Isn’t this interesting?
Senator Barack Obama will increasingly lean on prominent Democratic women to undercut Gov. Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain, dispatching Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to Florida on Monday and bolstering his plan to deploy female surrogates to battleground states, Obama advisers said Thursday.
Obama’s campaign was caught off-guard when McCain chose Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate and now he needs The Fighter? Please. It seems that the senator from New York is in no rush to come to his aid, can you blame her after he dismissed her candidacy so ever so easily?
Advisers to Mrs. Clinton said that she stood ready to help the Obama-Biden ticket, but they urged the campaign not to overestimate the impact Mrs. Clinton could have, noting that she had other commitments this fall, like campaigning and raising money for Senate candidates. Obama aides said the Clinton trip had been in the works before Ms. Palin was named the running mate.
Better luck never.
