Hillary Actively Working, Seeking Staff For 2008 Presidential Run Now / All Denials Are Lies
USNWR ^

Posted on 03/02/2005 1:03:35 AM PST by MindBender26

The 2008 Five Five Democrats have begun informal staff interviews for 2008 presidential runs, according to a few who've been interviewed. So far, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is dubbed "the most aggressive" in seeking out aides, followed by Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack . The others are Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards , and 2004 candidate Sen. John Kerry .

And without conservative voters, the GOP doesn't win.

I would hate a Hillary presidency but I will survive it. We survived her husband for 8 years.

I will not vote for any candidate who is anti gun or pro abortion no matter what label they wear and no matter how much worse the Democrat is. I will not choose the lesser of two evils again.

BTW, did you happen to notice that this is a CONSERVATIVE site?

"Of course she's going to run for re-election. She needs the available limelight for the 2 years up to 2008. Why should she give the voters of NY any consideration?"

This is correct. Without that NY Senate seat, Madame Hillary loses a huge amount of clout. Look what the same action did for/to Bob Dole.

This is it folks. Who here has a clean record as a passable democrat? Now is the time. Sign up for the campaign. Sign up early. Be her most loyal staffer. Work your way up. Refuse all temptation o be disloyal. Until, that is, the final month of the campaign when you are her chief confidante and can drop a bomb on her.

I can't do it. Too public of a record as a conservative. I also have family, kids. If you are a single guy or gal, with no public record as a conservative, drop everything you are doing and commit the next three years of your life to this.

Your nation will thank you, and you will forever be a living God at Free Republic.

The Witch was too happy when Kerry tanked. She's so predictable.

Expect the Witch to move to the right of President Bush in several issues and ban the Looney Left from her parade.

The media can't wait for the upcoming "rebirth" of the Clintonista mafia.

He could have given the GOP a run for their money until he voted against Condi Rice and Alberto Gonzalez... Now he is a loser just like the rest of them, I thought he was different... I WAS WRONG.

I don't think he had much of a choice--he just won reelection overwhelmingly so he's not up for six very long years, and more importantly, if he's to have any chance at nabbing the nomination, he couldn't dare displease the party faithful by voting the other way.

Well look at the phony faces she makes. Not for nothing, but the people I`ve met in my life who make those kinds of faces are the ones who are trying to hide something from you. Those types of people who speak loud or who over animate themselves are actually trying to distract you from finding out what they are all about. Hitler did the same thing.

Hitlery knows if you realized the truth about her, you would not support her, she doesn`t want you to see who she truly is. This is why she avoids all interviews unless it is with someone like a suckass Katie Couric.

Hitler use to practice his facial expressions in front of a mirror, he use to speak to people and tell them how wooonderful everything is, how "He was going to restore the pride in Germany" then when he got the power the monster was unleashed. This is how sociopaths work..Hitlery is a sociopath on the level of Hitler in my opinion. Hitlery says the SAME things as Hitler did. "The United States is not being respected! "VE MUST HAVE DER PRIDE OF DER WORLD!" meanwhile he totally destroyed Germany. If you don`t believe me, next time Hitlery opens her mouth, compare her quote to that of Hitler. 99 times out 100 you will find Hitler said the same exact thing.

People get ticked off when I say that, even freepers, but remember, if Hitler never got to power the monster wouldn`t have been seen. Just because Hitlery is still a Senator doesn`t reduce the potential damage that this incredibly sick woman will do if given half the chance.

I`ve had some freepers tell me "You are doing just what the radical democrats are doing by calling Bush Hitler" and I tell them, yes but Bush never went out of his way to utterly and systematically destroy the lives of the people in this country who stand in his way or the people who NEVER stood in his way. Hitlery does that without blinking an eye all the time because she is a bonafide psychotic. She IS...a psychotic woman who should be nowhere near ANYTHING having to do with leadership, much less be in a political office of all things! She literally put the lives of millions of New Yorkers at risk, she gambled their lives like they were cockroaches by having her husband pardon the FALN terrorists solely so she could buy votes! My God, if that isn`t sick, I don`t know what is! And being that she is a BLATANT anti-semite only proves my point even further that she is no different from Hitler. SHE IS NO DIFFERENT! SHE IS HITLERY AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY CONSIDERING HER TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY! THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY ON THE PLANET!!

Just one more victim you never hear about....

didn't Rush also predict she would lose the NY senate race?

Worse than that I believe Rush said that Hillary wouldn't run for the Senate in NY.

He also said that Dean isn't Hillary's choice for DNC chair.

I was thinking the same thing. And they can't control their emotions. Every step she takes to the right will feel like betrayl to them. Remember, this is a crowd who actually feels a need for a government that cares for them. (as if such a thing were at all possible)

While I have no proof, I have not felt this confident before. As sKerry, Rather and others are caught red-handed by bloggers and the internet, I feel that their skills are just being honed for a more important fight.

Further, I think that Condi will outshine Hillary to such a degree that it will be pathetic.

I used to worry about the depth of the Repub bench of candidates before, but it doesn't bother me now.

