Moo-On Hands Obama An Anchor
Oh, the irony. A group that was formed to save Bill Clinton from impeachment (and failed) is now trying to knockout
Hillary Clinton (and will fail).
Today Barack Obama earned the endorsement of MoveOn, one of the largest grassroots membership organizations in the United States, after clobbering Hillary Clinton by 40 percent in Internet balloting. Obama led the final tally 70.4% to 29.6%, clearing the supermajority required for the endorsement. MoveOn, which has never endorsed a presidential candidate before, boasts that it has 1.7 million members in Super Tuesday states. The group has over half a million members in California alone – roughly one out of ten primary voters in Tuesday's largest state.
Ooooh, they have a big email list, and lots of members. And I'm going to make a rough guess that 70.4% of their members have already signed up with the Obama Campaign. So whom does it help?
That's not too hard to figure out. It helps Hillary, who dodges being smeared by association with the group that financed the infamous "Betray Us Petraeus" ad:
And if Obama somehow manages to defeat Hillary, then obviously it helps Senator John McCain, just as Ann Coulter's endorsement of Clinton helped McCain.
