Clinton Strategist: Obama Gaffe "Fair Game"
By Big Tent Democrat
Speaking for me only
Greg Sargent has a terrific interview with Clinton strategist Geoff Garin that demonstrates that the Clinton campaign will be discussing Obama's gaffe for the foreseeable future:
Hillary chief strategist Geoffrey Garin dramatically raised the stakes in the battle over Barack Obama's comments about small-town America, saying in an interview that they would be "damaging" to him in a general election, could set back the Democratic Party's efforts to reach heartland voters, and should be something that super-delegates consider when deciding whom to support.
Read the whole thing. Good work from Sargent. My own view is that the Clinton campaign is being too aggressive on this story. The Media hates Clinton and loves Obama. They should have let McCain take the lead on this. Clinton should not make herself a big part of this story.
