Hillary trying to "Jesse Jacksonize" Obama

According to the New York Daily News Hillary's people are going to use Obama's willingness to meet with baddies like Iran's president as a way of making the guy who is very, very popular among Jewish voters look as insensitive to Jewish concerns:
Political observers said they expected Clinton to waste no time using Obama's comment to shore up her standing among key voter blocs, such as Cuban-Americans in bellwether Florida and Jewish voters who may find the idea of a sitdown with the Holocaust-denying president of Iran disturbing.
Team Clinton plans "to use these issues in outreach in the states [and nationally] with Jewish leadership and Jewish grass-roots voters," a Democratic operative familiar with the Clinton campaign told the Daily News.

In a related subject, an entertaining "exchange" between Podhoretz Junior and Philip Weiss on Weiss' blog. BTW his blog which in trying to ignite debate among American-Jews over Israel and Zionism is worth reading.

Appalling. I've been a Democrat for almost half a century but I will never, ever cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. I'd vote for a drunken bum in rehab before I'd vote for her-- far less damage done!

She screwed over the Democratic base on Iraq, but that was just the start-- then she started pushing for an amendment against flag-burning, arrogantly attacking the labor movement *and* now she's trying to work hard to increase H1-B visas to ship off still more US jobs to India. An outrage! I won't vote for her, no matter how much her campaign tries to bribe the American people into doing that.
