And other questions in the wake of Barack Obama’s loss in Pennsylvania last night.
1. How low is the candidate of hope and change willing to go?
“In the two weeks leading up to the Indiana primary, a Democratic strategist familiar with the Obama campaign said aides are likely to turn to the controversies of Bill Clinton’s White House years – Hillary Clinton’s trading cattle futures, Whitewater and possibly impeachment,” the Washington Post reports.
“[Obama campaign manager David] Plouffe would not say the campaign planned to address that period, but seemed open to the possibility in the future: ‘The Republicans certainly are going to look at those issues, the Clinton finances, the record issues. We have chosen not to go there.'”
I think you just did.
2. Will John Edwards make an endorsement in his home state of North Carolina?
Not likely, but Elizabeth Edwards apparently will appear at a couple Clinton events (fifth item). The Edwards’ like Clinton’s health care plan better and believe you have to fight – not unite – to achieve policy solutions. They think Obama is naive, but they aren’t thrilled with Clinton’s insider ways.
3. Is John Mellencamp bitter?
Only at the fact that he can’t get on the radio anymore; that’s why he’s playing both sides of the fence these days.
4. Are Indiana and North Carolina really the next battlegrounds?
5. Where’s Oprah?
She suddenly got very, very busy with other things.
