THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE [YOU KNOW] 'UPDATED'
Using internal polling, the clinton 'infrastructure' determined that its cozy-clintonoid-interviews-of-the-Colmes/King-kind scheme is no longer working. The scheme, which successfully shepherded and shielded the vacuous, inept, corrupt clintons for nine years, is now, post-9/11, yielding diminishing returns--and worse--increasing ridicule.
Hence, we had the clinton 'infrastructure' interviewer recalculation last week that specified more interviewer gravitas...and less lapdog...but not more doggedness...that is to say...that specified Jeff Greenberg.
A miscalculation, as it turned out. Greenberg made up in contempt what he lacked in inexorability. (Although he conducted the entire interview circumambulating on eggshells, Greenberg did eventually ask the ugly questions.)
Greenberg's circuitous path to clinton depravity and failure necessitates a nonlinear analysis of the data; we will use a nonlinear least squares curve fitter. Proportional hazards political survival regression analysis will generate a political survival curve for hillary clinton, which will show her viability (so to speak) over time.
Political survival time is defined as the length of the interval between the initial political trial balloon and political moribundity. Political moribundity is defined as two consecutive political failures--(one in the case of 9/11), or three not-necessarily-consecutive boo-filled public appearances, or one instance of a serious proposal generating laughter.
ASIDE: Since by any of these standards, hillary clinton is already flatlined, the more interesting question for this analysis would be: "What the hell is this moribund loser doing in the political arena, anyway?"
Survival is influenced by one or more factors, called "predictors" or "covariates", which may be categorical (such as the quality of 'infrastructure') or continuous (such as intellect or eloquence or character).
GREENFIELD: Tonight, a conversation with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on the nation and the world after September 11, on GREENFIELD AT LARGE.
THE COMPLETE ANNOTATED INTERVIEW
And she inserts a lot of "ahs". That's her generations' equivalent of "like." Ever sit on a bus and listen to teens and 20's conversations? It's almost as bad as listening to Her Heinous.
It doesn't take a W to say "Uh" and "You know". (I am waiting for another of your QWERTY delights.) :o)
Just twisting your tail a bit, in a gentle way. You're very creative, and I enjoy your posts. But they (or their links) do tend to run on.
You might want to consider (art imitates life!) that there is a reason her posts on HIll and BIll,
RUN ON and ON and ON and ON.
You know...we won. Musta worked.
You're breaking new and (you know) very exciting ground here, Mia. Now there will be text books written using your finely-honed analytical techniques.
Brilliant stuff here.

You make an excellent point. I must remember that one. ;)
I would hasten to add that in the case of the clintons, the converse, (life imitates art), also applies...
Note that in the interest of brevity, I am adding the following warning to the transcript link:
THE COMPLETE ANNOTATED INTERVIEW (NB: a very long, you know, download because of the, you know, clinton criminal, you know, redundancy.)
SHOULD BE: life imitates art
