Chutzpah Alert

Amazingly, Clinton backers are ripping Mayor Giuliani's personal life.

Yes, people backing the candidate who used to (and still may) specialize in "bimbo eruptions" -- the candidate who chose to stay with (and cheer on) a husband who embarrassed the nation by receiving oral sex from a young, emotionally needy intern in The Oval Office -- actually dare to comment on how Rudy Giuliani's personal life has been conducted.

It wouldn't be attractive if someone like Barack Obama did it . . . but it wouldn't be as ludicrous, given the lack of (known) skeletons in his closet. What next? Joe Biden asserting that another candidate's speeches sound like they've been plagiarized?

What's particularly unforgivable is bringing the Mayor's children into the discussion. Whatever happens between spouses is, at least, between adults. But to pry into parent-child relationships is even sleazier -- and given the pass that the press rightly gave to Chelsea Clinton, particularly distasteful.

Hillary Clinton could put a stop to all this right now. The question is: Will she?

To expect her to put a stop to it would be a mistake. That would be to attribute character to her, and that would be a serious error. She had demonstrated repeatedly that there is nothing that she will not stoop to, nothing is too low for her.

With Hillary's high negatives (over 50%), her only hope is to surpress voter turn out. One way to do that is to create the nastiest campaign possible in hopes of turning voters off entirely. The higher the voter turnout, the more likely Hillary will lose.
