Clinton Camp Accuses Obama of Downplaying PA

The Clinton campaign just held a conference call to accuse Barack Obama of downplaying Pennsylvania even though winning there would be critical to Democrats’ chances of taking back the White House in November.

Clinton strategist Mark Penn delivered the cringe-worthy line that, “The path to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave goes through Pennsylvania.”

Penn accused the Obama campaign of “turning their backs on Pennsylvania” and if Obama loses in the state it “raises serious questions about whether he can win in the general election.”

He also emphasized that it is the last state remaining with over 15 electoral votes, which struck me as an irrelevant fact.

Gov. Ed Rendell was also on the call, and he said Obama was “downplaying the importance of Pennsylvania.”

Also, when asked about Clinton’s high unfavorable ratings, he predicted that they would go down 10 to 15 points over the course of a general election as more people get to know her, and he claimed that Republican women he knew were now flocking to Hillary.
