(CNN) – Hillary Clinton's campaign is pointing to its Pennsylvania primary endorsement Sunday morning by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review – the latest in a stunning series of recent rapprochements with previous conservative media foes.
"For Pennsylvania Democrats, the smart choice Tuesday is Mrs. Clinton," writes the paper's deeply conservative editorial board in a piece e-mailed to reporters by her campaign Sunday. "She has a real voting record on key issues. Agree with her or not, you at least know where she stands instead of being forced to wonder.
"Many of her views on domestic issues are too liberal for us, but on others she seems to have moderated. ."
The board sharply criticizes both Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, writing that: "Everyone utters stupidities now and then. Yet taken together and uttered repeatedly, they sound like a pattern of thought in the Obama household. It's a pattern the nation can't afford in the White House."
The Tribune-Review is owned and published by conservative Richard Mellon Scaife - a frequent critic of the Clintons who helped fund The Arkansas Project, a series of exhaustive investigations into former President Bill Clinton.
The New York senator famously built a relationship with former critic Rupert Murdoch, whose New York Post frequently blasted both Clintons. The Australian-born media baron even hosted a fundraiser for her during her second Senate run.
But over the past few months, her presidential campaign has taken its apparent embrace of former media adversaries to a new level, sending reporters articles that praise Clinton and attack Barack Obama drawn from conservative outlets including the National Review and the American Spectator, and quotes from Republican pundits like Ed Rollins and Grover Norquist.
And former President Bill Clinton made an appearance on talker Rush Limbaugh's show the day of the Texas and Ohio primaries – contests in which the conservative radio host had urged listeners to vote for Hillary Clinton as a means of sabotaging the Democratic nominating process.
I keep reading that Obama gave Hillary the finger, is this true?
The Republicans want her to win.
HOW CAN ANYONE BELIEVE CLINTON'S POLICIES...........
............................................WHEN SHE LIES SO MUCH???
An endorsement by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says it all. Hillary is approved by the hard Right. And she wants us to vote her into office? Give me a break.
Thank God -Some people are beginning to see the danger in Obama.
The only reason for a conservative newspaper to visibly show support for Hil-liar-y is that they are more scared of a black muslim racist elitist.
Hillary Clinton will do or say anything to get elected; she has been contradicting herself continually throughout her campaign. Be wary, Pennsylvania, about voting for her.
WHO IS BARACK OBAMA FRONTING FOR? WHO WILL RUN THE WHITE HOUSE IF HE WIN?THINK ABOUT IT
Joe, the biggest mistake in history would be electing Obama.
SEANATOR CLINTON WILL WIN PA!!!! ACCEPT IT.. SHE IS ON HER WAY TO WINNING NOMINATION..
BARACK. NEEDS TO GO BACK TO CHICAGO.....
CLINTON 08......CLINTON 08..... CLINTON 08............
The GOP lobby is striking back – it´s a smart way to recommend the weaker candidate so finally there are better chances for Mc Cain......
Ugh !!! shouldnt she renounce and denounce that endorsement
now they're borrowing their conservative compatriot's kitchen sinks!!!
PA- THE- TIC
Basically confirming what we already know and has been obvious to Dems for sometime. Hillary is now officially a RIght Wing Reprocrat
Is it not strange that the Republicans that hate her the most are pretending to support her? They want to see her draw this out just so that the Clintons can tarnish their own image even further.
And if this was Obama- you Obamabots would be praising these as examples of how Obama unifys and works across the aisles, blah blah blah.
Bottomline- Hillary is just a better candidate. Period.
Wouldn't someone who reads this paper on a regular basis be inclined to vote for that OTHER Republican, McCain?
A thoughtful, intelligent endorsement for Hillary and I will predict a series of hate-speech, name calling comments from the Obama-zombies in here. Let's see if I am right.....
Nicely put, joe.
Many of us Obama advocates would have a difficult time 'filling in the clinton 'cirlce' on the ballot in November...McCain would then get my vote and many others are going to do the same, sad to say.
Hillary Clinton, Americas newest Republican!!! Vote Democratic, Vote Obama.
Such a dishonest woman. Go away!!!OBAMA 08'
How serious is Clinton? Serious enough to stoop to tactics so low that they are shady enough to be Republican tactics.
Endorsed by a far right wingnut. Need anymore be said?
Hillary has just sold her soul to the devil! PA save us from this person who will do anything to win!
Vote OBAMA on Tuesday!!
Woah woah woah, wait.
Clinton says the media is biased against her, but Rupert Murdock holds a fundraiser for her?
