Bill felt as though Jeremiah Wright was stealing his thunder as worst campaign surrogate. Just in time to make up for his lackluster performance, he makes this statement, from ABC News:

"Most of what people have said in this campaign is wrong, including who's been more positive and who's been more negative," the former president told a crowd of more than 2,500 in Boone, N.C. "She's talked relentlessly about the solutions. She won in Pennsylvania after being hit with negative ad after negative ad after negative ad, and negative letters. And all she did was respond. She won being outspent three to one because the people knew she was in it for them."

To quote the New York Times after Hillary's "victory" in Pennsylvania:

On the eve of this crucial primary, Mrs. Clinton became the first Democratic candidate to wave the bloody shirt of 9/11. A Clinton television ad — torn right from Karl Rove’s playbook — evoked the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban missile crisis, the cold war and the 9/11 attacks, complete with video of Osama bin Laden. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” the narrator intoned.

I sure hope Bill's small town tour of North Carolina provides more fodder the rest of the week. His job is to play up the "Bubba" personality and that's always the one that gets him in trouble (with the ladies, with his wife, with all of America). It's nice to remember that while Hillary criticizes Obama for choosing Reverend Wright as his pastor, she's the one who chose Bill as her husband. A bit more of an intimate relationship. Well, maybe not...

This is one of my favorite "Bubba" scene from "Primary Colors" - the Mommathon:
