Negative on Negative

As if the Democratic campaign hasn’t been testy enough as it is, now Douglas E. Schoen says that the way for Hillary Clinton to win is to go even more negative on Barack Obama.

Clinton needs to argue that despite what Obama has said, he has done very little to actually promote and create bipartisan solutions in Washington and that he is, in fact, probably the Senate’s most liberal member. She needs to argue that his values are out of step with voters, as evidenced by his recent comments about why people are religious or seek to own guns. She also must argue that because of Obama’s lack of legislative accomplishments, he is ill-equipped to achieve what he sets out to do.

Let me remind Mr. Schoen that the Republicans already have a candidate and a massive campaign operation already in place, so if your advice is for Hillary Clinton to join forces with the RNC and the rest of the Orcosphere, keep your advice to yourself.
