  •  I don't hate Hillary (4.00)
    But her finger-to-the wind approach to everything from the Iraq war to flag burning has long since gotten old. Today's move comes straight out of the Dick Morris playbook from 10 years ago.

    Every Saturday, there's a new weekly roundup of Michigan politics here on Daily Kos.

    •  I Think... (4.00)
      ...we're having the same general reaction.  I agree with you on her rationale.  And that makes me yawn.  Hard to get pissed at her for it, but it sure doesn't do much to get me excited about her as a leader or a candidate.

      The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

      •  I Think.... (4.00)
        ...a lot of us here have the same views about her.  No way would we vote for her in the primary, but against any republican, for the good of the country we'd support her in the general.

        HAND delivered this idea for a bill to her on one of his trips to DC 2 yrs. ago.  

           Proposal:  Submit a bill to the House and Senate containing the following.

        1.    All United States of America flags must be manufactured in the United States of America.
        2.    All merchandise sold in the United States of America that depicts or displays the flag of the United States of America must be manufactured in the United States of America.
        3.    All merchandise sold in the United States of America that depicts or displays any or all of the following must be manufactured in the United States of America.
        (a).  The phrase - United States of America
        (b).  The acronym - USA
        (c).  The word - America

        She thought it was something she needed to look into - said she'd get one of her aids to call him back - never happened.  

        Maybe it's just me, but I find it much more offensive to find an American Flag made overseas by some underpaid child than some schmuck trying to make a point and burning the Flag.

    •  Keep it up, Hill.... (none)
      She seems to keep forgetting there's a primary before the general, and one would hope whichever non-DLC favorite that becomes her strongest competitor learned important lessons from Dean's campaign.

      One almost wonders if Biden will put his hat in the wring just to play Gephardt this time around.

      •  Yeah (none)
         An announcer from back stage:( playing the part of Joe Lieberman is Hillary Clinton ) and then
        ( playing the part of Dick Gephardt is Joe Biden)

        America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand-Harry S. Truman
