Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will embark on a widely anticipated campaign for the White House Saturday, a former first lady intent on becoming the nation's first female president

Clinton was expected to disclose plans to form a presidential exploratory committee on her Web site, according to Democratic officials familiar with the matter.

Clinton's planned announcement, coming days after Sen. Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) shook up the 2008 race with his bid to become the first black to occupy the White House, establishes the most diverse political field. Clinton is considered the front-runner, with Obama and 2004 vice presidential nominee John Edwards top contenders. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who would be the first Hispanic, intends to announce his plans on Sunday

Many Democrats, eager to reclaim the White House after eight years of President Bush, fret that she carries too much baggage from her husband's scandal-plagued presidency to win a general election. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070120/ap_on_el_pr/clinton2008_5

It's not a smooth road ahead for Hillary from here. At least not how it will be made to appear. The chain smoking wahabi educated Obama is an obstacle that has been created for her by the DriveByMedia, that she will have to surmount and overcome and emerge victorious from, as the comeback witch.

But I have to wonder, what if the DBM genuinely wants Obama to win ? I mean, what will be a greater liberal accomplishment in a president -- a white lesbian , or a black Muslim ?

Not to mention that the Hildabeest has enough skeletons in her closet to rival Arlington National Cemetary. And if she gets the dhimmicrat nod every single one of them is going to get exhumed.

I am scared.... you know, no matter who comes out on top in the Democratic Candidates for President, who are the Republicans going to run against their bad choice? If the Republicans pick right, they can easily defeat whoever the Democrats pick.

No , eventually Hillary will find herself in front of troops, or in front of the general public in a coffee shop on Main Street America, and she is going to find herself confronted with some real honest Questions, and real honest public opinion.

This will be the BIG news of the weekend on all the cable networks. They will treat it as a BIG surprise. They will beat it to death. The Sunday morning shows will be scrambling to bow down at the alter of Queen Cankles. Who will she grace with her presence first?

How does Obama's cemetery compare with Hillary's ? Maybe in the end the Dems will go by the size of the cemetery alone, who knows. And if Rove's going to be in on this one, rest assured there will be armies of people working full time (and overtime) exhuming skeletons. (And in the case of Hillary, literally so.)

Has she, in fact, moved at all?

 

From HILLARY "Zelig" CLINTON: WHEN A CONGENITAL LIAR'S RUTHLESS AMBITION EXCEEDS HER ABILITY:


This brilliant Alinsky-clinton observation by beyond the sea is the perfect segue to an analysis of Alinsky's influence on hillary clinton... which leads inexorably to hillary rodham's closely guarded Wellesley thesis. (Plan to do an extended piece on that shortly.)

In the Wellesley thesis, hillary discussed "how to change the American political culture." This discussion occurred in the context of a tribute to the leftist political organizer, her mentor, Saul Alinsky.

Does missus clinton reveal her own thoughts on the radicalization and even balkanization of the American political process? We can't yet say with certainty because the thesis has been sealed--closed to public scrutiny--from the moment missus clinton insinuated her radicalizing, balkanizing, liquidating self onto the national political stage.

If I had to guess, I would say she adopted Saul Alinsky's theories and practices without modification: hillary clinton exhibits no creativity, no vision of her own and tends to glom onto the latest fashion, whether it's Alinsky's Stalinist methods... or New Age occultism, recall her attraction to the teachings of

  • Marianne Williamson, who some described as a "Jewish charismatic spiritualist"
  • Ken Scott Nateshvar, yogi to the stars
  • and the pièce de résistance, Jean Houston, the Director of the Foundation for Mind Research.

Houston was described by some as a "New Age" author who "studied psychic experiences and mystical connections to historical figures and other worlds." When the story of the Houston connection became public Houston became known as hillary clinton's "Eleanor Roosevelt Conduit."

Although she baked no cookies, didn't do illicit land or cattle deals and stood by no man, hillary clinton starred in the triple role of the Cook, the Thief and his Wife. Her lover was played at once vaporously and in workmanlike fashion by the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt, with Janet Reno, between her stints rendering intermittent injustice for the Husband, as the reliable stand-in. Sidney Blumenthal was the stand-in for the Cook and Craig Livingstone the stand-in for the Thief. The last-minute addition of Christopher Hitchens as the snitch was a stroke of absolute genius notwithstanding its cerebral accident, its predictable-if-perfect pitch (or its facile alliteration).

There is a great emotional likeness there too. Thank you for putting the photos side by side.

On Alinsky (http://www.vcn.bc.ca/citizens-handbook/rules.html)

For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting what is wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it. The two are linked. If people feel they don't have the power to change a bad situation, they stop thinking about it.

According to Alinsky, the organizer -- especially a paid organizer from outside -- must first overcome suspicion and establish credibility. Next the organizer must begin the task of agitating: rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy. This is necessary to get people to participate. An organizer has to attack apathy and disturb the prevailing patterns of complacent community life where people have simply come to accept a bad situation. Alinsky would say, "The first step in community organization is community disorganization."--beyond the sea

Remember, CNN has ALREADY hired a Clinton-Connected polling firm for 2008...

Expect them to be ALL CLINTON, ALL THE TIME...

They have been setting this up FOR YEARS, and every Washington Dem Wonk is lined up for thier piece of the CASH she's going to generate.

Nevada was specificly picked for HER to win the nomination, as the chosen messiah of the PARTY ESTABLISHMENT, and to diminish the influence of the left, and the "Grassroots"..

All of those moves are now going to be coming home to roost, and the left is going to be standing around asking what happened...
