We’re not talking lingerie here....Hillary is up for re-election to her U.S. Senate seat in 2012. If Barack Obama loses to John McCain in November, and that is a distinct possibility, Hillary Clinton and her minions will bear some of the responsibility. While she has had every right to wage a vigorous campaign against Senator Obama, and give as good as she gets along the way, she has behaved much like a rabid Republican in a general election, and in doing so, has betrayed the Democratic values that she claims to espouse. Kind of like Joe Lieberman with lip gloss and sagging knee-highs. (BTW - I wrote this prior to listening to K.O.'s Special Comment)
Not to mention her enduring support of the Bush/Cheney policy of "all war – all the time." Hillary, the consummate politician, has done what’s best for Hillary’s interests, rather than that of the American people, or even her own Democratic Party. She has taken Clintonian Triangulation to a new high. At this point, it is painfully evident that she would do, or say, just about anything to get the nomination. When she recruits hacks like Geraldine Ferraro out of the political recycle bin to play the race card, she lowers herself to the standards of notable GOP hatchet men like Lee Atwater and Karl Rove. When she called John McCain more qualified to be Commander-in-Chief than Senator Obama, she was giving aid and comfort to the enemy; a truly traitorous offense. Someday soon, Hillary will be inducted into the Democratic Hall of Shame along with turncoats Joe Lieberman and Zell Miller.
There is no time like the present to begin a grass-roots campaign to mount a vigorous primary challenge to Hillary Clinton for the 2012 senatorial election. While we’re at it, Lieberman needs to be "retired" as well. Although, if Hillary does enough damage, Lieberman may find himself in a McCain cabinet, in which case the Republican governor of Connecticut will be sure to appoint Nancy Johnson as his replacement. Let’s start the drumbeat for dumping Hillary in 2012. Maybe if it gets loud enough, she will re-consider her present strategy and tone down the nastiness against Senator Obama. After all, Hillary always does what is best for Hillary.
