Sen. Hillary Clinton tells Katie Couric: I will be the Democratic nominee
Orlando Sentinel ^ | Nov. 26, 2007 | Staff

Posted on 11/26/2007 5:47:03 PM PST by jdm

Is Sen. Hillary Clinton feeling any doubts about winning the Democratic nomination for president? Not at all.

"It will be me," Clinton tells Katie Couric in an interview to air Monday on the "CBS Evening News With Katie Couric." The broadcast airs at 6:30 p.m. on WKMG-Channel 6.

Couric also asked if Clinton is concerned that Oprah Winfrey could boost Sen. Barack Obama by campaigning for him in three key states.

"No, at the end of the day," Clinton says. "I'm proud to have my husband support me ... with his knowledge, experience and incredible ability to vouch for me."

That settles it! Hillary’s victory is inevitable!

She should relax and pick out the draperies for the White House. There is no need to worry about those pesky Republicans.

Let It Be Me
~The Everly Brothers~

I blessed the day I found you,
I want to stay around you,
And so I beg you,
Let it be me.

Don’t take this heaven from one,
If you must cling to someone,
Now and forever,
Let it be me.

Each time we meet love,
I find complete love,
Without your sweet love,
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely,
Tell me you love me only,
And that you’ll always
Let it be me

And that you’ll always,
Let it be me.

Each time we meet love,
I find complete love,
Without your sweet love,
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely,
Tell me you’ll love me only,
And that you’ll always,
Let it be me.

"It will be me,"

She really means, "It will be I." And they say the President is grammatically challenged.

I think "It will be I" is the correct grammatical form. Minor thing as most people say it this way now, but I was taught differently, and I did not go to Wellesley. Nominative case, is is present form of verb "to be", linking verb.

Wow, I don't want to quibble about it, but they are arguing over whether it should be "this is she" or "this is her" on some discussion board. I was taught, "this is she".

BTW I hope it is not she. I can safely get around the grammatical conundrum by saying, "I hope it is not Hillary". I can be more emphatic and use more colorful language about it, but you catch my drift.

She already has the draperies picked out, they're the same ones she and Bill stole on Jan 20, 2001, (along with the White House silverware.)

I hope she’s right. She’ll be much easier to defeat than Obama. And frankly I think that if Obama is the dem nominee and he loses, that will increase racial hostility in this country.

America is ready for a black president, but not a liberal one; a black presidential candidate with a liberal agenda would scare most voters far too much. Mark my words, the first black president will be a conservative or moderate.

The words "iron bitch" have more color and expression :-), also feel like in hardness of iron, color me gray, etc., mind you I never refer to her that manner because of the way I was brought up, but if I put my mind to it, I could come up with more . . . .

Yup, score one for me. But there may be those who disagree. It didn't used to be you could start a sentence with a conjunction. Everybody does it now, even well-written newspaper articles. I don't know what is taught in English any more, probably global warning. I missed some of the finer points on tests, that's for sure. And read Beowulf on my own long after I got out of school, now see there is a movie out based on it. I don't remember a thing about the substance of that poem or saga, only that it was the first something in English. But I digress and drift far off the tropical course, I mean topical course.

Hillary may get the nod, but can she win? That is the question. I kind of held my nose when I voted for GWB, but not because I disliked him all that much, just didn't want another Bush. When push comes to shove, I don't know what loyal Democrats will do. A lot don't like her, but if she and Obama kiss and make up, we are in for something.

I think "It will be I" is the correct grammatical form. Minor thing as most people say it this way now, but I was taught differently, and I did not go to Wellesley.

I believe that, in 1968, Wellesley was teaching that the concept of "good English" was nothing but an exclusionary cultural construct of the white patriarchy and that it was every scholar's revolutionary duty to fight the system by recognizing the equal relative worth of all possible alternative Englishes.

There is, however, an alternative explanation, and that is this: that Hillary is a second-rate phony graduate of a second-rate phony school; that her main talent is that of figuring out what the gatekeeper of the moment wants to hear and parroting it back with as much sincerity as possible, and that, given that the gatekeepers at Wellesley were nearly (but not quite) as stupid and phony as Hillary, she breezed in, breezed through, and breezed out the door without anyone figuring out that she was just another boring mediocrity who had figured out that the trick to fooling a bunch of pseudo-intellectuals is simply to spout a bunch of tendentious nonsense about Marxist paradigm-shifting and similar buell.

