  • Hillary Clinton Embraces Her Husband's Legacy [the Co-Presidency]

    Washington Post ^ | 12/21/07 | post staff writers
    Both Clintons are making the case that theirs was a co-presidency -- an echo of Bill Clinton's controversial statement during the 1992 campaign that voters would get "two for the price of one" .... ...the Clintons regard any discussion of the Nineties to be good for them, evoking memories of a booming economy and a time when the United States enjoyed greater popularity around the world..... For all his talk about the 1990s, though, the former president does not go into great detail about the role his wife played in his administration, instead simply leaving the impression that she was...

  • Hillary Limited to One Term?

    12/12/2007 12:41:27 PM PST · by henkster · 12 replies · 157+ views
    United States Constitution, Amendment 22: No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. So what of Hillary's "experience" that enables her to be a qualified President? Why does she NOT want to release the relevant documents from Bill's administration that would confirm her "experience?" Maybe the reason isn't that the documents show...
  • Clinton calm in hostage crisis [BARF ALERT - It's started]

    When the hostages had been released and their alleged captor arrested, a regal-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton strolled out of her Washington home, the picture of calm in the face of crisis. The image, broadcast just as the network news began, conveyed the message a thousand town hall meetings and campaign commercials strive for — namely, that the Democratic presidential contender can face disorder in a most orderly manner. "I am very grateful that this difficult day has ended so well," she declared as she stood alone at the microphone. Little more than three hours later, just in time for the...
  • Will Character Be Destiny? (Is Hillary Inevitable?)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 23 November 2007 | KIMBERLEY STRASSEL
    <p>Until recently, the biggest thing going for Hillary is that she has appeared "inevitable." This is no accident. Mrs. Clinton may not be as naturally gifted as her husband, but she does have access to his playbook. One of Bill's more brilliant strategies when he ran in 1992 was to campaign as if he were already the nominee. It gave an otherwise little-known governor the legitimacy to sideline his opponents.</p>

    I've seen up close the two Clintons America knows. He's a big smile, hand locked on your arm and lots of charms. "Hey, come down and speak at my library. I'd like to talk some politics with you." And her? She tends to be, well, hard and brittle. I inherited her West Wing office. Shortly after the 2001 Inauguration, I made a little talk saying I appreciated having the office because it had the only full-length vanity mirror in the West Wing, which gave me a chance to improve my rumpled appearance. The senator from New York confronted me shortly...
  • Clinton Campaign Confirms Planting Town Hall Question, Says It Won't Happen Again

    SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s campaign admitted Friday that it planted a global warming question in Newton, Iowa, Tuesday during a town hall meeting to discuss clean energy. Clinton campaign spokesman Mo Elliethee admitted that the campaign had planted the question and said it would not happen again. "On this occasion a member of our staff did discuss a possible question about Senator Clinton's energy plan at a forum,” Elliethee said. “However, Senator Clinton did not know which questioners she was calling on during the event. This is not standard policy and will not be repeated...

    UPI ^ | August 26, 2007
    The Internet is helping so-called "Hillary Haters" prepare for battle should Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton become the Democratic presidential nominee. A vast army of the self-proclaimed "haters" is repackaging old news and rumors for use on the blog-loaded Internet, the Chicago Tribune reported. Among them is Richard Collins, a wealthy Texas philanthropist, businessman and political aficionado who openly aims to destroy the presidential ambitions of the New York senator. Collins, 60, is behind, a snide Web site with a cartoon called "The Hillary Show," a satire portraying Clinton as a mean and unforgiving talk show host, the Tribune reported....

    DC Chapter ^ | June 11, 2007 | BillF with photos from trooprally (Mr.)
    DC Chapter dusted off our old anti-Hillary signs, made some new ones, and FReeped the former Wicked Witch of the West Wing. This was at her Club 44 (she would be the 44th President) campaign event in Washington, DC on June 6, 2007 per this announcement. Over four years ago, former First Lady and junior Senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton embarked on a tour promoting her Living History book. The book was about the great achievements (Midnight Basketball) and failures (healthcare, Waco, Whitewater, Elian?) of the Clinton administration, together with The Bill and Hill Soap Opera (Monica et...

