Silly Mrs. Clinton

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,292782,00.html

That really doesn't surprise me. Another example of hypocrisy from the left.

Just out of curiosity, is there any reason you always refer to her as Mrs. Clinton?

So Clinton IS "the left"?

Wow, we could go on and on about politicians (on both sides) and their flip flops, but it wouldn't represent the left or right.

Waste of a thread.

Well, she seems to be running with a "I'm my own woman" demeanor. Why do you think all her bumper stickers say "Hillary" while everyone else's say the last name? I think she is trying to, to a degree, distance herself from Bill, or at least his presidency of the 90s. So I call her Mrs. Clinton just to acknowledge her Clinton-ness.

Rush does the same

How is it? Why so angry just because I point out a hypocritical statement? You didnt need to respond to it. I've seen some threads of yours that I've regarded as wastes...

And yes, Clinton is the left. Dont be one of the fools that thinks she's a moderate.

Dear God.

The entire Democratic party (save maybe a couple) would be considered centrist even in Canada, much less the rest of the world.

And even in the US, only a FOOL would consider Hillary on the left given how she has "adjusted" (to put it politely) her stances over the last several years.

You could call her SENATOR Clinton.

Among Presidential hopefuls Dennis Kucinich is the left, Hillary is not.

Funny how she just can't win with some people...by printing Hillary, rather than Clinton, stickers she's distancing herself from Bill's presidency and needs to be criticized...so if she made up a bunch of Clinton '08 stickers and ran as CLINTON, well of course she'd be trying to capitalize on Bill's popularity and ride his coattails to the White House. Those Clintons, such opportunists.

One of the networks (not FOX of course) needs to set up a "Rush cam" for election night, because I want live footage of him if Hillary does win...I think his head might actually explode.

This is why it's a waste. Generalizations are a waste. Clinton is a moderate, and even if she wasn't she doesn't represent the "left" as a whole, therefore she is not THE LEFT, as you keep saying.

But please continue with your silly generalizations.

If she wins, he'll have something to complain about for years. Hillary riles up the right; it's good business for him.

Plus, do you think he actually enjoys having to defend Bush? <wink>

I think they say Hillary partly for the women's vote and partly to distinguish herself from Clinton - see, I called him Clinton, because that's how everyone thinks of him. So she went with Hillary. And that's distinguish, not distance...she's better off closer, I think more than 50% of Americans preferred the 8 Clinton years to the 8 Bush years.

Let's not bring logic into this thread.

My bad...I meant to say, Hillary clearly goes with "Hillary" on her bumper stickers to capitalize on the fame of Hillary Duff.
