The Clinton/Obama Thing

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton sharply dismissed Thursday a recent suggestion from chief rival Barack Obama that she is “Bush-Cheney light,” telling CNN the comparison is “silly.”

“You know, I have been called a lot of things in my life, but I have never been called George Bush or Dick Cheney certainly,” Clinton told CNN’s John King.

“You know you have to ask whatever has happened to the politics of hope,” Clinton added, in reference to the Illinois Democrat’s familiar campaign theme.

I have to agree with Obama here. Hillary took a cheap shot at Obama, and he retaliated. She knew damn well that he was referring to being open to the idea of facing our enemies, you know like we did with the Soviets. She used it as an opportunity to score some cheap points basically stating she would continue the retarded Bush policy of only talking with our friends.

It sounds Bush/Cheney light to me. You started it Senator Clinton. Is this shot any cheaper than the one you took?
