Jay Newton-Small reports via email from the “Defending the American Dream Summit” here in DC:
Hillary was the punching bag of most of the GOP candidates at today’s conference. Giuliani slammed her 10 times by name, Brownback once, Huckabee once. Thompson – oddly- saved his fire for Bill Clinton reminiscing how formidable an opponent Billy was when Freddie was in the Senate. Ron Paul was the only one who didn’t mention Hillary- he saved his fire for his own party.
I think McCain is scheduled to speak later, if anyone thought he stayed his hand this week, I don’t think he will now.
