Just For Show

So Hillary was supposed to attend an anti-Ahmadinejad event in NY City- that was, until Sarah Palin was tapped to be there too.

Clinton aides were furious. They first learned of the plan to have both Clinton and Palin appear when informed by reporters.

"Her attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event," said Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines. "Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending."

Surely he meant to say that they had no idea it was to be a bi-partisan event? I mean isn't the Democrat nominee running on a ticket of post-partisan co-operation and an America that isn't Red or Blue but just America?

Or maybe Clinton was just paying lip service to Jewish voters and her appearance was nothing more than a political stunt. If she was truly serious about protesting Ahmadinejad, the presence of a Republican politician shouldn't have put her off.

I think she was afraid of being upstaged by someone who makes her look like a frump.
