John Deeth Blog: Student Caucus Flap Lowers Tone Of Dialogue
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Democrats spend a great deal of time messaging that they believe in
counting every vote. The pain of the hanging chads still burns in
their hearts, and the battle over photo ID's to vote looms. Which is
why it's so disconcerting to see operatives for Hillary Clinton and
Chris Dodd attacking Barack Obama for encouraging students to caucus.
Sure, there's an advantage for Obama in encouraging kids from Illinois
who go to school in Iowa. Why do you think he's pushing it? For the
same reason Hillary Clinton is pushing casserole recipes at busy moms
and Chris Dodd is campaigning with firefighters. There's votes in it.
