No president, nor other governmental body for that matter, should have unchecked power, period! But, if it EVER become necessary, given a choice I would prefer Hillary having that power over Dick “Halliburton” Cheney any day.

Yes, Hillary Clinton as a “Big Sister” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h3G-lMZxjo
Quote: “1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell’s prophetic nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. “1984” is still the great modern classic of Negative Utopia — a startingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words.

Oh, they do have their own very exclusive brand of “liberalism”, Manila Ryce. What else are you going to do, though - stay with the Bush GOP?
The lessons of the coming weeks will change all that anyway. And one more Katrina or Kansas twister and it will be over…....
Even the existing establishment has to realise that the financial system they have tacked together is now working in reverse and is unsustainable. The imperatives of climate change are both their greatest risk and their greatest chance - to change!

Um, yeah. I fail to see how Hillary with unchecked power is a good thing. If she wins, say goodbye to liberalism.
