Nina Burleigh: Do the Right Thing, Hillary

Nina Burleigh: Do the Right Thing, Hillary

 

Nina Burleigh
Fri May 5, 11:08 AM ET

 

Sometime later this month, way down on the Sewanee river -- or somewhere in Tennessee anyway -- a "Draft Hillary" party will take place, replete with red white and blue gingerbread cookies.

I respect and admire Hillary Clinton, and I believe she means well, but this event should strike fear into our hearts. I'm all for having a female president and the Senator might even make a good one, somewhere and someday. The trouble is she can't be elected in 2008. It doesn't matter how many times she teams up with Bill Frist to show how moderate and diplomatic she is. It doesn't matter how often she speaks up for the troops or supports the war. It doesn't even matter how many cadaverous millionaires from the U.S. Senate report that they are finding -- to their surprise! -- that the little lady is a real hard worker and great company.

She can charm the U.S. Senate, but she is not going to win the Nascar dads, nor, probably, their wives. I don't know what her pollsters are smoking, besides dollar bills, but anyone who breathes the air in the red districts knows this to be true.

A lot of the world's troubles stem from the fact that so many people resist doing what they do best. Sen. Clinton is already doing what she does best: working in her lawyerly, focused way, within the U.S. Senate, forging complicated and strange alliances, seeking the moderate line, practicing an arcane craft in which the successful application of an obscure amendment to a piece of legislation that will never pass is considered cause for breaking open the champagne.

Like gay marriage in 2004, "Hillary" is a concept that must be balm to the trembling right-wing heart. Please, let's nip this in the bid. Stop the nonsense now before the only party that can challenge the neocon regime falls apart.

Sen. Clinton should do the right and responsible thing, open up that big campaign war-chest and dump it on someone electable.

Who might that be? Who can best use that mountain of cash? How about the one eligible Democrat who was elected President by a majority of Americans?

Herewith, the Top Ten reasons why Al Gore should be the Democrats' nominee in 2008. Feel free to rearrange, improve upon, add, print and share.

10: My dad, the Midwestern bellwether, thinks Al Gore can win.

9. Gore doesn't pander to the religious vote, and he has forcefully and eloquently spoken out about separation of church and state.

8. He is courageous. Gore has consistently called the current administration out on its radical agenda, extremism and criminality.

7. By 2008, energy conservation will be an American obsession, not just with the so-called liberal "elite." Gore, the public conservationist, drew ridicule talking about it in the days of petrol plenty, sounds pretty smart now.

6. By 2008, global warming will be a mainstream concern. Gore was talking about global warming back when it was still science fiction. He's starring in a movie about it, coming to multiplexes along with "Over the Hedge."

5. The Iraq War will be universally understood to be a disaster by 2008. Gore opposed the Iraq War first among his peers, and forcefully, in 2004.

4. Gore is squeaky clean, untouched by corruption. No lost billing records in his linen closet, no Enron or Abramoff staining his campaign finance reports.

3. He can fight. He seems to have recovered his vitality, after the apparently spirit-draining years in Washington, the U.S. Senate and the vice presidency.

2. We CAN forgive him for selecting Joe Lieberman as his running mate, as long as he doesn't ever do it again.

1. He actually was elected President. If international election monitors had been running the show in 2000, imagine how different the world would look today.

Bonus point: He's related to Gore Vidal. He could make his cousin Secretary of State. Okay. A girl can dream.

It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton

 

... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary--(an image, incidentally, that is only enhanced today by her clumsy, termagant parody of Thatcher), forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."

HILLARY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PROBLEM
(see descriptor morphs)

December 7, 1941+64

AN OPEN LETTER TO TIM ROBBINS, DAVID GEFFEN, CHRIS MATTHEWS, MAUREEN DOWD + JEANINE PIRRO

RE: a not-so-modest proposal concerning hillary clinton



Dear Concerned Americans,

Hillary Clinton's revisionist tome notwithstanding, 'living history' begets a certain symmetry. It is in that light that I make this not-so-modest proposal on this day, exactly 64 years after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The context of our concern today--regardless of political affiliation--is Iraq and The War on Terror, but the larger fear is that our democracy may not survive.

We have the requisite machines, power and know-how to defeat the enemy in Iraq and elsewhere, but do we have the will?

