Obama vs. Hillary

I read an article in Insight Magazine that has the fingerprints of Hillary all over it-

Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?

This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.

Of course, several days after this article came out, the Hillary camp is denying that they are the ones digging up the dirt on Obama. Instead, Republicans are being blamed for leaking this information in a Times Online article-

But the article also claimed that the madrassa allegations came from aides to Hillary Clinton, Mr Obama’s main opponent for the Democratic nomination.

This may be wishful thinking on behalf of Republicans. The Clinton camp is determined not to be accused of digging dirt on Mr Obama because they fear such tactics could backfire, given his popularity.

But the Insight allegations represent an exquisite double shot at the Democrats’ two leading White House contenders: it implies that Mr Obama, whose middle name is Hussein, is a closet Islamic extremist, and that Mrs Clinton is so rattled by his candidacy she is using underhand tactics to weaken him.

Of course, Insight Magazine's article is full of un-named sources. It is impossible to know where this information came from.

When Hillary made her claim- "I'm in to win", this was her first warning shot to her Democratic opponents.

Obama's supporters need to heed these words of warning. Hillary is serious about winning.

In the meantime, Hillary will continue to claim that it is the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" making all of this up.

Those of us that are part of the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" can sit back and watch this battle in the Democratic Party unfold.

Obama vs. Hillary

Oh boy, this is going to be alot of fun to watch.
