This is what Rothschild thinks about Senator Barack Obama's chances of winning the presidency: "
My loyalty is to the Democrats winning. Barack Obama is going to have a serious problem getting elected, for good reason. “The party needs to face the fact that without Hillary Clinton on the ticket, the Democrats will probably lose.”
This is why she says she is against Barack Obama:
“We’re not going to win by pretending problems with Barack Obama don’t exist. He has a huge problem connecting with ordinary Americans, who think, ‘He doesn’t understand me.’ He is not modest; he is arrogant. He radiates elitism.”
Now, of course, the idea of a woman who apparently is the trophy wife of a titled Brit telling us that Obama is an elitist would be laughable if it wasn't for the fact that it represents a bigger problem. That problem is what Leon Panetta, former Chief of Staff for Bill Clinton, calls a "a sense of entitlement that almost seems to be inbred."
Obviously, of course, the Lady de Rothschild doesn't really need the Democratic Party and its commitment to working class Americans. She doesn't need universal health care; she doesn't need Social Security; she doesn't need Medicare; or any of the other social programs on which millions of Americans depend. She can afford to throw her hissy fit because Obama defeated Hillary Clinton by running a smarter, better, and more focused campaign. She, and other rich HRC supporters, are willing to throw the people that Hillary Clinton was supposedly fighting for under the bus to satisfy their sense of frustrated entitlement.
Lady de Rothschild's attitude illustrates why a lot of people had problems supporting Hillary Clinton. Too often it seemed like her campaign was all about her, about her wanting to be the first woman to be elected president. Now that she didn't win, her supporters want to take their ball and go home. Talk about an elitist attitude!
