Bill and the PUMA’s

Here’s a short and good ‘un from Jack Cafferty: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/25/cafferty.clintons/index.html 

It’s not like [the Clintons] have been bending over backwards to help Obama get elected. Bill Clinton has barely been polite. He couldn’t even bring himself to say he thought Obama is qualified to be president. Now, Bill Clinton is reportedly not happy about the topic of his speech Wednesday night.

Politico.com reports the former president wanted to talk about the economy under President Bush compared to his accomplishments during his term in office. The theme for Wednesday night is “Securing America for the 21st Century.” It seems Bill Clinton is forever more interested in reminding us of what a charming guy he was while in office than in acting like one of the leaders of his party and trying to get his party into the White House.

Kind of sad, really.

Yet, Obama’s people have gone out of their way to accommodate the Clintons this week in the hopes of achieving party unity. Obama told reporters on Monday that former President Clinton could speak about anything he likes.

Some of Hillary Clinton’s supporters had threatened to disrupt the proceedings if their candidate wasn’t shown the proper amount of respect. They’re called PUMAs, an acronym for “Party Unity My Ass.” They appear to be a humorless lot who cannot come to terms with the fact that the country didn’t want Hillary Clinton to be president. So they have been throwing a hissy fit ever since the primaries ended.
