Campaign Slogan Proxy War

From NewsBusters.org

In a final flurry of frantic campaigning on the day of the hotly contested Pennsylvania Primary, both hopefuls knock hard on each other’s campaign slogans in an effort to discredit each other’s bid for the Democrat presidential nomination.  “It’s not enough to say ‘Yes we can.’, ” decries New York Senator and recovering duck-and-cover performance artist Hillary Clinton in a direct assault on Barack Obama’s audaciously hopeful refrain, “We have to say how we can.”

Official Clinton campaign sources are reportedly mulling over the 34th change to Clinton’s own campaign slogan to capitalize on the crowd’s warm response to her attack, contemplating a move from “I’m in it to win it.” to “How can we?”  This apparent instability of message is chalked up as a strength, mirroring the rapid and revolutionary transformation of society promised by the candidate.

By contrast, staunchly firm and rigidly unwavering in his rock-solid, time-tested and changeless motto “Change we can believe in”, Obama, Senator and Trinity United Church of Christ absentee from Illinois, defended his slogan by noting how new and fresh his politics of bitterness were.  “I’m asking Pennsylvanians to believe,” he reaffirms, “in me so they don’t have to cling to guns or religion.”

  1. She’s the most effective individual to deal with foreign affairs, which will be the most important issue of this race in the end. How can we fix our economy without better foreign relations? Clearly, we cannot. Globalization insists upon improved relations and returning the US to it’s pre-Bush standing.

    This will be the fourth attempt for Obama to knock Clinton out of the race. He’s been incapable of doing so, which demonstrates his lack of feasibility as a candidate.

    There are good reasons why the superdelegates should ignore the Obama Campaigns cries for all Superdelegates to swing for Obama and instead endorse Mrs Clinton. There’s no question that superdelegates will consider electability as a factor in deciding whether to vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. Clinton CAN beat McCain in November. Obama cannot if he is on the ticket as President. Him as VP is a different story: http://clintonista.wordpress.com/