In particular, do we have the will to identify and defeat the enemy in our midst?

Answerable to no one, heir apparent in her own mind, self-serving in the extreme, Hillary Clinton incarnates this insidious new threat to our survival.

What we decide to do about Missus Clinton will tell us much about what awaits us in these perilous new times.

Note her accuracy defining missus clinton, tho.

She paints her as a dull, midlevel technocrat (and I use that word loosely), whose zipper-hoisting ("charm") can take her no higher.

A sort of twist on the Peter Principle.

I think this is a brilliant description of most politicians in American today, despite coming from such a putrid source.

Great observation, Mia. Nina K is saying don't do us any more socialized medicine favors, Czarina Hellary, just keep wowing the world's worst deliberative body with more of your dazzling work ethic and amendment proposing prowess. Worse yet, she's saying to stand aside for a department store mannequin who's prone to holding global warming meetings on the coldest day of every year. Ouch.

South Park hammered Al Gore's political future into the ground like a tent stake with it's "manbearpig" episode. This is after that notorious moment when Al tried to be an "Alpha Male" during the 2000 debates when he walked into the line of fire while GWB was talking and stood there like a stunned ox.

That Nina denies the fact that algore is a walking joke is a testament to her vague grasp on reality.

She's the pig who said she wanted to do the Monica thing for Clinton (and presumably nearly every male Democrat Senator) because he protected the "right" of erstwhile mothers to kill their babies after their babies were all born except for the tops of their heads.

Even worse for Gore..shortly after the 2000 election, he appeared on SNL, and did a skit showing him in a hot-tub, bare chested, with a Joe Lieberman look-alike..they were sipping wine, then interlocked arms, and engaged in a pre "Brokeback Montain" moment. When I saw that I said there's noway he's ever runign again..Just wait till they dig it up and start pushing it all over the net..

Herewith, the Top Ten reasons why Al Gore should be the Democrats' nominee in 2008. Feel free to rearrange, improve upon, add, print and share.

10: My dad, the Midwestern bellwether, thinks Al Gore can win.

Yeah? What's his record on past elections?

9. Gore doesn't pander to the religious vote, and he has forcefully and eloquently spoken out about separation of church and state.

Nonsense. Gore is a cardinal in the Church of Secular Humanism.

8. He is courageous. Gore has consistently called the current administration out on its radical agenda, extremism and criminality.

Right. The five months he spent in Vietnam in the company of a personal bodyguard bought by his old man is sure a testimony to his bravery.

7. By 2008, energy conservation will be an American obsession, not just with the so-called liberal "elite." Gore, the public conservationist, drew ridicule talking about it in the days of petrol plenty, sounds pretty smart now.

By 2008, treekissers will be getting "pantsed" by a public furious over the Gorebots' refusal to allow drilling in Alaska.

6. By 2008, global warming will be a mainstream concern. Gore was talking about global warming back when it was still science fiction. He's starring in a movie about it, coming to multiplexes along with "Over the Hedge."

see above

5. The Iraq War will be universally understood to be a disaster by 2008. Gore opposed the Iraq War first among his peers, and forcefully, in 2004.

The Iraq War will be seen as having been the right thing to do.

4. Gore is squeaky clean, untouched by corruption. No lost billing records in his linen closet, no Enron or Abramoff staining his campaign finance reports.

Let's ask the poor couple he evicted from one of his vast holdings of properties because they asked to have the toilet fixed.

3. He can fight. He seems to have recovered his vitality, after the apparently spirit-draining years in Washington, the U.S. Senate and the vice presidency.

He can howl. He can grimace. He can rant. He can look like a rhesus monkey on crack. He cannot fight since he is a coward.

2. We CAN forgive him for selecting Joe Lieberman as his running mate, as long as he doesn't ever do it again.

Spoken like a true Deaniac. Another winning tactic.

1. He actually was elected President. If international election monitors had been running the show in 2000, imagine how different the world would look today.

And the Moon landing really was faked in an LA studio. And the Pentagon really was hit by a Gao'uld death ray. And Hillary really is a moderate Republican.

Get a life.

I don't know about that one, but Ellen Ratner said she wished clinton had asked her. Her brother is a funny kind also.
