Bitter Exchanges in the Primary Could Provide Election Ammunition

Dear Hillary and Barack,

Knock it off, you two! You might be having fun squabbling like a pair of bratty kids, but you need to be careful. The dirt you throw at each other in the primaries could provide ammunition for the Republicans if either of you gets nominated.

I happen to be an Independent and so I can’t vote in the Florida primary. But if I were a registered Democrat, I might vote for John Edwards just to teach you guys a lesson.

It’s tough enough being a woman and it’s even tougher being black so it doesn’t make much sense to handicap either one of you coming out of the gate.

Play nice, children. Remember, the real enemy is waiting for you around the next corner. And he is “loaded for bear”!
