(Talking Points Memo)   Hillary Clinton is featured in a new meme, so naturally Talking Points Memo does a story on the "Hillary Resurgence." Don't blame me, I voted for Keyboard Cat   (2012.talkingpointsmemo.com ) divider line

As someone who didn't support Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate in 2008, I think she's done a stellar job as SOS.

I would be much more inclined to consider Hillary Clinton for president than I was four years ago.

Four years ago, she was a first term senator who got her seat as a thank you from the party for not divorcing her philandering husband, and she honestly thought that she should be president for the same reason.

Now, she's spent several years as Secretary of State, during one of the most tense periods in the past 80 years, and has done a good job.

That being said, I will NEVER vote for her, because she voted yes on the Iraq war resolution, and that's a decision I cannot support.

i wouldn't have voted for her, simply because i find the idea of 20 year old person having never had a president in their lifetime that wasn't a bush or a clinton absolutely freaking ridiculous.

really had nothing to do with her, everything to do with entrenched political families repulsing me.

that said, she absolutely looks like she are serious secretary. or something.

Stinkyy: And now more effeminate policies (now bursting at the seams with more homo-men for your pleasure!) than ever? That's super-fab, bro.


If you would just go suck a dick, you could stop being so hateful.

It's fun, once you get the hang of it. C'mon man. You know you want to.

someonelse: otherginger: I would be happy with her as Veep but I think Biden doesn't deserve being kicked to the curb.

I would bet that Biden accepted the VP slot with the understanding that it was a one-term deal, and that Hillary would take over for the second term. I'd bet that was the understanding with Hillary when she accepted the SoS nom, too. Unless she truly wasn't planning to run in 2016.


I don't know. As much as VP sounds cool, I honestly think the Sec. of State has more power when it comes to policy than the VP does. If I were Hillary, I would just stay where she is and keep on keeping on.

I thought Hillary and Obama were pretty similar in terms of everything, except he could say he would have voted No on going to Iraq (of course, he said raising the debt ceiling was bad before he got to the White House, too) and she could say he was wimpish on health care. In general, I thought if she managed to get elected (and it was a horrific campaign, no argument there), she would waste less time with reaching across that farking aisle and that she has more balls, figuratively, than Obama has shown. I don't regret voting for her in the primary but will (obviously) vote Obama in the upcoming election.

She won't stay on as Secretary of State and it's a pity - she was good at it. I am less convinced she wants to run for POTUS again but would certainly consider voting for her if she did. I would be happy with her as Veep but I think Biden doesn't deserve being kicked to the curb.

Philip Francis Queeg: Does you deep admiration extend to the rest of Obama's Cabinet?


It does to Obama. I disagree with some of what he has done but overall I think he has done an amazing job as POTUS, especially in this climate.

Philip Francis Queeg: Do you Give Tim Geithner the same level of credit for improvements in the economy? How about how about Gates and Panetta are they "amazing" too?


For the most part yes. I would certainly classify their jobs as "good" but would I take it to "amazing?" I haven't thought about it that much. You know who also did an amazing job? Gen. Petraeus.

I would vote for Clinton, but she ran a terrible campaign. She ran on a platform of experience, while hardly having any more experience than her challenger. She ran a winner-take-all strategy in primaries that were proportionally represented. She surrounded herself with incompetents like Lanny Davis and Mark Penn. Her rhetoric seemed to mostly center around pandering to women. Substinatively, I have no idea what would differ between her and Obama.

During the campaign, she too hugely vague stances on immigration to guns. And by the end of it, she had terrible, terrible ideas (I remember during a debate she thought that her solution to the housing crisis would be to freeze foreclosures for 5 years, which, even if it were possible, it would just be a terrible, terrible idea.) Her main point was on health care, which, unlike her effort in the 1990s, Obama actually passed.

So why is she good again?

Gee, I thought it was because of her politics and the good stuff she tried to accomplish as a FLOTUS.

what_now: and she honestly thought that she should be president for the same reason.



This is a joke right? You do recall who won the (D) nomination and who is currently POTUS, right? You're going to claim Obama was the more experienced/qualified? Ridiculous.

what_now: Now, she's spent several years as Secretary of State, during one of the most tense periods in the past 80 years, and has done a good job.



Try an amazing job. That's why there is discussion about Hillary running for POTUS. Not because of some stupid meme. Because she has been an amazing Sec. of State and thus far for the most part stayed above all the political B.S.
