MANCHESTER, N.H. Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton have been in career-threatening scrapes before, but never quite like the one they face in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, when nothing less than their would-be dynasty will be on the line.
In trying to battle back from her loss in the Iowa caucuses to Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, Mrs. Clinton is recalibrating her message in hopes of producing Comeback Kid: The Sequel achieving the reversal of fortune her husband pulled off with his second-place finish here in the Democratic nomination contest in 1992.
Mrs. Clinton, after arriving here at 4 a.m. Friday, used a rally in Nashua to begin focusing on young voters and independents, two groups that flocked to the Obama banner in Iowa. She said she wanted to appeal to young people, and surrounded herself with them at the rally, in contrast to her caucus night party where older, familiar faces from the Clinton administration and her political team stood out.

On another note: Hey, Hildy, politics is like football. Once in a while the stars align and you get a great run. But take the pieces of the puzzle apart and try to reassemble them in a different setting, a different time, different circumstances and even Joe Montana doesn’t play like Joe Montana any more.
I read one article where it was reported that Maddy Albright took to the stage at a Hildabeast rally in Iowa and began dancing to some pop song in an effort to juice the crowd.
Well, that’s mighty nice news! Thank you!
Hip? What about the Thighs?
Doesn’t matter. They are melted together.
I do think an Obama nomination would finish off the Klintoons for good, which (as Bill Parcells,in another context, is wont to say) is a “good thing, not a bad thing.”
However, I do think that Obama will be difficult to beat in Nov. That said, I think it will be difficult for any Republican to win in Nov, and, among the Rat candidates, Obama is probably the least dangerous to the long-term fate of our country.
P.S. The other prob with having to stomach Hildy in the limelight is that Bubba comes with her. That’s one of the real horrors of a Hildy presidency-—the fact that Bubba would be sticking his big face back into our lives on a 24/7 basis as well.
Until then, I think I'll drink heavily.
Okay, here is the challenge: the first person who can sign up on Hillary’s site as Vince Foster and get a confirmation to attend an event in New Hampshire will get a HILLARY! UNCENSORED DVD.
Event schedule: http://www.hillaryclinton.com/events/20070210/?sc=8
SIGN UP: http://www.hillaryclinton.com/join/?sc=2 *** if you want it to come to Vince Foster, put both of those names in the FIRST NAME box and whatever clever name in the LAST NAME box. Make sure to use the zipcode for the area to make them think you are in New Hampshire.
It will not be over. Hillary loves power too much, she will either keep her seat in New York and move to the left and become a muck racker (like Babs Boxer) or listen to me here, yes a Supreme Court nominee from an Obama administration. Think about it, she would love to sit on a life time appointment legislating from the bench as much as she could.
I agree: We've already HAD the clinton experience, and even some of the previous-kool-aid-sucking-libs have to admit that clintons are abhorent.
The best thing to come out of Herself's bulldozing drive for power might just be that it destroys the false-"legacy" that billyboy was planning on. All of these reminders and forced realizations may prevent even the lib writers of "history" to acknowledge the absolute clintonian corruption.
All of that being said, I still don't trust the bitch:
The failure to even get the nomination will be devastating to her and she'll have an absolute meltdown if and when that happens - mark my words. Now if she is somehow able to pull out the nomination and loses in November, she'll hang on to that senate seat for another chance in 2012. But if she doesn't win the nomination and the realization sets in that she won't have a chance at the brass ring again, look for her senate "career" to come to an end as soon as she can manage it.
Putting Maddy the Mad Bomber in that pic was a stroke of pure genius. Thought she was The Wicked Witch of NY’s mother, yikes.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Then the Hill lights up the Gilford, NH Meeting with her charm and energy!
