Facebook Wars

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

A remark from Hillary Clinton’s chief adviser Mark Penn has instigated an “Official Petition Against Hillary Clinton” on Facebook.com. The flap is over his comparison of Clinton supporters to Obama supporters at the recent Jefferson Jackson dinner in Iowa. Here’s what started it all: In the Politico over the weekend, Roger Simon wrote: “At least two of Hillary Clinton’s upper-echelon advisers, Mandy Grunwald and Mark Penn, were decidedly unimpressed [with Obama’s showing]. ‘Our people look like caucus-goers,’ Grunwald said, ‘and his people look like they are 18. Penn said they look like Facebook.’ Penn added, ‘Only a few of their people look like they could vote in any state.’ “

The Other Bill:
Bill Richardson raises money this evening in Bel-Air at the home of Lee Iacocca, who has endorsed the New Mexico governor. (I have to note this, as raising money doesn’t always mean endorsement).

Scare Tactics:
Tom Tancredo is a longer than long shot. He doesn’t register at all in entertainment industry support, even among Republicans. But he’s just launched an ad that is designed to put the fear of God into voters. Shades of LBJ’s “Daisy”?
