When referring to speeches by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton has regularly delighted in saying,” words means nothing, it’s action that counts”. The implication being, that her words mean something, but not those of her opponent. In the Clinton world, as we have witnessed, if it takes threats, lying and other forms of deception to achieve her goals, so be it. For Hillary Clinton it’s just politics, – and anything goes.
However the cat jumped out of her psychological bag once too often on Friday when in an interview with the editorial board of the Argus Leader in South Dakota, Clinton raised the issue of Bobby Kennedy’s assassination in the month of June to explain why she should remain in the campaign longer. This is not the first time she has referred to Kennedy’s assassination publicly, in fact she has done it on at least four separate occasions since March 6th. Until Friday she has gotten away with it – scott free.
However things are about to change. This time the camp followers in the media took exception, were personally outraged and hit the phones. In this the real world as the inevitability of her defeat begins to sink in, her desperation – as the Governor of New York, a Clinton fan and super delegate, acknowledged – is beginning show. In the editorial board interview she again floated the “unchallenged” idea (what is wrong with these media people? – can’t they add up or understand simple rules?) that she was leading in the popular vote, and for that reason and other Clinton myths, it was important that she fight for the Party nomination all the way to the convention.
Clinton’s remarks about Bobby Kennedy suggested that staying in the contest left open the opportunity to take advantage of a possible mishap or tragedy. She denies this, as she does everything, however this clearly says that her thoughts are so focused on how to remove this detested nomination obstacle, namely Obama, she has inadvertently allowed the world an unmistakeable insight into the workings of her machivellian mind.
It reveals just how much she hates the idea of being beaten in her attempt to secure the Presidency and how deep down she wishes Obama would stop his campaign, or somehow be stopped in order for her to realise her objective. She couldn’t care less as to how this might be achieved as was demonstrated by her shallow apology to the Kennedy family but not to Barack Obama or his family.
As a result of her repeated public musings on the subject of assassination, Clinton is now irreparably exposed and damaged. Her’s is an obsession out of control and it places Barack Obama in even greater peril. The Democratic Party leadership needs to call on all uncommitted super delegates to act responsibly and collectively to endorse Obama and end the Clinton bid. The Clintons’ do not own the Democratic Party. Though they behave as if they do.
It is time for the Democratic Party to say to the Clintons – We have our Nominee!
