"No Way, No How, No McCain"
No way, no how, no McCain. . . . Now, John McCain is my colleague and my friend. He has served our country with honor and courage. But we don't need four more years of the last eight years...
Senator Clinton: ... more economic stagnation and less affordable health care...
[More . . .]
Senator Clinton: ... more high gas prices and less alternative energy..
Senator Clinton: ... more jobs getting shipped overseas and fewer jobs created here at home...
Senator Clinton: ... more skyrocketing debt, and home foreclosures, and mounting bills that are crushing middle-class families...
Senator Clinton: ... more war and less diplomacy...
Senator Clinton: ... more of a government where the privileged few come first and everyone else comes last.
Senator Clinton: Well, John McCain says the economy is fundamentally sound. John McCain doesn't think 47 million people without health insurance is a crisis. John McCain wants to privatize Social Security. And in 2008, he still thinks it's OK when women don't earn equal pay for equal work. (AUDIENCE BOOS)
Now, with an agenda like that, it makes perfect sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the Twin Cities, because these days they're awfully hard to tell apart.
Some pundits think the way to gut John McCain is to talk about his seven houses and that he is old or to call him a flip-flopper. Which proves these pundits are so Republicanized, they do not understand how a Democrat can gut a Republican in THIS ELECTION. The way to do it is how Clinton did it - argue that McCain equals Bush's Third Term. It is that simple.
The Obama campaign should have had every speech in this Convention make these arguments. Hillary Clinton demonstrated how it is done.
