Please don't tell me that Hillary is really running in 2008. I thought it was a joke at first, but now I'm starting to hear about it more and more. I swear if she is the frontrunner for us democrats I'll make a new party called the dempublicans and go for John McCain.

IS THIS WHAT OUR WORLD IS COMING TO?! Look, I have nothing against females running for office, but Hillary...NO WAY. She doesn't have what it takes. She burst into tears when the people in New York booed her.....what's she gonna do about all the attack ads by the republicans? Counter them by crying some more? I mean what the HELL is happening to the democratic party.

It's funny, because if you really look at the history of the republican party when they first started, they had more modern democratic/liberal values than the democrats do now. The republicans were the ones for abolishing slavery, etc. They came from a group called the Wigs or something like that, I forget. Whatever. I'm losing faith in us.

How can you be surprised at this? It's been discussed for the past couple of years. Had Kerry won, she probably wouldn't have been considered, but since there will be no incumbent to run against in 08, she would be a front runner. The Clintons have been at the top of the power ladder for the Dems for a long time.

My fear is that she has shown she will do anything, and step on anyone in her efforts to gain political power. Neal Boortz calls her "Evil". That may be an exageration, but in my opinion, not much of one.

Should she get nominated, the best thing the Reps could do to counter it would be to put Condi Rice up against her. Imagine how that would divide the Democratic voter base!

Looks like the Democrats are failing to heed the advise of their own strategists, and are making no attempt to adopt a more moderate centrist position (which is good for the GOP).

I hope that the Hillary (The Hildabeast) is the Democratic party candidate for president in 2008 and Rudy Giuliani is the Republican candidate. Rudy will beat her like a conga drum.

Michael (The Slob) Moore is already working hard on Farenheit 911 1/2 and we all know what a great job he did (for the GOP). Can the rest of the smarmy Hollywood leftist crowd be far behind? (Please tell me they are!)

She is not a likeable person. She is a self-centered arrogant bitch. Most Americans don't like self-centered arrogant bitches.

Bill got elected because he comes across as a somewhat jovial, likeable guy, despite what we know about him now.

I don't hate her. I just don't like her or her policies.

I didn't hate her husband. I just thought he was bad for the country.

My theory is that they hate her because she's an
intelligent, self-confident WOMAN. When I posted this
earlier somebody said not true; they'd vote for
Condi Rice. If you believe that I've got some
ocean front property I'll sell you in Arizona.
My theory is that most men don't really like women; they
see them as sexual conquests. Ladies, notice how
most men don't really listen to what you have to say.
I, on the other hand, love women AS WOMEN!
This is why at 56, slightly overweight, balding,
I'm still considered a stud muffin.

<font color="blue">I would prefer to think of myself as a sexual conquest for the women, not the other way around although it has not worked out that way in years, not being a stud muffin like you. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I would however, vote for many women for President. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, (Condi needs a few more years of politics, IMO), in War I'd make a case for Ann Coulter (more so if she was not so weak on social issues) /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif (I thought Margret Thatcher was one of the three strongest leaders UK ever had), I loved Gandi, the woman not the movie. I may be completely off base here but I think a woman would have more difficulty within the female electorate than with the men! If fact, I would be willing to let the men voters sit out the next election. I think the women have more political savy than most of us men and I bet most of them had little trouble figuring out how to use the voting machines.

<font color="blue">I think most women have better and more solid values than us men, on average. I don't think Hillary is one of them. I met her three times in social and work situations in Arkansas (Guy Proctor's house in 1979, same party more people in 1982) only five if us there in '79, (No, Qtec, I don't have taped recordings) and at the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission in 1987. She was not personable, was smarter than me but about half as intellegent as Bill (my take only). I had never met her before that first birthday party for Guy in '79 but thought she looked like a person who had stayed too long at Woodstock. Bill entranced even me with his knowledge and charasima. Hillary, in a 20 minute personal conversation insulted every view I held, insulted my home state, it's backward women, our Church affiliation (at the time) and generally made me and my wife feel we were the strangers in my friend's home. In '87 I met her in conference with 12 other people, she had transformed into a personable, polite and politically savy lawyer with much better hair who lauded praise on my state, had dropped her last name, became anti-Union and promised to help end a potential bitter strike that was threatening to move a large employer out of state. She was to have Bill interced for us in a matter and avoid losing this employer, the highest wages paid in the state. She went back to Little Rock and four days later , out of desparation we called Bill, she had not even mentioned our request to him. The business soon moved to Mexico. No, I won't Swift Boat this in 2008 even though I do have people who can and will back me up on this, not just my ex-wife either. So, I just don't trust her.

