What Bill is up to

Dick Morris explains why Bill is in the news such a lot. The gameplan according to Morris:

  • Bill sucks up all the media coverage so Obama does not get any.
  • Bill draws GOP fire so that they are attacking him rather than Hillary.
  • Raise the race issue in advance of Sout Carolina so that if Obama wins he won it on race. Thus negating the value of the win and hoping to trigger a white backlash down the line.

    It makes quite a bit of sense, whether this is the Team Hillary gameplan is another matter. Hillary does not need saturation media coverage, Obama does.
