No More Heroes
Here is a chuckle to start your morning:
The panelists gave voice to lingering disappointment over Halter's failed bid. Adam Green, a co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, had particularly harsh words for Bill Clinton, whose full-throated endorsement of Lincoln is credited with helping her win. "It's tough to see someone you've believed in betray you in a big way," Green said of the former president. "We need to pick our heroes. . . . I think it would be sad if we went through this entire conference without calling out Bill Clinton for what he did."
(Emphasis supplied.) Heh. Harsh words for Bill Clinton from a blogger? Now that's never happened. I wonder if Bill Clinton felt like he was being treated as a "hero" when he was called a racist during the 2008 primaries. Oh by the way, President Obama endorsed Lincoln too.
Of course the real problem is having politician "heroes" in the first place. Pols are pols and do what they do.
Speaking for me only
