Cable t.v. or not to cable?

Verte, isn't cable t.v. accessible in your 'Bama area? Various speeches were repeated throughout the evening and into the night on shows such as "Hardball", "This Evening with Aaron Brown", "Hannity & Colmes", "Larry King Live", "Special Report with Brit Hume", "Scarborough Country", etc. -- all of which have their shows repeated. That allows me and millions of others to always catch it and even see it more than once if U wish!

For those who never noticed over the past decade or so, THE BUSHES and THE CLINTONS are very compatable and affable with each other. Bush Jr.'s speech on Bill Clinton was most complimentary and unique. A beaming Clinton was visibly delighted. It'll be very ironic if after a Clinton succeeding a Bush and then a different Bush succeeding a Clinton that a different Clinton will next succeed a Bush! By then, it will be old hat 4 them.

Verte, it you still haven't seen the speeches try this:

Load up realplayer and click on file->open and paste in the below link.

Link:
rtsp://video.c-span.org/15days/e111804_clinton.rm?mode=compact

(FYI - Bono & Edge come on at 1 hour 5 min.)


Stonewall - Bush Sr.'s speech on Clinton stuck out to me more than Bush Jr's. The whole thing was incredible!

Yeah, I get cable. I haven't gotten around to watching the speeches due to a huge distraction with a nasty illness and the aftermath of the thing. I'll get the videos. BEP I also have friends who criticized Clinton from the left, mainly for the welfare thing. On the whole I was pretty happy with him as president myself.

Did anyone see President Clinton the other night on that special w/ Peter Jennings? He said his favorite singers include Tony Bennett, Sheryl Crow, and what a surprise, Bono!

I wonder if there is anything Bono or U2 related in the library. I'd love to go there. I've only been to one Presidential Library, the JFK. It is an awesome place, beautiful location too.

I hear the Clinton library has half price ladies night

I wouldn't doubt this. Hillary is a bright woman with a strong point of view. She very well may be the first female president. I don't see any competition for that anytime soon. It would be hard to teach kids our presidents, when we go from Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton... I never really thought of it that way until you mentioned that.

It's about time we had a "first man" in the White House, what do you guys think?

Sure he made mistakes in the field of his personal life, but I'm not picking up a stone to throw at him. Overall, i sure wish like hell he could run again.
Oh, odd use of the word, orgy, u2democrat...but i understand what ya mean. Can you imagine sitting at a table with them all? Orgy of the minds....
i agree

(A) I never really thought of it that way until you mentioned that.
(B) It's about time we had a "First Man" in the White House. What do you guys think?
M.F. Wannabe (strong first initials):

A) Thanx for your sorta compliment re: my Bush/Clinton/Bush/Clinton observation/connection. I'm sure U heard Bill Clinton go out of his way the other evening and strongly compliment George Bush Jr. -- especially saying that prior to the election he publicly stated: "Why in these United States of America can't people like both President Bush and John Kerry?" That is very heavy, honest and humane and especially from a Democrat president, who is supposed to be supporting and praising only the Dem candidate. Of course, we know who the CLINTONS wanted to win. And, he did! :

See an ad that reflects THE CLINTONS wanting BUSH Jr. for Prez in 2004: www.STONEWALLvets.org/businessadvertisers.htm

B) Sure, it's about time in the White House for a U.S. "First Man"!
Basically for two reasons: 1) women are at least 50% of the U.S. population, so it's only fair to at last have a female president; and
2) many Westernized nations have already had female presidents such as Israel (Golda Meir), India (Indira Gandhi) and, of course, England (Margaret Thatcher) -- and other non-Western countries such as Pakistan and the Philippines. So, bring her on! And my guess for first First Man: none other than Mr. Bill Clinton! In fact, I believe that he can all but guarantee HILLARY winning!

She would not win...and, i will cite Family Feud as my proof. According to 100 people men fear Hillary Clinton more than any other woman, Oprah being second.
Actually, I know so many people left and right who can't stand Hillary. She may have the Republican background, but she is seen as a East Elitist.
Bill Clinton said something interesting on the Daily Show recently. Something to the effect that democrats do better when people think.
Thanks for the love, lover of larry mullen jr.

We should never fear a woman just for reasons of power. I think women have long overpaid their debts to society, and whether they're right or left, that shouldn't be an issue as to stereotype them. Women should have every opportunity to be just as successful as men in this world. No exceptions.

I appreciate Clinton going out of his way to do that. That's what I admire about him. In spite of the division that some democrats are trying to continue, Bill Clinton didn't go that way. He's totally right! We should like Bush and Kerry in a way that has no regard to their policies, because they love this country and they are two men who are willing to lead it. They both understand that being president is a tough job, and political opposition is not easy to overcome.
