The lady has class and makes me chuckle

Two things stuck out in my mind last night as Hillary Clinton made her way from Larry King to Keith to the Obliterator (OK, so I don’t watch much WWE and I made that name up, so sue me).

Firstly, Hillary Clinton is one classy lady. It is amazing to see a woman and a mother who has put up with so much and taken so much flak, stand up so straight and proud for the country she loves. It is amazing to see her, with dignity and grace, go on Keith Olbermann’s Count-the-ways-I-love-Obama-down and face him and his dishonest questioning. And with a bit of humor! [The video of the interview is at the end of the story.]

Did anyone notice Keith’s convenient paraphrasing?

Like when he forgot to mention the second half of Obama’s quote — the bit where he destroyed the DNC’s campaign of the last two months by saying McCain would be a better President than Bush? Well, I sure as hell didn’t miss it and neither did Hillary.

But, unlike me, who would have directly called b.s. on loverboy Olbermann, Hillary did something better: she refuted Olbermann’s assumptions and then did what needed to be done — she cast McCain as not just the same as Bush, but worse. And I paraphase:

In fact [McCain's] statement about being willing to leave troops in Iraq for up to 100 years is something that I absolutely reject, that would be worse than President Bush…

Thank you Hillary, for knowing how to take the fight to ‘em! And with such poise. No one does it better.

Secondly, I caught a video today that I want to share. It’s Chelsea, you know, that beautiful, articulate, intelligent woman who was raised by Hillary Clinton.

I think children speak volumes about the character of the person who raised them, but that’s just me — I am just a hick with guns from Montana — a bit old-fashioned, if you will. Here is the vid of Chelsea, it makes me even more proud to be a Hillary supporter:

Happy PA primary, folks! Give all you can to our girl. Let her know we are proud of her and we appreciate all she has, is, and will do for this country.

The sense of humor bit? When Hillary said this to Olbermann:

…but I do believe in redemption Keith… I think it’s possible for anyone to see the error of their ways… …I am bringing people together as we speak…

Well, I still haven’t stopped chuckling.

Here’s the video of last night’s interview by Olbermann:

    I am not saying who I will vote for in the General Election. As a normally Straight ticket democratic voter, In my State of Florida, I have now re-registered as a non-affiliated voter. I will need the DNC to count my vote from the primary in order to come back home. The people that will now be effected the most will be the “down-ticket” candidates as I will consider not voting at all if Hillary Clinton is not the nominee. Barack Obama has not earned the respect of the voters. He’s become a dishonest, regular politcian in the worst way. The campaign has played people like a fiddle. I still don’t know what he organized in Chicago. But I keep reading about the inner city poverty, the homeless, the slums, the gun violence and child deaths from gunshots going to school. Seems like he didn’t do too much for his constituents, but did a hell of alot for himself and his family. I want a President that will work for the little guy. Yes, the less educated that does the grunt work, the women trying to feed their family and taking second jobs to make ends meet. The people trying to rise above their circumstances. Bill Clinton did that. History has been re-written by the Republicans to hurt the Democrats and Clinton, Its sad that Obama and his supporters have repeated and used the same shit. They vote against their own interests and are being led by the corporate media and the comfortable people with plenty of money and students, whose idealism is understandable, but have become drunk on their percieved new power to influence through the internet. They’re dug in. Just like in College, its become the big Friday night game, but in this big game, the so-called nerds are getting to carry the ball and they love it.

  • The Gringo’s Wife

    Gosh that was hard to sit through. I can’t stand to listen to Keith string two sentences together without losing my sexual appetite for a week. The Gringo has blocked MSNBC until Keith is gone.

    I spoke to an elderly woman and her son at the grocery store this afternoon. They expressed the same dismay about Obama that we have. They actually, interestinly, could not bring themselves to even say Barry’s name!

    I shared my feelings that as a veteran, and my plan to vote for McCain if need be as I respect and trust in a decorated war hero than Mr. Middle Finger. Does Obama realize that by flipping Hillary he essentially flipped all of her supports off as well? And he expects our support in November? I don’t think so.

