Any One Who Votes for Clinton in the Primaries is Rolling the Dice

I have never seen such craziness.

Not, anyway, since John Kerry was flirting with John McCain as a potential running mate in 2004.

To Charlie Rose, Bill Clinton describes Sen. Barack Obama as a callow, highly ambitious political prodigy who is asking voters to "roll the dice" and elect him president. Clinton should know - that's a fair description of himself when he first sought the presidency in 1992.

And then,Hillary says Obama hasn't done the 'hard work' she has. That can only remind all of us that HRC sounds more and more like GWB everyday.

Finally, in Orangeburg (SC) on Monday, Bill Clinton said that the first thing wife Hillary will do when she reaches the White House is
to dispatch him and his predecessor, President George H.W. Bush, on an around-the-world mission to repair the damage done to America's reputation by the current president - Bush's son, George W. Bush.
Well, the first thing she intends to do, because you can do this without passing a bill, the first thing she intends to do is to send me and former President Bush and a number of other people around the world to tell them that America is open for business and cooperation again.
Well, any one who would believe this crap, would also be taken by surprise to hear that Lieberman would endorse McCain.

Sure enough, Daddy Bush's (President #41) office came out in the same news cycle with an adamant denial. Former President Bush’s chief of staff Jean Becker said that he
wholeheartedly supports the President of the United States, including his foreign policy. He has never discussed an ‘around-the-world-mission’ with either former President Bill Clinton or Sen. Clinton, nor does he think such a mission is warranted since he is proud of the role America continues to play around the world as the beacon of hope for freedom and democracy.

President Bush is excited about several of the excellent Republican candidates running for president, and looks forward to discussing their candidacy once the Republican nominee is determined.
Of course, Clinton wasn't serious. Bill 'Big Dog' Clinton is still the callow youth. He'll say anything, tell any story to grab the spotlight for entertainment. He likes to have a good time as a loose cannon. His Presidency was too boring a job to keep him interested. Hillary's presidency will be likewise a drag on him. I don't know if Hillary is presidential, but I think it's too bad that we can't entertain her as POTUS without having to entertain her spouse as well.

Speaking as someone who voted to put the Clintons in the White House for eight years, I have to say that the pair of them are so over.


  1. You're absolutely right, they are so OVER. They are also clumsy, transparently pandering, and running a dirty campaign out of Karl Rove's playbook. Cocaine, cocaine AFTER her apology to Obama? Enough said.

  2. Hear, hear, Vigilante. Well said.

  3. I certainly agree with you about Bill. He's "so over."

    Now, who was Kerry's running mate? Dan Quayle? No. He was Bush the First's VP..... Miller? Nope... he was Goldwater's running mate.

    Perhaps if Kerry had convinced McCain to run he would actually be President today.

  4. Good point, Wizard-FKAP. Kerry was willing to say anything, do anything and grab anyone in order to win. Leave no flip un-flopped. Leave no pan left un-pandered. I'm sure McCain served up the deal-breaker on this one. If he hadn't, this would have been a match made in hell. Bi-partisan love is unnatural love. In these days.

  5. Another point on Clinton's 'callowness'. A mature politician would have understood that his recent feckless statement that he was against the invasion of Iraq at its outset, (before he zipped his lips for four years) would have rung hollow; just a phony attempt to shore up wifey's historical lapse in 2002-3. This guy is a showboat out for his own amusement.

  6. How about a match made in Heaven? Minutes ago, I heard JRE from Ames on C-Span! What a guy! I'd sure be most enthusiastic about and Edwards-Obama ticket!

  7. I allmost fell out of my chair when I heard her "hard work" comment. That couldn't have been an accident. What was she thinking?

    I'm with you Vig, after Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Bush, I can't bear the thought of another Clinton, they all need to go.

  8. Hillary seemed just a few weeks ago to have the nomination in the bag and her machine in South Carolina was unstoppable. Since the Oprah visit though a huge tide seems to have turned and I will tell you the cocaine trick on Obama has hugely backfired with the African-Americans I work around. Just about all were in the Hillary camp and now either will not vote for her or have said that they are undecided.
    Bill's statement of Daddy Bush working for a president Hillary to repair the damage is spoiled brat has done was a bizarre rookie FUBAR.

  9. I wouldn't say they are "so over." True, Bill has been acting kind of weird lately, but the Clinton political machine is savvy and well-funded.

    Can you honestly say you don't think Hillary is still the front-runner for the Democratic nomination? I think she is -- anything short of a win for Hillary in Iowa will be considered a significant "upset."

  10. According to the most recent poll (as of yesterday anyway) Edwards has a narrow lead in Iowa.

    Hillary is the worst of the Dem frontrunners, because it's so hard to tell the difference between her and the Republicans.
