Skip to comments.Hillary Reveals Her Inner Self
Posted on 11/01/2007 10:04:27 PM PDT by gpapa
The story isn't that the Democrats finally took on Hillary Clinton. Nor is it that they were gentlemanly to the point of gingerly and tentative. There was an air of "Please, somebody kill her for me so I can jump in and show high minded compassion at her plight!"
Barack Obama, with his elegance and verbal fluency really did seem like that great and famous political figure from his home state of Illinois--Adlai Sevenson, who was not at all hungry, not at all mean, and operated at a step removed from the grubby game. Mr. Obama is like someone who would write in his diaries, "I shall point out Estes Kefauver's manifold inconsistencies, then to luncheon with Arthur and Marietta."
The odd thing is it's easier to be a killer when you know exactly what you stand for, when you have a real philosophy. The philosophy becomes a platform from which you can strike without ambivalence. Mr. Obama seems born to be mild. But still, that's not the story.
Nor is it that John Edwards seems like a furry animal on a wheel, trying so hard, to the point he's getting a facial tic, and getting nowhere, failing to get his little furry paws on his prey, not knowing you have to get off the wheel to get to the prey. You have to stop the rounded, rote, bromidic phrases, and use a normal language that cannot be ignored.

Great article, Peggy really delivers the message to the “persuadable middle’.
I hope she’s right about the old strategy no longer working in her favor. Hillary is stuck in time but this isn’t the 90s, or 70s, and we need someone with the ability to see that and respond appropriately to the threats of this time. Reruns are for summers and Hollywood strikes, not national and cultural survival.
that makes Peggy 1 for 7 in new articles
She’s too cerebral. It’s almost like she can’t stop writing or must grind out a minimum number of words. The verbiage, IMHO, overwhelms the message. But otherwise, I like what she wrote, and I read her every Friday in WSJ.
From the headline I expected to see her in true Succubus form....
“I shall point out Estes Kefauver’s manifold inconsistencies, then to luncheon with Arthur and Marietta.”
Peggy, you are sounding more and more like Maureen Dowd.
I expect to see you wearing your red heels and setting at a bar soon.
ew. Just ew. :p
"She has been accused of doubletalk and she has denied it. And she is right. It was triple talk, quadruple talk, Olympic level nonresponsiveness. And it was, even for her, rather heavy and smug."
Honestly, how could anyone listening to her not feel their head spinning with her statements?
It’s a roundabout way of saying Hillary is going to have to pay the piper.
Bush, clinton, Bush, clinton, Bush...
Ack! I don’t think I like the cycle!
Don’t forget the third Clinton. By the time we have eight years of Hillary, eight years of another Bush, Chelsea might be old enough to run. I liked the t-shirt a poster directed me to awhile back. It had a picture of Bill and Hillary and the words, “Do not resuscitate”
Like an evil Lawrence Welk..."Take it, Vince. And ah one, ah two, ah three..."
She summed up Stevenson's tone perfectly.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with writing stylishly in order to make a point. Not everything has to be written to the lowest common denominator.
Hmmm...just saw this on Wikipedia regarding the bio of Huma Abedin...it wasn’t there yesterday.

Huma Abedin and Hillary ClintonHuma Abedin is an aide to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. Media sources describe her as one of Clinton’s closest advisers, particularly on issues involving the Middle East, and often comment on her purportedly renowned competence, striking personal appearance, as well as the general confusion regarding details of her personal life.
Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to an Indian father and Pakistani mother, both Muslims. When she was two years old, the family relocated to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Abedin returned to the United States to attend George Washington University.
If she were a genuine, honest person, this would be HRC's campaign slogan.
