Hillary, Bill MUST Denounce Obama

"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask rather what you can do for your country." (JFK, Inaugural Address) Two separate columns today (Monday).

"I'd rather lose the presidency than lose a war." (John McCain)

For use in the General Election, it's important to have on hand all statements by HRC and President Clinton critical of Barack Obama -- his inexperience and his use of the "race card" in an attempt to destroy Bill Clinton. Nothing that is said in a campaign -- at least nothing that's not retracted or sincerely apologized for -- can be dismissed as not relevant.

[Note: See the following: ]

I hope the McCain Campaign uses the "3 a.m. red phone call" ad and explains precisely what it means in the context of Sen. Clinton's statement that "I have a lifetime of experience. Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience. Sen. Obama has a speech [questioning the wisdom of the Iraq War] in 2002."

Bill Clinton accurately accused the Obama Campaign -- and the candidate -- of using the "race card" (basically, claims that President Clinton was a racist) to win the nomination. I believe Sen. McCain should use those comments as a centerpiece of his campaign against Obama.

I call on Sen. Clinton -- and I hope everyone else will do the same -- to denounce the campaign of Barack H. Obama. Country must come before Party, frankly, or else it turns politics into the sleaziest game imaginable. As with Sen. McCain in Vietnam and as a POW, country must come ahead of one's "career opportunities." McCain risked both his "career," which clearly meant little to him -- and his life, as President Clinton observed in a memorable speech.

At this point in our country's history, Sen. Clinton has a moral obligation to take steps that probably will destroy her aspirations to become President. It's what I would do, and I believe it's what everyone reading this piece would do. "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask rather what you can do for your country."

Yeah ... that is what has to happen. Hope that all Hillary Supporters for McCain vote for McCain. Especially the women that don't want to have their own voice on abortion and don't feel that they deserve equal payment for the same jobs they do as men. Good luck with this country with McCain as POTUS ... please don't try to win America's respect back in the world. God bless you!
