While so many liberals were sleep during the 2008 campaign, I wasn’t. I watched how MSNBC and CNN inserted themselves into the fray and support for Obama while trashing Hillary and Bill Clinton every time they could get a chance. What I was was the splitting of a party along racial lines. When the party regrouped, it was behind Barack Obama and Hillary was left to the side picking up the pieces of racial hate that we conservatives go through today.
One piece of video that I witnessed was Chris Matthews who trashed Hillary the day after she won the New Hampshire primary. After this, Matthews went full tilt against Hillary and set up the rest of the campaign for Barack Obama.
MATTHEWS: Look, I think that may be true. I think the Hillary appeal has always been somewhat about her mix of toughness and sympathy for her. Let’s not forget — and I’ll be brutal — the reason she’s a U.S. senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around. That’s how she got to be senator from New York. We keep forgetting it.
She didn’t win there on her merit. She won because everybody felt, “My God, this woman stood up under humiliation,” right? That’s what happened. That’s how it happened. In 1998 she went to New York and campaigned for Chuck Schumer as almost like the grieving widow of absurdity, and she did it so well and courageously, but it was about the humiliation of Bill Clinton.
