Obama has a habit of holding grudges against those who do not support him.Â It’s one of his “Bush III” qualities which raise red-flags about his ability to lead the country.Â Hillary Clinton is one of the victims of Obama’s vindictiveness, so it’s not surprising that she’s not simply parroting his party line on Sarah Palin, McCain’s pick for Vice President:
(CNN) â€“ Hillary Clinton praised the historic nature of John McCain’s vice presidential selection in a brief statement released Friday that was eagerly anticipated by both presidential campaigns.
â€œWe should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin’s historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain,” Clinton, the first woman to win a presidential primary, said in the statement. “While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.â€
Palin directly mentioned Clinton by name in her acceptance speech earlier Friday, saying, “Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America. But it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.”
Clinton’s statement reacting to Palin is markedly different than the Obama campaign’s initial reaction which made no mention of the historic nature of the Alaska Republican’s VP candidacy â€” instead painting her as woefully inexperienced to be commander-in-chief. The Obama campaign later released a joint statement from both the Illinois senator and his running mate, Joe Biden, praising Palin for making history.
Finally, an attractive Vice Presidential candidate!
