George W. Bush has forcefully stuffed seven years of non-existent straw men down our throats, namely variations of the "Some people say..." rhetorical device (when no people say), and now Hillary Clinton (ever the ambitious one) has gone and done the President one better.

Hillary has begun to create an entire community of straw folk that will make the hard (or even simple) choices while Hillary focuses instead on focus group results. Here's Hillary on whether the pro-Obama "1984" ad rushing through the internet tubes should be pulled: "You know, that’s for somebody else to decide." Sound familiar? Lee Iacocca would be proud--this Senator is "getting out of the way." I guess we'll have to stay tuned to see how often Clinton employs this new village of deciders throughout the campaign.