Now, unfortunately, the problem is that the "gatekeeper" is the voting public, but Hillary thinks the gatekeeper is the main stream media, or maybe George Soros. This has led her to make some really bone-headed miscalculations.

Good for you, Doug.

If it was a Republican candidate’s name in your email, your phone would be ringing off the hook.

The silence of the MSM in this entire matter shows their complicity in keeping bad news about the Anointed One out of the public’s eye.

Geez, maybe even I could have graduated from that snobby place if that is the case, doubt if I'd have been accepted. All you have to do is suck up to a few male professors, and I avoided my teachers like the plague, don't speak unless spoken to, came by it honestly because I was always in trouble with one or more of them for something or other, got expelled from hs for 3 days. Surely you know whereof you speak, and talk about colorful language, you are right on. Buell? Typo or my limited vocabulary? It was my friend Graybeard who came up with the colorful language.

I only had a 3.2? GPA out of hs because I never cracked a book, just wrote my papers and did the math assignments. What I learned was through osmosis. I never knew what the heck I wanted to be, just that I didn't want to go to Grinnell like my mom wanted me to. So my sister graduates magna cum laude from Smith. Now that place has gone to the dogs. I went to see her there in the 60's when I was married to my dear ex, and I think she couldn't get rid of us fast enough. I wasn't even hurt at the time. We were a lowly service couple during the Nam years, he stationed at Ft. Devens. I think she was ashamed of me/us in front of her high falutin' friends. He wasn't an officer, and it is debatable if he was ever a gentleman. Good-looking though.

I took his photo in a race a couple years ago. After I clicked the shutter, he comes up even with me, I keep looking straight ahead. "Do you know who I am". A monotone, "no", replies I. "Your ex-husband" and walks on up the hill. Um, that's odd, I'm thinking. Had to blow up the photo and look at his name tag to make sure I hadn't imagined that one. It was HE. I didn't know who he was, hadn't seen him for 18 years or so, didn't care to. Isn't life odd?

The word "buell" is an utterance which arose from the very heart of the fervid youth culture of upstate New York as it existed during approximately the same time interval that Hillary was ensconced in academic finetude at lovely Wellesley, an institution which practically defines the word ennui as it applies in a group setting.

To get the full frisson effect of "buell," one must allow air pressure to build up behind the glossalpharyngym tympanum oscularium, thereby propelling the labial stop "b" or "buh" vocalization to leap forth with an explosive aspect.

LOL! You be a talkin' way over my head, and I don't mind. Where the heck did YOU go to school and where did you learn that lingo? Your post exudes measured sarcasm until you build up to the grand finale, le coup de grace, if you will.

Gotta shift gears real quicklike here and finish the blurbs for the photos I'm entering in a contest that have GOT to get in the mail to meet the deadline Nov 30, been putting it off because, I couldn't get motivated to WRITE! It just occurred to me maybe I should enter the one of my ex and the story behind that one ha ha. Put it in their humor category. I didn't have one for that. But eight is the limit, and I'm committed. And too tired to write up the last one.

Would you believe I was almost tempted to enter the one of my granddaughter with Hillary? It fits the category Iowa people, at least my granddaughter is from here, and it plays a big part in the national elections, why don't ask me. My pro friend and others thought it inappropriate for a contest, and it might appear that the magazine was endorsing her. My sister's husband took her photo with Giuliani awhile back, and it is off center. My other daughter got on a news website when she went to see Obama and they asked her for a sound bite. The 10:00 tv news for that channel cut most of his speech and her. But mom, it said CBS on the camera. I said that's probably the local affiliate.

I don't let people take my photo if I can help it, don't know who I'd go see anyway. I said somebody with a cute kid or puppy will win. Then I found my daughter's photo of a cute kid and puppy, had a big print made, and am entering that one for her. I even hope it wins lol.

I think "It will be I"

"It" is the subject, "me" is the direct object. You don't say "The ball will hit I.", do you? "I" if you are the subject of the sentence. "Me" otherwise.
