Bill Clinton: Hillary Chummy With McCain
Posted on Jan 25, 2008
Wow, Hillary Clinton’s husband has been très vocal of late, running the gamut of campaign tactics with such alacrity that it almost seems he’s done this before. Bill Clinton’s latest message is one of unity—specifically, between Hillary and the man who could be her Republican rival on the presidential ballot, John McCain.
“She and John McCain are very close,” Clinton said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”
The comments may not be welcome by the McCain camp—which yesterday [Thursday] faced fire from several of its rivals for winning the backing of the New York Times—a longtime archenemy of conservatives.
