Hillary slings "mud" at Obama via the hack Robert Novak

Anybody who follows my blog knows that I'm an "aggressive progressive", who does not support Hillary Clinton, but supports the Democratic Party as a whole. Now that is mentioned let me move on. Robert Novak has published absolute rubbish about Obama and has claimed it comes from the Hillary campaign.

Agents of Sen. Hillary Clinton are spreading the word in Democratic circles that she has scandalous information about her principal opponent for the party's presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, but has decided not to use it. The nature of the alleged scandal was not disclosed.
This word-of-mouth among Democrats makes Obama look vulnerable and Clinton look prudent. It comes during a dip for the front-running Clinton after she refused to take a stand on New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's now discarded plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens.
The response from the Obama campaign sets the record straight,
“During our debate in Las Vegas on Thursday, we heard Senator Clinton rail against the politics of ‘throwing mud.’

“The item did not identify these ‘agents,’ nor did it reveal the nature of the charge. It was devoid of facts, but heavy on innuendo and insinuation of the sort to which we’ve become all too accustomed in our politics these past two decades. If the purpose of this shameless item was to daunt or discourage me or supporters of our campaign from challenging and changing the politics of Washington, it will fail. In fact, it will only serve to steel our resolve.

“But in the interest of our party, and her own reputation, Senator Clinton should either make public any and all information referred to in the item, or concede the truth: that there is none.

“She of all people, having complained so often about ‘the politics of personal destruction,’ should move quickly to either stand by or renounce these tactics.

“I am prepared to stand up to that kind of politics, whether it’s deployed by candidates in our party, in the other party or by any third party.

“The cause of change in this country will not be deterred or sidetracked by the old ‘Swift boat’ politics. The cause of moving America forward demands that we defeat it.” The Carpetbagger Report

How convenient. Clinton's slinging "mud" via, Novak. Those GOPer's are trying their hardest to make Hill their '08 competitor against their pathetic Presidential nominees. Obama has the appeal of the masses. Hill represents the "old guard" and the Republicans are comfortable with her. We need a leader who isn't entrenched in the politics of the old. A leader who isn't entrenched in "manipulation Nation".We need "truth in leadership", not the Status Quo. Hillary, Novak, and their dirty tricksters are pathetic.

Anybody, but Hillary, Biden, Giuliani, McCain, Thompson, Huckabee, and Romney in '08. These people do not represent America. They represent the "status quo" and work against the "needs and wants" of the electorate. They are the past...we need a leader to take US into the future. A future full of hope. Hillary is NOT the ONE! nor are the status quo, war mongering, "richie rich" loving Republicans who wish to run against her. She is their "dream candidate"..Not OURS!

Same Players. Different Scandal.
