Obama Vs. Clinton: "Name your poison"



GQ interview with Karl "The architect" Rove, via Newsbusters:
So the Dems have two rattled candidates?
Right. Now, you got one candidate who's got an appeal to the blue-collar Democrats: Clinton. I call them the beer drinkers. And then you got the white-wine crowd, which Obama appeals to. There's a brilliant article by Ron Brownstein in the latest issue of National Journal in which he charts the change in the nature of the Democrat-primary vote, and it's becoming younger, more affluent, and more liberal. And that means that blue-collar Democrats, whatever's left of them, are on their way out of the Democratic Party.
If Rove is right (and he usually is), then where are the beer drinking blue-collar Democrats going? Perhaps MSNBC stumbled upon the answer in this recent attempted hit piece titled, Beer heiress could be next first lady, Hotair. Here are some pulled quotes directly from the column:

"Budweiser, then NASCAR's official beer, is brewed by Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc., whose products have made Cindy McCain and her family a fortune."

"Her beer earnings have afforded the GOP presidential nominee a wealthy lifestyle with a private jet and vacation homes at his disposal, and her connections helped him launch his political career."

"Within a few years of marrying Cindy Hensley, the daughter of a multimillionaire Anheuser-Busch distributor, John McCain won his first election."

"Anheuser-Busch's political action committee was among McCain's earliest donors."

"McCain is routinely ranked among the richest senators. But a prenuptial agreement has kept most assets in his wife's name."

Oh well, John McCain was on a roll until that last one. Seems that Cindy has a paddle lock on the liquor cabinet. The point here is that John McCain loves beer drinkers. That's enough for me.
