While CNN’s frame in this piece is that Obama is tough, dirty, or a fighter, the real question is one of voter suppression. It is false as CNN’s proclaims this is just how politics is played in Chicago, the sad, hard truth is this is how the Democrats play politics. As both the David Cobb, and Ralph Nader campaigns will attest to the Democrats used these same tactics against them in 2004. The difference here is these Democratic tactics were used in house.
It is very difficult for me to concur with Democratic whining on Republican voter suppression, when Democrats pull stunts such as this. In the end, it really does not matter if the right to vote, or the right to choose a candidate, is taken away, the end result is the same, voter suppression.
