'It's important you stand up for yourself'

Asked about her cycles of praising Sen. Barack Obama, then cutting him apart this weekend in Cincinnati over his campaign mailings, Sen. Hillary Clinton said, "It's important to stand up for yourself."

Again, she pointed out that Obama's health care plan "would leave 15 million people out."

Referring to a Drudge report photo of Obama in native Kenyan garb, Mrs. Clinton said the email did not originate with her campaign and "that's not the kind of behavior I condone. . . We have no evidence where it came from."

Obama said, "I have a good health care plan. I think mine is better" but 95 percent of their plans "are the same."

Obama said Clinton's health-care plan also may leave 20 percent of the uninsured out.

"Sen. Clinton has, her campaign at least, has constantly sent out negative attacks on us, email, robocalls, fliers, television ads, radio calls and, you know, we haven't whined about it because I understand that is the nature of these campaigns,'' Obama said. "But to suggest somehow that our mailing is somehow different from the kinds of approaches that Sen. Clinton has taken throughout this campaign, I think, is simply not accurate."

Unfortunately for John McCain, who I hold in the highest esteem, the Republican cleansing needs to be complete.

That brings us to Obama and Clinton - Clinton is very, very good - the problem is, Obama is better.

Simple as that.

Thank God for the integrity of McCain - no better candidate could be brought forward for the Republican Party - unfortunately his fellow Republican's greed, waste and corruption has already sold him down the river.

Point in fact: Republican support for Cunningham's tactics

Barack Hussein Obama is an empty suit full of empty promises.
