I have been trumpeting my gut feeling that Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton were working beneath the scenes to secretly try to undermine Barack Obama. My reasons for believing this is because Hillary is a very ambitious lady. She wants to be president. She knows that if John McCain is elected she is in position to run as the Democrat front-runner in 2012 against likely Sarah Palin. She also knows that if Barack Obama is elected she must wait 8 years because she would not be able to oust an incumbent president.

Today Bill Clinton told Chris Cuomo of ABC News that the Democrats bear responsibility in the economic crisis because they "resisted any (and all) efforts by the Republican Congress and himself to tighten up the standards on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac." (attached video around the 2:30 mark).

You should know by now that I have well documented Hillary's refusal to go after Sarah Palin despite Obama's plees for her to do so. I have well documented her "less than aggressive" attitude. I said when she pulled her name from the anti-Iran protest due to Sarah Palin's presence that it was a dumb political move for Obama, but not necessarily for her. New polls have shown that Hillary supporters have not fallen in the Obama camp since she left the race, but are still undecided because they are smart enough to know that she is tanking it.

The reality is that Hillary was mistreated by Barack Obama. He was sexist to her just as he has been to Palin. She also felt the wrath of the media and its' smear merchants. Hillary is bitter, but she is smart. She realizes her best way to get back at those who mistreated her is to win the presidency. This would kill two birds with one stone. It would satisfy her aspirations and it would put her in position to avenge those who mistreated her. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Hillary was not the only Clinton that the media and the Democratic Party angered. Bill Clinton was hammered on two sides of the aisle during the primaries. He was encouraged by Hillary supporters to stay away from her campaign. He was smeared by the Obama campaign. I also think former President Clinton was hurt by the media's coverage of Hillary and the overall sexist treatment she received. Now, the media has focused that attention on Palin.

One thing is becoming more apparent every day - the Clintons are NOT "all in" with the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party at the moment. Whether it's Hillary dogging it a bit, or Bill chastising the Democratic Party about the economy, the Clintons realize that in order to get a chance at national prominence again they must dispatch of their most dangerous opponent and his name is Barack Obama and not John McCain.
