Politics: Clinton Style

Desperation.

The six-week Pennsylvania primary drew to a contentious finish Monday as Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton invoked images of Pearl Harbor and Osama bin Laden in a television advertisement that questioned Senator Barack Obama’s ability to lead in a crisis.

As she sought to spark a comeback in the Democratic nominating contest, Mrs. Clinton warned voters not to “take a leap of faith or have any guesswork” when they cast ballots Tuesday.

When you’ve got nothing to say to bolster your own achievements, you cast doubt on the other guy. Classic Clintonianism.

Unfortunately, there’s a certain segment of the electorate that vote out of fear. Mostly it’s misplaced fear, but, it’s fear nonetheless. The Clinton’s know this, and they’ve perfected the politics of fear ever since they conspired to rule together.

Too bad it works.
