WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ten years later, it still takes a village.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is polishing up her most famous phrase as she edges closer to a presidential run. She writes in a new introduction to her book ``It Takes a Village'' that Sept. 11 and the Internet make her tome on child-rearing even more relevant today.
The 10th anniversary edition of the book goes on sale Dec. 12. An early copy was obtained by The Associated Press.
The new version of the book features a smiling Clinton surrounded by children. The New York senator did not appear on the cover of the 1996 book.
In the new introduction, the senator acknowledges the book's title provided plenty of comic opportunities for headline writers, adding that her favorite was ``It Takes a Village to Raise a Pig.''
The introduction by Clinton argues that the core points she made as First Lady are if anything more important now that the Internet and electronic devices like MP3 players have such large roles in children's lives.
To promote the new version, Clinton will appear at a bookstore in Manhattan's Lincoln Center on Monday, Dec. 18, and two days later at a bookstore in Westchester County. She will also make national television appearances that week on a morning show and a talk show promoting the book.
No, Hillary. It takes a family.
Communism fuzzily packaged.
AKA - "It takes a commune, and I should be the supreme leader."
It takes a Clinton to thwart the internet's end-run-around the government. Note 9/11 and the internet are lumped together. Both are considered "threats".
First of all, that "It takes a village" is NOT Hillary's most famous phrase unless you also believe that garbage about her being named in honor of Edmund Hillary's famous jaunt up Mt. Everest. Edmund Hillary was part of a British reconnaissance expedition to Everest in 1951 led by Eric Shipton before joining the successful British attempt at Everest in 1953. Rodham was born 10-27-47. Ain't math a bitch? "It takes a village" is an attitude shared by most Communists who do not want to bother raising their offspring and prefer the government and everyone else to do it. Most "villages" have a village idiot like Rodham but mothers and fathers cannot be found there.
The village must use these as brainwashing tools.
She plagiarized the phrase...just like she does everything else she talks about. She hasn't had an original thought since she was born/hatched/dealt (take your pick).
The "It takes a village" phrase had been around for years before she confiscated it for her own use. As I recall, it was used in African cultures originally. (where it once took a village to even kill something for supper)
"VILLAGE" is this witch's code word for COMMUNE.
She MEANS, "It takes COMMUNism."
Garbage. Sorry, Hillary, I'm not voting for you.
Mrs Clinton, may your presidential hopes meet with the same level of success as did the last junior Senator from New York who ran for President. :)
"It takes a village" is the motto of the Nanny State.
She sounds like she's upset that Rush is pod-casting.
We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.
Not that the DBM and most of the Stupid Party will remind anyone of it.
That's the leftist dogma: It takes a "Village" (the government). It never takes a family and it never, ever, takes a father. That is forbidden.
with Hillary it takes a strap on......godless loser
Hitlery Clintoon: " We will take things away from you, for the COMMON good. "
Probably Oprah. Those two deserve each other :)
The Hildabeaste could get a much bigger bang for her buck by going on Rush's program. But I'm not sure he'd want her.
And, unlike Oprah, Rush would ask her meaningful questions.
It takes a pillage.
The very day that Rush has that witch on his program is the day I quit Rush 24/7 and will turn OFF my radio.....
IT TAKES A FAMILY!!
when will bubba's book, "it takes an intern" be coming out ?
