Hillary Warns GOP: 'Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely'

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton warned Thursday that she already sees signs of corruption with Republicans firmly in control of the House, the Senate and the White House.

"You know, absolute power corrupts absolutely," Clinton told CNN's "American Morning."

Dropping the bipartisan demeanor she'd adopted for the opening of her husband's presidential library, Clinton said, "I think that we have an administration and Republican leadership that, you know, is very powerful. And power should be handled carefully in a democracy."

Clinton complained that when Republicans were in the minority, "they certainly wanted to apply the harshest of rules to Democratic leaders for so many years."

While calling for a political "truce to all of this back and forth," she added, "let's have rules that apply to everybody."

Well Hillary, you should know, considering the pardons, gifts, and cigar sessions in the White House.

That's rich.........Hillary! "I can't recall" Clinton,
lecturing the GOP about how power corrupts.
It's almost as funny as BJ lecturing us on moral values.

She's right.

It's something we would do well to think about, lest we face the same fate as the Democrats.

Funny, because that's what she'd love to have. The Clintons, in absolute power in Arkansas, wrecked the public schools and the medical profession.

Note: If anyone is ever in an accident in Arkansas, insist that the ambulance takes you over the nearest state line for help.

We should just sit back... allow her to feel her own comfort zone.... and quietly compile her more spontaneous moments as insurance against 2008...

I doubt she will survive any reasonable challenge in 2006...
And Rudy will likely squash her re-election bid.... a lot like a PEST....

Regards
