Hillary v. McCain again

The spotlight shines again on the MSM's anointed 08ers. This time the flap is over a comment made by a Clinton staff member.

Maureen Dowd quoted an anonymous adviser talking about McCain's criticism of the Clintons over their North Korea position.

The adviser said Team Clinton thought McCain was doing the White House's dirty work by criticizing the Clintons and ended up "looking similar to the way he did on those captive tapes from Hanoi, where he recited the names of his crewmates."

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said, "These comments are reprehensible and they in no way reflect Senator Clinton's feelings." McCain spokesman John Weaver replied, "Senator Clinton is correct, the remark was reprehensible."

Last week, McCain took what many saw as the first shot of the 2008 race, blasting Clinton for placing blame for North Korea's recent nuclear test on President Bush - and pointed to husband Bill's policies as a "failure."

McCain and his people handled this perfectly, counter punching team Clinton quickly. A preview of what is to come with him as Mike Huckabee's running mate!

We would be foolish as a party not to nominate McCain to take on Hillary Clinton.

The top issue is Terror and none of the other candidates compare with McCain on this issue.

My first choice is Huckabee, but I think you might be right. McCain is right on the key issue of our lifetime, is tested in so many ways, and his team won't take $%#% off of anybody . . .

but, maybe Huckabee for VP?
