Just answer the damn question kid - if you ignore it, try to sweep it under the rug or get mad when someone bugs you about it, they'll just keep after you.

So quit thinking yer something special and answer. the. question.

Or be prepared to hear it asked at every event you ever attend for the rest of your life.

I'm wondering if the Clinton campaign is planting people to ask this to distract from the recent bad press and drum up sympathy for Chelsea, while subtly smearing supporters of Hillary's opponents.

Or, maybe I need to stop following this campaign stuff for a few days. Either way.

CruiserTwelve: Why should she answer it? I agree with her - it's nobody's business.

It is important to me because I consider it one of my first impressions of lady Clinton's ability to make the right choice.

And according to my definition of right choice, standing by your man when he is getting blow-jobs by an intern = fail.

It tells me that in all likelihood, their marriage is marriage of convenience and probably always has been. It tells me, that if given the option of choosing power vs. real love, she would opt for power. And that does not sit well with me.

In my opinion, the character of the President of the United States of America is very important. I witnessed lady Clinton stand by a scum-bag husband who has cheated on her several times throughout their marriage...... these behaviors reflect on a generation of baby-boomers who thought that it was noble to stand by your man and play the part, regardless of what he does.... and that whole generation pisses me off and sends the wrong message to every other woman in this country.

I'm not Christian and I don't give 2-flying farks about the sanctity of marriage. Open marriages are perfectly fine, I really don't care what you do... but if you make the commitment to get married to someone and agree to be faithful, you damn well better keep your word...and if you don't... they damn well need to kick your useless ass to the curve... and...if...they...don't....and still want to be considered for the office of POTUS, they damn well be willing to explain themselves.

Hillary ought to answer why she has stayed with BJ Clinton for all these years and/or if it is merely a marriage of political convenience.

I had the first thought you had, about planted questioners.

Then I had the second thought you had. Yeah I gotta give this up for a while.

I'm gonna hang in for the day just starting, though. Today should be a special kind of trainwreck, as people slowly realize what Farkistanian national holiday it is.

uncorked: Hillary ought to answer why she has stayed with BJ Clinton for all these years and/or if it is merely a marriage of political convenience.

Why? Does you affect you in any way? If she said "he beats me and I'm afraid to get away from him", would you feel sympathy or just laugh? If she said "man, he is huge and I can't get it from anyone else", would you really give a rat's ass?

2008-04-01 12:42:46 AM  
She's perfectly within her right not to answer the question, just as the people are perfectly within their right to not vote for her mother. Not answering questions kind of undermines the purpose of going on a Q and A tour though. And her retort that "I'm sure your family has private issues" is bs. My dad wasn't President, my mom isn't running for President, no one in my family has been impeached, no one in my family is required to make their tax returns a matter of public record.... Either suck it up and give real answers or go back to your Wall Street job. Seriously, isn't a genuine "It was an aweful experience that my family went through..." type answer better than.."FARK you, I'm not gonna answer such an inappropriate question."

Character is about as important as a warm bucket of spit. George W Bush had an appealing character during his first run, that got us nowhere. The only thing we need is a competent president.
 
2008-04-01 12:44:40 AM  
Welcome to politics is all I can say to her. How she can't expect that question at every event till it's answered is beyond me; regardless whether or not it's actually our business became irrelevant the moment she sets foot onto that state because it will be asked time and time again.

The romantic aspects of marriage are only part of the equation. A large part of marriage is and always has been about business. Hillary is within her rights to marry and to stay married to whomever she likes. If she deals unfairly with her husband, then that reflects poorly on her character. But the mere fact that she stands to gain from continuing her partnership with Bill is no reason that she shouldn't stay married to him - indeed, it would be a much worse marriage if it offered nothing to her.

Private lives are private for a reason. Should we start asking McCain about how his numerous affairs with his first wife reflect on his true bravery? Should we start to question B Hussein's parent's relationship? Fark no! Let the policies speak for themselves.

i went to see her speak today at UNC. no blow job questions, which meant people lost interest and started walking away toward the end. still, i liked her a lot better than her mom, that's for damn sure

seabass242: Character is about as important as a warm bucket of spit. George W Bush had an appealing character during his first run, that got us nowhere. The only thing we need is a competent president.

Irony: Someone calling for a "more competent president" that defines GWB's character as "appealing during his first run"

As for electing the President of the United State of America, I personally am unwilling to compromise on either character or competency. I demand both. And from what I've seen so far, Obama has restored my faith that this demand can be met at the same time.

desertshadowz: Don't keep pimpin' out this skag to the press and or general public if you keep expecting softball questions.

How is it 'pimping out'? She's 27 years old. It's no different than Obamaman's wife campaigning for him - they're like 15 years apart

Shaggy_C: Private lives are private for a reason. Should we start asking McCain about how his numerous affairs with his first wife reflect on his true bravery?

Yes. His affairs relect on his judgement.

Should we start to question B Hussein's parent's relationship?

Yes, he has already brought his grandmother's relation to him up as an issue. So his relationship with his parents is not out of bounds. Did his parents raise him as a Muslim? Were they a part of the black community or the white community? (this seems to matter among the Democrats). And so forth.

Fark no! Let the policies speak for themselves

Problem is, that Hillary is principly running on her having been the wife of the ex-President -- an impeached ex-President at that. She has a distinct lack of policy experience. So her relationship with him is a valid avenue of questioning.

Alien Robot: So her relationship with him is a valid avenue of questioning.

There's the rub. Did his affairs directly affect her involvement with policy? I doubt it.

This.

Besides, these politicians are expected to set an example. They don't get to have personal lives.
 
2008-04-01 01:35:34 AM  
There's both personal and public aspects to the whole Lewinski matter. Chelsea can't just write it all off as "family business." What went on in the white house, around the dinner table, isn't our business, but I think there are valid points about how the Clintons handled the problem that are fair game.

Someone else pointed out that if Chelsea's a surrogate, then she must be expected to deal with such questions.

Which I think is a fair point.

Another fair point is that I don't remember hearing any other surrogates being asked the same question.

I support Obama and hate Hillary more than any politician alive today, second only to Dubya.

HOWEVER

Asking Chelsea about her dad's BJ in the Oval Office is classless and disgusting. Ask HILLARY; leave their daughter out of it.

No girl should ever be asked a question like that in public and in reference to her own father, even a Clinton. What in the world has happened to class and manners?

Hillary should be asked about this every day until she gives an answer. "Mrs. Clinton, why did you stand by your husband after being repeatedly humiliated by his infidelity?" It's an honest question that deserves an answer, since it goes to the very foundation of Hillary's political success.

But leave the #!@% daughter out of it.
 
2008-04-01 01:52:32 AM  
What was hilarious to me was her tone when she refused to answer the first time, like she was shocked, -shocked-, that someone would make an issue out of it.

"None of your business"? Girlfriend, please. Once you do the deed on the public's time, it becomes our business. Period.
