Monster [of a] debate
Now I don’t condone a politician or advisor for batting questions sideways, but when they sometimes speak the truth in a language that the electorate understands why do we then expect them to resign or retract what they have said even after an apology has been made?
If, in the heat of the moment or in a throw away statement, Senator Hilary Clinton is described as being a Monster why are we and the media as horrified as we appear to be?
I do not think that anyone believes her to be a green-eyed-furry-baby-eating kind of monster, we probably do not expect her to be the type of greedy, self obsessed monster that would sent its army into places like Iraq without a plan that goes any further than ‘winning’ the war.
You can be a ‘Monster’ of a politician, meaning bigger and better than anyone else, you could also be described as being a monster because you have already embarked on a course of knocking the other candidate within your own party, leaving the opposition, Republicans, to march onwards relatively unscathed [for now].
The Democratic party in the US are in a unique position in as much that they are about to provide either a Black or a Woman president, provided they stop all the public displays of dirty campaign bickering.
If the Democrats do not go all the way to the White House they have missed out on a Monster opportunity.