  • DET

    Johnny- I think you’re a bit confused on what’s tearing the party apart. No Hillary supporter has taken any action to tear it apart. However, of course there is an emotional reaction to being more or less kicked out of the party. I for one take extreme offense to being titled a racist for my support for Hillary. The racism I saw as a child is what led me to my breakaway from my family’s Republican heritage, and I also know a fraud when I see it. How many months have we endured the name calling, race baiting, dirty politics of the Obama campaign and then being told if we don’t fall in line, find another party. If Obama is the nominee, he, you and others like you will be grossly sorry for the treatment of Clinton and her voters. This doesn’t even touch the fact of the unease of many Democrats of his qualifications and electability (or lack thereof).

    For an example of what I describe, which ain’t hard to find, see Jeff’s post above.

      Well put. We will let them know in the place where it counts.

    • http://hyper-educated-uppity-woman.blogspot.com Uppity

      “Tear it apart” means to them that we didn’t just hand the nomination to the Baby Jesus as an entitlement.

    • Strawberrybitch

      Thank you so much. Well put. I will not vote for a left wing version of Bush.

  • Johnny

    Oh my gosh! Olberman asks tough questions so he’s labeled as dishonest? Did we learn nothing from the repukes these last 7 years? Oh, that’s right, we’re all for a compliant media that gives the right a pass while piling it on dems and giving us fluff stories about Paris Hilton or Britney.

    Give me a break!

    Quit tearing our party apart! Hillary cannot win. Period. It’s time to figure out what we’re going to do against the right wing attack machine this fall.

    And I’m tired of all of these Hillary supporters whining about not voting for Obama if he gets the nomination. WTF is wrong with you? I support Obama (after Edwards dropped out) but would NEVER EVEN CONSIDER voting for McCain if Obama didn’t get the nod.

    • lifelong dem leaving party

      you’re tired of us. fine. we’re still not voting for obama.

    • beebop

      Good for you. Hurray.

      Thank God the polls close soon and the idiots that are here can crawl back to My Kos and HOPO and all of the other filth from whence they came and put their hands over their mouths with such HORROR that ANYONE is criticizing the obamasan.

      Newsflash Johnny: Never voting for OBAMA means Never voting for Obama. Writing in Hillary is the same as voting for McCain. NEVER voting for Obama.

      We are not whiney we are determined – we will not be bullied, maligned nor repeatedly lied to, by you, who think of yourselves as “Intelligensia”, but are too damn lazy to do any vetting of your precious Bama.

      We here know so much about him, I personally would raise holy hell with the Town Hall, if he, or anyone like him, became my rubbish man. He is a liar, sneak, untrustworthy, person, who is knee deep in fraud, money laundering, and promises to those who caused this financial crises.

      Obama, has no character, and is morally and ethcally bankrupt. Those are not whines – Those are FACTS!

      And Johnny you tell your fellow Bot who calls himself “Jeff”, we are not lower class, underpaid working for minimum wage white people. I have a PhD and you?

      Jeff and his ilk will be gone when the polls close. He’s just trying to earn his obamaportion with his obamaspam feeding from the obamatrough … and now that the grain and oil supplies are toughening up, we should be more charitable.

      The satisfaction will be that obamasan is going to be licking his wounds in Indiana and Hillary will be thanking her supporters in Pennsylvania.

      That Obama. Such a guy.

  • Mary

    Question: “Will you support the Democratic nominee?”

    Hillary: “Yes, I will do everything I can to get a Democrat in the White House”

    Michelle Obama: “I’d have to think about it”

  • Amanda

    I’m sorry, but I don’t have to “fall in line” with party loyalty, since party leaders are not loyal to their own base. I will not vote for Obama in November, have said so before.
    @ jimbo, Coward Dean (copyright uppity woman :) ) said that once we have a nominee FL and MI will be seated in Denver. Excuse me, but what is the point of seating them, if their vote is not respected? Especially in Fl? Anyway, no need to beat a dead horse :( .

    • Jeff

      “I’m sorry, but I don’t have to “fall in line” with party loyalty, since party leaders are not loyal to their own base.”

      Right, just loyal to their African-American base, white intellectual base, young voting base. Sorry they haven’t been loyal to the white, lower-income, gun-owning, highly religious set that voted for GWB the last two elections.

      • beebop

        WOW … I am sure that the effete, selective pandering will work out really really well in November. Your candidate Coward Dean knows from painful first hand experience what a losing proposition that is … no wonder you loved Coward … you have so much in common with him … including no common touch.

        • Jeff

          “you have so much in common with him … including no common touch.”

          I don’t profess to, either. I’m not a politician.

