Obama doesn't want this tax. This only makes sense, considering he's probably going to be the democratic presidential nominee, he doesn't want to take a chance the economy will improve by November. While Hill is a dem, she still wants to become president, and if McCain wins, that sets her up pretty for a 2012 battle.
You know what Hillary says, "We Clinton's never quit."
Republicans love this. So long as the dems are spending all their money beating each other up, McCain can stand by on his high horse and watch. And since Hill will never give up, she will do everything in her power to destroy Obama, even after he gets the nomination.
Hill would normally side with the rest of her dem friends on this matter, but when it comes to winning, those Clintons do whatever needs to be done -- even if that means pretending to be conservative.
This is why Hill agrees with McCain on the gas tax holiday.
For the time being dems have turned their backs on Hill, and are complaining that Washington won't be able to do without the revenue generated by the gas tax; that this money is used to repair bridges and roads.
Now, you mean to tell me that the government can't go one summer without spending money that isn't theirs. They can't do what the rest of us good Americans do when we are in financial difficulties, and stop spending money.
What interesting times these are.
