Clintons: Obama Is Ken Starr

It's the instinctive Clinton response when they don't have an answer. They always rely on the anti-Republican rhetoric. All criticism of them is a Republican talking point. All resistance to their relentless pursuit of their own power is a function of the VRWC. And so we have Wolfson today:

"When Senator Obama was confronted with questions over whether he was ready to be Commander-in-Chief and steward of the economy, he chose not to address those questions, but to attack Senator Clinton. I for one do not believe that imitating Ken Starr is the way to win a Democratic primary election for president."

We also have another bought-and-paid-for partisan hack reiterating the same old lines:

"What we have heard ever since then from the Obama campaign is a series of personal attacks on Hillary Clinton, and frankly some of them echo Republican charges that have been raised and combated and have failed over the years,'' said Ann Lewis, a senior adviser for the Clinton campaign.

How they desperately want to return to the old red-blue Rove-Morris politics. The only reason the Clintons are still in this campaign is because they have thrown enough dirt at Obama to stay alive.  And yet they will gladly accuse Obama of being the dirt-dispenser, and then play the victim card. If you don't remember the chutzpah and sleaze of the 1990s, then you're getting a crash course.
