    Bill Clinton says Dems shouldn't attack Palin


    Bill Clinton says Dems shouldn't attack Palin
    Posted: 07:40 AM ET

    From CNN's Alex Mooney


    Bill Clinton said Dems shouldn't attack Palin.
    (CNN) — Bill Clinton said Monday the Democratic ticket should steer clear of launching personal attacks on Sarah Palin over her relatively thin resume, and instead acknowledge she was a "good choice" for the No. 2 spot on the GOP ticket.

    "Why say, ever, anything bad about a person? Why don't we like them and celebrate them and be happy for her elevation to the ticket? And just say that she was a good choice for him and we disagree with them?" said Clinton, who faced repeated charges during the primary season he was overly negative toward Obama on the campaign trail.

    Clinton's comments appear to echo advice Karl Rove gave to Barack Obama in his regular Wall Street Journal column last week, when the former Bush strategist noted attacking the VP candidate has rarely proven to be an effective strategy.

    In one of the former president's few extended comments to date on Palin's surprise VP candidacy, Clinton also told reporters in New York Monday he knows why the Alaska governor is attracting massive crowds on the campaign trail.

    "I come from Arkansas, I get why she's hot out there," Clinton told reporters in New York, according to the Associated Press. "Why she's doing well."

    "People look at her, and they say, 'All those kids. Something that happens in everybody's family I'm glad she loves her daughter and she's not ashamed of her. Glad that girl's going around with her boyfriend. Glad they're going to get married,'" he said.

    Referencing Palin's 5-month old child who has Down Syndrome, Clinton also said voters will think, "I like that little Down syndrome kid — one of them lives down the street, they're wonderful children.”

    Earlier Monday, Clinton suggested his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would have been a better political choice for the Democratic VP spot than Joe Biden.

    “She would have been the best politically, at least in the short run, because of her enormous support of the country,“ he said on the daytime talk show The View.










    Don't listen to him. Please keep attacking

    Living in Alaska, Palin was about as far removed from the 'American' experience as one can get. But, that's not an attack...

    Why is that? Alaska is America's last great frontier, settled by pioneers who went there to better themselves through gold, salmon, lumber and oil. Alaska is the quintessential American experience.

    Exactly!

    That's why she had a $35k tanning bed installed in the governor's mansion, wears $700 frames, and advocates shooting moose from helicopters.

    PEOPLE IN MIDDLE AMERICA CAN LIKE TOTALLY IDENTIFY WITH HER!!11!

    I think the point is middle america would not relate regardless.

    However, there is not one of the 4 that are relateable to the average American IMO

    Do you respond to anything favorably other than the far right sh*t on this bodybuilding board. btw, John McCain wears $570 Ferragamo shoes. If you can afford it, why not. However being a child of relative privilege, he knows very little of how regular folks live. That being said there are many pols on both sides that this could be said of.

    Actually, look through my post history there square pants. I predominantly (sp?) post in threads other than political bullsh*t. You must have misread my previous statement.

    BTW, I don't care about any of the front runners of this race. John McCain can eat with a damn golden spoon while wiping his ass with 6 ply, and it wouldn't matter to me. As much as I could care less if McCain was in, Obama would be much worse.

    Time to buy you a new thinking cap.

    Are you accusing me of being Spongebob Lighten up Captain. If the truth be known, I could give a burly rats a$$ who you or for that matter anyone on this board is voting for. I just enjoy the banter. Carry on
