(Hillary) Clinton calls for political compromise (BARF!)
The Hill ^ | July 26, 2014 | Julian Hattem

Some lawmakers in Congress are too focused on partisan ideals and should work harder to put aside their differences and compromise, Hillary Clinton said on Saturday.

Speaking at a conference for financial advisors in Boston, the possible 2016 Democratic front-runner reportedly lambasted politicians who come into office with unflinching objectives.

“American voters should make it very clear that we will not vote for someone who says proudly he or she will go to Washington and never compromise,” she said, according to the Boston Globe.

“We’re not even coming together to solve the emergency problems,” she added, referring to the crisis of unaccompanied minors at the U.S. border.

Clinton was not originally scheduled to speak at the Ameriprise Financial conference on Saturday. Instead, she took the place of former President George W. Bush, who ducked out of the invitation to recover from knee surgery in Chicago.

“The last time a Clinton replaced a Bush, things turned out pretty well,” the former secretary of State joked.

Clinton has been making the rounds of public speeches and press interviews in recent weeks, on the heels of her new memoir, "Hard Choices." The increased exposure has been interpreted as a way to keep her name in the news ahead of a possible presidential bid, though the high speaking fees she has demanded since leaving office have become a sore spot for some critics.

At the same time, Clinton has made an effort to increase her bona fines with average voters by appearing at major stores such as Costco to sign copies of her book.

After the conference on Saturday, Clinton was scheduled to sign books at a suburban Sam’s Club.

As always, when a ‘Rat says this what they mean is — Republicans must surrender.

Liberals love compromise.

Every Republican compromise is a win for liberals and a loss of freedom for the rest of us.

Liberals love compromise.

By definition, compromise is a loss for Conservatism.

Compromise for all socialists: All of your programs are discontinued. All of your subsidies are cancelled. You have three days to leave the country

There. Every American is happy.

OK Hillary, you go first.

Have your Democrats repeal Obamacare. Then we'll talk.

If Cankles is the real deal, then she should fly over to Israel and broker a peace to show that she is the great healer. After all they must love her in the east after her fantastic work as secretary of state.

ok lets roll the compromising to the right, and start reversing direction away from what liberals like, and see how happy they are to compromise and see issues incrementally move in favor of what conservatives want.

hypocrites.
