Cohen: Kind words for Hillary Clinton show Sarah Palinís smarts
The Boston Herald ^ | March 26, 2014 | Adriana Cohen

Hillary Clinton is probably the last person Sarah Palin wants to see in the Oval Office.

Which makes Palin’s near-endorsement of Clinton a bit of a head-scratcher. But Palin, despite the smears back in 2008, is a lot smarter than the left-leaning press has ever been willing to admit.

“I would like to see women run for the higher office. I think America certainly is ready for more female candidates at that upper echelon,” Palin told Mario Lopez on “Extra” when he asked about a Clinton run. And the stunned speculation about why Palin would say anything nice about Clinton began.

The fact is, Clinton is a dream candidate for the Republican Party in 2016.

Never mind all those polls that say Clinton walks away with it.

The Clintons have enough skeletons in their political closet to petrify a haunted house — and Bill, the former impeached president, will be a part of this race, too, as the nation’s prospective first First Husband.

The Democratic-friendly media has already been forced to notice the way she attacked the women her unfaithful husband targeted, though her party is supposed to be all about protecting the sisterhood.

Eventually, the media will have to address why it does make a difference who killed our ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi.

There’s the question of whether — given her angry outburst before Congress — she has the temperament to be president.

By 2016, Iran — aided by Clinton and President Obama’s exercise of soft power — may well have nukes.

Secretary of State John Kerry accidentally gave Bashir Assad his lifeline with that Russian-brokered chemical weapons deal, but Clinton missed the chance to support a real Syrian democracy movement, before al-Qaeda co-opted it. Then, there’s her support for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, thanks to Crimea, Clinton’s infamous Russian “reset” rings hollow. That phone Clinton was ready to answer at 3 a.m.? It turns out it was ... not in service.

Then, there’s Obama­care. Clinton was a major failed proponent of big government health care even before Obama succeeded in making a mess of it.

Palin, who couldn’t catch a break back in 2008, probably wouldn’t mind seeing Clinton catch a little of that political heat.

But maybe, Palin was doing the last thing her detractors would ever expect — voicing a laudable ideal, taking the high road, with no partisanship at all.

Maybe Palin, actually thinks, as she stated, that it’s good for women to run for high office. Women, no matter what their politics, should be running for high office. Maybe that’s all Palin was trying to say.

Two "Sarah Palin is actually smart" articles from the major media in one day? Huh? And I thought some people here claimed that she only goes on Fox News shows to be interviewed? Extra is not an FNC production.

Wow, an article that refers to what Palin actually said (which did not include mention of Hillary or the Presidency, but rather “women” and “higher office”).

And WELCOME BACK! (further comment self-deleted)

Good do see you were just...reloading

True. But this is also an example of the Left’s incredible projection. Because they can’t say anything nice about their opposition, they believe their opposition cannot be civil, either. They are truly, completely, indoctrinated zombies.

I doubt Hillary Clinton is sitting in her witches chair thinking “WOW Sarah Palin thinks I should run, I guess I should do it” if Hitlary wants to run she is gonna do it no matter what..Sarah is a smart cookie, its called reverse psychology..would the butcher of Benghazi have a chance at winning, probably but I really hope not, I hope that enough people have woken up to how truly evil the left is

The prospect of a Clinton-Palin matchup makes the Partisan Media Shills you know what all over themselves.

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet, and welcome back.

The prospect of a Clinton-Palin matchup....

Can you envision the very sweet, attractive Sarah standing on the Debate stage next to the mean-spirited, wrinkled, old hag Hillary? That’s worth 10 percentage points in the polls.

Hillary Clinton has always lacked class. Even her college photos prove that.

Sarah Palin has class. That’s why Leftist women are so jealous of Sarah Palin. She’s beautiful and smart and articulate and loves her country. Even those who think they want a “classless” society know and secretly admire real class when they see it.
