Have you ever seen this? It is a clip (less than 2 minutes) from a television movie called, 'The Contender' (2000). It is about a woman, Senator Laine Hanson, (played nicely by actress Joan Allen) who has been appointed by the President to replace his Vice President who had passed away a few weeks earlier. In this clip, Hanson is testifying before the Senate during her confirmation hearing.
The movie is a liberal Hollywood producer's wet dream of the way big government should operate, and it is a dead-on window into the mind of today's typical liberal Democrat. In this brief speech, the nominee lays out exactly what liberal Democrats lust for in their hearts but can never say out loud. (By the way, notice also that Senator Laine Hanson stops twice to take a drink of water):
That just about made me puke. I suspect that Hillary Clinton was who they had in mind when they wrote the script for that character and cast it.
