Democrat Presidential Candidates Have a Bad Week

First there's Dennis Kucinich, who wants to impeach the Vice President for some reason that we're sure he thinks is really really good. Here's what Florida Democrat Congressman Alcee Hastings had to say about Kucinich this week according to Drudge:

'Dennis Kucinich is on a quest of his own. He sees flying saucers and he acts like one, too'

Then there's Hillary Clinton, who when finally tested by her Democrat competitors completely flopped on the debate stage, dodging one question after another. Yesterday on CNN she agreed with those of us who pointed out her poor performance, according to

"I wasn't at my best the other night," Clinton told CNN's Candy Crowley. "We have had a bunch of debates, and you know, I wouldn't rank that up in my very top list." Following the debate, Clinton's opponents for the 2008 Democratic nomination (as well as Hillary detractors generally) criticized the New York senator for being dishonest and evasive, and for flip-flopping on several issues.

Then there's Barack Obama, whose supporters were so concerned about comedian Steven Colbert, they pressed officials in South Carolina to keep Colbert off the ballot, according to CNN:

Two prominent supporters of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign in South Carolina called state Democratic Party officials and urged them to keep funnyman Stephen Colbert's name off the primary ballot, according to party officials and Obama supporters.

If the people who know Obama best are so concerned about a comedian, how do they expect him to compete with the Republican presidential nominee in 2008? Not exactly a convincing show of confidence in their guy.
