The Clinton smear machine keeps going, and going, and going....

It's amazing how the Clintons never seem to tire of launching the worst types of attacks upon their opponents. Not matter how filthy or pathetic the politics, the Clintons are more than willing to "go there" if they think it's good for them.

For example, there is the Clinton doctrine that only rich, powerful whites can possibly understand the political interests of African Americans:
Democrat John Edwards on Sunday waded into a dispute between his rivals, criticizing comments by Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband that some have considered disparaging to Barack Obama and black people generally.

"I must say I was troubled recently to see a suggestion that real change that came not through the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King but through a Washington politician. I fundamentally disagree with that," Edwards told more than 200 people gathered at a predominantly black Baptist church.

Sen. Hillary Clinton recently was quoted as saying King's dream of racial equality was realized only when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, while Bill Clinton said Obama was telling a "fairy tale" about his opposition to the Iraq war.
Here's another example:
During the televised interview, Hillary Clinton praised King as one of the people she "admired most in the world," and suggested his record of activism stood in stark contrast to Obama's.

"Dr. King didn't just give speeches. He marched, he organized, he protested, he was gassed, he was beaten, he was jailed," she said, noting King had campaigned for Johnson because he recognized the need to elect a president who could enact civil rights into law.
Conveniently ignored is that fact that Hillary Clinton never did any of those things either; generally speaking, she was too busy cashing in on her golden ticket to the highest echelons of wealth and power to spend much time getting beaten or jailed.
