Did Bill Deliberately Sabotage Hillary's Campaign?

This guy at the Agitator thinks so.

Clinton had to have known that marginalizing Obama wouldn't work. He knows Obama is a talented politician, that he isn't a demagogue like Jackson, and that he has already demonstrated that he can attract white voters in large swaths-Obama certainly didn't win Iowa by dominating the black vote, did he?

So why would Clinton do it? Well, maybe he doesn't want his wife to be president.

They don't come much more alpha male than Bill Clinton. The guy's a walking erection. I can't imagine anything more emasculating to an alpha-alpha like Bill than to watch his wife arc over him-for her to become more powerful than he. Actually, it's quite a bit worse than that. Hillary Clinton was on the verge of not only becoming more powerful than Bill, she was ready to become the most powerful person on the planet. Not only that, she was about to do so by assuming the very office Bill once held, but (probably) won't ever hold again. Bill, on the other hand, would be relegated to first lady. I can't see how that wouldn't mess with the psychology of a guy like Clinton.

More to support my theory: It's pretty clear that Hillary Clinton's reputation and public image have never been of much concern to Bill Clinton. He has publicly humiliated his wife over and over and over again, then counted on her to stand by him in the interests of his career-at which point he inevitably turns around and humiliates her again. It isn't all that hard to believe that a guy who's alpha enough to risk his entire political career and presidential legacy for a few hummers from a pudgy intern might subconsciously sabotage his wife's ascent to power, is it?

He also thinks Bill's comment that Hillary and John McCain are good friends and would have a very civil contest was an effort to undermine his wife's campaign because the true blue Democratic base doesn't take kindly to fraternizing with the GOP presidential candidate. That I don't quite buy as much as his argument above. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Bill subconsciously undermined Hillary's campaign. He is shockingly self-consumed, and people who are as self-consumed as he don't give a whit about the feelings, wants, or needs of even those closest to them.

Jeff:

Obama is a talented politician ?

The man has never run in a real race ... his state senate seat was essentially unopposed and his US Senate run was barely a race.

Talk about untested ... Bill was probing this untested child ...

When Hill/Bill goes on the attack next time expect that they will have found the soft underbelly of that talented con man ...

Bottom Line:

It looks like you got some vote fraud hankypanky, and selling of votes going on in the democratic caucuses. Obama seems to be doing disproportionately well in the caucuses where it is easier to commit vote fraud, and sell votes. Obama has not been doing as well in the non caucus primary's where you can't cheat the vote as easily.

I smell a pole cat. I smell the Karl Rove vote fraud machine at work. This looks like past presidential elections where most voters leaving the poles said they voted for the other guy. But Bush still won. No wonder Obama thinks the republicans have some good ideas. Apparently a lot of republicans are voting for Obama in the democratic caucuses.

The insurance companies, and medical industry that have been ripping you off, and killing you are determined to keep you, the American people from having good universal health care. So it seems they are supporting Obama. Along with the republican vote fraud machine.

This looks like a great story for a team of aggressive investigative reporters. Or maybe some good documentary film makers like Michael Moore, or Oliver Stone.

If I were the Clinton's, I would focus like a laser bean on what has been going on in the democratic caucuses. No wonder the Republicans like Obama so much. Looks like he's their man in the democratic caucuses.

I'm absolutely convinced now that Hillary Clinton is your best choice for good universal health care coverage. And HR 676 (Medicare For All). "Single payer, Tax Supported, Not For Profit, True Universal Health Care" free for all as a right. Like every other developed country in the world has. See: http://www.house.gov/conyers/news_hr676.htm

"HR 676:
For church goers: less money to insur. companies and more to the church- lots more.
Srs on Medicare: save way over $100/wk. Because no more medigap, long term care & dental insur. needed. No more drug bills."

JLawson:

"They really think you are all stupid, inattentive cash cows... It may be time to bring back Bill."

Because he KNOWS that the vast majority of Dem voters ARE stupid, inattentive cash cows - that no matter how badly a Democrat performs, no matter how many campaign promises never get acted on, no matter WHAT the Democrat does in office (with the exception of Cynthia McKinney, and even there it took her party abandoning her in favor of another Democrat) there's always someone stupid and gullible enough to pull the switch for them again, and again, and again....

They're predictable. And they'll forget about all the broken promises. And they'll flock to the polls to go Democrat again.

Please God, make him stop. He's killing me.

"They don't come much more alpha male than Bill Clinton. "

please, bill clinton an alpha male? he comes across as a gay male trying to fool people hiding behind a promiscuous heterosexual persona. would you be intimidated by his obviously phony bluster and bravado. i dare say most self-confident males would laugh in his face if confronted by his red-faced, head bobbing, finger jabbing. i'm not saying he's gay, only a girly man like so many leftist, liberal and socialist males - john kerry, john edwards, harry reid, barney frank, howard dean, algore (examples off the top of my head)

I thought Bill's comment about Hillary and McCain was designed to sabotage McCain and keep Romney in the race.
