Mark Penn’s polling must have shown an untapped opportunity to pander for the childrens’ vote!
Hillary has now become a blogger on HuffPo in a post called “Child Poverty,” where she
Marian Wright Edelman, my friend and founder of the Children's Defense Fund, says it best: "If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much."(Snip)
This is not just an economic problem. It's a moral outrage.I've been working to better the lives of children for 35 years, and the future of America's children will be a centerpiece of my presidency.Now, I have nothing against fighting for kids, but I just have to ask:
The issue is personal for me.
Is it 35 years since you first started working for children, or have you really been working for kids for “the better part” of 35 years? If so, is that in addition to the 35 years you spent working on womens’ issues, and the 35 years you spent traveling the world talking about foreign policy, while preparing to be Commander in Chief? How about the 35 years of paying peoples bills and putting food on their tables?While I don’t doubt that Hillary cares about children, publishing this now sounds like a last ditch effort to get Edwards’ endorsement before Tuesday’s critical primaries, while trying to shore up the “mommy” vote she desperately needs to keep.
How old are you anyway?
It also makes me wonder how many children, whose parents are the low income voters Hillary is targeting, are more likely to go hungry because their parents were compelled to help pay off her $5 million loan so she could continue her flailing campaign by sliming the likely Democratic nominee!
