Danny Diaz, formerly of the McCain camp and now with the RNC, sends out an email blast taunting Sen. Dodd for opposing Mukasey and suggesting Hillary Clinton may not be far behind. He writes in part: “Considering Dodd has come out against Mukasey and will certainly be praised by the liberal left, how long until Hillary Clinton follows suit? If she comes out against Mukasey based on interrogation, her own vacillation on the issue is certainly on the table. ” Let’s hope Diaz’ former boss isn’t going to join Dodd.
UPDATE: Diaz calls to clarify and emphasize that his jibe at Hillary was intended to point out that the issue is particularly difficult for Clinton who has vacillated on this issue. Certainly the RNC was not meaning to take a shot at or raise a comparison to McCain. That said, if the Democrats do intend to go after Mukasey, and Dodd suggests they will, McCain does not want to be on the opposite side of the fight from the GOP in the Senate and the conservative base.
