In an interview this morning on CBS‘s “The Early Show,” Senator Hillary Clinton said “Barack Obama is going to be elected the next president and that she has “no doubt” about it.”
Clinton also said that while she recognizes that race and gender play a role in the minds of voters as they make their presidential choices, she believes enough people want change from Republican policies to put Obama over the top in November.
Referencing Republican nominee John McCain, Clinton said that “he has a record of supporting deregulation of business.”
“Barack Obama’s going to win. No doubt … if anybody looks at the mess we’re in today,” she said.
She also said that she thinks Obama is best suited to straighten out the country’s economic problems.
“Barack Obama is being advised by the same people who got us out of the ditch in 1993,” she said. “I think our ticket is well-equipped for handling the mess that theuy’re going to inherit. Let’s make no mistake about it: this is going to be one of the most difficult presidential transitions.”
And speaking of economy and advisors to the presidential candidates, John McCain is surrouding himself with the folks who got us into this mess:
[…] the man Republicans say John McCain has chosen to begin planning a presidential transition earned more than a quarter of a million dollars this year representing Freddie Mac, one of the companies McCain blames for the nation’s financial crisis.
We won’t get out of the ditch with people who put us there advising our next president. Obama has the team that has a proven record to get us out of the ditch, the team that, as Hillary Clinton noted led us out of the ditch in ’93. True change will come with Barack Obama as our next president.
