Carl Bernstein: One of Worst Nights of 'Shopworn' Hillary's Life
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/26/2008 7:41:27 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Carl Bernstein isn't just, on the basis of his Watergate-busting fame, a liberal icon. He's also a certified Hillary Clinton expert, having devoted years to researching and writing a definitive biography of her, A Woman in Charge. So his comments tonight on Hillary's graceless reaction to her stunning defeat at the hands of Barack Obama carry special weight, and are likely to reverberate through Dem circles. Here's Bernstein's brutal take, appearing on CNN .

CARL BERNSTEIN: One of the worst nights of Hillary Clinton's life. She had a chance at the end of the evening to be magnanimous, to say something about where her campaign is going to go. Instead she was shopworn, tired; it's exactly what they don't need, the Clinton campaign, and she's going to have an uphill fight from here in.

View the video here, not only to hear Bernstein's remarks, but to watch a graceless Hillary acknowledge Obama's victory only in passing while spending most of the same sentence speaking of primaries to come.

Bill’s specialty is making women “shopworn”

I thought the night she conceived Chelsea was the worst night of her life.

Don’t worry, Mark ... if Hillary gets the Dem nomination, come November Ole Carl will vote for her. She may be shopworn, and he may be a loser, but they are not Republicans!

Bernstein is foolish, this is one more step in the Clinton Adoption of the Southern Strategy, he can mumble whatever he would like.

The MSM will suck up the Clintonaide as soon as Hilde is anointed, make no mistake about it, we need to find our guy pronto.

Doesn't Bernstein know that criticizing Shrillary means that you're either:

sexist
mean to girls
sexist
homophobic
redneck
a Reagan fanatic
a neocon?

It's not that she sucks - it's that YOU have problems.

"I thought the night she conceived Chelsea was the worst night of her life."

That's because the turkey baster got stuck.

I hope the clinton maggots somehow find a way to finagle a win for Hillary and piss off so many Black democrats, who will rightly feel that Obama has been cheated, that they sit out the election in large numbers.

Maybe Carl is just helping to set the stage for another “shed a tear” bounce?

Poor Carl! If Hillary doesn’t get the nomination, think what it will do to his book sales. And he won’t be in demand anymore as a Hillary expert.

And what will happen to poor Sandy Berger, James Carville, Joe Wilson, and the rest of the Hillary whores?

I can’t stand the sight of her, but did not see what was so “graceless” about what she said. On the other hand, she has one grating personality to me.

What was graceless, IMHO, is that she didn’t even manage to spend one full sentence to congratulate Obama. She melded it into a longer riff about upcoming primaries.

Were those comments made right after her speech? I listened to some of it and she did look stupidly graceless. So I’m wondering, seen I turn off the tube before the end of her speech, if Bernstien said that after her rumbling of a speech? If so, hitlery is in deep CACA!

Yes, Gov. OMG, I couldn't believe my ears on that one. Shameful. And she didn't take a breath the whole time.

Yes, Bernstein made his comments after Hillary’s “concession.” Her comments come after Bernstein’s in the video clip, but it was a replay.
