Happy Birthday, Hillary

Happy Birthday to Hillary Clinton who turns 60 today.

She celebrated last night at a party in New York. Elvis Costello and the Wallflowers provided the music, Billy Crystal was M.C. The event raised $1.5 million.

The latest AP poll numbers make a good birthday present for her. Among Democrats:

  • Hillary Rodham Clinton, 43 percent
  • Barack Obama, 22 percent
  • John Edwards, 14 percent
  • Bill Richardson, 6 percent

    1. She's the only Democratic presidential candidate who voted for Kyl-Lieberman Amend. (yes, Obama failed us too).

    2. She stands by her Blank-Check-To-Bush-On-Iraq  vote.

    3. She is now the lone candidate, via indefinite language, not supporting a filibuster of the Telecom-Spying-Immunity-Sellout.

    How low does she have to go until buyer's remorse sets in?

    how quickly the anti-Hillarys show up when her name appears.  How does that work?

    Happy Birthday, Senator Clinton!

    how Sen Clinton's supporters are unable to rebut the indefensible.

    Then again, it's not; rabbit holes have long chambers.

    Rethink and retract your support for attacking Iran.

    Rethink. And get behind Senator Dodd's filibuster.

    Eat cake.

    I can't believe you're saying all those fat cats who raised one point five million and change will have more influence in the future direction of the country than the average supporter!

    How dare you!

    How dare you!

    When it comes to Senator Clinton, money is irrelevant!!

    Clinton will give everyone equal access, whether they contributed five cents or they bundled five hundred thousand dollars in contributions.

    In fact, you should call her office and book your oval office appointment, right NOW!!

    Since Hillary is a polarizer, is it fair to assume that her 43% is the proHillary vote and the rest is the antiHillary vote?  Unless Edwards' plan is to divide the opposition (thus blocking Obama) and be rewarded with another VP nomination.
