Months ago, Mitt Romney and his campaign team adopted a curious strategy. Hoping to undermine President Obama, Republicans would elevate former President Clinton, giving him unrivaled credibility and stature, as a way of positioning him as the good Democrat, as compared to that rascally Obama.I'd suggest that "curious" might not be a strong enough word for that strategy. But you do have to wonder what the hell the Republicans were thinking. Perhaps they figured that Democrats are as inept as they are in healing old wounds and that because of his past with President Obama, Clinton would allow them to play him that way.
As was clear last night in Charlotte, Romney's plan was a spectacularly bad idea.
After last night we know that they made a very serious miscalculation. With the mantra they themselves gave Clinton as the "good Democrat," he just eviscerated their entire reason for being...point by point. And they only have themselves to blame if the American voter takes him at his word.
Now that that's done...bring on that "rascally Obama!"
