Well, Super Tuesday is over, and one more result is in aside from the outcome at the polls. Gallup says that a survey conducted Jan. 30-Feb.2 found 4 in 10 Democrats thought that Hillary and Bill (yes, Bill too) Clinton had attacked Barack Obama unfairly. As a result, Bill Clinton’s image among Democrats has declined in the last few months. In the poll, 41 percent of Democrats said Bill Clinton had attacked Obama unfairly, 35 percent said that Hillary Clinton had, and only 23 percent said they thought Obama has attacked Clinton unfairly. The margin of error is 3 percent. Hendrik Hertzberg has a good piece on the Clinton-Obama “spat” in this week’s New Yorker.
