Why Rahm?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Billary, History

Because Obama didn’t want his transition to be like Bill Clinton’s, which by all indications was an unmitigated disaster. From Ambinder… In 1992, the only Democrats who had run the White House in the past quarter century had worked for Jimmy Carter — and Carter’s tenure didn’t exactly inspire confidence.

With leaners McCain – 47% Obama – 46% Without leaners Obama – 44% McCain – 44% McCain edges up one and this is significant since he hasn’t really been above the 45% mark for a while in the “with leaners” numbers. So now this is two straight days, which could position him well for sustaining […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Billary, Democrats

Sure, his office put out a tepid endorsement about a month ago, but this latest non-answer of whether Obama is ready to be President is classic Clinton doublespeak.
