    I would NEVER compare her to Spiro Agnew.

    WRT Bill Clinton, as we've already seen he's the joker in the deck that has already played himself at least once.  Frankly I think he cost Hillary the nomination.  She was #2 on my list behind Edwards as late as the first day of yKos.  (Before the "Lobbyists are people, too" comment and Dodd's pwnage of BillO.)

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      And their punches stick.  Face it, much as we hated it, that "3 AM ad" was effective.

      Many things cost Clinton the nomination other than her husband -- chiefly (1) the war vote, and (2) not effectively fundraising from small-dollar donors in 2007, such that she could compete nationwide on Super Tuesday 2008 and for the rest of February.

      •  D*mn Skippy, they sure do. (0+ / 0-)

        It' their bedfellows that concern me.

        But if you look at it, except for the war and corporate affiliations, I think she is to the left of Barack.  He does need an anchor within the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party.

        I nominate Howard Dean, btw. :)

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
