      •  Hey, remember me? (0+ / 0-)

        Great article in today's NYTimes:
        http://www.nytimes.com/...

        One of many money quotes that you will refuse to believe:

        Republicans in Kansas say Mrs. Clinton’s presence on the ticket would unite their party in opposition to her and give dispirited conservatives a reason to get excited about the race.

        Why do people keep pulling that idea out of their asses?  Things that make you go hmmmm... or let you know you're a Hillary Bot if you refuse to acknowledge what is constantly in front of you.

        Have a good day.  

        P.S. Hey, love those ancient polls Hillary dusted off yesterday.  I've got one that says Teddy Roosevelt is going to win Iowa. Ha!

          You just keep popping up everywhere with the same discredited argument.

          As I have stated quite clearly before, opinion and conjecture does not reality make. But then, you're clearly driven by other people's opinions and not facts, figures, or historical data. You know things that can actually be measured?

          I also notice you conveniently forgot to include the beginning of the very sentence you quoted. I wonder why? Maybe because it says:

          And while vulnerable Democrats like her are not likely to have an easy time even if Senator Barack Obama, John Edwards or any of the other Democratic presidential candidates wins the nomination,

          Or this:

          Advisers to Mrs. Clinton, who has long sought to parry concerns within her party that she is too polarizing, dispute the idea that she could hinder Democratic candidates in Republican districts. They note that New York Democrats gained a net of four House seats in her two Senate elections and that she campaigned actively for House contenders in both.

          "Anyone can speculate, but there are a set of facts that tell a very different story," said Howard Wolfson, communications director for the Clinton campaign. "The actual evidence makes clear that she is an asset in tough districts."

          Or this, which coming from a Republican, (the very party that as a whole you state are making these claims), seems to complelety discredit your argument. I mean, not that it hasn't been done already. Here's the quote:

          And Mr. Doperalski, the county commissioner, as well as his two fellow Republicans on the three-member board, says any antipathy toward Mrs. Clinton will not necessarily mean enmity toward Ms. Boyda. "She will be judged on the job she does," he said.

          Sounds to me that some Republicans don't seem to think Ms. Clinton will drag down her fellow Dem at all. Curious.

          So it seems that what I stated in a previous response to you, that...

          You realize that you can't prove the reality of your assertion, so you instead shift to trying to prove the idea of the reality of your assertion. Unfortunately, that wasn't what drove my response to begin with.

          So until you can actually prove that Ms. Clinton will have a negative effect on fellow Dems, or that Republicans will actually unite to defeat her, then I will continue to assert that you "pulled it out of your ass". And no amount of paranoid, fear-induced ramblings, from you or anyone else, trying to portray Ms. Clinton as the boogie woman will help you.

          Oh, and here's the results of latest SUSA presidential election poll for the state of Kansas:

          Giuliani 49
          Clinton 43

          Giuliani 49
          Obama 41

          Romney 44
          Clinton 48

          Romney 43
          Obama 46

          Huckabee 43
          Clinton 49

          Huckabee 41
          Obama 47

          McCain 55
          Clinton 38

          McCain 53
          Obama 37

          That's quite a difference in a poll of ALL registered voters, including Republicans, don't you think. And Clinton still has the advantage.

          And for someone who continues to claim that Republicans want Hillary Clinton to win the nomination, why on earth would Karl Rove, premiere Republican strategist, be giving advice to Barack Obama, on more than one occasion, on how to defeat Hillary Clinton in the primary? Why would he do that if Republicans want her to win?

          Kinda makes you go...

          hmmmm.