    Not long ago, a campaign had a couple of options for getting out word of a big endorsement: a press release to political reporters, or maybe a calculated leak to a big local paper. But Wednesday morning, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign broke the news of Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg's endorsement on a new website the campaign runs, The campaign later e-mailed reporters suggesting they check the site. HillaryHub isn't a typical campaign site. With a simple, three-column look, occasionally edgy headlines and links to a blend of videos, reports from newspapers and blogs and campaign memos, it's a...

    A new biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton alleges she masterminded efforts to cover up Bill Clinton's draft record during the 1992 campaign - and coolly executed a "20-year project" to place both spouses into the Oval Office regardless of their marital woes. "Her Way," a decidedly unauthorized biography written by longtime New York Times reporters Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr., also reveals that Clinton chose not to read a critical National Intelligence Estimate on Saddam Hussein's weapons programs days before casting her controversial 2002 vote authorizing the Iraq war. The book portrays Clinton as a politically savvy manipulator...

    Uh-oh. Don’t look now, but somebody who wants to be President forgot to take their medicine. It remains uncertain as to whether the failure to follow the prescription will be politically costly. But the Senator formerly known as Hillary Rodham Clinton seems to be caught in another little conflict, and this one could be a problem with, shall we say, “the faithful.” By “the faithful,” I mean the left-wing contingency within the Democratic Party that long ago abandoned any historic, western understanding of the relationship between the human person and the earth (an understanding that is so commonplace for most...

    According to the Associated Press, Hillary Clinton is proposing a $10 billion to provide voluntary pre-kindergarten. ""I want every 4-year-old regardless of parental income to have access to high quality pre-K because it not only enhances their academic preparation, they stay in school longer, they have fewer behavioral problems," she says. "There is a lot of evidence that this saves money over the long run and economists and others have validated what experts in early childhood education have told us for a long time." I think the "experts" Mrs. Clinton is alluding to must be her pals at the National...

    Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has dropped the use of her maiden name "Rodham" in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton identifies herself as "Hillary Clinton" in her campaign press releases and on her campaign website. The lone mention of her maiden name is in a campaign biography that says "Hillary's father, Hugh Rodham, was the son of a factory worker from Scranton." She continues to use "Hillary Rodham Clinton" in her New York-focused press releases and in the Senate. Clinton appeared surprised last week when asked why her presidential campaign had dropped her maiden name. Clinton laughed, shook...

    MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that if she is elected president, she would make her husband a roaming ambassador to the world, using his skills to repair the nation's tattered image abroad. "I can't think of a better cheerleader for America than Bill Clinton, can you?" the Democratic senator from New York asked a crowd jammed into a junior high school gymnasium. "He has said he would do anything I asked him to do. I would put him to work." Clinton spoke at a town hall-style meeting Saturday where she took questions from about 200 people....

    Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our first lady - a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation - is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit. 1) Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that...

      WHY HILLARY'S IOWA MISSTEP CAN SINK HERMISSUS CLINTON'S SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE PROBLEM by Mia T, 1.29.07 ell, it didn't take long for missus clinton, off-leach—(sort of)—to step in it. On reflection, it will become clear that what is being spun as a little Iowa faux pas is in fact a huge blunder with national implications and the potential to sink the clinton candidacy. All the more surprising when one realizes that the visit to Iowa by this Thatcher pretender,1 this wannabe-commander-in-chief, 2 was more a micromanaged toe-dip than a bold foray. Watch the blunder as it unfolds. Notice...

    Fox News Channel says it has obtained controversial unseen footage from ABC's miniseries "The Path to 9/11" and will air the video during "Hannity's America" on Sunday night. Before "Path" aired in September, Democrats and former aides to President Clinton demanded changes to the miniseries, which revolves around the events leading up to the September 11 attacks, saying that it contained fictionalized scenes and unfairly blamed the Clinton administration for failing to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. Ahead of "Path's" broadcast, ABC was said to have made minor edits, including altering a scene in which an actor playing Sandy...
