I just received a comment about Hillary and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. This was from a life long Democrat, and though I don’t agree with everything that was said, I respect the thought that went into it and I believe it is representative of the opinion of many voters. The comment was made by user mcswain, today, February 29, 2008. Here is the comment as submitted:
on Hillary, if I may……
I have been a lifelong Democrat. I have not missed an election in the last 40 years, literally.
This Obama fellow is what is needed now, it is his time; our time. I am much older than he.
It matters not whether he can deliver, no one can really now. But he brings Hope that may be he/we can. That is what is required now, Hope and hard work. Obama is that, that and a young man’s family’s energy. That and mixed race. That and International. That and Black in America.
Hillary also is about Hope. Resolve too. However, she and Bill had their shot. Took it, hit the mark, dead on. President and Mrs. Clinton. Twice. Undeniable. 8 years. Most everyone had a some good years. Enough.
Another Hillary however……. now it has become about her; them, Bill and Hillary. About obstinance, revenge, vindication, arrogance, pay-back, resolve and a bit of Hope. About Bill involving himself in scuffles and disturbances in the crowds. About Hillary not congratulating or even acknowledging Obama’s last, whatever is the number, of victories in a row. Ridiculous. Bill & Hillary’s time was together in the past. Help them off the stage before one of them falls off and gets hurt again.
OK, that’s it.

US voters have short memories and many are oblivious to the truth and resemble more cattle been driven to the slaughter.
I have been revisiting “Rewriting History”, by Dick Morris, that was published in 2004 and made the NY Times bestseller list. Dick Morris was an advisor to Bill Clinton and became his campaign manager in the 1996 election. Dick Morris spent a lot of time with Bill and Hillary Clinton and knew them intimately. Dick Morris has become a serious critic of Bill and Hillary Clinton and in “Rewriting History” he reveals the truth about Hillary, the truth that only an insider and confidant could have. It still amazes me how much of the public ignores or refuses to believe the true nature of the Clintons. Here are some excerpts from “Rewriting History.” I urge you to read the book for yourself and do corroborating research.
“But some of Hillary’s hidden side is indeed dark.”
“Both of the Clintons are masters of subterfuge.”
“By contrast, Hillary knows full well who she is and what parts of her must never be exposed to public view. She reminds herself consciously, day after day, which parts of herself to hide and which to expose. Where Bill’s instinct for deception is neurotic, Hillary’s is opportunistic. He wants to hide his private life from our eyes; Hillary seeks to conceal her character from our view. But the things that Hillary hides are integral to her political essence. They are who she is and what makes her tick. Her trickery is designed to hide her most basic character and instincts from all of us.”
“The Clintons released their tax returns, but not for 1978 or 1979. Why not? I wondered. When the scandal about Hillary’s winnings in cattle future emerged, I had my answer: They were apparently anxious to hide her profits, lest there be questions about insider trading…”
“In fact, Hillary did not report her commodities profits on her
1980 tax returns; indeed, she reported a loss of $ 1,000. In April 1984, Clinton attorney, David Kendall had to announce that the Clintons were paying $ 14,615 in additional taxes, interest, and penalty on their underreported income for these years.”
A lot has been written about the “Whitewater Scandal”, but what Dick Morris has written is a must read. Here is a small sample:
“Hillary writes warmly of Susan McDougal for choosing years in jail rather than answer Starr’s questions. “Susan was suffering in jail for refusing to testify before the Whitewater Grand Jury.” But Hillary hasn’t always been so nice about Susan McDougal. When it looked as though she might turn on the Clintons, Hillary told me: “She is such a liar. She worked for Zubin Mehta and stole his silver. She’s crazy, unstable, and totally dishonest. You can’t trust a thing she says.” Susan was eventually acquitted of stealing from Mehta.”
“While I was working for the Clintons, I had firsthand experience with the tactics they used to distract, delay, and derail the work of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.”
I could go on and on quoting Dick Morris, but it is better if you
read the book for yourself. Dick Morris has a website and if you have any questions or want more insight, visit:
