New Clinton Tactic?

With the approach of the Potomac Primaries, the Clinton lost their manager, Patty Solis Doyle, who resigned to spend more time with her family. Why do all politicos use that lame excuse? They have no intention of spending more time with anyone but the campaign.

Most news shows are reporting this as a show of the confusion in the Clinton campaign. They are changing the brain module in mid stream. But as usual I see it as something different. Yes, the Clinton campaign is having money probs and yes the campaign has lost 5 contest in a row. And yes, the March 4th primaries are not looking good for them either. And of course, Bill has been a thorn in their butts, but he has toned down his crap a bit.

In short, the media has not been kind to the Clinton campaign in the last 7 to 10 days. Reporting every little detail of their movements and such. IMO, this change at the top is little more than a political ploy, trying to gain a little wiggle room in the media. thyey are hoping that the media will focus on the new leader and that their probs will become secondary, at least for awhile.

The campaign has all but conceded every contest to Obama and are focusing on Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania. (thinking...thinking...) This sounds vaguely familiar. Oh yeah, was this not the tactic of Giuliani? He was looking for a firewall and a boost in his standing. And how did that work out for him? I think he is no longer a candidate.....tee hee.

Clintons are scrambling and scrambling hard looking for a way to stop the amazing surge of Obama. They are putting all their eggs in the basket of blue collar workers, those working poor and the less educated. They seem to have a strong standing with these people.

If it works they are a genius for their tactic, but they also could find that the Giuliani effect will bite them in the butt. Putting all your eggs in one basket is a dangerous political tactic. Just ask Rudy boy.
