Clintons Take Note: This is How Its Done

When an Obama adviser, retired Gen. McPeak, dropped the M (for ‘misogyny’) bomb on Hillary and said:

Obama “doesn’t go on television and have crying fits; he isn’t discovering his voice at the age of 60” — references to Clinton’s much-publicized show of emotion during the New Hampshire primary campaign and her speech after winning the contest in which she declared that she had “found my voice.”

Obama did this.

Class, style, grace, and political savvy. I’m digging Obama more and more everyday.

Maybe the famed Clinton War Room should have focused on recovering from its own mistakes and not just on responding to attacks.
