Alan S

For the first time in my life I feel sorry for her. She's being beaten by a very shallow PR man.


What a complete fraud this women is. She's throwing her toys out of the pram because she's losing.

Patrick Pepper

She's being beaten by a very shallow PR man? That's too funny, Alan S. You mean any one of the hopeless, just-don't-get-it spin-bots advising Hillary headlong towards defeat, surely? (And that includes the great woman herself, every time she practises in front of the mirror).

Chief Spin-Bot: "Okay, Hill, we've just looked up Chapter 37 of the Campaign Manual - "What To Do When Things Start To Look Pretty Desperate" - and it says it's time to show your feminine side, go for the sympathy vote and pretend to choke a little. But don't overdo it, now! Press the autopilot button after a minute or so and churn out those programmed soundbites about being ready on Day One! We wouldn't want anyone to think you're being spontaneous, would we?"

All quite hilarious and if you really fell for that, Alan, then it's you I feel sorry for.

That video just about sums up why shes losing ground. This is a woman who whilst every aspect of her marriage was being dissected by the press during the Lewinsky affair showed no discernable emotion. She makes our own Maggie Thatcher seem like an over sensitive emotional wreck. You could almost peel her face off and not be surprised to find a robot under it. I dont know how many PR lessons she's had but the more i see her on television the more i think she's suited to selling cleaning products out of a hollywood television studio.


She really can't make up her mind who she is, can she...She'll have plenty of time after Obamam beats her.

So what if Hillary was emotional? At least she’s honest and direct and passionate, not cold and phony like the rest of the people running for President. She has my support.
What about Obama’s emotional disdain for others, especially fellow Democrats? Have any of you noticed how far his nose is up in the air? Let’s look at that emotionality too.
He never listened to anyone while he’s been a senator here in Illinois and didn’t do anything! Nada! Frankly, I won’t vote for Obama - no experience - all talk, all flash. Listen to the debates — he has no Middle East or immigration policy. And no clear answers for keeping jobs in our country, and turning our economy and healthcare around.
The last nail in his political coffin for me? He needed help from a big-mouthed rich black woman (Oprah) to get where he’s at. I wonder if she would have helped anyone who was white? We have to ask these questions.Let’s look at that too.
Go HIllary. Go Girl!




fake fake fake! she must be in trouble to try this political gamble which she has rehersed all day.


I think that men are against Hillary because they feel some kind of primitive, collective unconscious guilt for her because of what her husband did to her in the oval office with Lewinsky. They thus turn this unconscious male "cheating" guilt into a reaction formation and thus wind up attacking her. Attacking her because they actually want to hide their guilt for what "they" have done to her or desire to do to other women (basically the male necesity/urge to "spread their seed" no matter who they hurt in the process). So, men turn their guilt for her to a hatred. How the men treat her on the panel in the debates is a disgrace! Shame on those other candidates who talk disrespectful to a woman! She is a strong woman and passionate and can get the job done and a weak man cannot respect such a strong woman because they feel threatened by her. Simple as that. It shocks me that a woman would turn against her and vote for a male candidate who basically has nothing on her. It shocks me to see that some woman do not support her and would rather a man in the office. Let's have a woman in charge and change the course of history! Women have been suppressed throughout the years, so much so, that people don't even realize it. Let's stop being the "second" sex and begin a historical change for women and let's have more role models for young women!!


Hillary Clinton is the only Democrat running that has the experience and the fortitude to lead this nation from day one.

She's not an inexperience 2 year Senator that wants to play at the Presidency nor is she a shyster lawyer suing everyone and anyone for millions only to keep the majority for himself.

For quite some time many for some unknown irrational reasons claims that she is cold and heartless but when she displays in public a side of herself that others have only seen in private, that she is a human being that genuinely cares about the people of this country, she is damned for it.

So she's to be damned when she is perceived as cold and heartless and she's to be damned when she shows emotions?

