I can just hear the line from Princess Bride: "Dear God, what is that thing!?"
Not only is this picture horrendous, so is the idea I agree Clinton missed an opportunity against Obama.
WASHINGTON (Aug. 12) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton's top campaign strategist advised her to cast presidential rival Barack Obama as having questionable "roots to basic American values and culture" and use the theme to counter the image that his background is diverse and multicultural.The flag pin, removal from his airplane, etc. would have been a start.
"I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values," Mark Penn wrote in a March 2007 memo to Clinton.
I suppose her temper matches her picture:
Clinton grew angry during a conference call with her senior aides about how to recover from her loss in the Iowa caucuses. She found herself doing most of the post-mortem, to near-silence on the other end of the line.Hag-like.
"This has been a very instructive call, talking to myself," Clinton snapped, and hung up, the magazine reported.
By the way, where do they get shots like these?
