To paraphrase the leader in The Economist regarding his proposed Iraq strategy, his policy amounts to little more than pulling out as fast as possible, call a peace conference with Syria and Iran, and keep his fingers crossed.


That sounds a lot more complicated that Bush's plan for the war, unfortunately!

Too bad there is so much animosity towards her. What a true Democrat (in my opinion) would want is for Barack to jump on as her VP, gain necessary experience for 8 years and then ride that to his own 8 year term. Then Dems get a "ready" presidential candidate with an actual plan, not just a message of hope, into the race, the great orator and personable BO gains valuable experience and then smashes the GOP nominee 8 years down the road. 16 years of Dems in the White House? A true Dem would want that, but everyone gets hung up on her persona and forgets that her plan generally blows BO out of the water.

Besides being a carpetbagger, what has Hilary done that is so bad again?

(I am not voting for her, I just would like to know what it is that she has done that makes the right hate her so much.)

Being associated with Bill Clinton. I love the Clintons but she will get ripped apart by the Republicans if she gets the nomination. Obama has been nice to her so far. I don't think the GOP will do the same for her.

There's no doubt that the right thoroughly despices her. I don't think it's possible for her to be any more vetted. There's some extremely strange things going on with her and the right when she has a private meeting with Richard (Mellon) Scaithe too. Her biggest attacker and the man that personally financed investigations to try to dig up dirt is "inviting" her for sit downs, and she's attending and saying positive things after words?

I'm just so bitter that research dollars are hard to come by these days that I'm thinking of going to Mass tonight but my gun club is having a meeting at the same time. And I signed a mortgage a few years ago but now I don't think I can afford it, what with my DirecTV and cell phone bills to pay, so when can I expect my bailout?

Just got back from lunch, and all of the food was around $1 more. That really sucks. Can't keep lunch under $5 anymore.

Not sure about the Republicans, but a lot of people don't like the fact that she made a promise not to campaign in Michigan or Florida much like the rest of the Democrats, and then reneged and spent a good amount of time there, and now wants those states to count.

There's also the fact that if she wins, then a Bush or Clinton will have been in the white house for 30 consecutive years.

Don't you mean 24 years? GHWB was only president from 1989-1993. Or does being VP count now as being in the White House?
