Barack Obama: "The Chicago Way"
Barack Obama this morning: "I think that Senator Clinton, obviously, is a formidable and tough candidate, and we have to make sure that we take it to them just like they take it to us. I come from Chicago politics. We're accustomed to rough and tumble."
That's exactly what I've been waiting for, I'm down with him giving inspirational speeches about unifying the electorate because its surely a vote getter - but sometimes you just have to chin-check a motherfucker to keep them honest. If it isn't Bill shamelessly lying about Obama's stance on the war, his claim that Hillary is tougher than Nelson Mandela, Hillary suggesting that a vote for Obama will provoke terrorist attacks - or her insulting people's intelligence by giving LBJ most of the credit for the Civil Rights movement - a full frontal political assault is long overdue. Lets see if he learned anything from his days in Chi-town, having Sean Connery giving you political advice can't be the worst thing in the world.