As a independent voter that has never missed an election in almost 40 years of being old enough to vote; as a southern male that has seen women relegated to having to be nothing more than a "First Lady" in the White House; and as someone that has supported both blacks and whites I will cast my vote for the most experience and most knowledgeable Democratic candidate, Mrs. Hillary Clinton.


The woman asked a personal question, Hillary jokingly answers the question, then brings on the emotion and promptly gets serious (no more emotion)and goes on with her political spiel. Very, very, staged scenario. There is NOTHING genuine about that woman. She is delibertaly portraying her gender and seeking sympathy!!! This is an insult to American women who are truly strong and self-confident!! Sorry, Hillary, I don't buy your act!!! And doubt others will!!


Hello everyone...

When she did not show any emotions people say she is mean cold and calculating..now if she chokes up and shows some emotion, its again called calculating...give her a break.....

And what is it with women....does another woman bring out the worst in you and your jealous emotions come to the fore...this is the first and maybe the only time in a long while that you have a woman candidate who can shatter the boy's club....did you see John Edwards comment on this issue - "it take toughness to be the POTUS and the commander in chief" implying that by chocking Hillary showed she is a woman....John Edwards just lost a lot of sympathy for him...he's a mean guy and it comes through....

Michael Davidson

If I had to choose between Clinton or Obama for President, I'd go for Clinton. Obama hasn't crafted out any decent policies - he just relies on soundbites and slogans. Clinton actually has the experience.

I do feel sorry for her because she's blatantly the strongest Democrat candidate yet she won't win because she's a woman.

Americans won't accept a female Commander-in-Chief.


I forgot to add...I am not a US resident so I have no vote and no axe to grind...I just have been following the primaries closely as i am in Canada... one thing strikes me.... Obama is so far to the left that its ironic that he is trying to get the republican vote....honestly if he were running a policy driven campaign rather than one full of phrases and words and if someone were to examine his record then he is found sorely lacking.... do you honestly think that a person who is so far to the left can really attract votes from the moderates and right wing...its more likely Clinton who can do so...and I do like the George Bush analogy she made in teh debate...he really did sell himself on the i am the guy who you would like to drink beer with vs. the stiff and formal Al Gore...and we do see what happened....and where the US has landed itself..in deep SHIT...! Do you guys and ladies want to wake up and smell the roses....?

Peter Coe

Err, well spotted Michael - yes, she is a woman. And Barack Obama is black. It's laughable for Clintonites to (only now) start whining that America won't accept a female commander in chief, when until now it's been far less credible to claim they'd accept a black one.

Will those who say Obama hasn't got policies on X or Y please recite for me what Kennedy's policies were at the same stage of his presidential campaign...or Reagan's, or Bill Clinton's?

You campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Clinton's problem is Kerry's problem: that she has plenty of policies but no compelling narrative as to why anyone should vote for her.

Oh, and by the way, could someone tell me what she's actually "done", given she keeps telling us she has a track record of doing stuff? The only thing I've managed to come up with is marrying someone who went on to become President and spectacularly failing to reform Health. Bravo.

Hillary will make an excellent Senate Majority Leader. But not President.

This is an insult to American women who are truly strong and self-confident!! Sorry, Hillary, I don't buy your act!!! And doubt others will!! Fortitude? I don't think so. Deceipt and spin? Yes, she's a pro at it!!

What a joke! She decides to jerk a tear or two, yet prior to that moment she has been entirely contemptuous, ungracious and beligerent to anyone not bowing down to her perceived entitled position of Democratic front runner.

How wet did her pillow get after her husband disrepected her and their daughter with that intern? She immediately went on to run for the New York State Senator. Just the right move to make to put her in the position she is in right now.


In re Hillary's tears. Over the weekend, on one of the networks, I heard some pundits talk about how exit polls in Iowa had shown that the electorate felt that Hillary Clinton was not "emotional" enough. She was too aloof, etc. So one of the commentators predicted that on Monday, we'd see her cry.

BINGO! She did. What an act!

Look at the tape. My gosh, it's so blatantly fake on her part. This is another Clinton contrivance and it's shocking how CNN and other media keep playing the excerpts, as if this is a legitimate example of her humanity. Bull.

