Harold Ickes, Meet the Press

Clinton campaign adviser Harold Ickes appeared this morning on Meet the Press, where Tim Russert finally asked the Clinton campaign how they can justify continually claiming that they’re leading in the popular vote. Ickes’ response repeatedly was “We’re using the AP numbers,” which evidently include the Michigan vote (where Clinton was on the ballot and Obama wasn’t), while not counting the caucus state votes, which Obama won handily.

Other than that, Ickes’ appearance was notable for his utter lack of answers to direct questions, further painting the Clinton campaign as arrogant and smug and willing to change the rules midstream, as long as it benefits their own interests.

The program will be rebroadcast at 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. (ET) on MSNBC. Video and transcripts will be available on the MTP website.
