Continuing their campaign follies, Hillary Clinton and/or her aides are reportedly circulating a "stunning" photo of--get this--Obama dressed as a tribal elder while on a visit to rural Kenya in 2006. According to the Clinton campaign is not denying sending the shot to Matt Drudge and others. Knockout punch? Maybe inmiddle school. Then again, it may be effective. And it'll certainly prepare Obama for the general election against the GOP. I don't see how it'll help Hillary now. Or later, as she tries to rescue her legacy.
