Bill Clinton’s remarks Friday have created a storm of controversy…what did he mean, if anything? Was he impugning Obama? Is the Obama campaign willfully mis-reading what he said?
The Clinton campaign this morning sent out a "Must Read" blog post from an unlikely source — the National Review.
Kathleen Parker writes "In Bill’s Defense," saying that the Obama campaign’s interpretation is "nonsense."
Parker, who was at the speech in question, writes, "In no way did I interpret Clinton’s remarks as questioning Obama’s patriotism. Clinton was making the case for his wife’s electability against McCain, who, last time I checked, is the presumptive Republican nominee, and her challenger should she win the Democratic nomination. He may have intentionally bypassed Obama in his leap to match Hillary against McCain, but he didn’t say anything that could be construed as questioning Obama’s patriotism.