          However, I am from Kentucky, for what it’s worth, and know a bit about white, lower-income, socially conservative folks. And I know they’ve been voting Republican for a long, long time now. I like to call them my relatives.

    If MI and FL are not brought into the national picture immediately and their votes counted, and if Obama is the Democratic nominee, I will not vote for president in November. If MI and FL are returned to the national picture immediately and their votes counted, then I will vote for the Democratic nominee whomever it is. Your move, Dean.

    Can the Democratic nominee win the presidency in November without Michigan and Florida? That’s what we are facing if Michigan and Florida aren’t included. So Obama won’t win not matter what. Your move, Dean.

  • pm317

    Clinton has run her campaign with dignity and grace. OTH, he has run a vile campaign all the time talking about some new politics — that is the heights of deception. I do feel angry that this impostor who can not assemble a winning coalition in the primary (no big state wins) and is seen more and more as a risk for GE, can become the nominee on a technicality. I feel angry that he blocked the count/revote in FL and MI. Right now, I have no interest in being faithful to the party when they are not loyal to their base. We could easily have had both of them — her now and him in 2016. But the prince could not wait longer — the sense of arrogance and entitlement is enough to reject him, especially when he does not have any other redeeming qualities. No, I won’t vote for him in November. He will lose if he is the nominee and I hope, we will never see him again on the political scene.

    Vote for Obama in the GE? No thanks. I will not reward him for running such a vicious campaign. McCain will win if he runs against Obama. Barack is too frail to handle a real campaign where the media’s not in the tank for him. McCain will be a one term president and I will vote for Hillary in 2012. I’m also dropping out of the Democratic Party to become an Independant. Dean, Brazille, and Pelosi have been a disgrace. I’m urging all Dems to switch to Indy.

    I am really tired of hearing Obama and his hope, he will bring a new vision to DC. We heard that before with Reagan and Bush and look what it got us. That Bush vision has oil at $119.69 at this very moment and the market is down 135 points. And a war that won’t end. How’s that hope working out for everyone?

  • beebop

    From FOX:

    WASHINGTON — One of President Nixon’s daughters, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, apparently supports a Democrat in this year’s presidential contest — Barack Obama.

    Eisenhower has contributed the maximum amount allowed during the primary season to Obama’s campaign: $2,300. Federal Election Commission records show she gave Obama’s campaign $1,000 on Feb. 4, another $1,000 on Feb. 18 and $300 on March 5.

    One of her father’s staunchest defenders during the Watergate scandal, she married the grandson of another Republican president, David Eisenhower, just before her father took office.

    Since her father’s resignation, she has written several books and is now co-chair of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Birthplace Foundation.

    So Julie Eisenhower is smart enough to see that by giving money to Barack Obama helps the Republicans in November … Her father would be proud.

      Please explain how having a high-profile Republican legacy donating money and support to Barack Obama, instead of the GOP standard-bearer John McCain, “helps the Republicans in November”.

      You’ve missed the point completely.

        She knows Obama would be easier for McCain to beat– that’s why she donated to his cmpaign.

      • beebop

        If you think that Julie Eisenhower is actually going to vote for Barack Obama in the general election, let me tell you that your brain has been totally eaten away by whatever it is that the obamazoids are feeding you. She is her father’s daughter. She is no more going to support a Democrat that she is going to endorse Hamas. She’ll leave that to Carter.

          You’re misreading history. Eisenhower was, by today’s standards, a moderate Democrat. He certainly wouldn’t fit in today’s GOP. Obama is a natural fit for Julie Eisenhower.

            I have a very good friend who went to school with Julie. I just got an email assuring me that just like lots of people give money to, say, Nader, Julie is definitely NOT voting for a Democrat. Sorry to burst your unity pony pinata.

              Forgive me for not taking this statement as evidence of anything. However, Julie’s donations to and support of Obama, certainly are.

            Julie just married into the Eisenhower name, but she was born and bred a Nixon (she really has her dad’s nose), and Nixon was no moderate Democrat.

          I think both McCain and Obama have the impimatur of the monied elite and the right wing. That is why Julie might be behind Obama. That way there are two right wing horses in the race. Tails I win, heads you lose. Obama ain’t no liberal.

      • street_parade

        The point is to put money in BO’s coffers so that he can ‘win’ the Dem nomination. Thereby delivering a fatally flawed and weak Dem nominee to be led to the slaughter in November.

      I wish you would take that question over to HuffPo and DailyObama et al. My sense is that most Obama supporters don’t feel like you do.

