We also thought she'd self-destruct in her NY Senate campaigns.
I don't underestimate this woman. She's a very real threat.
I truly believe that she'll be easier to "Whitewater" than Kerry was to "Swiftboat".
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.
I'm not sure who I fear more as president, her or Osama Obama. I think HE is a closet Muslim and SHE is the anti-christ.
The absolute worse NIGHTMARE is for one of them to be President and the other to be VP. I would have to just go hide in a cave for 4 years if that happened.
I live in upstate NY, I do NOT underestimate her. And don't underestimate the inane women who WILL support her. Teachers....they go gaga over her. Women with a master's degree. rme
Hillary! is unelectable as president. There is literally no scenario in which this shrew can win the presidency. The electoral college prohibits it. There is simply zero chance of her gaining the 270 electoral votes required.
Count up the states where she even has a tiny chance of winning and see if it adds up to 270. It won't. She only won a Senate seat in NY because she didn't have anyone credible running against her. Rick Lazio? Where is he now? If Rudy hadn't dropped out due to his health, he would've handily beat her.
The only way she'll have any chance to win is if a Third Party pops up, ala Perot, who "gave" us Slick Willie, so if you want to be "worried" about something, worry about that! ;)
NY is a VERY liberal state. She calculated that in her run. Why not run in say, Ill. where she is from? Or, Ark? No sure thing there. Couldn't run in Mass. , sorry already taken by a Kennedy and another lib. So....what to do? NY! That's the ticket. Voila! We have a Senator Hillary Rodam Clinton! Now the stage is set. All that is needed is the makeup. Call in the clowns, where are the clowns? Oh wait, there here.
Hillery is probably one of the most dangerous political figures in history.
She's right up there with Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth I, and Evita Peron.
Those who discount the power of her political machine do so at their own peril.
