Hillary Flips, Obama Flops!

Hillary Flips, Obama Flops!

By John Lillpop

No one has ever accused Hillary Rodham Clinton of being slow on the draw, or of being too meek for the rough, tough world of presidential politics.

Indeed, having lulled Barack Obama into believing that the party`s nomination is his inalienable birth right, Hillary abruptly switched gears and now says that she might allow her name to be introduced for consideration at the Democrat Convention. *

Hillary`s chicanery came after Obama announced his daily flip-flop, this time calling for full participation by the Michigan and Florida delegations at the convention.

Obama was no doubt seeking to heal old wounds when he declared, "I believe party unity calls for the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be able to participate fully alongside the delegates from the other states and territories," in a letter to the co-chairs of the Democratic National Convention`s Credentials Committee. **

Hmm--wonder why that unselfish thought did not occur to the Anointed One back in April or May?
