Hillary: Outsourced?

April 17, 2008 at 4:26 pm 2 comments

Sen. Hillary Clinton, increasingly desperate Democratic presidential candidate, is trying to tailor a redneck image to attract red-state members of her party upset by remarks from her rival, Sen. Barack Obama, that they like guns and religion and anti-illegal immigration stances because they may be bitter.

Clinton has been downing Crown Royal and talking about her hunting past to woo these voters. (Which is more shameless, denouncing rednecks or pandering to them?) I wonder, however, if this is continuing a losing strategy. As the US keeps hemorrhaging manufacturing jobs, outsourcing American factories to the Third World, the red-staters rhapsodized by Bruce Springsteen and Toby Keith may become a rare, if not extinct, species in this country.

Perhaps Obama is right by focusing on the future instead of a vanishing past. Clinton should pass up the Crown Royal and Smith & Wesson for a latte and a BlackBerry.

    Ddi you watch the debate? Given the admittedly pitiful forum created by the hosts, I thought Hillary did well. Obama…pfft.

    I didn’t see the debate, but I read the New York Times coverage. The Times said that Obama was on the defensive a good part of the night, but it seems like he did fend off Clinton’s Weatherman charge.
