Greetings from the Occupied Capital of America!
I would have thought Hillary with cojones a hard sell, but as the congressman once said, "[w]hen it comes down to voting with the people or the special interests, I go with the special interests. They remember."This means that the great unwashed will forget that she was the Trojan Liberal 12 years ago. The True Believers know otherwise, but will wisely keep their mouths shut. And those of us who know better will be singing The Who's "Won't get fooled again" to no avail.I am interested in seeing if enterprising conservatives will try to drive Comrade Clinton out of the closet in Iowa and NH. Right now, the Dems are crowding the "center" and only Kucinich and Feingold as the real (honest) lefties in the putative field. Would that I could get a few thousand fellow travelers in NH to cross the line and vote for a true lefty; that might force her over to the left early. Whaddaya think?
I liked this comment from Terry McAuliffe: "You don’t walk into a knife fight without adequate gloves"Huh? Adequate gloves in a knife fight? How about a gun or knife, dodo? Oh, I forgot--Dems are against guns, so don't bring one of those. Lets bring gloves instead and jawbone the other guy into playing fair. Jeez, the Dems are such pacifist weenies that they can't even use a macho cliche correctly. Worse yet, is this indicative of their foreign policy? I can hear them laughing in Tehran, Damascus, Moscow, Paris, Pyongyang, . . .
never underestimate the need to overcompensate... poppy the wimp or dubya the prince being the best examples of destructive personalities when pointed at and made fun of...that and before she was a "trojan liberal"(?) she was a goldwater accolyte... she has acumen and an undercurrent of ruthlessness, which should go well with continuing american imperialism...i shudder and want gore more than ever...p.s., admit it: gore could have done a whole lot better in the war on terrorism than the current sociopath...
He would have had the good sense not to go into Iraq, if that is what you mean. Other than that, I do not think Gore would have gone into Afganny, and likely would not have exacted concessions from Libya.Fact that Hill had Goldwater genes at one time further proves my unstated hypothesis that she will make Kerry look like the very epitome of consistent thought. At least Kerry flipflopped mostly on the center-left. Hill is flipping between left and right.And I hadda laugh - now tell me I am wrong about this, but it occurs to me that last year, the Dems were lambasting Bush for NOT SENDING ENOUGH TROOPS! Now that he has proposed the Surge, the Dems are lining up against it. What Hubris; what hypocrisy.(except on the part of those principled few that opposed or supported our presence all along--either or both may be wrong, but at least they were principled about it, and I respect that).
the argument that dems argued for more back when, and are now opting out for mere political points is faux...more troops WHEN IT WOULD HAVE HELPED is the point... had we gone with shinscheky(sp?)'s suggestion of at least 250K troops to secure iraq IS THE POINT...now it's too late... and certainly not with the last 20K available, i.e., short of a draft...unless you have special military logistical knowledge that contraindicates.... ??
