Hillary Takes Heat off of McCain

The antics of the Hillary campaign has easily distracted the media from talking about John McCain. Last night we all saw the photo of Obama with the traditional African garb (over khakis and a golf shirt) and hardly scant reporting on McCain.

I wouldn't be surprised if the McCain camp is stirring all of this up just to keep the focus on Hillary and Obama, but I don't think McCain is that clever. He loses, remember?

Hillary's campaign claims they did not send the photo to Drudge but they couldn't say one of the staffers did. John Edwards stepped in it big time when two of his blog advisers turned out to be vocal. I am unsure if Hillary is getting a pass or not, I don't think so. The second thing out of the mouths of the anchors last night was "Hillary" and the questioning of her motives.

But at the end of the day, it is McCain who is benefiting.

Not Hillary, not Obama, not the Democrats and certainly not democracy.
