Oh, Hilary. You know that looks worse for President Obama, right?
Sen Claire McCaskill, a frequent presence on Obama plane in 2008, skipping the Dem convention because O too toxic. Incredible.

As Twitchy reported earlier, Senator McCaskill is the latest Democrat in a red state who is choosing to skip the Democratic National Convention. Demplosion!
The President has clearly become radioactive. Distancing yourself now, Senator, is super transparent. And won’t work.
The senator got it from both sides today. Twitter users were united in their disdain, albeit for different reasons.
It sure is hard to remain a Democratic when one observes the party's leaders' craven behavior. http://t.co/AB2mIaQN

@clairecmc Do you really think that skipping the DNC will help your electoral prospects? Stop caving to extreme right and stand on principle

Extreme right? Check his poll numbers, dude.

As long as she still blindly votes along party lines, she’s A-okay!
Oh @clairecmc why aren't you going to the DNC? Come on. I really believed in you.

@clairecmc I'm no longer a MO voter, but I'm disappointed you're skipping the DNC. Hold true to your values and have pride in your party.

Most see it for what it is; a move designed to try to distance herself from President Radioactive to save her own floundering political prospects.

Oh, dear. Bet she wishes she hadn’t said that, huh?
Rut-roh! Is she racist?
— Kelly (@KLSouth) June 26, 2012
Senator McCaskill is now trying to backpedal.
McCaskill: if you had hard re-election,"would you go to a bunch of parties and glad-handing " or stay home to convince voters to rehire you?
