Posted on 01/06/2008 8:50:54 PM PST by jimbo123
HAMPTON, N.H., Jan. 6 -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, slipping further behind her chief rival in the Democratic primary here, has taken direct control over her strategy and message as she scrambles to block the ascent of Sen. Barack Obama.
In an unscheduled conference call with senior aides on Sunday morning, Hillary Clinton took what her advisers described as an unprecedented level of control over the direction of the daily message -- issuing orders rather than soliciting advice. According to one participant in the call, Clinton did not explicitly relieve any advisers of responsibilities, but made it clear that she intended to reorient her campaign toward sharpening her differences with Obama on the trail.

(Sorry, had another brain cloud.)
Are any of these charges false ? Just asking .
No. They are all true.
But only a couple of them are about Obama.
Time for a little blue on blue.
About time.Now she can really flop.
THAT is Hillary's nature. She bosses the "little people" around, and NOBODY better cross her, or they'll end up in a park playing a fatal game of Russian Roulette.
Obama is scary ... he just might pull it off.
And, why in the world would these PC idiots still have ash-trays around, anyway? Sets a bad example for the children, don'tcha know...
Oh, and better not let any of those FJB's get within a hundred feet of the witch (if they know what's good for them, that is)... Except maybe Sid Vicious... They were made for each other...
I hope she’s really pretty effective at what she does, when she takes the helm.
What we need, is for Hillary to come back after Obama and take it into the convention.
How long has Hillary been planning to be POTUS? 65 years? It seems longer.
She has brilliantly assembled the A TEAM of political advisers.
Imported exotic domestic luxuries from far away Saudi Arabia.
Her regal team has been far better trained than ordinary teams.
Still, in the heat of the political battle, this is a job only for... Super Washington Woman; and that dear friends, is what happened to the boys in Vietnam. Don’t let history repeat itself.
If we put up another RINO, it’s all over.
They are merely preparing her for taking “charge” of her comeback.
I can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but, I think that whoever the GOP nominee is, he will have an easier chance of beating Hillary than beating Obama. But, I think either of them CAN be defeated.
Seig Heil! /sarc
Let’s count the dead bodies associated with the Clintons in their rise to the White House and during their eight years in office. Not including everyone on board flight 800, there are over over 100 dead bodies on the the Clinton path through the White House. No other Presidency has killed so many people without conducting a miliatary war! Both Clintons should have been imprisoned many lifetimes over for their crimes...what does it take?????
These are comments from KOS alone in regard to OBAMA, from the last 24 hours:
Happy Talk, Hope, and Fairy Dust Dont Win Elections
You Dont Bring Kumbaya To A Gunfight
Campaign of False HopesM
Watching the Democratic Party rip its own throat out is a simple pleasure, and we ALL knew it would eventually come to this.
Gee..kind of like some here talk about Rudy.
I so agree. This is a chance to kill two birds with one stone. Of course Hillary will never go away - she'll become the new Ted Kennedy. Knowing she will never be President she would need to face reality and choose to bite the bullet and become the bulldog of the Senate for life.
Maybe Obama would be harder to beat because no matter what you think of his politics, he is many times more likeable than Hillary. But he has staked positions that are McGovernish and so loses that advantage of likeability. And ironically it will be the racists within the Dem party that will not vote for him that could very well make the difference. Not to mention if Hillary is put out to pasture she will probably be pulling strings to sabatoge Obama to open up a 2012 run and/or to at least retain their power structure unbroken that an Obama or Edwards presidency would destroy. It would possibly be where in such a scenario in 2012 that Hillary wouldn't run but would have a manchurian candidate that they would be puppetmasters of.
How long have the Manchurians been planning? The Toon is far from toast; her race has just begun. She begins with overwhelming forces.
"If we put up another RINO, its all over."
It is the time for the stalwart.
“Obama is gonna get his ass ripped. He is a lightweight contender. The lightest of all the Dems”
Seems like people said that about Jimmah too...Jimmah Cahrter
