Truce: Clinton, Obama Pull Negative Ads
Earlier today CNN reported that the Hillary campaign has yanked their radio ad in South Carolina hitting Obama for saying the GOP is the "party of ideas." The Hillary campaign is claiming that it was scheduled to come down. Now the Obama campaign has responded in kind with their S.C. ad hitting Hillary for being willing to "say anything" to win. Obama spokesperson Bill Burton tells us: "Once we confirmed that Clinton was taking down her attack ad, we instructed radio stations in South Carolina to take down our response ad."What do I think? I think this confirms that John Edwards has been moving up. Negative ads always knock down both the attacker and the attackee. Edwards seemed too far behind to constitute a threat. Looks like that calculation was wrong. But I must say, all the handwringing about this from the Left blogs and the glee filled attacks on the Clintons by the Media are simply ridiculous. No one was called corrupt. And only Obama challenged Clinton's integrity. [Many of] [t]he Left blogs in particular provided a pathetic display of double standards. They are not to be trusted in this campaign imo. I do not question their integrity. I question their rationality on this. They have a horse in this race - Barack Obama.
