Hillary for VP Part II

According to the Drudge Report......

Hillary is the pick......


If this is indeed true.....this quote is not going to help I can see the ads now!

[Q]June 30, 2004 -- "Many of you are well enough off that . . . the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

Honest, but not good.

Anna Quinlan 's Newsweek editorial may point to why she may very well be the pick:

[Q]First there were the soccer moms who gave Bill Clinton a boost in 1996. Then came the security moms who turned out for the GOP in 2002. This year the most desperately sought female voters don't have a catchy title, but some Democrats are convinced that they could help swing the election. They're America's 46 million unmarried women -- a group that ranges from never-marrieds just out of college to single mothers, middle-aged divorcees, and widows. Despite their differences, these women have two things in common: deep economic insecurity and a tendency to turn out for Democrats when they vote -- by a 30-percentage-point margin in some polls.[/Q]

My mind is made up if this happens.......

Yeah, that does sound like a bad idea. She's smarter than that, so she must be planning some alternative that will still provide tax incentives.

I like Clinton enough to support her as VP, but I'd prefer Wesley Clark or even Edwards.

So tax increases aren't imminent? How else are we supposed to resolve the deficit?

Also, that quote selectively fails to mention that she was talking to wealthy supporters.

Shoot the messenger.


It scares me to think that some politicians look at individual wages as part of their own slush fund.

Yes, shoot the messenger.

Nobody wants to hear that we may have to raise taxes on the wealthy.

You are talking about Cheney and the no-bid contracts for Haliburton, right?

It is in the papers again today that Haliburton is taking another charge off. Most likely would be in BK without no-bid contracts.


Not surprising Cheney pushed Iraq and lied about it.

Does anyone think the wealthy are ever going to pay, or suffer? Don't fool yourself. They will find a way around it, they always do. If they don't, they will take it out of the working person's hide with cut salaries, benefits, and downsizing. Who will pay for this 'common good?' Why, the average hard working man and woman in America above the poverty level but below the wealthy level- most of us Our money will be taken for programs we do not support, and our own families will suffer. This is why I could never vote for them, socialism disguised as helping the poor at the expense of the wealthy, but in reality, poor aren't helped much, and the middle class, which has been sinking for years, will suffer more.

I am tired of people (especially the old who remember FDR) saying the democrat is for the poor. Why are there still so many poor? Get real, no politician cares about the poor, they don't have any money.

And Hillary is a b****

But I honestly think they will not pick her because she is so extreme she will scare away the moderates and many of the 'anybody but Bush' crowd and will make Kerry look like just another Dukakis.

I don't think Hillary is going to be on the ticket. She's way too controversial and divisive. Besides which, she's still serving her Senate term. I have no idea who the pick will be--but I feel sure it's not going to be Hillary.

I hope not.

Hey, suppose she and Kerry both resign their Senate seats to run, then they lose... and get replaced

I'm sure if this was illegal, the appropriate charges will be filed.
