Obama Doesn't Hold Grudges   November 11th, 2008
At least not when it helps his party       

 
QUICK OBSERVATIONS

More observations...
 

Obama's spokeswoman said today that, regarding Senator Joe Lieberman, that they don't hold grudges and would be happy to have him continue to caucus with the Democrats in the Senate. However, Obama's campaign did seem to hold grudges before the election when a Florida TV station asked vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden the wrong questions.

"We aren't going to referee decisions about who should or should not be a committee chair," Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said in a statement Tuesday. "President-elect Obama looks forward to working with anyone to move the country forward. We'd be happy to have Sen. Lieberman caucus with the Democrats. We don't hold any grudges."


However, before the election, the Obama campaign said: http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/10/25/obama-campaign-cuts-interviews-florida-tv-station/

Barack Obama's campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions from a reporter at the Orlando station, the Orlando Sentinel reported... "This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign, according to the Sentinel.


Apparently Obama doesn't hold grudges when it's in his best interest not to hold grudges.
