The Clinton and Obama Campaigns


FORTHURSCOLOR.gif

After the North Carolina and Indiana primaries, we all watch in fascination, some of us in horror, as Hillary Clinton refuses to read the writing on the wall. Depending on your point of view, she is either to be admired for her toughness and resilience, or vilified for her selfishness and egotism.

I particularly enjoy this colorful image, which I snagged from the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza's blog, The Fix: "Nor are there many among unaffiliated Democratic consultants who believe she is ready to bail out. 'She is the Japanese soldier in the Pacific island that hasn't been told the war is over,' said Democratic pollster John Anzalone. 'Occasionally she picks off a few islanders and considers it a victory. Well, yesterday she found out the war was over.'"

I only disagree with the last sentence.

Your Hillary likenesses are getting quite skillful. This one really captures her. Sure you don't want her to win, from a purely artistic viewpoint?


But what does McCain say? What do you mean McCain who? Is the nation so focused on the Democratic primary that the other party is getting ignored? Is it that bad?...
...excuse me, is that bad?


I just don't know what's wrong with you Floridians. We watched Bush steal the votes in 2004...now they want to do it again and not count your votes at all. If I went out to take the time and vote only to hear it may not count for a rats @ss, I'd be campaigning for that.. Wake up Florida and speak your mind !!!


Jennie P--
ALL of us in Florida knew that our votes
wouldn't count BEFORE we voted.
That's why many of us are quite
committed to "playing by the rules."
We broke the Party's rules because
we wanted our voice to be heard
sooner, rather than later, and understood
the consequences of our actions.


No matter which way you slice the cake, It's everyone's Constitutional right to have your vote counted....TOO many back door deals....

What totally BOGUS logic. Hopefully, this was written in IRONY and not serious.


Nice cartoon, but would prefer to see Obama doing something besides standing frozen stiff in front of Hillary the TORCHBEARER!
LOL. Obama strikes us as much more DYNAMIC than this drawing implies.

Nice caricatures.
