Hillary's buddy Paul Begala: Dems "cannot win with eggheads and African-Americans"

My, Paul Begala has a way with words, doesn’t he? You might remember him from the aftermath of the 2000 elections:

You see the state where Matthew Shepard was crucified on a split-rail fence for the crime of being gay — it’s red. You see the state where right-wing extremists blew up a federal office building and murdered scores of federal employees — it’s red. The state where an Army private who was thought to be gay was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat, and the state where neo-Nazi skinheads murdered two African-Americans because of their skin color, and the state where Bob Jones University spews its anti-Catholic bigotry: they’re all red too.

He’s got a little more respect for those red-state white folks today. Here he is, makin’ friends again:

BEGALA: We cannot win with egg heads.

Let me finish my point.

We cannot win with egg heads and African-Americans. OK, that is the Dukakis Coalition, which carried ten states and gave us four years of the first George Bush.

President Clinton — reached across to get a whole lot of Republicans and Independents to come. I think Senator Obama and Senator Clinton both have that capacity. They both have a unique ability –well it’s not unique if they both have it. They both have a remarkable ability to reach out to those working-class white folks and Latinos. Senator Clinton has proven it; Barack has not yet, but he can. And I certainly hope he is not shutting the door on expanding the party.

Very interesting–here’s Paul Begala and Rush Limbaugh basically agreeing on the same thing. Limbaugh also thinks Obama is unelectable.

They’re best buddies, you know.
