In Case You Thought Differently After The Democratic National Convention . . .
Bill Clinton still dislikes Barack Obama: Former President Bill Clinton has largely kept himself out of the public eye since his wife lost the Democratic primary to Barack Obama. However in a rare television interview tonight the former president called Republican presidential candidate John McCain “a great man” and praised GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as an “instinctively effective candidate.” On a day when | Read More »
Did any of you catch Diane Sawyer’s interview with Hillary Clinton yesterday? I missed it because of school. I wanted to see it because I found it interesting the past few weeks since Gov. Palin made her national debut that every “prominent” women “leader” the Democrats had stuffed in the back somewhere were rolled out like black people sitting in the back at a Republican | Read More »
Senator Clinton to withdraw from the Ahmadinejad protest. Over Palin.
When I heard that the protest of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s latest visit to the United Nations would be graced with the presence of both Senator Clinton and Governor Palin, I was pleased. It’s a nice thought that the two parties could agree on one thing, at least: that it’s important to remind the UN that just because they like having would-be genocidal maniacs wandering | Read More »
NV UPDATE: Joe Lieberman Rally Today
I went to the Joe Lieberman rally this morning at Temple Beth Sholom in Las Vegas. About 500 people turned out for the event, most of them Independant voters based on what I could tell from talking to them. About 70% of them were middle-aged to retired women who were former Hillary supporters. They were all fired up about John McCain and they all kept | Read More »
Hillary-crats Brainstorming for McCain
I came across a thread in a pro-Hillary forum which is fielding ideas to help McCain.
Embattled Biden Begins Discussion of Eagleton Scenario (Updated with Video!)
The new york times (sic) reports that in a New Hampshire townhall meeting today Joe Biden said that Hillary Clinton should have been the Veep pick: Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democrats’ vice presidential nominee, said this afternoon that perhaps Senator Barack Obama should have chosen someone else as his running mate. Responding to a question at a town hall-style meeting at Nashua Community | Read More »
Rapid response on “Swinegate”. [UPDATED}
[UPDATE: Ed Morrissey of Hot Air weighs in, and he's leaning more towards the sexist interpretation. I dunno. Chowderhead really works for me.] Glenn Reynolds is impressed with the turnaround time on this: …but he wonders if it was actually worth an ad. It’s the laughter that’s the problem for Obama. If nobody had laughed, he’d be in a better position to say that people | Read More »
Dealing with Palin: Obama Intimidated, Clinton Calling it in.
Via Jen Rubin we get this highly amusing story: Team Clinton Says Obama Intimidated By Palin Factor … Reporters tried to get Mrs. Clinton to talk about John McCain’s running mate at a tiny press conference after the event, but she refused even to mention Mrs. Palin’s name, saying only, “I am campaigning for Senator Obama and advocating on behalf of the Democratic Party and | Read More »
Democratic Analysis of Hillary and Sarah: Heroine and Whore
Hat tip to Moe Lane at Redstate for pointing me to Michelle Cottle’s convoluted reasoning at The New Republic concerning Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. Titled ‘Shattered’, it starts out asking the big question for everyone on the Left, “Can someone please tell me what the hell happened?” Obama supporters want the answer to offer substance to go with the stuff they’ve been shoveling. They | Read More »
Thoughts on Hillary Clinton`s run for President
Thoughts on Hillary Clinton`s run for President I am not a fan of Hillary Clinton. In fact, in speaking with a friend who is a big supporter of Barack Obama, I said that Hillary’s voice to me sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard. I don’t know if I could survive 4 years of her as president. I would need to wear ear plugs the entire | Read More »
Some observations about the VP picks.
Let us examine several data points, which I freely admit are merely put out there to mess with various heads. There’s no valid reason to take any of these seriously. No, really. Not at all. I’m just doing it to be cruel. Anyway: First. Senator Barack Obama never had any intention of picking Senator Clinton for his running mate; no vetting process ever took place. | Read More »
Notice what is missing in this story: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton marched for labor and stumped with Democrats on Saturday, but sidestepped questions about the woman who has taken her place as the nation’s most-talked-about female leader. Clinton brushed aside questions about Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin during appearances at New York City’s annual Labor Day parade and later during a stop on Staten | Read More »
From The Department Of “Wow!”
Really, it is worth asking how much the Obama campaign should trust the Clintonians. From where I sit, the answer clearly is “not much”: Sarah Palin found some unlikely allies Wednesday as leading academics and even former top aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton endorsed the Republican charge that John McCain’s running mate has been subject to a sexist double standard by the news media and | Read More »
As a Woman, Does N.O.W. Speak for You?
On June 30, 1966, the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.) was founded with this statement of purpose, “To take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all the privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men.” All women in America owe N.O.W. a debt of gratitude for the work they did for women’s rights.

Hillary Clinton, the Smartest Woman in America and would-be first female President, issued the following statement on August 30, the day Sarah Palin’s selection was announced: We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin’s historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate. | Read More »
