This is bizarre. According to this S-T article Skinner is more or less spinning for the Hull campaign. I don't see this making much of a difference for Hull, but I can't for the life of me figure out what Skinner is up to here. Zorn says this:
"The only possible role Skinner and Washington can play in this election, particularly now that they have failed to qualify for the major televised debates, is to deny Obama a victory."
But to my recollection, Skinner has gone out of her way thus far to praise Obama. Why would she want to play spoiler now? What's Skinner's interest in this? Is she looking for a job this fall and betting on Hull to provide it (sorry Nancy the National Film Office is full)? This move certainly won't help her liberal cred, that's for sure.
