Strange Bedfellows

Richard Mellon-Scaife, well-known friend of progressive causes, announces that he has "a very different impression of Hillary Clinton today" than he used to, and "it’s a very favorable one indeed." No doubt he fears that Barack Obama's rhetoric of unity indicates that he may sell out to the right wing once in office. Lanny Davis, Clinton attack dog and Joe Lieberman fan, remarks of Scaife that he "would like to shake his hands for keeping his mind open despite the predisposed prejudice toward her." How nice.
