Both Hillary and McCain have taken their best shots at Obama in the last three days and he gained two points on Clinton in the latest Gallup Tracking Poll. His response to both of their attacks this afternoon was very strong. Of course it doesn’t help the Clinton’s that Bill said virtually the same words as Obama many years ago. Barack is such a disciplined candidate that my sense is that the McCain folks will begin to worry in a few weeks when he’s able to take McCain on without worrying about Hillary. My favorite part is Barack’s riff on Hillary’s new found love for guns.
“She is running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen, how she values the. She’s talking like she’s Annie Oakley,” Obama said, invoking the famed female sharpshooter immortalized in the musical “Annie Get Your Gun.”
He continued: “is out there like she’s on the duck blind every Sunday. She’s packing a six-shooter. Come on, she knows better. That’s some politics being played by Hillary Clinton.”
