Yep .. no surprise

But I am trying to figure out her nasty attack on Obama

Because I really thought those 2 were not running against each other .. but they were working together

My thinking was their plan is he would end up being her VP .. with the plan that she would serve her 8 years .. then he would be open to 8 years due to his age

Now the womens' magazines will go orgasmic, with pictures of the Hill and the words "First Woman President?" all over their covers. She will no longer be acting as senator, but will be appearing on as many media outlets as she possibly can. The hype will be to much to take.
A mind-numbed public will march in lockstep to the polls, eager to prove that a "woman can be president".
And the USA, a once great country, will be led by Hill and the leftist congress right into the socialist paradise that the Hill has always dreamed of.

Partially revealed to us maybe but I'd be willing to bet that he was well aware. He probably just thought he was somehow immune. We shall never know.

That was/is my thought as well and may still be the plan. All Hillary has to do is deny she knew anything about these little hit pieces on BHO....that seems to always work for her.

I think it still may be their plan. (The insults may just be for show and part of the ruse).

But then again......Hillary is a racist, so she may not want Obama to bring her down......

The media will give her a pass for anything. They'll believe any denial she comes out with.

She can get away with murder and the American people will never find out.

We also thought she'd self-destruct in her NY Senate campaigns. I don't underestimate this woman. She's a very real threat

This "exploratory committee" step is a holding action, a response to Obama-mania. She is still not certain to run. She has yet to settle on a winning strategy, although I think the outlines are starting to emerge. If she decides finally to run, we will be treated to a softer, friendlier, yet firm on security Hillary--a security Mom with grit. She is paying close attention to Pelosi's SanFran Granny Nan act, to see how it plays. If I am right, and I did predict with certainty her senate victory in 2000, she will be a formidable candidate--"the NEW Hillary," like "the New Nixon" in 1968.

Prepare for much weeping and gnashing of teeth and barf alerts galore.

She will win what? The nomination? Yes. The election? I wouldn't count on it.

She's hated more than any woman in this country by the people who don't worship her, and she's got more baggage than can be dealt with, even with a fawning media, IMO.

That could be it

I keep remembering an article I read way back about Hellary's first run for the Senate and how the NYT did a nasty hit piece on her in the beginning of her run and how that it was their way of saying they were fair and balanced in their reporting

But they didn't do another one like that afterwards

There was another story that caught my attention .. it was the Maureen Dowd piece about Obama having big ears .. but MSNBC didn't report that .. they only reported it was Rush that made fun of his ears

... about the bold but practical changes we need to overcome six years of Bush administration failures.

Let's see...

Universal Healthcare - Bold, NOT. Practical, NOT.

Tax increases for the "universal good" - Bold, NOT. Practical, NOT.

Just in general, the RATS are neither bold nor practical.

But, then, neither are the Pubs :)

Clinton, who was re-elected to a second term last November, said she will spend the next two years "doing everything in my power to limit the damage George W. Bush can do. But only a new president will be able to undo Bush's mistakes and restore our hope and optimism."

This kinda crap infuriates me. The Bush family treats the clintoons with such class and grace, and the toons insult them at every turn. How do they look the Bushes in the eyes?

I still don't think she can win though, mystery. There's just too much to hide.

Maybe it's the cockeyed optimist in me, but her HINO at least has charisma. When the American people hear her giving speeches their hair will curl.

Don't you know that's "ancient" history

That's right. Anything that happened during the Clinton administration will be designated as "old news" and buried by the media. After eight years, many people will have forgotten why they hated her in the first place, and her new persona will be, if not charming, at least different enough that people will say "she has changed--give her a chance." It worked for Nixon, and he was at least as devoid of charm as Hillary on a bad day.

Could be, Mo.

They'll ask a hard question and then just smile and nod when she lies through her teeth in response.

But the truth is a powerful thing. She's a nothing, and that will come through........eventually.

Just think about this. The media will cover every speech she makes. THINK about how she sounds. THINK about what she says.

Even with skillful editing, they can't hide that she truly is a witch.

The MSM is NEVER going to make her look bad or inform the American people about her baggage. By the time they are through, you too will want to vote for her cause she's a saint and the only folks with too much baggage are the Republicans.

Well I don't agree that the GOP is stupid, but they certainly seem to have lost their spine, and that could be a factor.

We NEED a good, strong, protect America candidate, and I'm afraid that the Republican party is afraid to do that.

I'm just talking about how very, very UNattractive Hillary Clinton is. That has been hidden from the American people until now, but I don't think it can be completely covered up by anyone if she's out there every day, in debates, etc.

btw, the number of people who will vote for her simply because she's female aren't going to win it for her. There are most likely an equal amount of sexists who will vote against her for the very same reason, and they'll cancel each other out, IMO.

And I want you to join me not just for the campaign but for a conversation about the future of our country -- about the bold but practical changes we need to overcome six years of Bush administration failures.

How much hard earned labor compensation will be confiscated in your efforts to prove your personal fallacy of six years if you are elected is my first question Ms. Beast.

I've always said she's the only person on the political scene today who could incite a civil war. And having said that, I don't believe that she can win the election.

But I sure as hell think she could steal it-- they almost did in 2000.

One more observation: this looks to me like a last-ditch effort on her part; I think she's gambling that 2012 is so far away and the future so hidden that she dare not risk sitting this out. A now-or-never scenario in that light smacks of desperation.

I hope Hussein Obama is ready for it. It's going to be an entertaining couple of years, in the sort of way that watching a racoon get hit by a car is entertaining.

I know the MSM has power to convince the mindless (I certainly hope you weren't really implying that I would be convinced), but the number one factor in electing a President in this television age is 'likeability.'

Just think about that, and then think about Hillary, and you should be encouraged.

No, she was using Obama as a stalking horse, but then he started to gain some traction and threaten to bleed off support, so she had to do something different to rein him in. She has been content to lurk in that safe so-called fourth place position but the race has accelerated faster than she expected, so she has had to take corrective action.

I agree that she'll have the backing of the Democrats and a lot of swing voters assuming she makes the race as the nominee.... However she'll get a lot of negative exposure during the primaries assuming any of the other democrats chose to be serious contenders..... If she's allowed to speak in general terms then it's to her advantage but if anyone can force her to speak in specifics then she'll not do as well.
