Barack Puts the Cackle in Her Place

Carolyn Washburn


When asked a question that was obviously meant to embarrass him in the Democrat Debates held on December 13, 2007 in Johnston, Iowa Barack Obama had the wherewithal to snap back a zinger and give the Cackle a pop right between the eyes!

The infamous Hillary cackle was in rare form when CAROLYN WASHBURN, moderator for the "DES MOINES REGISTER" (the register who incidentally has endorsed the Clinton candidacy): poised this question to Senator Obama,

[Senator Obama] [w]ith relatively little foreign policy experience of your own, how will you rely on so many Clinton advisors and still deliver the break from the past that you're promising voters?
With laughter spilling from the audience and Senator Clinton egging it on with the mocking remark, “I want to hear that!”

Senator Obama delivered a brilliant unexpected and what seemed to be a totally inspired reply. In fact, Obama’s answer was something that Senator Clinton didn’t want to hear! Obama quipped, “Well, Hillary, I’m looking forward to you advising me, as well.”

Whether anyone realizes it or not this somewhat innocuous counterstrike not only turned the tables on Senator Clinton in the debate that night, it has also set off a chain reaction of questions like why aren’t all those former Clinton advisors working for Mrs. Clinton?

Answer. Because they refused too! They don’t want to work for Hillary! You won’t hear Senator Clinton laughing about that.

Senator Obama you missed pointing that little item out but hey no one can think of everything.

That’s the reason for advisers in the first place! Now will someone advise Senator Clinton to give up her nails on the chalkboard cackle!
