WASHINGTON Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has spent much of the last month behind closed doors, putting the final touches on a presidential campaign-in-waiting.

Her hectic schedule has been crammed with private lunches and phone conversations with elected officials and political operatives. She has sounded out Democratic Party officials from New York to Des Moines about her chances and hired a cadre of new campaign aides.

Not much mention of what she's being paid to do, that is representing our fine state as senator. I'm surrounded by Hillary fanatics. Whenever she comes up in conversation, I ask if said person can name anybody who got one of those 250,000 jobs she promised during her first campaign. Next I ask if they can name one bill she's passed during her term in office. The usual reply is that it doesn't matter, she's still great for New York.

Thanks, Pinz. Well, the pressure to impeach led to Nixon's resignation so I suppose it was a triumph of sorts for Hitlery and fed her blood/power lust.

Makes me ill just writing that...

Good list, but let's not forget:

Harold Ickes, one of the "ickiest" people in politics!!

Sidney "Sid Vicious" Blumenthal, sure to be a devoted suck-up (and vicious attack-dog) for Hillary, either in his present role as a left-wing commentator or else in some new official campaign role if he just has to get back into the power circle

Mandy Grunwald, husband of Mrs. Mandy Grunwald (also known as Matt Cooper) of Pflamegate fame

"The funny part about all this is she is still going to lose. And, she'll suck down a lot of DemocRAT resources with her."

If she was going to lose, she wouldn't run.

I think the election will come down to: can she steal enough votes where she needs them.

You know that she can. Why else would she be running?

I hear ya. I doubt that her blood lush needs much care or attention. It seems to have perfected the art of being self sustaining.

We need Mia T as part of this little crew. The more research we can feed her, the better, imo. :-)

Mia, don't know if you've seen this thread, I'll risk an unnecessary ping... ;-)

To stay out of jail?

I couldn't believe that the National Archives people didn't stop Sandy Berger because they thought he had too much stature to be doing what they thought he was doing. Well, yes I can. The Clintonistas are always willing to do the unbelievable.

thanx, pinz.

What they call 'tighter,' I see as rigid, scripted, minus even a semblance of warm-bloodedness and dexterity that characterizes the husband.

I think Commander Queeg would be a more fitting analogy, and therefore I propose a new Free Republic rule:

Any thread about Hitlery's presidential campaign must have pictures of . . .

Hillary is old news. One would hope people are looking forward, not backward.

Your excellent list omitted the exceptionally odious Sidney Blumenthal, and equally odious Howard Wolfson.

Hillary is at heart, a coward, like her weak, lilly livered HINO. She is also not very bright or deep.

She comes off as a socialist robot, that's for sure.

If any of you have missed Hillary's visit to The View, MiaT has links on her thread to video here:

Thanks for finding and posting that, Mia! :-)

Clintons have a unique system of interlocking ligaments and bones in their legs, which serves as a sling to suspend their body weight without strain while their muscles are completely relaxed. Thus, Clintons don't have to extent any energy consciously to remain standing - their legs are locked in the proper position during sleep.

Most Clintons do most of their sleeping while standing, but patterns differ. Veterinarians we spoke to said it was not unusual for Clintons to stand continuously for as long as a month, or more. Because Clintons are heavy but have relatively fragile bones, lying in one position for a long time can cause muscle cramps.

While one can only speculate about why the Clinton body evolved in this fashion, most experts believe that wild Clintons slept while standing for defensive purposes. Wayne O. Kester, D.V.M., executive director of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, told us that in the wild, the Clinton chief means of protection and escape from predators was its speed. "They were much less vulnerable while standing and much less apt to be caught by surprise than when lying down".
