There's a pattern emerging here - liberals and conservatives united regarding Hillary Clinton

The thought is that Hillary Clinton is staying in the race against Barack Obama, hoping for a big gaffe.

Well, there's been a big gaffe, all right. From CNN:

"I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," Clinton said in an interview with USA TODAY.

Clinton cited an Associated Press poll "that found how Senator Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me."...

"These are the people you have to win if you're a Democrat in sufficient numbers to actually win the election," she said. "Everybody knows that."

But if we follow this logic to its obvious conclusion, perhaps we need to elect a MAN to the office. I'm just saying.

Then Clinton said,

"There's a pattern emerging here."

Never have truer words been spoken.

I'm sure Clinton is delighted at the conversation that I overheard at my church a couple of nights ago: "He really IS a Muslim."

And more people heard about Sean Astin's reference to Barack Hussein Obama.

So let's see what's next over the next few days.

But Clinton has already succeeded in uniting many liberals and conservatives - AGAINST her. USA Today:

Taegan Goddard's Political Wire took part of the comment and made it the "quote of the day."

Steve Benen at the liberal Carpetbagger Report writes that "Clinton has done well with white 'hard-working' Americans, especially in states like Pennsylvania. But her argument is premised on the notion that White Joe Six Pack who votes in a Democratic primary would rather support a Republican than Obama. Where's the proof to bolster this claim? There isn't any."

AllahPundit at the conservative is none too charitable: "Ah well. As the ship goes down, we're bound to hear a few last desperate screams like this."

Alex Koppelman at the liberal's War Room blog writes that "while it's true that Obama trails behind Clinton in winning support from white working-class voters, it's not as if he's getting no support from that group whatsoever. Clinton, on the other hand, has almost no support left from African-American voters."