      Part of the problem is that Obama and his campaign and his supporters have behaved in such vile ways. It’s kind of like asking a battered woman of she’ll take back her batterer.

        I like your reply … I will have to use that one in future “discussions”.

    • beebop

      My honest answer is no, he lost me when he called Bill Clinton a racist. That was it. End of discussion. I wasn’t too keen on the way Gerri Ferraro was treated, but Bill Clinton? Way out of line. You don’t piss on the legacy of the Bill Clinton and tell us it’s just raining a little.

      Go Hillary! We need you so that Democrats can continue to vote for a Democratic candidate!

      • Jeff

        That never happened.

        • beebop

          have it your way. I’m not going to argue with you. We know what Bill said. We know what he meant. For the campaign to spin it to turn out the AA vote in SC was smart for the short term but fool hardy long term.

          Bill Clinton doesn’t have to defend his record to Barry Obama.

            See, and already you’ve backtracked. There is a world of difference between “Barack Obama called Bill Clinton a racist”, and “the Obama campaign was critical of Clinton’s remarks about Jesse Jackson also winning S.C.”.

            There is a serious extrapolation problem among many of the posters here.

          Barack Obama never said that in public, but his campaign and his surrogates said it with Obama’s blessings. It’s not like you can take the faux outrage any other way (unless we are supposed to think that being compared to Jesse Jackson is a bad thing).

        • Hillary is the Best

          • Rob Gard

            And then there is the little detail involving Obama’s campaign strategy memo that advanced the strategy of looking for some statement of Bill or Hillary that could be twisted into allegations of racism, and peel off African-American support, acknowledging that this would be the only way that Senator Obama could take the “AA” vote.

                He’s too cowardly to say that to any Obama supporters who refuse to vote for Clinton under any circumstances.

                Nor does he have the courage to admit that any candidate who disses Clinton but praises Reagan and Bush I is probably not a true Democrat anyway.

                Jeez, the Obamanauts are as simple-minded as the Bush wingnuts.

        • norrismorris

          Bill Clinon has been dissed continually by Obama surrogates,bloggers,& campaigners to a point where it is obvious they wish to undermine his legacy as it plays into their scheme of capturing super delegates and insuring the party’s total takeover by Deaniacs and leftist netroot extremists.

          The party is being sold to black voters pure and simple, and in order to forget what Clinton has accomplished with regard to black advancement and support on all levels, the best way Obama can nullify Clinton is to: call him a racist. to insist that he was not a good president and accomplished little.

          These people are ruthless, they are creeps, and they will ruin the party.

          Trashing the Clinton’s seems to be the way Obama and Axelrod have chosen as his path to the presidency as it allows them to minimize what Clinton has and does that is positive.

          In demonizing Bill they hope to remove any doubts and second thoughts Clinton supporters will have going into the general.

          What a bunch of losers. I have heard black surrogates on TV trashing Clinton as an irrelevant and racist person, and an unimportant president.

          Their hatred is palpable. And this kind of desperate and irresponsible talk pulls racism up a notch every time one of these [usually black] surrogates gets on TV.

          This is taking black guilt about their own white racist behavior into the conversation, as they surely have shown that they hate “typical” whites.

          Bill Clinton will remain an important leader and will transcend this kind
          of racist bigotry and trashtalk.It will be seen as the opportunistic cannabilism Obama needs in order to appear the “true transformer” of the Democratic Party.

          No one admires this kind of behavior.

          • Mary

            Bravo and well said, norrismorris!

            REAL Democrats understand what Obama has done, and why he did it, and why he was wrong to do so.

    • http://noquarterusa.net/ SusanUnPC

      One of the most fascinating parts of a new poll today on Pennsylvanian Democrats was that 32% of them say that they could NOT vote for Obama.

      First, let me say that your comment is exceptional in our experience: Usually, we are attacked for not supporting Obama. But your comment is respectful and dignified, and I’m grateful.

      But we are all very, very worried about Obama — that not only are his qualifications rather scant but also that he provides such easy fodder for the Republicans in a general election. McCain would be able to devastate him on national security issues alone. Not good.

      I think it is important that we all keep electability in mind as a motivating force in our support for candidates. We need to be realistic.

      • Jeff

        “First, let me say that your comment is exceptional in our experience: Usually, we are attacked for not supporting Obama. But your comment is respectful and dignified, and I’m grateful.”