Something of interest to you Clintonites. I didn't see Bill Clinton from about May of 1982 until May of 1989. I had only talked to him for about 30 minutes on two occasions (while he was A. General &amp; as our Governor) and driving by in a parade in Bradford, Arkansas, he waved and called me by name having not laid eyes on me in over 7 years! Now, weather you are Democrat or Republican or Communist, you have to admit a man who can remember the name of one of thousands upon thousands of people he has met is something astonishing. </font color>

I'd support Hillary in the primaries too. If the dems want to lose that bad, I won't argue with them. They should have learned their lesson now about running a Northeast Liberal for President. The only success the democratics have had lately in Presidents is when they run a Southern Governor for the job.

I'd suggest they stick to that strategy if they want to have a chance.

Hilliary Clinton was the hardest working most intelligent woman in the Whitehouse since Elenor R. No wonder men hate her, right?

Judging by the hundreds of women who lined up to buy her best selling book, I'd say she is very well liked by the women in this country, and admired for all her efforts.

But Gayle, you will notice I did not go back and trash every Democrat First Lady back to WWII like you did to the Republican First Ladies. Your partisanship is so obvious.

Let's leave my bra out of this, typical male chauvinist statement.

Higher standards for the President, Guess you think Nixon had high standards, and never embarrassed the country, LMAO.

Hannity's books, again, doesn't even address the issue being discussed, whether women liked Hillary and would vote for her.

I don't really think Hilliary has intentions of running for president, the right wing mud slinging voyeur mongering republican "Christians" made her life miserable enough when she was in the Whitehouse the last time. She has stated over and over that she isn't interested, although I have no doubt, by the time Little Bushy gets finished with us, amost any democrat will be able to win the next election.

37 to 40 or our boys killed in Falluja? (They were sent there by someone who copped out when it was his turn to fight for our country.) Now the enemy has just moved north, all for what? Too bad Little Bushy wouldn't listen to the one man who knew what he was talking about, Powell.

You kidding? Keeping Chubby Hubby in his pants was a full-time job.

Actually, our "overnight New Yorker" was the only first lady in my time who was trotted out and given a serious and official "assignment", ie fixing the health-care system. I think she even had a title to go with it. Were her results consistent with eight years of focused effort?

Meanwhile Bill, who campaigned on a potpourri of lofty ideas, spent his first half-year in office bleating about the earth-shattering issue of "don't ask, don't tell" for gays in the military.

Slander, seems a strong word, I simply stated the facts as I have read them in NUMEROUS accounts and biography's on the first ladies.

If you have some other information regarding efforts and projects that these other first ladies accomplished to match the work and accomplishments of H.C. then state them, while I liked many of them myself, Betty Ford, Ladybird, Jaqueline, I certainly didn't see them as anything more than Grand hostesses of the Whitehouse.

I get tired of people bashing the Clintons, especially republicans, when they had the biggest crook ever in the WH.

I'm sure if Hilliary could have gotten Laura Bush's smile, nod, smile nod, smile nod routine down, no one would have anything to critisize her for. She was a doer, who rolled up her sleves and jumped into the fray as a very young woman. The republican smear machine accused the Clinton's of everything imaginable, including murder for heavens sake. Yet all they could COME up with was a little, well never mind.

From those who like to label people:
Right = Conservative = Republican
Left = Liberal = Democrat

But now "independent" has a location on that "direction" scale?

So on the sliding scale from left to right (or from right to left if you prefer), where is the official place for "independent"? That is, how can one know if they are left of or right of "independent"? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

And then, if they're left of "independent", does that automatically make them Liberal and Democrat? And if they're right of "independent", does that automatically make them Conservative and Republican?

I'm so bad at labeling people...

Good point SPetty, where is "independent"? Sounds like Deeman was considering it to be "centrist" or "moderate". Gail is certainly far left of centrist or moderate, but that may be her definition of independent. Independent certainly doesn't mean one is somewhere midway between liberal and conservative. We do need a scale, don't we?