So many have fallen for this ridiculous spectacle.

I'm a registered Democrat but I am sick of the Clintons and their corruption and attitude of entitlement.

I realize all politicians, to one extent or another, adopt a certain artifice as part of the campaign process. But the tears are truly cynical...

I just heard Candy Crowley, David Gergen and Carl Bernstein of CNN all say they thought her tears were real. Either they are easily duped, or they're just playing along with her game.

Im sorry Michael, but your comment about Clinton ever having a chance to clinch the moderates and disappointed Republicans is just wrong. Disregarding the caucus results that just went down in Iowa that show the exact opposite happening, being from a "red state" myself (FL), most social OR fiscal conservatives that I know would hang themselves before voting for Hilary (and thus show support for the Clinton machine).
And how is Obama farther to the left?? Or rather, how is Clinton closer to the center? Obama is the only Dem posing a universal healthcare plan that preserves privatization and ensures that consumers still have a choice. Thats about as close to the right as universal healthcare can get I think. Moreover, Obama's plan for illegal immigration falls in line with many of his Republican counterparts - that is, strengthening the borders while illegals are asked to come forward, learn english, pay a fine and get into the back of the line to recieve citizenship. I cant even tell what Clinton plans are from her website, other than to bring over MORE illegals- planning to unite illegal immigrant workers with their families in "their new country".
AND I dont recall anyone directly apart of the Obama campagin ever making the cliched political claim that he was a laid-back "beer drinker" while Clinton was more stiff and formal. You're simply taking media/public/political pundit OPINION for fact, there buddy.
Back your statements up man- if you're going to watch the race and feel the need to comment, then do your research.


Clinton leads in the most important area so far and that is delegates. As of now and even if she loses all of N.H. delegates she still will have more delegates than Obama or Edwards.

Clinton will win after S.C. and in those states that have the most delegates.

Clinton will win in:
New York
New Jersey


As of now the delegate count is:

Clinton 175
Obama 75
Edwards 46


George Vreeland Hill

I like Hillary.
She will be a wonderful leader for this country.
I do not like it when others try to put her down, and try to dig up some dirt.
If you want the real dirt, then here is the dirt on the Republican Party.
Read this:

The Republican Party is a sick joke, and the people of this country are fed up with them.
From Nixon to Bush, and from Scooter to Larry "Toilet Stall" Craig, the Republicans have proven themselves to be a bunch of lying, corrupt, evil, perverted, over-spending crooks.
When you look at all the money Bill Clinton left this country, it makes us all cry to know that Bush spent it all.
When the money was gone, Bush went to China for help.
Just think, we owe money to China!
That is the Bush way.
Cheney is no better.
You can't trust either of them.
No one does.
Why are we in Iraq?
The war should be on terror, not in Iraq.
Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, and yet Bush has spent all that money to fight "his" war.
Yes his, because many Republicans have backed off from the war.
By the way, the war in Iraq has cost the U.S. almost five hundred billion dollars.
Forget Rudy.
Rudy Giuliani is no hero.
While he is often called the hero of 9/11, the truth is that Rudy was a terrible leader during his years as mayor of New York City.
He made bad decisions and took a girlfriend while being married.
In fact, he even wanted his lover to live in the same house with his wife.
Most people would call this perverted.
New Yorkers were so sick of his antics, that they wanted him out of office.
Then came 9/11.
The only reason people call Giuliani a hero today, is because he just happened to be NYC's mayor during that bad time.
Any mayor would be looked at as a hero if they showed their face under those circumstances.
If there was no 9/11, Rudy would have become a joke.
This is not the kind of leader we want in the White House. In closing, the New York Post reported in their paper on April 23, that Giuliani spent more than $48,000 dollars of campaign money on posh hotels while claiming to have spent the least of all the Republican candidates.
Rudy is a good time leader, and does it with other people's money.
Forget Mitt.
His ads look bad.
He can't seem to get his facts right, and will say things to make himself look good.
Red flags go up around him.
I spoke with his son Tagg at the New Hampshire debates back in June (2007), and while he seemed like a nice man, Tagg could not get his facts right either.
The worst Republican as of late, though, is Larry Craig.
He is a lying pervert who wanted gay sex with a strange man on a dirty toilet seat.
He pled guilty, then said he was not guilty.
Say what?
He is another Republican moron.
Did you hear about Washington State Republican Rep. Richard Curtis?
He offered $1,000 to a young man for unprotected sex while dressed in women's lingerie.
This sort of thing just goes on and on with them.
Remember Mark Foley?
Here is a letter I wrote that was in many newspapers and Web sites:

