New Yorker of the Year: Hillary Clinton proved a woman of resolve and class [Barf Alert!]
nydailynews.com ^ | 12/31/08 | nydailynews.com

The most powerful woman in the world.

So Hillary Clinton will become with the dawn of a new White House. Madam Secretary of State. A strong hand in a velvet glove, extended to the globe on behalf of the most anticipated presidency in generations.

Short of Barack Obama, no American today­ has a greater opportunity to shape international history than does New York’s departing ­junior U.S. senator.

And, short of Barack Obama, no American played a greater role last year in influencing the choice of the 44th President of the United States. Clinton galvanized 18 million voters and made her ultimately successful rival much the better by testing him vigorously.

For carrying the banner of a history-making candidacy with a resolve and class worthy of this city — in victory and defeat — we today salute Hillary Clinton as the Daily News New Yorker of the Year for 2008.

Look out, Hilly. She’s comin’ to git ‘cha, LOL! .................... Would love to see that happen, but she does not have the backing of the all powerful MSM.(aka the DNC Ministry of Propaganda) I’m afraid America lost out, there was a gift there, but it wasn’t noticed by the give me crowd.

I’d never use the word “class” in conjunction with Hillary Clinton, I’d replace the “l” with an “r”.

Laura Bush? Now that’s class.

I'm curious.

Shouldn't this fawning piece of drivel be in the 'Opinion' section of the paper, rather than the 'Politics' section?

Or is it just another example of media bias masquerading as "news"?

I still don’t get it. Can anyone point to one, just one, major accomplishment by Hillary besides fooling enough people to vote for her. I mean if I read another fawning, drooling article about how wonderful, smart, accomplished this woman is I will puke. Just one accomplishment, that’s all I ask, surely someone can give me that so I can “move on.”

No one can lose nominations they should win, evade imaginary snipers, describe an economy that was crashing from the tech bubble burst in 2000 “ship shape” in 2008, or stand by and defend men who humiliate them like she can.

No—not a strong hand in a velvet glove—an Iron Fist! It will almost be fun to see how Hillary slowly rips Obama to pieces in the next few years. She will have her revenge.
