Goodbye And Good Luck Hillary!


For the first time in 30 years neither Bill nor Hillary Clinton is on a public payroll somewhere. He was Governor then President, then she was Senator and Secretary of State. He was the Attorney General of Arkansas for a while too.

Ron Fournier:

What I Learned Covering Hillary Clinton

I stopped betting against Hillary Rodham Clinton 23 years ago when I watched her crush one man’s ambitions to preserve her husband’s career.

Summoned to a Capitol rotunda news conference by Tom McRae, an earnest Democrat challenging then-Gov. Bill Clinton for re-election, I heard the click, clack, click of the first lady’s low-heeled shoes approach from a hidden marble hallway.

“Tom!” the first lady of Arkansas shouted. “I think we oughta get the record straight!”

Waving a sheaf of papers, Hillary Clinton undercut McRae’s criticism of the Clinton administration by pointing to his past praise of the governor. It was a brutal sandbagging.

“Many of the reports you issued not only praise the governor on his environmental record,” she said, “but his education and his economic record!”

McRae’s primary campaign was toast. Bill Clinton was one step closer to the White House.

Wait . . . what?

What a low-down dirty move, confronting a candidate with his own words! What a horrible thing for the wife of a popular incumbent to do!

Seriously, I don’t know what Hillary plans to do next but I wish the best for her and Bill. They’ve earned a break. Maybe Chelsea will give them a couple grandkids to play with.

    Yea, that’s why they hate her: she’s smarter than they are and effective. How dare she?

    Thank you for the decades of public service Hillary. Now get some sleep, read some fiction, and have some laughs. You’ve earned it and then some.

      Gotta agree.

      Her ratings might decline slightly if she got back into politics, but not as much as people seem to think. You have to remember Bill left office with some pretty high approval ratings, in spite of impeachment and controversy, and Hillary is probably ten times the politician he is.

      Hillary can deliver. People may not like what she’s delivering, but she always does it. Unlike Obama or even Bush who kind of waffle around and snicker a lot and call it presidenting.

      • Never been a fan but think she made a serious mistake playing third fiddle to Obummer. Would say it could be hard to rid oneself of his stink afterward, except that might be racist……so for the record I won’t say it.

    May not be on an “active duty” federal payroll, but aren’t their “retirements” quite lucrative ? Not that I’m complaining about it, my husband won the retirement lottery in ’92 and keeps us out of poverty just for breathing. (after 30 years active duty USMC)

    Good luck to Hillary in her new chapter of life. May she shake the dust of Obama’s admin from her shoes.

  7. votermom says:

  8. I love Hillary, but I’m fatigued by all of the press and their false encomiums. Blech……where were they when it mattered???????

  9. God Bless and thank you Hillary. I never thought she was superwoman- but I thought then and still think now- she was the best candidate in 08 by light years. There really is no way to count the cost of what the damn bots did to this country.
    And it is now official.
    There are NO adults now in this administration.

      LOL! That’s really awful, but it’s true! Since when have confirmation hearings been cordial and respectful?? Since when is it against the rules to criticize the President??

      Heck, in US history we have congresscritters that actually got into fist fights. We had duels, shootings, and assaults. For crying out loud, some of our presidents were actually killed! Today Dems act as if simply asking a question is racist, rude, and abusive.

    • DeniseVB says:

      When did Code Pink change from anti-war to dancing vaginas ? Also missing in action these days, the Raging Grannies and Billionaires for Bush. Great street theater at the peace marches I attended, their voices would also be helpful now 😀

        Everyone’s having a snooze fest since his greatness was installed, cause all is well with the world now, haven’t you heard?

    I should probably not be laughing my patootie off at this, but I am

    • myiq2xu says:

      That’s some sick shit.

        The most hilarious part is not Ace but the actual Couric quote:

        I was only 30, I could not figure out how to extricate myself from it.”

        • First there’s a quasi-vocal rending of the Star Mangled Banner and now a quasi-news report of Larry King’s romantic imaginations. Where is the peace? Where is the justice? Where is the emesis basin?

      LMAO, Oh my goodness!

      “So I wound up mounting him, and as I was doing so, he barked out, ‘Go vagina, you’re live,’ like my ladynethers were some housewife from Duluth or something,” she said.

      OMG. That explains a lot. No wonder it was easy to get her to edit and manipulate and otherwise do a gotcha interview with Palin.

  12. Awww. Barney Bush has passed. He was about the only good thing in that administration.–politics.html

    The bush family must be devastated. He was so loved. 🙂

    Fun twitter hashtag NOT trending…… that’s 5 words!

    Secretary of State John Kerry says comment to Boston Globe was ‘overly casual’; says Obama didn’t formerly offer him job until after Susan Rice withdrew – @mitchellreports

    Kerry backtrack Rice comment

  17. HELENK says:

    wonder if there will be a change now that this guy is leaving.
    he just signed a long term contract 6 months ago

  18. Wondering if Hillary needs to rest up and be ready to climb right back into the saddle when backtrack backtrack’s Hagel’s nomination next week?
    Oh, that’s right. She’s not qualified to join his next cabinet.

    Some movies are just fun to watch. Enjoying Kung Fu Panda right now.

    just because we need a smile

      Proof that the human race has lost it’s fricken mind! We have alpacas all over up here. People got into them because the government, in their wisdom, decided that if people shaved these animals to look like mutant poodles, they could get a tax deduction and call themselves alpaca farmers. If you’re upper middle class, doctor, lawyer, it’s worth your while to put a couple alpacas in the yard and call yourself a farmer. Drives me nuts, we’re stuck with the hummer and alpaca tax deductions.
