In a live CNN interview just now, Sen. Clinton repeated, twice, the "Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience, I have a lifetime of experience, Sen. Obama has one speech in 2002" line. By what logic, exactly, does a member of the Democratic party include the "Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience" part of that sentence?
Is there any precedent for a serious candidate for party nomination to claim that a member of the opposing party would be a better candidate for president than would a member of their own party? Imagine Obama gets the nomination, which is still very likely even after Ohio and Texas. We now have Clinton, one of the powerhouses of the party, on record repeatedly stating that McCain is a better candidate. How can Howard Dean or others not step in at this point and admonish her?