Once again, the Republicans have turned my stomach with shocking and repulsive behavior.
Mark Foley, a Republican member (now ex-member) of Congress, has sent many e-mails with perverted sexual content to a sixteen year old boy.
This is the same man who while in Congress, backed a bill that was meant to protect children from child predators.
Foley himself, is a man who preyed on a child with lust.
What is also incomprehensible, is the fact that some Republicans knew of Foley’s behavior, and yet, did not take a hard stand against this until it became public news. If I had a teenage son and/or daughter, I would not want them to go near any Republican leader for fear of either or both becoming a victim of a sick Republican pervert.

George Vreeland Hill

There were more than three hundred such letters in newspapers in 2007 alone.
Many of them in New Hampshire.
There are thousands on the Internet.
No lie.
This does not even include articles, ads, radio, TV and other areas where the public takes notice.
In fact, one Republican in California wanted me stopped once, because I was hurting some Republicans in their elections.
I just want to do my part in helping to get rid of every Republican scumbag.
From phone scams to the Union Leader (NH) covering up for Republicans, the garbage never ends.
But the Republican Party will end.
Did you know that George W. Bush once made fun of the issue of Weapons of Mass Destruction?
He did, and in front of some shocked people during a black-tie event in 2004.
He said.... (While looking under a piece of furniture) "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere."
Then, while pretending to look out of a window, Bush laughed as he said..... "Nope, no weapons over there."
While he was laughing, there were men and women fighting and dying in Iraq because of WMD.
George W. Bush should be removed from office because of that alone.
Face it, Bill Clinton lied about having sex, and was impeached because of it.
George W. Bush however, did far worse, as he laughed at the very people who are fighting for the United States of America!
That about sums it all up!
(By the way, this Bush/WMD was part of an article and letter I wrote as well.)
This leads us to John McCain.
All he seems to do is attack other candidates.
His Woodstock ad against Hillary Clinton was boring and without the facts.
He tells of Hillary wanting to spend a million dollars on a museum while he (McCain) supports spending more on the war in Iraq.
He wants you to believe that the Democrats are the big spenders, while it is McCain's Republican Party that has spent all the money Bill Clinton left us to a point where Bush had to borrow money from China.
Think about that again.
We owe to China.
That is the Republican way.
Also, it must be noted that McCain even laughed at war.
Remember when McCain changed the words of a Beach Boys song to Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Iran?
McCain even laughed when he was done.
He thought starting a war with Iran was a laughing matter.
That is the real John McCain.
He just can't be trusted.
He is another George Bush, and you know what we got with him.
The Republican Party is a mess, and getting worse.
People do not trust any of them, and we are all tired of their act.
I am doing my best to make sure that no Republican wins an election.
Thank you for your time.

I have watched the video a number of times and have yet to see where Mrs. Clinton became emotional. I saw no evidence of tears or any instance that she was on the verge of tears. Are we being spun to believe that Mrs. Clinton was so distraught that she was on the verge of breaking down? If that is the case is this what we want as our chief executive? What would she do if confronted by a real crisis. I remind everyone that the other candidates are under the same pressures. Does anyone remember Ed Muskie and his emotional moment? A much more deserved response to a personal attack than Mrs. Clinton has endured. He deserved to be elected as much as Mrs. Clinton does, which is not at all. We need a president that can handle the pressure.


So Hillary.... so fake!!! She will do everything for Hillary.

Yeah, but apart from that, why do you want Hillary to win?
