Skip to comments.Robert Reich: [Hillary] Clinton lacks 'conviction about anything'
Posted on 12/04/2007 5:56:37 AM PST by jdm
(CNN) Bill Clinton's former Secretary of Labor issued a blistering criticism of the former president's wife on Monday, accusing her of "not telling the truth" on Social Security and taking marching orders from her top pollster.
Reich, who has not endorsed a candidate but has written glowingly of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in recent months, ripped Hillary Clinton for saying Sunday that Iowa voters will have a choice "between someone who talks the talk, and somebody who's walked the walk."
"I dont get it," Reich wrote on his blog. "If theres anyone in the race whose history shows unique courage and character, it's Barack Obama. HRCs campaign, by contrast, is singularly lacking in conviction about anything. Her pollster, Mark Penn, has advised her to take no bold positions and continuously seek the political center, which is exactly what shes been doing."
Reich, who calls Clinton "my old friend" in the blog post, has a long-standing relationship with the Clintons, going back to when Reich and the former President were classmates and Rhodes Scholars at Oxford in the late 1960s. He left the Clinton administration in 1997 and now teaches public policy at the University of California-Berkeley.

It’s a short blog.
Hillary needs convictions........and sentencing..........
You get a gold star for the day, sir...
and it’s only 8 AM!......
Avoid clichés like the plague.
He's just a not nice man, like his freind Obama; they do not play nice in the playground and now their hitting on me, a woman. They were not nice men then, and they are bad men now. Democrats have to vote for me, I'm entitled to it"
LOL. Funny stuff!
One socialist criticizing another socialist....what a RIOT!!
Robert Reich belittling someone.
Interesting; Hitlary has had a bad two weeks and it seems to be getting worse and frankly, though I despise the Clintons, it somewhat surprises me; I’d have thought the MSM would have given her a free pass.
Strange, very strange; I guess that one can only sweep so much under the rug before it starts to ooze out continuosly.
Lacks conviction but should be convicted.
if Ross Perot and Robert Reich were on a winning presidential ticket and both agreed on a specific policy,
they could not hi-five..............at best it would be the low 2 1/2
I had no idea they paid people to do something like this. Isn't "public policy" one of those made-up things like "social work?"
“Robert Reich belittling someone.”
Actually he be littler than everyone.
And also represents the Lollipop Guild.
A former Clinton acolyte who has the nerve to state that the Empress has no clothes. Coming from Reich, it’s a small wonder.....
You know, Sloth, everytime I hear Robert Reich speak, I envision Michael Dunn as Dr. Miguelito Loveless (The Wild Wild West), but I think I’ll try to remember him as you do. ;)
True. His seats were in front of mine at symphony a few years back. I could see the entire stage. He didn’t hum along with the orchestra either. It was a good year.
