Either the Clinton War Machine is more inept than anyone thought, or Senator Barack Obama's background really is that clean.
The New York Times's political blog CLICK HERE is reporting today that Senator Hillary Clinton's campaign is still---at this late hour---trying to dredge up dirt on her chief opponent. Why haven't they done this already? And if they have, they clearly came up with nothing, because as of yesterday, they were still trying.
The Times got a hold of an email sent yesterday from Clinton's Deputy Campaign Manager, Bob Nash (who, by the way, served as White House personnel director during the first Clinton co-presidency, so he knows about dirt-excavation). Here he is, trying to unearth something damaging on Obama:

If they don't have the dirt by now, it doesn't exist. They've got nothing on Obama, and they're losing ground to him faster than than you can say "Oprah."
By the way, did you notice that Hillary's campaign is still referring to itself as an "Exploratory" Committee?
I guess that's so if she loses to Obama, she can always say, "I wasn't really running for president. I was just exploring it."
