The latest BS coming from the Hillary camp and their trolls is that Obama can't win the working-class white vote in the coming election vs. John McCain. Nevermind the very uncool fact that many white Hillary supporters won't vote for Barack out of spite and/or race alone. Nevermind the fact that Hillary is so desperate to legitimize her staying staying in the race that she'll come up with an excuse at this point. Nevermind that as recent as 1995, rich, liberal, elitist Hillary Rodham Clinton made it all too clear that she didn't give a flying f-ck about working class whites:
She's proven time and time again that she'll say or do anything to win. If I were Barack, despite what the media thinks, I wouldn't be counting my chickens just yet.
During the past week, Sen. Hillary Clinton has presented herself as a working class populist, the politician in touch with small town sentiments, compared to the elitism of her opponent, Sen. Barack Obama.
But a telling anecdote from her husband's administration shows Hillary Clinton's attitudes about the "lunch-bucket Democrats" are not exactly pristine.
In January 1995, as the Clintons were licking their wounds from the 1994 congressional elections, a debate emerged at a retreat at Camp David. Should the administration make overtures to working class white southerners who had all but forsaken the Democratic Party? The then-first lady took a less than inclusive approach.
"Screw 'em," she told her husband. "You don't owe them a thing, Bill. They're doing nothing for you; you don't have to do anything for them."
The statement -- which author Benjamin Barber witnessed and wrote about in his book, "The Truth of Power: Intellectual Affairs in the Clinton White House" -- was prompted by another speaker raising the difficulties of reaching "Reagan Democrats." It stands in stark contrast to the attitude the New York Democrat has recently taken on the campaign trail, in which she has presented herself as the one candidate who understands the working-class needs.
