Clinton is begging to go head-to-head with Obama in an Lincoln-Douglas style debate (no moderator, just questions and answers for 90 minutes).

What an ideal way for Obama to shine in the spotlight and put this fiasco to bed once and for all.

But the Obama “campaign” is saying, “No thanks.”

Obama aides said he had already debated Clinton 21 times, “the most in primary history.”

Winners take hold of the win when it’s in their grasp. Hillary is putting herself out there. Obama can’t turn away from this invitation to smoke his rival.

Grab the victory, Mr. Obama.

Hillary Rodham Clinton apparently lives in a fantasy world – one in which she can make up the facts to suit her needs.

The most recent case is her recollection of a little plane ride into Tuzla, Bosnia 12 short years ago. As HRC recollects that visit abroad, she states on more than one occasion, that she dodged bullets and ran for cover with her head down when the plane landed.  Truth is, she was greeted on the tarmac by Bosnian leadership, U.S. military commanders and an eight-year-old girl who read a poem and gave Hillary a hug.  No sniper bullets zinging by her helmet-less head.

The New York Times covered the story and chain of events in details here.

Her campaign spokespeople are now back peddling on the story, explaining that as the plane was preparing to land everyone was “advised” that they would be landing in a dangerous area that might be prone to sniper fire. Hillary just mis-stated the order of events. Oh pul-eeze!

Are we so f-ing gullible that the Hillary campaign really thinks we’ll swallow this line of s*it? Does the Clinton campaign really think we believe that back in ’96 a plane full of U.S. dignitaries, including the first lady, would land in a hot zone and be at risk to sniper fire?

Sinbad and Sheryl Crow were at the party that day in 1996. Sinbad says his biggest fear was not knowing where his next meal was coming from while he was entertaining U.S. soldiers stationed in Bosnia.

I’m sure in Clinton’s head, she ate her share of MREs throughout the entire trip.

Yeah. Really.

If my mind wasn’t made up a week ago, it is signed and sealed now.

Billary has come slashing at Barack following a stump speech in which Obama used some familiar words by his friend, Massachusett’s Governor Deval Patrick. The Financial Times reports on the story, but in a nutshell, Mr. Obama said:

Don’t tell me words don’t matter,” Mr Obama said in the passage borrowed from Mr Patrick. “I have a dream – just words? We hold these truths to be self-evident – just words? We have nothing to fear but fear itself – just words?”

BillaryBillary took issue with Obama’s using the excerpt from a speech made two years ago. Billary. The “let’s make this campaign all about the issues,” candidate. The “I’ve got the experience to win,” candidate. The “Words in speeches are just words. I’m the candidate who will actually DO something in office,” candidate.

I’m humored because, my friends, what do animals do when they’re angry and injured? They lash out. They go into defense mode, bite and claw at anything and everything that gets within reach. Billary is in defense mode. She’s losing ground. She’s fading. And, like any bad candidate will do, she’ll get in the ditch and start shoveling shit until she can no longer keep up with the sewers.

She’s gonna be up to her nose in it. And meanwhile she’s losing the votes that she had in a lock just months ago – women in their 60s.

Yep. My mind is made up. Billary is just another politico. Hope for change? Making a difference? Restoring some pride in the U.S.? Politics not as usual? It starts and ends with one candidate.

My blog posts on politics are few. Plenty of pundants exist in the world to cover this election year and its ensuing results. God bless the political bloggers one and all, because it’s a god-awful task to follow all this subterfuge, pining and posturing.

But today, I’ll note John Edwards and his decision to withdraw from his bid for POTUS.

It’s time for me to step aside so that history can blaze its path. We do not know who will take the final steps to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but what we do know is that our Democratic Party will make history. We will be strong, we will be unified, and with our convictions and a little backbone we will take back the White House in November and we’ll create hope and opportunity for this country.” -John Edwards.com

Edwards realized he had “no real path to the nomination and it was time to step aside,” a spokesman for the doomed campaign told the media earlier today. Let’s face it, nice guys finishing third in their home state primary don’t have much hope to win a nomination for anything except the “Nice Guy” Award. Couple that with a platform that’s about as milk toast as it gets and Mr. Edward’s decision was pretty easy to make at this juncture. While unfortunate for the lack of interest future televised debates will bring having one less candidate on the dais, his removal from the campaign does give clarity to the Democratic side of the race.

My Independent, Democrat and dysfunctional Republican friends, you now have a choice between two remaining front runners who will no doubt go well into Spring kicking each other in the chin: Billary and Barack.

Mrs. Clinton obviously has her own problems to contend with as her campaign falls into the late January deep freeze – namely her husband’s angry mouth. Someone please dial Monica for her thoughtful lips tips on how to shut that pie hole of Bill’s.

Barack, on the other hand, clearly has momentum going into February. Not that Senator Kennedy’s public backing is all that, but let’s face it, the cash drawer on the Obama campaign just got filled to the brim. In fact, I doubt the campaign volunteers can possibly count all the money, let alone spend it fast enough.

Seems that, like it or not, America is up for change when it comes to who gets the key to the White House next January.

And as Sheryl Crow so aptly taught us, “…A change will do you good.”
