But if we are really talking about hard hitting, we'll go to this frame. Witness what Joe Trippi wrote in an e-mail to Edwards' supporters today:
Today at noon, Hillary Clinton will be hosting a fundraiser in Washington, DC for a select group of lobbyists with an interest in homeland security.
Today's Clinton fundraising event is a "poster child" for what is wrong with Washington and what should never happen again with a candidate running for the highest office in the land.
That no one in the Clinton campaign – including the candidate – found anything
wrong with holding this fundraiser is an indication of just how bad things have gotten in Washington – because there isn't an American outside of Washington who would not be sickened by it."
Sickened! Corporate Insiders! It is a lurid page straight out of the Ralph Nader handbook, and I like it.
This move, however fraught with risk, will undoubtedly catch flack from other campaigns and the parts of the soft-bellied media, but I'm glad to see someone taking the gloves off over an issue like money-for-access.Can't wait for the debates!
