HILLARY "I'm in" CLINTON'S 'CONVERSATION' WITH SELF
... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.
These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.
Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary--(an image, incidentally, that is only enhanced today by her clumsy, termagant parody of Thatcher), forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."
It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."
December 7, 1941+64
Hillary Clinton's revisionist tome notwithstanding, 'living history' begets a certain symmetry. It is in that light that I make this not-so-modest proposal on this day, exactly 64 years after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The context of our concern today--regardless of political affiliation--is Iraq and The War on Terror, but the larger fear is that our democracy may not survive.
We have the requisite machines, power and know-how to defeat the enemy in Iraq and elsewhere, but do we have the will?
In particular, do we have the will to identify and defeat the enemy in our midst?
Answerable to no one, heir apparent in her own mind, self-serving in the extreme, Hillary Clinton incarnates this insidious new threat to our survival.
What we decide to do about Missus Clinton will tell us much about what awaits us in these perilous new times.

It will be interesting to see...
Well, none of this is anything we didn't already know. I doubt she'll get the nomination, though. She lacks charm and looks, plus has a lot of baggage. In some ways, she might be an easier person to beat than Barack Obama or John Edwards.
Hillary Clinton is the first first lady to run for president; AND,
the first first lady to testify before a grand jury when she was subpeonaed by the Whitewater grand jury.
So the media's Chauncey Gardener makes her way to the center stage ... virtually, not really. She cannot handle reality as proven by Lazio years ago. Sadly, democrats could care less if she is reality or virtual, so long as they depose a Pubby.
I can see what will happen with these chats. After a few of them, suddenly Bill will pop in, and all the idiots who wish he was President for Life will think it's so unbelievably cool that they are there together. We'll have the Bill & Hill show through November '08. Maybe everyone will be sick of them by then.
... and the first first lady to have been, at a minimum, an accessory after the fact in a rape.
I thought we already had enough of the Hill-Billy administration.
But can she do the job? An increasing percentage of Ds think not.
How 'bout those Rose Law Firm records?
The vast majority of democrat voters will think as the media directs them to think, believe as the media instructs them to believe, and fall in line as the eventual dictators threaten them to do.
True. But I think the media will dump her in a NY minute if they think she's a loser. They want to win.
There are many Ds in positions of power who deeply resent, even detest the clintons, and especially the wife.
