Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton says:

If We Had the Republican Rules, I Would Already Be the Nominee...

Let's see. You are using Republican talking points like Obama is a Muslim, and attacking Obama's pastor. You are conflating Farrakhan to Obama. You are showing Osama bin Laden in your ads. You are telling us how qualified you and John McCain are. You are telling us you expect calls on Iran at 3 AM. You are going on Bill O'Reilly.

If you love Republicans so much, you might as well just RUN as the Republican nominee.

The media inflamed the Muslim connection and the Rev. Wright crap. Those were not Clinton campaign "talking points."

Hmmmm. A president who can bridge the gap with Republicans and unite the country, bringing the Republican party back to more middle ground like it was before the Neocons took over...yeah, imagine that!!! Sounds just AWFUL to me.

Doing talk show appearances on the same network as hosts who say you killed Vince Foster is not briding a gap, it's being 2nd place and dropping all your values in order to try to win over any remaining Republicans willing to vote in the Democratic primary for their punching bag.

There's a difference between speaking to Republican voters and attending lunch with Richard Mellon Scaife.

"Last July, the former president sat down with a billionaire impressed with the William J. Clinton Foundation's campaign against AIDS in Africa. The two men chatted amiably over lunch for more than two hours, and the visitor pledged to write Clinton's foundation a generous check."

Why not use the idiot for his money for a worthwhile cause? Why not quell detractors so they can concentrate on more important enemies? It's called politics... and all the candidates are doing it. Obama is involved with special interest organizations as much as Clinton -- despite his claims of being "different" and "bringing change."

And I just saw Phil Donahue, uber-Liberal, on the O'Reily show. So what? And Obama agreed to an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. So what is he doing with ultra-conservative, Republican-loving Fox News? What is the difference?

Seriously... it should be the big picture that counts -- and who is more qualified to run this country. This other stuff is just politics as usual.

First, I am upset that Obama went on Fox News as well. But, he doesn't have the history that Hillary has with their hosts. It's a political dissapointment, not personal.

As for Donahue, I don't give a flip. Fox viewers don't care about him. We're talking Presidential candidates here. Having them not go on huirts Fox News credibility, and the ban should have continued.

I excuse neither candidate -- but Hillary's appearance is particularly shocking to me after Vince Foster and all the vile, personal affronts.

As for Scaife, the guy led the witchhunt on Clinton. Taking the guy's money? Where's the principle?

Not the focus of the blog post, however.

Where's the principle in Obama lying in his big, grand race speech about his white grandmother being "racist"? I've found numerous accounts that his grandmother was no such person. Again, they are politicians, therefore, they maneuver.

Have you watched Hillary on O'Reilly? This woman is absolutely brilliant. Staying as calm, collected and brilliant under fire from the idiot O'Reilly is feat enough -- but the things she says? WOW. She actually has smart, clear-cut ways to pay for her amazing ideas, unlike Obama who couldn't possibly find the finances to follow through on his grand promises. If you care to try to be at least a little partial, I advise you to go here and watch part 1 through 4:

And I don't see where we deviated from the point of your post -- which was accusing Clinton of "making bedfellows" of people who were "mean" to her in the past. Can Clinton do a fantastic job as president? Yes she can, and that's what's important. And she can actually bridge the gaps with the Republicans in the process. Believe it or not, all Republicans are not bad.

Actually, if you've been paying attention, I never claimed that Hillary would be a bad President. I said she doesn't fully represent what I look for, but I'd still choose her.

It's your attitude towards an Obama presidency which is the root of our disagreement.

As for Barack's grandmother, I've got better things to talk about. I wouldn't claim to know his family better than he and I'm not sure why you are.

Hillary can definitely bridge some gaps as well. She already has. The credit card companies thank her. It's a sure good thing she put a halt on NAFTA and viva Iraq. But that's OK, I'll turn my head while she tells me how progressive she is and she gives me the hernia test.

Anyway, I find it hard to believe any Republican will have the nerve to "agree" with President Hillary Clinton -- even if I believe the Republicans would be gross idiots for playing that game. So, no, I don't really agree with your statement.

At this point it's moot -- she's not winning the nomination. So, not sure why we need to keep discussing this.

Hey, I got along with you. YOU are the one who is willing to withhold your vote for Obama and endorse 4 more years of Bush.

#1. I said I would vote for whomever the Democratic nominee is, though grudgingly. You misquote me like you do everyone else, it seems! :-)

#2. When it comes to Obama's character, you turn a blind eye. I didn't come up with the assessment about his grandmother -- the people who KNEW his grandmother at the time are the ones who assessed the situation. I just read the accounts and report back. You're attacking Clinton's character, and then when I turn it around and show that Obama's is just as questionable with the lies he tells, you dismiss it. That's why I debate you... because you can't for one second see that both candidates bend the truth and pander to the public for the nomination. Again, it's called POLITICS. You'll do yourself a grand favor if you start trying to see every side of an issue. Optimism is great; blind idealism will get you in a world of hurt.

Your quips about Clinton and the credit card companies, Iraq war, and NAFTA are truly laughable. You know as well as anyone that there are about three sides to all those stories -- and I have pointed out several of them to you -- you just refuse to see the other sides.

True Republicans would do well to work with Clinton on several of her plans for reconstructing this country. Maybe you're still mixing up "Republican" with "Neocon." I understand... we've all been pretty burned and brainwashed over the past 8 years.

This isn't over yet...Obama has shown he's not good about standing up under the pressure. On the other hand. Clinton has risen above and beyond as she always does. Example:

Obviously, it doesn't matter for us because the Colorado primary is over with. But anything can still happen, which is why it's so interesting to watch!
