Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton strikes out (0 for 3 on the accuracy scoreboard)

Sen. Clinton strikes out

The day before former President Clinton's library was dedicated in Little Rock, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democrats' front-runner for the party's 2008 presidential nomination, gave Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren her first sit-down interview since her party got pummeled in the last election. If Mrs. Clinton aspires to become president, it would be helpful for her to get her facts straight.

The junior senator from New York could begin by settling upon a consistent explanation for what happened to her party on Nov. 2. From one moment to the next in the interview, Mrs. Clinton offered two diametrically opposite views of the Democrats' electoral debacle. Mrs. Van Susteren asked, "What happened?" Mrs. Clinton replied: "Clearly, we didn't do a very good job." Later she understandably lamented that "two groups where we lost ground were women and Hispanics." After Mrs. Clinton complained about the spiraling budget deficit, Mrs. Van Susteren asked why the Democrats didn't win. Here, Mrs. Clinton did her 180: "Well, Greta, I think that we did a great job." So, which is it?

In addition to some help with rhetorical consistency, the Wellesley and Yale Law School graduate could use a course in contemporary American history. "[W]e have had a president who has been the first in our history to take us to war and cut taxes at the same time," she asserted, forgetting, we suppose, President Lyndon Baines Johnson. The 1964 tax cut, which President Johnson signed on Feb. 26, reduced income-tax rates in two phases. The range of individual tax rates was reduced from the existing 20 to 91 percent to 16 to 77 percent in 1964 and to 14 to 70 percent in 1965.

No debates will be allowed -

I suspect that maybe her downfall. She doesn't speak well, and no training at this point will help her reputation.

The GOP candidate could be Lazio. Even he could smoke the Beast with real ideas - after she makes it through the dozen of other RATS who want to be president.

I'm so very glad the Downside Legacy was helpful!

It's a great resource, and will be useful for many years, AG.
