Live, on Oprah! Its Americas Sweethearts, Bill n Hill, Together Again! Posted by Steve Grammatico Oct 7th 2010
Chicago (AP) Appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton spoke publicly for the first time about the 2008 primary campaign, her political ambitions, and their personal relationship.
Representatives for the First Couple insisted the joint appearance had absolutely nothing to do with President Obamas sagging political fortunes and was just a total coincidence.
The show began with Bill and Hillary air-kissing and catching up since they were last together at daughter Chelseas wedding in July.
Winfrey began the interview by asking Mrs. Clinton to assess her run for the 2008 presidential nomination. Im not one to second-guess, Mrs. Clinton said, but I wish we had played the race card early in the game.
Winfrey: But . . . .
No, not me, said Mrs. Clinton. Bill. The moment Obama emerged, I should have insisted that our party have a national discussion on who was the more authentic black leaderan inexperienced senator with roots in Indonesia or my husband and mentor, the First Black President.
Winfrey: So, you didnt go for it because you assumed you had the African-American vote locked up?
Mrs. Clinton: Of course. Jesse Jackson had agreed to endorse me and become Secretary of Reparations in my Cabinet. You, Oprah, promised your support if I pushed Congress to make Kenya our 51 state.
Winfrey: Oh. I forgot about that. (more

You forgot the obligatory BARF alert.
No, not BARF ALERT. You must read the article. It’s hilarious.
Here’s an appetizer:
We cut a great TV spot dealing with Iraq. It showed Hillary ready to assume command on Day One. But she thought it made her look too hawkish and nixed it.
Winfrey: And they brought the clip. Lets watch.
Aired publicly for the first time, the ad opens with Senator Clinton in full field gear patrolling Fallujah with a joint American-Iraqi unit.
Barking at her Secret Service detail to keep up, Mrs. Clinton is shown sprinting from house to house, her modified M14 with a Leupold LR/T 10 x 40 mm carried lightly on her shoulder.
Pausing behind a wall after the patrol takes sniper fire, Mrs. Rodham Clinton speaks to the camera: Bush screwed up in Iraq. You trust me with your vote, Im gonna be hands-on and make it right. [shots] Gotta go. [spits her chaw] Third floor window, left! Jones, Mooreheadcover us! Rest of you, follow me! [more shots as Clinton and her unit scale the wall, firing their weapons]
[Announcer] Hillary Rodham Clinton: a fighter, not a divider. [end]”
Gorss-I am sick of hack politicians and commies for that matter well at least Hill
funfan, did you read the article? If not, I would encourage you to. It is the funniest thing I’ve read all day.
No I did not but will do so :)
It is satire. When I first read the intro. and following sentences I thought I had warped into an altered universe. Took a minute to regain my equilibrium.
HaHa I just read it and thought this can’t be true but how refreshing if it was since I could picture it as if it was the truth. I noticed the story was tagged humor so I knew
the jig was up. Did you notice to the right of the story
there was a Story of Jerry Brown or someone in his campaign calling Meg Whitman a whore? I think this one is true
Yes, the story involving Jerry Brown is true.
I did not notice the ‘humor’, but I realize it was satire after reading this:
“...an inexperienced senator with roots in Indonesia or my husband and mentor, the First Black President.
Now that is just plain funny.
...an inexperienced senator with roots in Indonesia or my husband and mentor, the First Black President.
This is one of the reasons why I thought the story was true because that line is true if not downright factual in my opinion
