Bhutto's Effect on Presidential Campaignsrawstory.com
Made popular 2500 days ago in Politics
rawstory.com — The suicide bombing that claimed former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has upended the US presidential campaigns just a week before voters in Iowa head out to caucus.

"Still, the instant conventional wisdom will say that heavy news coverage of the gun and bomb attack will bolster the arguments of Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), both members of the Armed Services Committee. ... That same instant C.W. will say that the candidates most damaged will be Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R)," report The Politico's Mike Allen, Jonathan Martin and Ben Smith.

Clinton will shift her planned topics in a speech Thursday after the opposition leader's death, and her campaign tells a Wall Street Journal blog that it expects the assassination will prevent rival Obama from criticizing her and former Sen. John Edwards.

In Iowa that's all she needs, the tipping of the scale. This story can most certainly do it.

What a crappy poll. I can't believe you conveniently leave Biden, Dodd, and Richardson out of this.

I read this lady had to leave Pakistan because of a corruption scandal.
Just another corrupt politician the Zionist were using to stir thing up in Pakistan.
Not that i think the current leader is anything other than a turd on the turd pile.But basically its a who really gives a shit and lol who will really be thinking about Pakistan's problems when we are trying to solve our own.When we solve ours i bet the worlds problems get smaller and fewer.Distractions folks you got to learn to recognize them for what they are.Distractions!
