ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I am very disturbed that former President Bill Clinton, a proclaimed Democratic Sen. Barack Obama supporter, who purports that his Clinton Global Initiative is a bipartisan forum for discussing and improving global issues around the world, would allow Sen. John McCain to give a partisan Republican speech at Thursday’s Global Initiative conference in New York.

Mr. Clinton should have made it very clear and read the speech ahead of time to ensure that the speech focused on the spirt of his organization and was not a speech to promote the Republican agenda.

This calls into question Mr. Clinton’s true support for Mr. Obama and the Democrats.

Why would he allow such a thing? Would Mr. Clinton rather compromise the most important presidential election in the past 50 years over his own personal endeavors?

The icing on the cake is that Mr. Clinton provided courtesy videotape to the media of Mr. McCain’s partisan rhetoric.

What was he thinking?

Please heal my wounds. I am hurt by this.
