Skip to comments.Hillary hits Obama on transparency, style
Posted on 02/11/2008 6:34:36 PM PST by Bubba_Leroy
Senator Hillary Rodham (D-N.Y.) mocked Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) tonight for his high-flown rhetoric, suggesting she would fight important fights when he would back down.
Clinton, speaking on WJLA Channel 7 in Washington and Politico.com, also promised there would be no new scandals involving her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
The senator was asked a question from a Politico.com reader in Santa Monica, Calif., who was seeking assurance that "no new business or personal scandal involving Bill Clinton" could erupt if she were in the White House and give fodder to Republicans.
"You know, I can assure this reader that that is not going to happen," she said. "You know, none of us can predict the future, no matter who we are and what we are running for, but I am very confident that that will not happen."

oh that is just such a pathetic thing to say, hillary.
more hitlary doublespeak. i'm sure the masses will be impressed.
Sounds like Bubba’s not gonna be around for long if Hilly is elected.
Hilly needs a reality check. Then she needs to retire from politics and go home and bake cookies for her daughter. Maybe Chelsea will settle down and have a few children. Wouldn’t Hilly make a wonderful grandma?
Some top guys on our side are laughing very hard at this, wait and see Hillary Clinton, just wait and see.
Can she begin any sentence or phrase without the obligatory “you know”?
Sounds to me like she’s jealous!! After all, she learned all HER transparency from Bill . . . . . . . . and it shows - every time she cries before a primary or plants a question!!
You will be shocked about Bill Clinton sexual adventures from 2001-2008 when they come out at the right time, but may be you will not :)
Her first (and only) term should be fun to watch!
“She said the delegates she won in Michigan and Florida should count toward the nomination, even though the Democratic National Committee said the states would be punished for moving their contests so early.
Clinton was the only major Democratic candidate on the ballot in Michigan, and she was the only candidate to fly into Florida the night of the election.
I think that both Michigan and Florida should count, because these are two states we have to carry, she said. This is not about so much as the ins and outs of the Democratic National Committee as to whether the Democrats are going to win in the fall.
In Michigan, all of us had a chance to leave our names on the ballot I chose to do so, she continued. My opponents ran a very vigorous campaign to get people to vote uncontested. There was a campaign going on it was a campaign against me, and I still won a majority.
I think that the Democratic Party has to be looking very realistically about what it is were trying to achieve here. We need to win in November. I think that both in Michigan and in Florida, the Democratic Party should really give these people who came out and voted they werent involved in the rulemaking. Give them a chance. “
This is the equivalent of Algore asking the Supreme Court in 2000 to only re-count the votes in the 4 counties most likely to vote for him. These people are shameless.
