CINCINNATI (TDB) -- For most of the past year, Hillary Clinton has been the prime target of GOP strategists. This week, the Ohio Republican Party proclaimed Obama even more liberal than the woman who's been its sturdy arch-villain. Is the shift a sign that Republicans now recognize the Illinois senator poses a greater threat? After all, just 10 days ago ORP deputy chair Kevin DeWine told the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce that Clinton was the candidate his party preferred to face. Indeed, he said he endorsed her run -- a counterintuitive remark.
Now the attack on Obama has appeared on the ORP's official blog:
"And this is the guy Democrats think will unite the country? The only part of the country he's uniting is the far left wing of the Democratic Party."
