Hillary in the Hamptons

Sen. Clinton arrives ready to raise funds in East End; curtails questions about debate before primary

U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton kicked off her Long Island fundraising tour Friday with an announcement about federal funding to save the shorelines and sidestepped whether she'd debate primary challenger Jonathan Tasini.

(snip)

"Well, we'll just have to see how the campaign develops," Clinton said at Overlook Beach in Babylon town.

(snip)

"I am lucky enough to have a lot of friends and supporters who are trying to help me by raising money so that I can wage a vigorous campaign and hopefully win re-election," she said.

At Windmill Lane in East Hampton, the private road where she arrived after 7 p.m. for a fundraiser in a low-slung, white residence with a pebble driveway, police ordered photographers and reporters to keep at least 25 feet back.

Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, are reportedly staying overnight at a $9.4 million house nearby owned by Manhattan financier Terry Meehan.

Meehan, 58, a longtime Clinton backer and one-time Georgetown University schoolmate of the ex-president, was expected to be out of town. He's lending out the 6.4-acre spread for the party, according to a source.

Earlier in the afternoon at a news conference, there was one awkward moment between Sen. Clinton and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy. They had joined local children on the sand to plant beach grass to prevent erosion. When Clinton tried to rise from a seated position, Levy attempted to help her up by placing his hands under her armpits. Clinton resisted and warned him that they might fall into the pit.

I'd pay at least $5.00 to see a video of that.

He had his hands under her armpits?

How many of his fingers dissolved before he could wash?

Can anyone imagine placing his hands under her arms. I'd rather dip 'em in an acid bath. Well, then again, it's probably the same thing.

You know damn well that only Republicans/conservatives are required to fulfill their duties. Dhimmocrats/liberals are only required to be "concerned" about _________. And even then that's too much work for them; they'd rather be fundraising than defending the country.

My sister is among the misinformed and thinks the witch is the smartest woman ever. There is a capital M on the word misinformed where my sister is concerned. I do not understand how anyone could think she is anything but evil to the core. The only good thing where my sister is concerned is that she didn't vote in '04, never re-registered when she moved, and hopefully she won't vote in '08 either!

One's dislike of Hillary should carry over to Bill and to those who escort him around and treat him like a son. And you know who I mean.

I support W. when he is conservative. I do not bash him - only his misbegotten RINO policies.
