Bill Stumps for Hill

Posted on May 14, 2007

In this lengthy tribute to his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, former President Bill Clinton gives his personal pitch for why Americans should vote for her in 2008.  Pointing out that the U.S. needs to work on building friendships with other nations instead of isolating itself, he says Hillary’s “caring, working and delivering” put her ahead of the pack.

consumate liars, like all other politicians. But their records are clear, and appalling.

Wow, talk about sarcasm.  I notice these comments are all from males.  Some men will never be able to get past the “woman belongs at home” syndrome.  It may have been a little sappy, what campaign ad isn’t?  But it was nice to find out about her past public service career.  I wonder if Guiliani, or some of the other candidate hopefuls have such a background?  For me, this pretty much tipped the scale in Ms. Clinton’s favor.  I’ve been vacillating.  And let’s start showing some respect, she’s not Hillary (like a cheerleader) she’s Senator Clinton.

This is amends.  And frankly, all the antics aside, she is the best qualified.

Bill Clinton the Elmer Gantry of our time stumping for Hillarious. I’m surprised Bill doesn’t have Hill raising the dead in his speech - just give him time. “Caring” about who, “Working” for who, “Delivering” for who? I notice there’s no mention of the American people in Bill’s little testament. Why should there be, Hill is for Hill as Bill is and was for Bill. Hill’s a one worlder with no allegiance to anything or anyone, she’ll carry on the fine work of her husband - China’s best friend which owns us lock, stock and barrel.

Excellent comments from someone who knows this woman well.  Her commitment to work is just what this country needs.

As for the idiotic attempt at sophmore humor - grow up.

lip service; just like all the other candidates from both parties, no one wants to close the border, stop the war, stop the free trade,or give away the whole damn country, manufacturing is still moving out of the country, the national treasure is still being depleted, they are all in front of some -odium talking tough, we are just in for more of the same no matter who gets in office, must be an answer someplace, maybe move to fuji?

It’ll be interesting when Bill gets out on the cold fried chicken circuit, stumping for Hillary, to see how he answers questions such as:

1. In your opinion, Mr. President, how does Hillary compare with other performers on the national scene, such as, say,.........Monica?

2. What are the chances of a Clinton/Clinton ticket, and how will you handle the late-night comedians reaction to you being VICE-president?

3. There are rumor that you’ll be made Secretary of State if Hillary wins. Do you think you’ll be able to handle that AND administer the Intern Program, and, as Secretary, will you avoid wearing blue dresses to the office?

I’m sure you’ll be able to deal with all that, you old smooth-talker, and I wish you and the little missus the best of luck.
