Clinton, speaking to a group of Democrats at the Obama National Finance Committee Saturday, said gun control gets a special emotional response from people in rural states, and dismissing pro-gun arguments can backfire.
“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said, Politico reported.
“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world."
Hey, I finally agree with Bill about something. Op, I agree with you too, except for one thing because I think we need to get rid of all aspects of "emotion".
I think what Clinton is trying to tell Obama and others in his party "If you want to get anything else done in your second term, back off on this. It cost me both the House and the Senate." Not a chance that the Democrats take the House if they pass anything like Swinestien's bill, and it will probably cost them the Senate too.
