Maybe she should break a bone every day. I'm sure there are plenty of volunteers to help the old gal out.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Maybe she will go away for 20 years and we can worship her.

Well, if she stops talking for a while, people forget what a horrific biatch she was during the campaign. I'm fine with her as SecState, and by all I can tell, she's doing great there, but I don't want her as Pres or VP. Ever.

Out of sight. Out of mind.

Not a better way to be.

The less time Hillary Clinton is not getting unreasonably and irresponsibly butchered by right-wing media, the more popular she gets

FTFY :)

Hillary Clinton is like the place you grew up. The longer you are away from it, the better idea it seems to be to go back. Once you go back, you remember very quickly why you left in the first place.

Dick Cheney is also more popular than he was a year ago.

I think that almost covers it. We'll return to the more basic "dammit, STFU, you vile harpy; I can tolerate no more of your shameless lies" portion of analysis later.

You forgot the part where Obama worshippers took lessons from Limbaugh and treated her like Limbaugh had for the last 15 years.

No, there were a lot more people following Cheney a year ago. Of course, they were carrying torches at the time...

She is a lying pseudo-intellectual biatch who looks down on everyone, and that is her good side.

Did I miss anthing?

Bill went on that prick's show to shill for her while she took off to kiss ass to that Right Wing paper that accused her of killing Vince Foster.

It's really not worth getting righteous over campaigns.

Yes, but in the same way that you feel more positively disposed towards a rapist once he stops raping you.

Phil Herup: She is a lying pseudo-intellectual biatch who looks down on everyone, and that is her good side.

Dude, I've got no love for Hillary, but she graduated from Wellesley and Yale Law (where she was on the board of the law review). She may be many things, but "pseudo-intellectual" isn't one of them.

FTFA: "Her star power has been an enormously effective tool for us," says Tom Donilon, the deputy national security adviser.


Bullsh*t.

If she hadn't been given this post, she'd already be running for President in '12. This shuts her up in that respect, and she is kept shut up in every other respect as well - just like the hapless Joe Biden.

They're both pitiful.

You don't see her because she is busy working underground with the Clinton Machine trying to take out Obama. His polls are heading south now and the pressure on him is enormous in no small due to the smear efforts of the ever present Clinton Machine. She wants that presidency so bad she can taste it. Her goal is to emerge as the only solution to whatever mess we end up in by 2012. As usual, the sheeple will not know what hit them. Obama needs to focus more on counter Clinton Machine efforts and never assume Billary has suddenly become trustworthy.

I voted for her.

Good grief, man...have you not seen any of the right-wing links posted in Fark for the last six months?

I voted for her, I voted for him in the General. I Obama, but I absolutely love Hillary.

Eitherway, I'm glad more of the country is coming to accept her.

Did you really the whole Obama?

It's all part of the new U.S. foreign policy of staying out of everyone else's business.

Assuming Obama keeps up similar approval ratings, I suspect Biden and Hillary will flip jobs in 2012. For that matter, this deal may already have been in place from the get-go.

67 Beetle: It's all part of the new U.S. foreign policy of staying out of everyone else's business.

This is a really good idea, as the "American Century" ended with 2001. It's time for us to step back and let younger, hungrier superpowers take the world stage.

Gore Vidal has been babbling about this for more than half a century, but in the last ten years its become clear that he's not a wachjob but rather a visionary.

I realize Biden has the foreign policy creds, but.. would you rather have the Gaffemaster in his relatively harmless VP role.. or talking with heads of state from around the world?

Unless Biden dies or gets his hand caught in the cookie jar (both of which are possible) there's no chance of his being replaced in 1012. When it comes to VP's, "don't change horses in mid-stream" has been the rule since FDR.

Ya, ask Al Gore about that one.

br_g_p: Ya, ask Al Gore about that one.

What, did Clinton have a different VP candidate in '96?
 
2009-06-24 11:17:06 AM
I haven't been a supporter of hers, like ever. But I have thought she would make a better president than McCain (I'm a liberal.) That said, the work she has done so far has been nothing short of excellent. Every time I see Mrs.Clinton in the news she is dignified, qualified and performing better than I expected without the bitterness I had ignorantly anticipated.
I will vote for her if she were to run (after Obama leaves office.)

Dangl1ng: Every time I see Mrs.Clinton in the news she is dignified, qualified and performing better than I expected without the bitterness I had ignorantly anticipated.

That's impressed me, too. She really seems to be enjoying her job without bitterness. But I guess being Sec State of the United States was a hell of a consolation prize.

Rev. Skarekroe: br_g_p: Ya, ask Al Gore about that one.

Maybe that's the problem: Al Gore was replaced with Bizarro Al Gore for the '96 election.

I didn't support her either and while I'm not sure if she would have made a better president than McCain, she would have done a good job. I do agree that as SOS she has been doing a great job. I believe that she is working towards another run for the white house after Obama's second term. I don't think Obama will pick Biden as his running mate, instead he will go with Clinton.

Yeah, that analogy certainly "rings" of obscurity.

I think it also has to do with the visible presence of Pelosi. The more you see Pelosi, the more you realize that there are actually worse human beings out there.
