Hillary Clinton vs. Barack Obama Battle Royal Round 1 … “Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling”
“Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling” (David Geffen)
That’s going to leave a mark.
Let’s hope that this is a sincere battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for President and not another pathetic John Edwards pandering to be VP stunt. Barack Obama takes Hollywood. Has Hollywood turned on the Clintons because of too much excess baggage?
A clear undercurrent to yesterday’s high-profile Hollywood swing was the ease with which Obama swept up support from entertainment industry titans who had once been squarely with President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.). (Washington Post)
The new kid on the block is cutting into Hillary’s turf. The political debates and Primaries should prove truly interesting. Hillary Clinton may be the only Democrat who is upset that Democrats took over the House and Senate during the 2006 midterms. Now she must explain her past votes to all wings of the Democratic party.
(AP) LOS ANGELES Checks from Hollywood’s A-list stars such as George Clooney, Eddie Murphy and Barbra Streisand added up to a one-night take of $1.3 million for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who earlier Tuesday urged an audience of thousands at an outdoor rally to help him transform America.
From the outset, it would appear as if Barack means business and Hillary is running a bit scared of the new kid on the block. The battle went negative and rather quickly, Hillary Clinton, Obama in Hot Exchange Over Hollywood Heavyweight’s Comments.
“We aren’t going to get in the middle of a disagreement between the Clintons and someone who was once one of their biggest supporters. It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when was raising them $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln bedroom,” Obama campaign communications director Robert Gibbs said in a statement that was e-mailed to the news media.
David Geffen, former Clinton supporter has words that were none too kind to Hillary Clinton and her campaign for the 2008 Presidential election.
“Not since the Vietnam War has there been this level of disappointment in the behavior of America throughout the world, and I don’t think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is – and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton? – can bring the country together,” he was quoted as saying. “Obama is inspirational, and he’s not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family,” Geffen added. Geffen was particularly bitter about Sen. Clinton’s position on Iraq. “It’s not a very big thing to say, ‘I made a mistake’ on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can’t…. She’s so advised by so many smart advisers who are covering every base. I think that America was better served when the candidates were chosen in smoke-filled rooms.” (Fox News)
“Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling,” Geffen had said.
The top Democratic dog Hillary Clinton’s campaign responds to the unkindly comments. Clinton Camp to Obama: Cut Ties & Return Cash After Top Booster’s Vicious Attacks. With all that is in Hillary’s past and her husband’s they are actually going to make comments that others should return monies because of vicious attacks. If that is not the pot calling the kettle.
