Clinton tag-team gets lesson in South Carolina

Not only did Sen. Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton by a 28-point margin in South Carolina, exit polls show that voters have a message for the 'Brass-knuckle Bill' and 'Velvet Shiv Hillary' tag-team: knock it off.

Voters are simply tired of the tone of the debate between Clinton and Obama and, while 56% felt that Obama had unfairly attacked Hillary, a whopping 70% feel Hillary has treated Obama unfairly (see more here).

New Jersey voters are no less smart and no less vocal than South Carolinians, and the message to the Clinton tag-team here should be the same: Knock off the sliming, stop using the race card, and let's get down to issues.

As someone who voted for Bill Clinton and supported him throughout the attacks mounted against him during his White House years, I have come to see why he earned the monicker 'Slick Willie'.

Hillary needs to get him under control and they both need to straighten up and fly right.

They need to remember that Americans' sense of outrage at perceived unfairness is as American as apple pie.

Meanwhile, don't forget that local Obama organizers have a regional rally scheduled for this Monday evening at Rose of Sharon Church (see more here).