I will be willing to hold that Franklin until election night 2007.

Your post is stupendous. Thanks for the newspaper clipping, and for all of your comments. I agree with everything that you say. This woman is a reptile. Strong language and explosive sentiments are quite appropriate, and the comparison to Hitler isn't excessive. You've got it exactly right. "Monster" comes to mind every time I see her! Heaven help America, if she manages to slither into the presidency!

How do you like "Commandress in Chief?"

She will not win. The Hildabeast is not a good person-to-person campaigner. In addition, her involvement in all those Clinton scandals will surface throughout the presidential campaign. If she gets the nomination, Hitlery will be passed in the home stretch by a good GOP candidate who will take the lead in honest polls in late October, 2008. I can't believe I'm already offering predictions for the 2008 election.

The problem I have with Hillary running for anything is that you can never get her to answer any questions. Everything she says is predetermined and controlled by her handlers. The MSM will never ask her any sticky questions and she will never be brought to task. She is nothing but a snake in a pants suit.

Wow! I understand and share your concerns that Hillary Clinton either (i) hides her far-left principles, (ii) HAS no real principles other than her own personal ambition, or (iii) all of the above. I think both her politics and her character make her a grave danger if elected to higher office. (I would almost rather see a sincere, open leftist elected to office than her. No one that I know of accused Paul Wellstone, for example, of insincerity - people disagreed with his politics, but respected him.) I find the mere concept of her as president to be nauseating beyond belief. I am worried also that many Republicans are going too easy on her. On top of everything else, I don't know how she can be touted as such a big feminist given her husband's shenanigans and her own riding her husband's coattails into a career. (For some reason, I just find it particularly galling when a spouse, be it Yoko Ono, Tom Arnold, or someone else, gets a career out of who they slept with.) If I cataloged all of Hillary's moments of mendacity it would fill a book, and already such events have filled several!

But I gotta be honest about the Hitlery comment. (Lots of people here use it, and I sort of just breeze past it. But since you raised the "controversy" over it I will take the opportunity to politely comment on it.) I would, all things considered, rather not see it than see it here. You will get no argument from me on what a danger it would be for her to become President. And I do think that Bush and Hillary are different cases when it comes to the Hitler analogy - they have totally different politics, character, and "modes of operation." Apples and oranges, to say the least!!!

I do think that we have to be careful not to fall into the DU trap of overstating our case and going negative (again, to say the least). And it may provide an opening to Hillary supporters to change the subject from her to her detractors. (Maybe I am guilty of falling into that trap in this post. But I don't have much to add about Hillary Clinton, since I agree with the predominant views about her expressed here.) Maybe I am raising politics over honesty in the minds of some; I just don't know how much it helps to use the term.

I get concerned about the Hitler analogy (in any context) for another reason. This country fought Hitler with all its might; nothing was held back. If we could have "taken him out" at any time after Pearl Harbor we would have. I don't want this post to be pulled, but my fear is that with so many leftists out there (a small percentage of the population, but very rabid) seething with hatred for Bush and thinking him a Hitlerian monster, it would only take one to act on it. I sometimes find myself analogizing some of the dehumanizing logic that seems to be part of the pro-choice movement to the Nazi death camps. But I am of two minds about this: if someone REALLY thinks something is akin to Nazi Germany, then they might also think any violence against it is justified, and we have a breakdown of society as more and more people make their own decisions. If, on the other hand, we use "Hitler" as a purely rhetorical device, then the memory of that monster loses some of its meaning. Maybe I am just taking it all WAY TOO SERIOUSLY - politics is tough and people can't be flinching from mere insults. I just want to make sure that we are not just 100 times better than the left, but even more so, if that's possible.

Again, I respond to you with all respectful intentions, and you have borne the brunt of something I have wanted to say for a while generally. I might get flamed; I might be accused of playing into the left's hands; I might get called a troll. I might be full of sh*t! But I'm just letting some thoughts that have bouncing around out of my head.

I do agree, though, as strongly as I can, that Hillary Clinton is a severe danger to the US. We could survive a Hillary Clinton presidency; we could survive a lot of horrible things. But why should we? We need to work hard and make sure we have a better candidate and win so that she will never become President. I also feel like we have burdens in this struggle: the MSM, a sometimes feckless Republican leadership and the possibility of a rift in the Republican party or somehow otherwise snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. But we do have right, virtue and love of country on our side!

Yes, this is a conservative site. And I am a conservative...maybe not as conservative as you, but conservative. I am what you like to tag a RINO because I am not hardline conservative. My speculation is that without your much disliked "RINO" votes, our Republican candidate will not be elected.

My next question is why do you have a monopoly on the Republican party? Does it have YOUR name on it?

You said that you were a RINO, not me.

RINO is Republican in name only -- meaning that you are really a Democrat in your beliefs.

I would suspect that you really are a Republican in your values, but somehow, I doubt that the conservative label fits. I could be wrong because I don't know you at all other than your posts on this thread.

My party? No, not mine. Not yet. You'll know when it is.

