Hillary Clinton Shedding Polarizing Image
Minneapolis Star and Tribune ^ | 11/21/04 | Judy Holland

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Recent polls show the public's image of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., gradually morphing from sharply controversial First Lady to centrist, constituent-minded senator. Although still a polarizing figure, the first-term legislator could use the makeover to position herself for a White House run in 2008. Political strategists say Clinton has impressed Senate colleagues and constituents by working on New York issues while taking moderate or conservative stances on controversies such as the war in Iraq. "A majority feel positive toward her," said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. "She's being seen as being more effective and sticking to her job. She's managed to shape her role in a way that's more acceptable. She's in a transition."

"A tiger can't shed it's stripes."

But a stitch in time saves nine.

The Beast is greasing the skids.

Seriously, we cannot under-estimate this women. Or else a second Clinton presidency will follow the second Bush presidency.

Well, well.

The campaign for '08 officially unofficially begins.

Please let it be true that she's going to run in '08. I can think of nothing more entertaining than watching the critics rip her record apart. Travelgate, cattle-futures, the health care dud, and not to mention the white house expense records that will be released in early '05. What a field day. Bring me another Mai-Tai!

You have a definite cruel streak.

Hillary is betraying her constituents (the homos, the trial lawyers, the unions, the socialists, the minorities) for her own power.

Or is she pretending?

Of course we all know the truth.
