Democrats should attack Bush

The three main Democratic frontrunners in the presidential race still don’t get it.

During a debate Sunday night, the candidates looked more like characters someone might see on a Sunday morning wrestling program. Former California governor Jerry Brown blatantly accused Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton of funneling business to his wife Hillary’s law firm in Little Rock, Ark. Clinton responded by shouting, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself, jumping on my wife. You’re not worth being on the same platform with my wife.”

Clinton then said he “feels sorry for Jerry Brown, because he reinvents himself every year or two.” And all during their little shouting match, former Massachusetts Senator Paul Tsongas stood by with a stunned look on his face. Tsongas later said he was ready to “break them up.”

Is this a political campaign or a three-ring circus? It’s two days before a major midwestern primary, and the Democratic candidates are appearing on television as a trio of whining lightweights. All the while, President George Bush’s campaign team is gathering dirt on Clinton, the presumed frontrunner.

Brown questioned the validity of Clinton winning the election. Brown has a valid point because all of the mini-scandals surrounding Clinton are going to be a major burden on his campaign.

So, the question remains as to what the Democrats are doing in this campaign. With the economy in such a sorry state, it seems the Democrats could do better.
