Hilary Clinton's Experience

Over the past couple of days there has been a lot of chatter about Clinton's continued attacks on Obama's inexperience. Whenever Obama is mentioned by the Clinton camp, the words inexperienced, not ready or some version of the same is attached. First it was his response to "republican dirty tricks", then it was his economic inexperience and last his lack of foreign policy experience (except living in a foreign country from ages 6 to 10). Obama's response to the economic argument was right on: “My understanding was that she wasn’t Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, so I don’t know exactly what experiences she’s claiming.” She has little to no experience on economic issues and as Maureen Dowd notes, is betting the success of her husband. Mitt Romney has been harping on this for a while now, and it is a line of attack that could work against Clinton, the democrats should not allow her to pass of her husbands successes as her own. And Obama should continue to hit her on that.
