Skip to comments.Clinton Dons a 1960s-Era Anti-War Cloak

WELLESLEY, Mass. Senator Clinton is describing her opposition to the war in Iraq as an extension of Eugene McCarthy's position in the 1960s movement against the war in Vietnam.
Mrs. Clinton's comments came at an energy-charged rally yesterday at her alma mater, Wellesley College. Her visit, the ostensible purpose of which was to announce a new Web site aimed at younger voters, hillblazers.com, created palpable excitement on campus. Hundreds of students lined up amid Wellesley's autumnal splendor for a chance to hear the speech of the 1969 graduate and then moved and bopped to the strands of Smash Mouth's "I'm a Believer" and the Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" as they awaited her appearance. A loud "wooo" had followed the exhortation of a male voice suggesting that attendees "get excited" as they entered. The friendly homecoming represented a sharp contrast from Tuesday's MSNBC debate in Philadelphia, when Mrs. Clinton found herself under attack from Senator Obama and Senator Edwards. She credited the school with preparing her "to compete in the all boys club of presidential politics."
In a personal speech, Mrs. Clinton made reference to her own biography, reminding students she was once a student at the college during a time of war.(continued)

"You there! Yes, you! Why aren't you cheering for me?"
A better musical choice would have been “I’ll Be Watching You” by the Police.
Sen. Sose: "Jay, there are literally millions of people who have never read a printed book.
You cannot believe, Jay, how many people I have met who have told me
that MY book is the FIRST BOOK they have ever read."

No doubt she will be coming to Ithaca soon. She has got to hide out in some sheltered safe havens after the debate debacle. Besie if she show up in NYDS some of us state citizend might want to know her position on Spitz’s initiatives.
Wow. At the same time that Al Gore was at Harvard inspiring the writing of Love Story? It certainly is a small world.

Does this mean her worthless hubby is going to climb a tree buck naked again?
From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Rodham_Clinton :
...volunteered for Republican candidate Barry Goldwater in the U.S. presidential election of 1964.
In 1965, Rodham enrolled in Wellesley College, where she majored in political science. She served as president of the Wellesley Young Republicans organization during her freshman year. However, due to her evolving views regarding the American Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War, she stepped down from that position; she characterized her own nature as that of “a mind conservative and a heart liberal.” ... and became a supporter of the anti-war presidential nomination campaign of Democrat Eugene McCarthy.[...
She attended the “Wellesley in Washington” summer program at the urging of Professor Alan Schechter, who assigned Rodham to intern at the House Republican Conference so she could better understand her changing political views. Rodham was invited by Representative Charles Goodell, a moderate New York Republican, to help Governor Nelson Rockefellers late-entry campaign for the Republican nomination.
Rodham attended the 1968 Republican National Convention in Miami, where she decided to leave the Republican Party for good; she was upset over how Richard Nixon’s campaign had portrayed Rockefeller and what Rodham perceived as the “veiled” racist messages of the convention.
I wish I had known that she’d be there.Wellesley College is just a very short and easy drive from me.I would have held a sign with Webb Hubbell’s picture on it and the words “I guess I’ll just have to roll over one more time”.
LUG=lesbian until graduation (from Wellesley)
LAM=lesbian after marriage* see tagline
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.....
the hell there isn’t.
AH Yes...a safe house for her stupid ideas!...She doesn’t have to debate anyone...Safe, Hillary Safe! and your puppets in the biased media will do your bidding.
Well there are a lot more boys at Wellesley than there were when I was there. I wonder how it is that they were bussed in from Brown or wherever...maybe her FEC receipts will show. And, “hundreds” of students? showed up? Wellesley has over 2,000 students—WHERE WERE THEY??
It has that "look" to it.

She can’t always hide in that liberal cesspool of the NE part of this great country. Come on down to Texas.....we would like for you to answer some questions....
AMEN to that! ...and I guarantee that she will HEAR us ask them too.
I swear, either her makeup has slipped, or she has painted herself for a war dance.

I just had to go look at footnote "20" in Wikipedia to see what Nixon said that was so "racist".
Turns out it's a cite of Clinton's own quote (long after 1968) on her "perception" of the Republican convention:
At the partys convention in Miami, she met Frank Sinatra, shared an elevator with John Wayne and decided to leave the Republican Party for good. She was particularly furious at how she felt Rockefeller had been trashed by the Nixon people, Mr. Schechter said.
Im done with this, absolutely, Mrs. Clinton recalled thinking upon hearing Mr. Nixons acceptance speech. She characterized the Republicanism of her youth as one of fiscal conservatism and social moderation, and at odds with what she viewed as the intolerance of Miami.
All of a sudden you get all these veiled messages, frankly, that were racist, Mrs. Clinton said of the convention. I may not have been able to explain it, but I could feel it.
So even back then a Clinton was parsing her words and tap dancing. This is, of course, if you believe this was her mindset 40 years ago and not just made-up around the year 2000.
“reminding students she was once a student at the college during a time of war.”
So that qualifies her to be a wartime President?
I’ve heard women complain how Hillary won’t even walk across the stage on Letterman. She always appears already sitting down, unlike most other guests who have to walk.
(If you didn’t guess why- they resent that a supposed feminist doesn’t have the self-confidence to show her big rear-end in public, like normal women have to do.)
Wasn’t she a Goldwater Girl?? Anyway, anything she wore in the 60’s wouldn’t fit her fat ass today.
With quotes like the following, there's no question what she is today:
"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
"We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society.
"It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity."
"We can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.""
"We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own turf in order to create this common ground."
"I certainly think the free market has failed."
"I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector [oil] in the entire economy, that they are being watched."
"What I want to do is take those profits and apply them to alternative energy."
"I have a million ideas. The country can't afford them all."
Karl Marx or Frederick Engels said none of these things; Hillary Clinton said them all.
See here for more gems from Hillary:
This scumbag voted to AUTHORIZE the Iraq War and tried to sound tough for the first year or more of the war, so to pander so blatantly to the permanent antiwar fanatics is especially contemptible. HER vote supported putting US troops into harm’s way, and now she is trying to rewrite history and pretend that she is a dedicated peacenik at heart.
Typical lying, pandering Demagogue.
