  •  Apparently they had a reason for this (6+ / 0-)

    From the endorsement, the NYT Ed Board seems to think Hillary is the best choice to keep the health insurers in place and feed them more business.

    I guess if that's your priority, Hillary's the best choice....

    •  Whatever. (9+ / 0-)

      Make sure you don't get the blinds off your eyes.

      I have my share of disagreements with the Times, but as Susan said so well, the Editorial really praises all democrats, and critizes republicans.  Hillary Clinton's praise: her intellect, her work ethics, her well-earned respect by leaders in American and outside, and more are all earned and well deserved.

          Hillary would end the 'white guy' dynasty, which has been going strong in American democracy for more than 200 years.

            I wouldn't count your chickens yet. There is a LONG way to go.

            The GOP is quite capable of winning. Especially if you dont take them seriously.

            I have seen many easy Demo wins turn into losses.

            •  Obama gets the Independent vote (0+ / 0-)

              Obama gets the youth to turn out.  Obama gets the party faithful in a general election.

              Hillary gets eaten alive by the republican attack machine.

              i still think she'd win but Hillary is a bad word in red america... worse than Hussein.  

              How in the hell does hillary have an advantage over barack in a general election???

              NYTIMES... really???

              I would like to hear more specifics from the guy though, NYTIMES got that right.  hes starting to come across as vague and repetitive.  No matter how uplifting and right on his message and delivery are, theyre getting a little stale.

            what's more important, having a non-white-dude as president, or undoing the damaged caused by Reagan-Bush-Bush?

            •  Merit and competence. (0+ / 0-)

              Of course, you are right. After Bush, America really needs competent leadership who knows his/her head from ass. As Biden put it, the next President has no margin for error.  So many challenges, and all pressing.

              My comment above is what I say to those who are too cute and keep bringing the 'dynasty' theme.  As if there is nothing better to worry one about.  Sure, it may matter.  Even if it does, Hillary being a woman (a first) trumps her connection to Bill.

              But really, the most important thing is to vote for the BEST person. Then you won't have buyer's remorse.  I think the BEST person is Hillary, but of course, it's OK that you don't agree.

        It's amusing to be called a Rovian minion (sic) after all my time here.

        Don't assume I forget anything.  Hillary didn't work on single payer in 93, as a matter of fact -- that's not what Hillarycare was about.  It was universal health care, but focused more on subsidies and purchasing pools for private insurance, with a public alternative.  That's not single payer.  And the insurance mouthpieces were Harry and Louise, not Jane and somebody.

        Please know what you're talking about before you toss insults around, lest somebody think you're a moran.
