Observing the work that has been done in the past few weeks to re-establish Senator Clinton's front runner status, I can't help but be amazed by the turnaround. You guys are riding the Big Mo right now, and I figured I might try to hitch my wagon to what looks to be a winning ticket.

That 'Heat in the Kitchen' strategy, laid out by Senator Clinton at the JJ Dinner in Iowa, seems to be in full effect now, and I want to join in the fun...because, as Bill recently said, politics is a contact sport, and I wouldn't want to pass up the chance to get in a few jabs among friends.

To that end, I've put together a short video for Team Clinton, that you are free to use in your campaign however you see fit. Join me on the other side won't you?

I should have brought virtual donuts, friend, or a six pack of Good Times burgers, but dire straits preclude such extravagance. I'll just drop the link and be done with it:

An ad Team Clinton might find useful during the Democratic primary season. An effort to help them find a way to finesse race and issues of upbringing subtly into their message while also hijacking the campaign slogans of all candidates, R or D, so that Senator Clinton appeals to every voter in America by default. It's a sound strategy, and I'll be expecting a check shortly.  

I got a feeling this Heat in the Kitchen style campaign is gonna be costly.


Your Pal,



Transcript Update, since it might be hard to hear:

Clinton: "So let's talk, let's chat. Let's start a dialogue, about your ideas and mine."

V/O: It's morning in America, and Hillary Clinton is Tested. Ready. Now.
Tomorrow begins today.
She will bring change we can believe in.
Straight talk from a Christian, and a leader.
She recognizes that there are two Americas.
Two paths in the future that we might choose.
One, is dark, angry, scary. Hers, bright and hopeful.

Clinton: "I know as the campaign goes on, that it's gonna get a little hotter out here. But that's fine with me, because, you know, as Harry Truman said 'If ya can't stand the heat, get outta the kitchen.' And I'll tell ya what, I feel really comfortable in the kitchen."

V/O: Hillary Clinton is doing more than just break the glass ceiling.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
