Iowa Headliner Hillary Has Dems Fuming
NewsMax ^ | 10/20/03 | Limbacher

Posted on 10/20/2003 8:04:17 AM PDT by Tumbleweed_Connection

Try as she might, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton just can't seem to resist the urge to interject herself into next year's presidential contest - and her latest stunt has some Democrats fuming.

Clinton has accepted an invitation to emcee next month's Jefferson-Jackson day dinner in Iowa, one of the premier events for Democratic presidential candidates who are currently courting the state's voters in anticipation of January's Iowa caucuses.

"She ought to know better," one party activist seethed to the New York Post. "If she's not going to run, she ought to give some air to the people who really are."

"Why doesn't she do a JJ [Jefferson-Jackson dinner] in Florida?" he added.

Clinton's continuing presence on the presidential stage haunts the announced presidential candidates like a recurring nightmare, even though she herself has repeatedly insisted she has no intention of getting into the race.

Still, Mrs. Clinton keeps dropping hints that things could change. Addressing a Manhattan crowd earlier this year, the Democratic favorite blurted out, "I like the name president."

In July, Mrs. Clinton told a British TV interviewer who wondered if she would run in 2004, "You never know what might happen."

Indeed. After a year of campaigning by all the announced candidates, polls show that the former first lady still tops every other Democrat in the race.

The party's predicament prompted Democratic strategist Susan Estrich to make this prediction to Fox News Channel's Tony Snow on Sunday:

"I still think Hillary will get in . . . she's unelectable but certainly nominatable."

Clinton has accepted an invitation

The first rule of guests is:
IF YOU DON"T WANT SOMEBODY TO COME, DON'T INVITE THEM.
It's not foolproof, but it sometimes works.

What do they expect...Clinton shill Terry McAliffe, who heads the DNC, has insured that the endless series of Dem candidates "debates"..is meaningless and boring, byu refusing to eliminate the marginal candidates..thus ensuring that no one's message gets through all the clutter, and that Al Sharpton gets all the good sound bites...the other candidates are just now realizing this?..is so, it proves they're all too stupid to be president..

She will never allow that. She has people to make sure it doesn't.

I think Susan Estrich is right. Hillary will run in 2004. That's been my opinion for a long time.

No one thought she could win New York, but she did, with a combination of ruthless dirty tricks and the assiduous support of the press. Winning the U.S. will be harder, but no one ever said that this ***** lacks ambition or a very high opinion of herself.

Now's the time. The machine is in place, and if she waits another four years she risks losing control of the party and the press. The press always wants results NOW. They desperately want to nail Bush. I can't see them staying faithful to the clinton for five more years.

It helped that the idiot she was running against ran a truly awful campaign.

But when she started her campaign in New York, she was up against a highly popular Rudy Guiliani. She likes to go up against heavy weights. It's great for her monstrous ego. She'll run.

I mean it is uproariously funny, really!

The rats sell their souls to the Clinton Mafia for the hundreds of millons in illegal campaign dollars that Bill, Hillary, and Terry McAwful got from the Chinese Communist military, Enron and Global Crossings. Now they are whining at the misbehavior of their masters?

Hey guys, you defended to the death the evil Clintons! You bought that fecal pie. Now, bon appetit!!

Twould be instructive as to who invited the mighty, all-powerful, bullet-proof, all-knowing, smartest-woman-in-the-world Hildabeaste.

This smacks of a DNC set up.

While 70% of the electorate get it ,only one pundit, Bill Bennett, has been sharp enough to see through this clinton " infrastructure " complex-question fallacy scheme. When Sean Hannity ( Hannity and Colmes , FoxNews) asked Bennett whether "she would run," Bennett first asked Hannity to clarify who the "she" was, and, when told, delivered the coup de grâce, "Run for what?

(THE RECALL'S BIGGEST LOSERS -- the clintons)

The clintons
have arrogated the Democratic party in perpetuity,
and remade it in their ugly image.

In one fell swoop,
they have decimated their party,
and shredded the very fabric of western civilization--
perhaps irreparably.

Not a very good development
for democratic careers (or countries)....
One has to wonder how much longer
the average D pol will tolerate this grotesque pair....

There are doubtless multiple coups in the works.
Susan Estrich is merely greasing
the guillotine.

Who in his right (even if left) mind would ever want the clintons back in the Oval Office?

The last frame of the movie bears repeating:

Thank you, Gavin McNett, for your tribute to the incomparable Tammy Wynette. (TAMMY WYNETTE, 1942-1998)
 
Too many pundits, usually leftist and privileged, sneer at country music. To these critics, any music created by poor, Southern whites (at least those poor, Southern whites who didn't attend an Ivy League university) must be held in contempt, along with its correlatives: incest, racism and trailer parks.
 
Hillary Clinton? Who would even know her name were it not for her attachment to a man? Where would she be now if she as a child had to pick cotton from sun up to sun down?
 
Tammy Wynette stands alone, a legend; and she will be admired wherever people appreciate the honesty of the human experience. Human beings are vulnerable. We all should be thankful to any artist courageous enough to bare her soul on the public stage so the rest of us who are listening and know whereof she speaks might benefit.

Also from the flash movie:
 
"Who is Juanita Broaddrick? I've never heard of her!" cried Betty Friedan, the founder of modern feminism. Friedan's outburst came at last Fridayís conference, entitled "The Legacy and Future of Hillary Rodham Clinton." Held at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. D.C., the event offered a chilling microcosm of an angry, divided America.
 
For nearly an hour, a five-woman panel had been debating whether Hillary qualified as a "feminist heroine." I thought Broaddrick's claim of having been raped by Hillary's husband had some bearing on this point, so I broached the subject during the question-and-answer period. Friedan's dyspeptic denial followed.
 
Was Friedan telling the truth? Maybe. And maybe all those millions of Germans who professed ignorance of the death camps were telling the truth too. The problem is, having admitted her ignorance, Friedan showed no interest in exploring the matter further. And that was the problem with the Germans too.
 
Totalitarian impulses flourished at the conference. Taking a page from Soviet psychiatry, some Clintonites suggested that Hillary hating might be a mental illness. . .
 

Richard Poe, The Hillary Conspiracy

 

COMMENT:
As usual, the left has it backwards. The definitive operant definition of mental illness is precisely NOT despising and repudiating the clintons and all they have done and all they stand for.

Exactly why she WILL get in the race. Clark was put in by the Clinton's in order to slow Dean; now they need the big gun in.
