Clinton: Obama’s Too Liberal

Posted on

Hillary Clinton’s campaign seems determined to convince Barack Obama’s detractors in the blogosphere that he is so a liberal after all:

Hillary’s aides point to Obama’s extremely progressive record as a community organizer, state senator and candidate for Congress, his alliances with “left-wing” intellectuals in Chicago’s Hyde Park community, and his liberal voting record on criminal defendants’ rights as subjects for examination.

Progressive record? Heaven forbid! I thought he didn’t have experience.

The Tom Edsall article I got that from is well worth reading for his rundown of the GOP field as well.