If you have some other information regarding efforts and projects that these other first ladies accomplished to match the work and accomplishments of H.C. then state them,
<font color="blue"> I asked about Hillary's accomplishments in those eight years and simply got no response. I didn't say, "She didn't try to do anything", I just wanted some clarification on all those accomplishments the others don't have. </font color>

I'm sure if Hilliary could have gotten Laura Bush's smile, nod, smile nod, smile nod routine down, no one would have anything to critisize her for. <font color="blue"> It does look good on an elegant firt lady doesn't it? </font color> She was a doer, who rolled up her sleves and jumped into the fray as a very young woman. <font color="blue"> Young lawyer, former republican, outstanding legal skills, "stands by her man", many good qualities. Never denied that. Do I have to trust her because you do? </font color> The republican smear machine accused the Clinton's of everything imaginable, including murder for heavens sake. Yet all they could COME up with was a little, well never mind. <font color="blue"> The Democratic Smear machine would never do that, would they? </font color>

I will leave your bra out of this from now on, I promise, really. Let's do lunch....

Gayle, if you are independent, where do you fall on the political scale, really. I'm not being smart here but you seem like a closet democrat to me. If Bush had lost I might have claimed to be a Marxist, so I would not have really lost. </font color>

<font color="blue"> Just my guess, without a dictionary, but, an independent would seem to be not closely enough aligned with either party to choose affiliation with that group. While they might agree on substantive matters, something in the platform or values of that party does not match their views. So, an independent could very well be a screaming liberal that wants full socialism or a Marxist at the other end of the spectrum. My feel is that most independents chose issue by issue the candidate that meets their agenda or beliefs. I also feel most end up in that vast center where they see value in parts of both parties with a fringe few that are left or right wing nuts, according to the model of Harley wheels we are talking about. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif </font color>

Hi there,
I've read many books about the Kennedy's. I always liked Jackie. Jackie liked herself enough, she never did anything she didn't want to do. She was definately a plus for her falandering husband, who was a hunk for sure. I thought she was remarkable, intelligent, and really had a great sense of humour. Those were different times, and women were admired for different things, Elenor was ahead of her time, IMO.

THE FAITH BASED LEADERSHIP COUNCIL DENOUNCES THE RACIAL MOTIVATED ATTACKS UPON DR. CONDOLEEZZA RICE

PRESS RELEASE

November 19, 2004

(Washington DC)---- The Faith Based Leadership Council (FBLC)(formerly the National Faith Based Initiative Coalition), a group of over 200 black clergy and members of the Faith Based Community, denounced the racial motivated attacks upon Dr. Condoleezza Rice by Editorial Cartoonists Jeff Danziger, Pat Oliphant, Garry Trudeau, the Washington Post and New York Times.

The three cartoonists have for several months used racial stereotypes to conduct their personal character assassination of Dr. Rice’s integrity because she has made the choice to serve in the Bush Administration.

“These cartoonists believe that the liberal views of the Washington Post and New York Times somehow provides cover for them to engage in racist attacks upon Dr. Rice and any other minority in the Bush Administration,” said Oliver N.E. Kellman Jr. Executive Director of the FBLC. “Mr. Danziger’s, Mr. Oliphant’s and Mr. Trudeau’s racist depictions of Dr. Rice are of the most twisted Ku Klux Klan/Skinhead Mindset. “I am astonished that the NAACP, Rainbow-Push and other traditional civil rights groups did not denounce this type of trash from the very first day it was reported.” “Instead, they are silent witnesses to this racially motivated character assassination because of Dr. Rice’s politics.”

“The FBIC believes in the advancement of all Americans, no matter their political affiliation, gender or ethnic background said Kellman. “Dr. Rice has been singled out for persecution by a handful of bigoted liberals who have characterized her as a steppin and fetchin sambo, I believe that they feel threatened and disturbed by the fact that Dr. Rice will soon be the most powerful Black woman in the United States as Secretary of State.” “The Washington Post and New York Times should feel shame for becoming vehicles for racism and bigotry by those on the left.”

The FBIC is calling upon the cartoonists, the Washington Post and the New York Times to publicly apologize to Dr. Rice. White liberals in the media have come to feel that they can openly attack any Black conservative that chooses to serve the nation.

The FBIC is calling upon the Justice Department to conduct a full investigation into these incidents, where the Civil Rights of Dr. Rice and General Colin Powell may have been violated by the promotion of racial bigotry towards persons of color serving their nation.
