In what has to be filed under the category, 'Let's shoot ourselves in the foot even though we're winning', Republican Christine Todd Whitman blasts President Bush for not reaching out to states coloured blue.
She must have consulted Joe Clark on how to sabotage a perfectly good conservative movement.
In almost typical Red Tory fashion, she criticizes Bush for a divided nation in a book to be released on the eve of the presidential inauguration. Now, I don't know about anybody else, but that decision seems awfully divisive to me. For someone who believes in the value of bringing people together, Whitman sure knows how to tick people off, doesn't she? And she will tick a lot of people off in the Republican Party.
What is it about so-called moderate conservatives that they act as though fellow conservatives are the enemy? If they dislike them so much, why not join the other side? Or, as Canadians have learned with Clark, maybe you don't have to join the other side in order to join the other side - nudge, nudge, wink, wink.....
