    Listening to the news on the radio yesterday as I was in the "big city" and then last night watching the news and lots of people are coming out with stories about Hillary's real nature . . . . DeeDee Myers is one. George Stepanopolus (sp?). That guy who was their advisor for years (can't remember his name - Dick Morris???) . . . . I guess she is not a very nice person. I'm reading "The Devil Wore Prada" . . .I don't think Hillary is that bad.

    Can we not find better candidates? On both sides?

    Ahhh, yes! That "good old 'both sides' " argument!


    Like there still is a difference between the two Statist parties!

    I think the Democratic party may be shooting themselves in the foot so to speak with their candidates. They have three strong canditates in Clinton, Obama, and Edwards. When it comes time for the primary the voting will be split among the canditates which could result in indeciscion among the electorate and alter the outcome of who will be nominated for the democratic party.

    My feeling about Hilary is that she is utterly power hungry and I don't trust her. As much as I hate Bush and company, I won't vote for Hillary. I guess it'll be Ralph Nader again.

    1. She's educated and not (I would hope so having been a college prof) functionally illiterate.

    2. She already is aware of what the job entails.

    3. She speaks coherently.

    4. She only has one family member in the business so there would be less chance of nepotism.

    Great ... another democrat who can't win. Too much baggage.

    The reason Bill Clinton won was because he got a third of the Republican vote. He was both a southern Bubba who appealed to Johnny six pack and a Rhodes scholar who appealed to liberals.

    I can't for the life of me imagine any Republicans voting for Hillary ... Just because she got elected in New York doesn't mean she'll appeal to middle America. Republicans can't stand her and, she'll be the best thing that could happen to them if she gets nominated.

    How many failures do they need to figure this out? Liberals from the northeast don't win i.e. Dukakis, Kerry, etc.

    They need a conservative democrat from the south or the west but, will any of those guys get nominated? Probably not.

    Yet another blown opportunity. Ugh.

    The first woman president will probably be a conservative, like Margaret Thatcher. Same with the first Black president. The whole idea is to pull votes away from the Democrats for the the Republicans. For instance, if they had Colin Powell or another Black candidate, they would pull Black voters away from their tradition Democratic base.

    The Democrats need to have a more traditional appearing candidate so they can obtain the centrist middle American vote, who are more likely to be suspicious of a non-traditional appearing candidate. The Democrats already can count on the hardcore feminist vote. Hilary will offend more traditionally minded pro-life voters because they associate her with Hollywood liberals such as Barbara Streisand.

    One big problem with Hillary for me is that she appears to be a part of a big political machine. Look at the way she was sweep into office in NY city by her powerful backers, a state in which she had never been a resident until she decided to be a Senator.

    NOT with bill at her side, orginal odd couple

    i believe that she has the decision making abilities, she has probablity learn to control her temper from her white house days when she had to make public appearance with him and smile while everyone was asking about his running around, she has made friends/contacts in the senate- after allbright and rice the american public is open to women in office of leadership

    i could definitely vote for if she go rid of the excess baggage
