Hillary: Loved, despised, admired, feared

Register
Mar 26, 2013

Excerpt: No matter what Barack Obama does, he cannot escape the shadow of his former political opponent.

Hillary Clinton, back from her global travels visiting places and peoples hardly heard of on this continent, is stealing the spotlight without even touching the stage.

President Obama visits the Middle East, makes history as he speaks war to Syria and Iran, and peace to Israelis and Palestinians, and the talk back home circles The Big Question: Will Hillary run?

The former first lady, the former senator and now the former secretary of state is everywhere — and nowhere to be seen. Sent away by this president upon his unlikely victory in 2008 against the Clinton machine and the inevitable first woman president, Hillary is back.

Few people — and far fewer women — have attracted so much attention as Hillary Clinton. She carries the unique burden of being something to everyone: Loved, despised, admired, feared, a role model, a terrifying omen, politician, mother, wife, nemesis, scold, muse. She is a conundrum of one.

And she is running for president. Isn’t she?

Hmm! Have not seen him, did he say he was leaving?

4shizzle

No, just wondered.

He's missed a lot of opportunites to rant and rave and trip over himself.

Never fear, goofy is here!

4shizzle

4 sure.

I hope she does run, despite her saying she wasn't going to. She is more qualified than Obama and she would make a great President.

Her time has finally come.

deertracker

I like Hillary but what makes her more qualified than Obama? I don't buy the "it's her time" noise. The presidency does not work that way!

Hillary had some pretty good ideas during her campaign when running against Obama. That is what I meant by "her time". During the campaigning I really think she had a good shot at getting the nominatation but Obama got it for reasons that were more geared for defeating McCain.

This time around she could very well defeat whomever the Republicans but up.

deertracker

Newsflash to all Obama haters: He was elected to serve four more years and there is nothing you can do about it. He can't run again so some are putting forth the next best qualified candidate and/or woman.

(next best qualified candidate and/or woman)

Oxymoron?

Yes Obie was elected by all the Dems that voted 5 or 6 times in da hood.
Hillbillary gets elected it'll be like version "Obie II".

goofus

Ahh more of the great white guilt and America's belief that everyone should get a second chance.

KnuckleDragger

She said she isn't going to seek the Presidency, so what woman are we talking about? Nancy Pelosi? Diane Feinstein. LMAO.

@deertracker....Obama has nothing to lose this time around, making him possibly the most dangerous man in Washington. The RP should keep that in mind when dealing with him during any negotiations on anything they do for the next four years.

deertracker

Agreed!

I lost respect for her years ago when she did nothing but stand by Bill through all his affairs. Poor example to women and young girls.

4shizzle gets all his facts from the huffington post.

4shizzle

Not true.
Your boy, contango, quotes Huff Post

goofus

She had the most important job of maintaing the testicle lockbox and heading off any more Monica Lewinskys from popping up from under Bill's desk in the oval orfice.

meowmix

Sure, and the fact that she's been the best Secretary of State this nation had in decades means nothing. There ya go goofus, can't think of anything or with anything other than genitals eh?

goofus

Ya think, I see you get your news from the lamestream media, try a different country's news service to find out about the real secretary of state.

4shizzle

"try a different country's news service" -like Fox?

goofus

Any UK paper like the Gaurdian or the American Pravda

4shizzle
