McCain: Hillary Would Be Good President
NewsMax.com ^ | Feb. 20, 2005 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 02/20/2005 8:29:47 AM PST by Carl/NewsMax

Maverick Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday that his New York colleague, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would do well if she becomes president of the United States.

"I am sure that Sen. Clinton would make a good president," McCain told NBC's "Meet the Press," as both he and Clinton were being interviewed from Baghdad.

While noting that as a Republican, he'll be supporting the GOP nominee in 2008, McCain reiterated, "I have no doubt that Sen. Clinton would make a good president."

Asked whether she thought McCain would make a good president, Sen. Clinton was somewhat less effusive, responding tersely, "Absolutely" - before erupting in her familiar cackle.

How could he say that about her highness??? It's bad enough that McCain even went on such a trip with Hillary (he could have picked the group members himself or opted to take a different trip to Baghdad), for as a prominent former presidential candidate he surely has to know that having her as his "bi-partisan" pal on this trip helps to reinforce her stature for 2008. Why is he helping to solidify Hillary as the front-runner? Is he insane, or is it an insidious plot to help the Democrats end up with another losing candidate in '08????

"Hillary Clinton will never be president and neither will John McCain."


I hope and pray you are right. But when you consider that Kerry came frighteningly close to the presidency, I cannot be at all relaxed about the prospects for Hillary's electoral demise...... I can't see how she ever ought to win, but then I thought her low-life husband could never get one, never mind two, terms as president either......

McCain is a RINO and it wouldn't surprise me if he jumped over to the RAT party so he could be her VP candidate.

I saw it. Wanted to puke...

Remember all the near-hysterical praise heaped upon this RINO by many members of this forum during/after his speech at the GOP convention. It was equally puke-worthy.

Some are worse than others. Some of the good ones turn bad when they get there; and even the good ones don't seem to have the conviction to make much difference.

What is that W.B. Yeats' quote? This may not be exact:

"The worst are full of passionate intensity, while the best have lost all conviction."

He sure is. I have never liked him. I think he's arrogant. I will never vote for him. I think Hillary wants McCain because she thinks he can pull the military vote for her, and he might just do it.

I guess one of a few things are happening here.

#1 He's got a brain tumor and has gone crazy.
#2 He's preparing to jump to Democrat or Independent.
#3 He's a big @sshole.

Either one as President would be a disaster on an epic scale.

I agree... but that said I would take McCain or Hillary over the traitor John Kerry any day if those were the only choices.

Another pearl of wisdom from John "If I only had a brain" McCain. Not surprising as both are sock-puppets of George Soros.

As we say in NJ : PERFECT TOGETHER! Hitlery & McLame

The Charles Keating financed Senator should be flushed from office! His close clan included: Alan MacG. Cranston (D-Calif.); Dennis W. DeConcini (D-Ariz.); John H. Glenn Jr. (D-Ohio); John S. McCain III (RINO-Ariz.); and Donald W. Riegle Jr. (D-Mich).

McLame should become an ex-Senator like his busom buddies!

What is that W.B. Yeats' quote? This may not be exact:

"The worst are full of passionate intensity, while the best have lost all conviction."

Perfect!

One only has to read the history of Europe's degenerate royal courts, in particular, France's degenerate royal courts. There is a definite comparison of Congress members and elites to self-serving courtiers and aristocrats.

Aren't America's "elites" its own self-entitling aristocrats? Blue noses? Snotty Aires? Superior? Secured by wealth? Dismissive toward the Middle Class?

What makes America unique and strong in the world is the economic independence of its majority middle-class. France is probably the best example of the worst Euro-egalitarian state because France is bogged down with a chronicly stale and static economy. Note: France's government OWNS approx. 41% of its industry and commerce. Of Frenchmen who actually are employed, about one half of them are employed by the government and its bureacracies.

French government's "enterprise" was to collude with Saddam's regime and the United Nations in a fraudulent scheme. Violating UN sanctions caused Iraqui's depriviations which were blamed on the U.S. through anti-American propaganda. Le Plus Grand Hypocrite Pres. Chirac loudly shouted anti-Americanisms and Bush-Hate propaganda.

If Americans had to depend on the conglomerate Media establishment, we would never be informed of true facts and factual truth. Clue: a conglomerate ownership of press/media is not a FREE and CREDIBLE PRESS!

I could go on and on...having an outrage moment.

LOL. Did ya hear Shillery yesterday from Baghdad. My interpretation of her words. "After the butt kicking the DNC took in November, this war stuff is really not bad. If I want to win in 08 I need to fake praise for US objectives and accomplishments in the region. Then once elected I can return to my liberal spew."

You are right.I think McCain has the delusion he is a serious national political candidate...although after Kerry's delusions of grandeur (which continue) we shoudn't be surprised. McCain is playing both sides against the middle.....but its not Rep vs Dem. It's Political Candidate vs Upcoming Major News Anchor or Actor. And he is really lousy at acting.

McCainiac is starting to show his real self more and more.
He is only for things that will help HIM. If he has to back stab to get what he wants...well, he'll buy extra blades.

Guess he is upset because he was not picked to be a cabinet member. (It is smart of Bush not to hire the guy).

He wants to be President so bad it hurts. Guess he did not learn his lesson the last time he ran. The Nation as a whole...just doesn't want the guy.

So, I guess, he figures that his next step is to team up with Hillary. Then maybe he can be VP and move up from there.

The problem, he'll just loose any republican support he had.
And democrats are the minority. Not too mention the fact that when ya really talk to people and look at polls that take a some what honest survey of folks...you find out that the majority do not want Hillary either. It seems that many women can't stand her.

So McCain could team up with Hillary...and he still loses.

A RINO is a "Maverick", worthy of quoting ad nauseam by the left-wing press. You just have to bear in mind the source of the title, it tells the story behind it.