----and who has alot of gay friends----

You have fallen into the trap of the media perpetuated myth of conservatives vs gays.

TRUE conservatives are not anti-gay & never have been. Real conservs are 100% in favor of everyone having the same rights. Don't confuse privileges with rights.

I have gay friends and relatives. Big da*m deal.

If you examine the issue very closely you will see that certain wedge type issues have been seized by the DemocRats and twisted.

For example, I am 100% against gay marriage. That is not a human right. Marriage is an institution for the opposite sexes. If two gays want to enter into some kind of self determined legal contract for property inheritance or such, that's fine. But does my opposition to gay "marriage" make me anti-gay? No connection. I think SS needs reforming, that doesn't mean I hate seniors. Duh. DemocRats have been very successful in linking certain issues to make conservative appear that we have some vendetta against homosexuals.

I do not like having someone shove offensive public behavior in my face. That is not a right of anyone. We are very tolerant of others that show a little discretion and consideration for us. How can I be anti-gay because I don't want special privileges extended to a vested interest group?

Remember the crap where the leftist scum tried to paint Dick Cheney as a gay basher because he is against same sex marriage (which is an oxymoron BTW)? They said he hated gays & by extension his daughter because of it. Absolute crappolla!

I could go on and on, it just inflames me to be accused of being anti-gay because I don't swallow every bit of blather from the gay pandering left, or the militant gay lobby.

And I'll bet you big bucks that the leftists who so obviously pander to the gay lobby sit back in private amounst themselves and and laugh themselves silly making queer jokes. In life, when someone panders to you for your vote, you can be sure they have no respect for you.

Whew, now I feel better.

I believe in the right to bear arms.

I do not believe the government should have control over your life.

ChildOfThe60s, my conversation with Badray is whether or not I am the dreaded RINO, because I believe in a woman's choice in the first trimester. It seems my stance on this issue makes me a "Republican in Name Only" by many freepers (extreme IMO) I've come across.

btw, I'm a child of the 60s, a acid-dropping, pot smoking, barefoot hippy turned right wing, Methodist, PTA mom. Regarding your tag, I still for the life of me can't remember how I got stuck in the woods sans clothes one morning during a 3-day concert in 1971. (quaalude time)

----whether or not I am the dreaded RINO, because I believe in a woman's choice in the first trimester----

Oh, I did pick upon that. It's just that it gripes me to no end that any conservative should feel the need to state he has gay friends. It's like "I have Jewish friends" or "I have black friends".

I told my [gay] brother when he voted for BC, that conservatives will stand up for the constitutional rights of *everyone*, but will not pander to the gay lobby. Whereas BC would promise them everything and screw them whenever it suited his needs - which he did, and the DemocRats always do.

I have moral and practical reservations RE 1st trimester abortions; however, I also realize one cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube. I don't agree that your thoughts on it "disqualify" you from conservative status.

I do take issue with calling it a woman's right to choose. She may carry & bear the child, but it is not a possession owned by her. Nor is it the immaculate conception (hint, hint :)

PBA is infanticide, period.

This is not the thread for a long discussion on abortion. later on that.

I had a [very] good time, too. But for me it was the recreational side of my life, never a statement of political philosophy. I have always been a conservative, even when seriously stoned. I never seemed to be able to get on the Free Love bus, though....it was always gone when I got to the bus station ;-)

that's very cute...couldn't get on the Free Love bus because it always left the station. I'm smiling.

Yeah, me, too. Couldn't escape the conservative side: it has been so engrained in me (dad ran for congress). and my belief in God is what kept me from losing it completely.

Thanks for a good discussion.

Unfortunately, with total control of the Media, she can.

She has a good chance to win, in my opinion.

from Hillary's Secret War, by Poe, p. 65:

"'Collin's exclusive interview with Tripp appeared in the December/January 2001 issue of George...

"After meeting Mrs. Clinton for the first time, I said to a couple of people close to the president, 'She's truly remarkable,' and the response was, 'Eight years for him, eight years for her. That's the plan.' "'

GOP selection will be important. Also important will be: the US must get the Iraqi army in place to handle Iraqi security by 11/2008 or, in my opinion, Hillary will win. The US military can still be there, protecting the border, acting as an occasional backup.

But if US troops are doing daily patrols in Baghdad in 11/2008, its Hillary in the White House, 1/2009.

A second issue that I am starting to see as central, is the Mexican border/illegal immigration/legal immigration issue. I am starting to believe that this is an issue that may split the Republican party to its core and hurt unity. Personally, that lack of unity is my biggest fear. For this reason, I hope we can work through the issue to find some kind of party consensus by 11/2008.

With total control over the Media, it will be easier than you think.

Hopefully. According to Hillary's Secret War, the Clinton Conspiracy to Muzzle Internet Journalists, the bloggers never quite got there with Ron Brown and Vince Foster. He implies that Monica-gate was actually covered by the Media as a distraction to cover Ron Brown's murder.

I'm with you. the idea of Hillary being President is not "fun" to me. It has the cold chill of death feeling to it.
