Hillary's fangs come out.

Remember when Hillary said with Obama it was time for the fun to begin?

It's begun.

Billy Shaheen, the co-chairman of Hillary Clinton's is just bewildered and perplexed:

Among his concerns about Obama as the nominee, he said in an interview here today, is that his background is so relatively unknown and that the Republicans would do their best to unearth negative aspects of it, or concoct mistruths about it. Shaheen, a lawyer and influential state power broker, mentioned as an example Obama's use of cocaine and marijuana as a young man, which Obama has been open about in his memoir and on the trail.
"The Republicans are not going to give up without a fight ... and one of the things they're certainly going to jump on is his drug use," said Shaheen,


Shaheen said Obama's candor on the subject would "open the door" to further questions. "It'll be, 'When was the last time? Did you ever give drugs to anyone? Did you sell them to anyone?'" Shaheen said. "There are so many openings for Republican dirty tricks. It's hard to overcome."

Gee, he's so concerned. This is so obvious. The Clinton campaign is angry that these questions aren't being asked by the media. They know if they put it out there themselves it will look like a deep personal attack so instead the campaign manager says that these are the questions the Republicans will be asking. He's just so worried about that. It's the Republicans who will play dirty tricks, not us, who just did by saying this.

Remember when Novak said the Clinton campaign had something on Obama and Obama diffused it by saying he wasn't playing that game? The Clinton campaign has something on Obama, but they don't want to be the ones to put it out there and they are just simmering for it to get out.

I think it would be sweet for Romney, McCain, Thompson, Guiliani, and Huckabee's campaigns to all come out and say, "We promise we will not be asking those questions in the general election. We understand Obama's past discretions and considered it done."

Wouldn't that be delicious?
