He said Mrs. Clinton is a “woman who is made of steel. She is a leader in this country not because of her husband but because of what she has done.”I am not sure about the image of a woman made of steel? is this how a woman wants to be described....but the second part is classic, it sounds like a complement but it makes you think, is she only here because of her husband.
Ron Wyden, a senator from Oregon who is uncommitted as a superdelegate, is among those who take the more optimistic view that the contest will end in June, that tempers will cool and that voters will come together long before the general election.I hope that even though Obama is the enemy now - there feelings will soften and they will grow to like him. I am afraid this may not be the case among the older white democrats. I think part of this will depend on how strongly Hillary and Bill themselves speak out for Obama and say - don't vote for McCain! Also, Obama bashers have to defend him and realize that there is going to be mud, ugly mud thrown at Obama and the Democrats have to realize that it is 90% crap. The GOP game plan is going to be to turn off the Clinton democrats from Obama. We also have to remind Democrats that McCain is a conservative republican and not some fair moderate independent guy.
