Knives Come Out on the Clinton Campaign

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Yikes. Judging from the New York Observer the last few days, it’s safe to say that things are going to get ugly if the Clinton campaign goes into a death spiral in the next few weeks. For a preview of the anonymous jabs that Clinton insiders will likely take at their leadership, see this article on Mark Penn. The more courageous critics, who are willing to go on the record, will likely be like Leon Panetta — one step removed from the campaign and secure in their careers. Here are Leon’s thoughts.

And while we’re on the topic of news articles that are rough on the candidates, take a look at George Will’s devastating take on John McCain from today’s WaPo. No liberal could say it better.
