Quit Your Whining, Slick Willy

Bill Clinton is upset that his wife's attempt at cornering the Vegas culinary union vote backfired:

At a stop in Oakland this afternoon, President Clinton vigorously defended a lawsuit challenging Nevada's decision to permit casino workers to join presidential caucuses at their workplaces, even as he denied that he or his wife's campaign had anything to do with the litigation. He argued that the casino caucuses were deliberately set up to have a disproportionate impact on the outcome of the contest.

"Do you really believe that all the Democrats understood that they had agreed to give everybody who voted in a casino a vote worth five times as much as people who voted in their own precinct? Did you know that?" Mr. Clinton said in a testy exchange with a television reporter, Mark Matthews of KGO. "What happened is nobody understood what had happened. ... Now, everybody's saying, 'Oh they don't want us to vote.' What they really tried to do was to set up a deal where their votes counted five times, maybe even more."
Raise your hand if you think Clinton would have been so appalled had the union endorsed Hillary. The rules have been in effect for months and two days after the endorsement, another union who supports the Shill files suit. Hmmm...I'm just not feeling any empathy for Bubba in his battle to disenfranchise minorities.

The Clinton's are feeling pressure to be sure and it's coming to a head. If Obama beats Hillary in Nevada and South Carolina, they'll be in full melt-down mode. I can't wait for that cataclysm.
