“I think that since we now know Sen. (John) McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters crowded into an infant’s bedroom-sized hotel conference room in Washington.
“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.
Calling McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee a good friend and a “distinguished man with a great history of service to our country,” Clinton said, “Both of us will be on that stage having crossed that threshold. That is a critical criterion for the next Democratic nominee to deal with.”
I can't remember anything like this before. So Clinton has obviously adopted a deliberate strategy of talking up the opposing party's candidate and talking down the other Dem nominee, quite clearly saying that if she doesn't get the nomination then she'll take the party down with her. I can't believe that no one in the DNC is stepping in to say anything. Absolutely shameful on the part of Clinton.
