Spider in a Bouguet of Roses

Bill Clinton is no political novice. Everything he says is calculated and has a direct purpose. Recently he dropped this seemingly high praise on John McCain "She and John McCain are very close," Clinton said. "They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they're afraid they'd put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.".

Is there any real chance that a general election would be civilized? How is hearing this going to play with Republican leaders that are hoping that a Clinton nomination would energize the base to make gains in Congress?

Clinton's remarks of praising McCain is meant to further undermine him with Republican establishment because McCain is the GOP's only hope of winning in November. Does anyone think Huckabee could win? What about Romney? No chance for either. But the more compliments Bill showers on McCain, the less likely he will get support from an already suspicious party.

Clinton is a pro at campaigning, everything is said with a purpose and a chance to undermine a future potential opponent by heaping praise on him is very shrewd.