        I appreciate your restrained, thoughtful, complimentary response, Susan. As always.

        “I think it is important that we all keep electability in mind as a motivating force in our support for candidates. We need to be realistic.”

        There are certainly reasons to be nervous for either candidate going up against McCain. I think that Hillary would be very vulnerable against him b/c of the sniper story. I think Obama is vulnerable against him for the reasons stated. That said, I just prefer his freshness over her experience. In the general, I will be voting for the Democrat, regardless of who it is.

        That said, Susan’s response is a far cry from saying “I will never vote for Obama”, and I appreciate that.

        • Rob Gard

          Jeff:

          McCain has a problem of his own in making correct perceptions and analysis of danger, thinking that walking through a marketplace in Iraq with a contingent of special forces, full body armor, Apache gunships criss-crossing the sky overhead, is like a walk in the park on a sunny afternoon. It would be very dangerous for McCain to think that he could effectively use the “Bosnia” issue, when he can’t even distinguish between the combatants in Iraq.

          • Jeff

            “It would be very dangerous for McCain to think that he could effectively use the “Bosnia” issue, when he can’t even distinguish between the combatants in Iraq.”

            That’s wishful thinking. A decorated war hero can easily make hay of against a candidate who fabricated a story about being shot at it in a combat zone. I’m not saying it’s fair, or that the Shiite/Sunni issue isn’t strong against McCain. I’m simply disagreeing that it will at all be “dangerous for McCain to use the sniper story.

            • beebop

              So just imagine what he can do with a guy who associates with a group of people who brought terror right here to the streets of America?

                  I find your intentional stupidity annoying.

                  President Clinton commuted the sentences of two people who had served their time — almost all of it. Senator Clinton was not part of the decision making process.

                  If you can find any links or information that they have socialized together or that the Weather Underground has made a donation to her campaign, please enlighten me.

                  Bill Ayers’ actions resulted in the deaths of three people. He and his wife would have been tried for their crimes if the FBI hadn’t screwed up.

                  Bill Ayers is totally unrepentent. Actually, he regrets not having done MORE, unlike those whose sentences were commuted.

                  These individuals’ sentences were commuted.

            Just as you do, I will “dare” to conjecture whatever makes sense to me. A person who refuses to vote for the most progressive Democratic candidate in a generation isn’t, to my mind, a Democrat. I’m speaking of course of how people choose to vote in the general election.

    • sister of ye

      A few months back, I would have easily said yes. Now I can say, only because I distrust John McCain even more, and I’ll have to hold my nose while doing it.

      I believe he’ll sell out Dems on reproductive choice and gay rights, and can’t be relied on to pick judges who will support those ideas, given what a swell, smart guy he thought Roberts was. I doubt he knows more about the economy than W – though like W he knows how to advance his own interest, in W’s case thru Poppy’s friends, in Obama’s his Chicago cronies.

      So it comes down to figuring he’s less likely than crazy John McCain to charge us into still more war. Pretty sad when that’s what it comes down to.

    • The Gringo’s Wife

      Sorry Jeff. I can’t support Obama. He is the worst thing to happen to this country after GW.

    • Nellie

      No Jeff

      We cannot unite for several reasons.

      First and most important to me is Character. Without that a discussion of POLICY is a moot point because it has no firm foundation or base.

      Aristotle (384–322 BC) believed that character helped explain a person’s past actions and could also predict future behaviour. Character helps identify who someone really is on the inside. Character is the yardstick by which people can identify whether someone is trustworthy or just a Charlatan.

      The attributes of Character, in their order of ranking, are: integrity, cooperativeness, fairness, self-discipline, honesty, spiritual respect, respectfulness, employee loyalty, humour, passion, competency, organisation loyalty, compassion, courage, selflessness, wisdom, and humility.

      In these attributes Obama is sorely lacking.

      He is first and foremost a serial and pathologigical liar. Here is a short list of some of his lies:

      • Nellie

        Whoops here is the list:

        http://www.stop-obama.org/?page_id=24

        How can you trust or rely on anyone who lies constantly, does not accept responsibility for his past actions or associations.

        Further as far a spolicy goes – his web changes constantly as he copies from either Hillary or John Edwards.

        Obama is the worst Charlatan since Huey Long – all blah blah blah – no substance or deeds to back him up.

        Then there is his blatant racism and mysogyny – and the list just goes on, and on, and on.
