Hope For Hillary?

As those of you who read my posts know, I am a pretty fair-minded and logical guy...so consider the following within that context.
For those of you out there who are still hoping for the 30 points miracles in TX and OH I want you to consider how YOU would react if the Obama campaign (or any other rival campaign) put out a picture designed to make the uninformed public believe that Hillary was a radical feminist or a picture of her shredding a document?
You folks would rightfully be OUTRAGED that someone would take a picture reframe the context to passively suggest something that feeds into the smears the GOP uses against her. AND what's more..I'd support your outrage.
Please have the intellectual integrity to admit that. By shrugging this off as no big deal or simply as part of the "vetting" process is disingenuine.
This is a last ditch, scorched earth attempt to try to drum up as many points as possible. And in so doing, she is threatening the integrity of the Clinton brand, her role in the democratic party, and her husband's role on the world stage. Further, suggeswting that it is "her campaign, not her" is also a vapid statement. Is she in charge of her campaign or not?
Folks, I have maintained a real even-handed attitude, even with the disprortionate amount of pro-HRC posting here (often to the detriment of logic-based debate), but to support these tactics is beyond the pale. Mailings with debate-worthy talking points are one thing, quasi racist or something that plays on social fears is quite another..and you all know it.
No end justifies these sorts of means.
I can only hope that she has reassured her big donors enough that she can pay off her 5 million dollar loan with these attacks and come the 5th of March she will apologize for this, and exit gracefully. But in the meantime...she will pay for these tactics.
The Obama voluteers are already a dedicated, if not obsessive bunch...to feed them this kind of red meat will only increase the level of work they pu out, AND will cause the MSM to paint her as even MORE desperate.
