Hard cop, soft cop from the Clintons


“They need to send him out of the country for a long, long time. I am angry at Bill Clinton and I think there are other Hillary people who are angry at Bill, who felt that she was running a very good, solid campaign — she wasn’t the exciting one, but she was the solid one — and then he came in and made it nasty, and single-handedly pushed away black voters.”

— A superdelegate supporting Sen. Hillary Clinton, quoted by the Baltimore Sun, adding the former president “has screwed this thing up for her big-time.”

Maybe. Or maybe that’s just part of the plan. She plays soft cop, he plays hard cop. She apologizes when he gets nasty, promises to rein him in, but doesn’t. Except the plan isn’t working, is it?

Does anyone actually believe Hillary couldn’t shut Bill up if she wanted to? The country deserves better than this.
