#1 From his lips to God's ears.
Aside from all of the obvious things that are just plain wrong with her, imagine a president with kankles.

#3 "She can't win, and she's an incredibly polarizing figure"

"Programs! Getcher DNC Party programs! Can't tell one bitter, demoralizing loser from the others without your program!"

#5 Expect Geffen to have a bizarre suicide in a park near DC

#6 Ironically, the polarization that Geffen is talking about may be in the Democrat party. Rodham has been voting more to the center lately. For example she voted to confirm AG for AG. She also made a speech that Geffen may construe as being less than pure on the abortion issue.

#10 Looks like she just spotted Bill in the audience... with his arm around his date.

#11 When I read Geffen's statements last night (originally), I finally felt like someone really sees Hillary for what she is and will say so.

And .com, that picture is perfect.

#12 BH-Dead on. And she'll take it, just like she's taken all the others-proving she doesn't have the leadership, courage or morality it takes. She would be the poster child for self-martyring/masochistic wives. Still, I'd never underestimate how many people will let that slide. Despite all the ills that kind of behavior brings, there still seems to be a large chunk of the country who thinks infidelity is not a character flaw. With the seemingly large number that feel that way, she could overcome the "self-perpetuating-victim" label. I don't know if she could overcome the odds of being so polarizing a figure, though.

#13 mhw, that's the way I see it. Hillary watched very closely how Kerry ran his campaign and is changing her image to more of the middle. The polarization is indeed in the Democratic party. The democrats I know here in East Tennessee who voted for Bush would never vote for her as she was during Slick Willie's presidency. She has been taking caluclated steps to appear more religious, more conservative, and more supportive of the military. I just wonder how much of this his her own doing and how much is her advisors'. If she really is this politically astute she could be very formidable.

#15 Jules - I don't think it's masochism, it's just that she believes (and not without reason) that she needs Bill to get what she wants, namely, power. There was no way in hell she could have gotten elected as a Senator without him & his buddies, and she's hoping to cash in on his connections if she runs for President.

It's more of a "you owe me, you bastard....for putting up with your crap!" kinda thing, all the while putting up this "I did it all myself" front that the media just eats up.

#16 BH, slight correction: Looks like she just spotted Bill in the audience... with his arm around his her date.

#17 That's a possibility, RT, though all that makeup, and those clothes? I don't think so. Last time that looked like a possibility was the Watergate days...

Can you imagine 4 years of that strident voice? And that woman-hating husband in the White House again? I get chills just thinking about it.

#18 .com and Nada- you are 100% correct. Hillary said "It takes a village to raise a child"
Does she have what it takes to be the first U.S. President???? In case anyone is interested,
Mr. John Kerry will be at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, Mass this month for an open forum. Check the John F. Kennedy library web site for date and time! COME ONE COME ALL***

#20 # 19 Frank G.--Sorry, I DON'T SWALLOW*** I'll be on the slopes skiing (Vermont)---NOT at the John F. Kennedy library, but yes, I did receive an invite in the mail today...I am a honorary member of the John F. Kennedy library- I am fond of Caroline, as she sign's any books that I need for the various charities that I affiliate myself with.

#25 Frank, the lady tells you of her important connections including Caroline Kennedy, and all you can think of is if she swallows. ;o)

Actually, I've been thinking lately... there are things Hillary could do to improve her possibility of being elected, besides just pretending to be moderate:

Stop being an enabler for Mr. Codependent. Get her self respect back.

In short, divorce Bill.

#28 All that she's-s-s-s say-ing-g-g-g, is give Radical Islam, anti-Dubya-ism/Americanism, and Nuclear Terror a chance, espec to nuke Dubya, his Admin., and the the leadership of the GOP-Right, ala Cuba-Castro vs. the Kennedys and the JFK Assassination! THE USA IS AT WAR, A WAR FOR ITS IDENTITY AND ITS VERY EXISTENCE - WE HAVE ENEMIES BOTH WITHIN AND WITHOUT WHOM INTEND TO KILL AMERICA ONCE AND FOREVER. Its the ultimate regression as the Failed/Angry Left intends to win by bringing America down to their standards. Leftism = Rightism, Communism = Fascism, Socialism = Capitalism,... Successful America = Failed and Failing Russia-China and the other remnant of the Cold War Commie world, Intellectual PC Hillary = Truth-in-Everything straight arrow Betty Crocker, or prim and proper Queen Victoria. Dubya has to watch his six between now and the day he formally leaves office - Hillary and the power-mad Failed/Angry Left have more options than her just running as VPOTUS with Al "Everything is Beautiful Again" Gore in 2008. America and the GOP-Right have to be discredited, and ideally by their own Left-verified hand - the Clintons, the DemLibs and the Commies can NOT be blsmed or linked to anything!
