I have to give a hat tip to El Rushbo for this theory, but it makes sense. Both John Edwards and Barack Obama have now regularly been sending their wives out to attack their opponents, hoping that Giuliani’s leave-my-family-alone statement will hold true for them as well, even if their blushing brides are being overtly political. I personally think they’re giving the ladies all the dirty stuff because they’ll be groveling for the VP slot after primary season is over. Anything is possible.
My money is on the charming fellow on the right. (On the right, not the right-wing)
The latest of example of this comes from Michelle Obama’s comments in Iowa last week:
Michelle said she travels with her husband in part “to model what it means to have family values,” adding “if you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House.” She didn’t elaborate, but it could be interpreted as a swipe at the Clintons.
Oh no you didn’t! Hillary can’t really fight back with this same strategy because as we know all too well, her first lady is all man. So let the cheap shots reign until Hillary takes the nomination. (What, your money was on Edwards?)
Michelle Malkin also picked up on this.
