Hillary Clinton stumps for Kerry in South Florida
By MIKE SCHNEIDER

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton toured through South Florida Saturday, urging residents to vote early for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry at rallies for two groups in which she and her husband, former President Clinton, enjoy immense popularity - women and African Americans.
At a Women's Early Vote Unity Rally in West Palm Beach, she criticized efforts to reject voter registration applications because some people had forgotten to check a box indicating they are U.S. citizens.
She challenged President Bush and Gov. Jeb Bush to make sure the Nov. 2 election is fair and that every vote counts in Florida, the state that decided the 2000 presidential election by 537 votes.
"If we were living in another country and we had the president of the country and his brother controlling one of the biggest provinces or states, we would ... have some doubts about whether, given their track record, they really believe in democracy," Clinton told about 300 cheering supporters in a theater in downtown West Palm Beach.
In the 2000 election, large numbers of votes in black precincts in Duval County were discarded because of ballot problems and many Jews in Palm Beach County inadvertently voted for Pat Buchanan because of a poorly designed ballot.
Later Saturday, at a rally before a largely African American crowd of several hundred people outside a community center in Fort Lauderdale, the senator challenged President Bush's contention that Kerry would be ineffective in fighting terrorism. She later addressed a rally in Miami.
At both rallies, she noted that New York, the state she represents and the site of the World Trade Center attacks, is expected to cast its electoral votes for Kerry.
"We went through the horror, the tragedy, the loss ... Isn't it interesting that the people of New York, the ones who were attacked, have already figured out they can trust John Kerry?" Clinton said.
The biggest applause at both events came when she told the crowds that her husband, President Clinton, was recovering fast enough from heart surgery to campaign for Kerry in Florida early next week.
"The doctor said, 'Don't overdo it!'" Clinton said. "'But we'll let you go.'"
She usually screams these idiotic gems. Did she ever complain about the co-presidents (one barely elected - the other not at all) really believing in democracy?
Wow, 300 eh? Mebbe 180?
"... told about 300 cheering supporters ..."
Lady Mao is PACKING THEM IN.
Notice the stress on voting early? I think they know that the "October Surprise" is going to be a good one and want all the votes they can get before they have a chance to change their mind. Why else would the emphasis be on vot early?
The wide-load sure has the right kind of legs for the job!
Damn, I thought the headline said, Hillary Clinton stomps on Kerry in South Florida...
Shoot! Oh, well. Hillary is just so popular across this nation, I think that we should just surrender everything to her..
And another thing, I think Hillary is experiencing power envy when it concerns the Bush Family. It's alright darling, we understand, but truth is you are about as powerful as you ever will be.
bet most of the 180 was her own entourage.
So Bush draws 30,000 and Hillary draws 300. That should be enough for the MSM to overplay her visit by a tenfold factor.
"Hi everyone of you 300 democrats. I'm here to promote RAT values, and I know , you know, that the RAT agenda is the best for America.
If you can stomach John Kerry, vote for him, but if you really want change, wait four years and I'll be back!"
What is it about following directions that is so difficult for these anal orifices? Oh, that's right - if they're voting Democrat, the rules don't apply to them.
Oh boy is an editor at this paper gonna be read the riot act by one of The Ankle's minions.
This is only October 23. I thought witches didn't come out until Halloween.
They don't need to make sure that every vote counts -- only the legal ones.
Her broom is being readied... perhaps on Halloween, Her Heinous and Beelzeflubba will fly off to pumpkin..
Practice for 2008.
Ole Stumpy Clinton!!!
glad she's out there... she and Cher can really draw a crowd huh? HAHAHAHAHAA
Didn'tcha KNOW that? (g!)
