Begala likens Obama's supporters to Dukakis'
Normally, these types spend so much time avoiding the truth that it's kind of entertaining when they swerve into it. That's what Paul Begala did on CNN when talking about the coalition of Obama supporters.
BEGALA: We cannot win with egg heads.
Let me finish my point.
We cannot win with egg heads and African-Americans. OK, that is the Dukakis Coalition, which carried ten states and gave us four years of the first George Bush.
President Clinton - reached across to get a whole lot of Republicans and Independents to come. I think Senator Obama and Senator Clinton both have that capacity. They both have a unique ability well it's not unique if they both have it. They both have a remarkable ability to reach out to those working-class white folks and Latinos. Senator Clinton has proven it; Barack has not yet, but he can. And I certainly hope he is not shutting the door on expanding the party.
Well, he's at least right about Obama's support resembling that of Dukakis. Blacks and effete liberals. Here's hoping it renders the same result in the fall.
