She is powerful, crafy and Barrack, Billy and Hilary make quite the troyka. It will show up big time during this adminstration.

Do the wealthy no longer school their children in grammar and punctuation?

Comparing Hillary to Palin is like comparing fine champagne to Boone’s Farm. Hillary is an educated, well-travelled and intelligent woman. Palin is a small-minded moron.

Those of you who are worried about the one world government need to check your prescription of Haldol because you may have schizophrenia (characterized by bizarre delusions and hallucinations).

She stood by her husband through a horridly personal event, when she could have ran. Most of you cannot imagine the shame of what she dealt with blown up into the world spotlight. Secretary of State Clinton, you are awesome, and I think doing a terrific job. As for people wanting to impeach Obama I ask this: Why? That ‘incredible’ Bush, you don’t bother to speak against him, and look at what he did to our economy, to our standing in the world’s eye.

I think she has done a great job of it.

I think she’s deliberately laying low so that the scapegoat role doesn’t fall on her. Why not let Obama take all the spotlight, credit and ultimately the RESPONSIBILITY for knee capping the US in the world.

Other then that I think she’s a hard working, smart woman that doing her job. She’s polling very high right now and if she was more in the media crossfire they would find a way of dragging her down, as they’ve always done.

The Bush administration left such a mess behind, I’m sure she has a lot of clean up to keep her busy.

The campaign was a hard fought one, which left me a little disgusted with Hillary – both Clinton’s in general. But I must say, not seeing a lot of her is helping to heal the wounds and brings back the good feeling I once had for them.

I voted for George H.W. Bush, but not Bush 43. I am also a regular church-going Christian — of the mainstream Methodist persuasion.

Is Hillary marginalized? No.

She is working behind the scenes like a good team player. She has been traveling and working for the U.S. as our #1 diplomat. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is traveling to Zurich, London, Dublin, Belfast, and Moscow from October 9 to 15, 2009.

In Zurich, Secretary Clinton attended the signing of two protocols between the governments of Turkey and Armenia. In London and Dublin, the Secretary engaged in a series of discussions on a wide range of bilateral, transatlantic, and global issues. In Belfast, the Secretary emphasized the U.S. commitment to the joint economic prosperity of Northern Ireland and the United States, as well as reaffirming unwavering U.S. support for Northern Ireland’s peace process.

In Moscow, the Secretary is meeting with senior Russian officials to discuss progress on a successor agreement to “START”, cooperation on nonproliferation and counterterrorism, discussions about Iran, and the next steps for the Clinton-Lavrov commission.

She will not upstage President Obama. This makes me respect her all the more. She is doing an excellent job.

To those who think Obama is horrible as a President:
On George Bush’s watch the U.S. was attacked by terrorists (he ignored intelligence). After going to war in Afghanistan (where the terrorists were), he took his eye off the ball and went to war in Iraq (where the terrorists were NOT) after telling us Saddam had WMDs (a lie). The Iraq war has cost us nearly 1 trillion dollars so far.

Under his watch, a recession that started in 2007 was consistently denied — allowing it to turn into a near depression and disaster before giving it any attention — which eventually required billions in bailouts to keep our financial system afloat. Meanwhile, the average income of the middle class actually went down — the middle class was being squeezed.

Under his watch, manufacturing jobs left this country by the millions. We no longer manufacture much of anything. The borrowing of money from China to shore up our country’s debts (to pay for two wars) became rampant. China now practically owns us.

His school-yard bullying attitude of “your either for us or against us” turned practically the entire world against us. Had he had another year in office, we would possibly have become isolated — with a war in Iran.

Before becoming president, Bush failed at every business he “started” and he was in the process of bankrupting this country, too.

He left a mess for the next president to clean up. And no matter who had won — whether McCain or Obama — it will take years to clean up the mess.

In order to help expand your self proclaimed superior intelligence, Hillary is Secretary of State.

A direct shot at the egocentric Obama, the pathologically narcissistic empty suit. Yes he got the Nobel Peace Prize. I can’t figure out why he didn’t get the Nobel for economics as well. He’s equally clueless and naive about that. What a team.

When does a Clinton ever tell the truth? She will run against Obama at the first sign he looks beatable and that point may be reached soon. She will resign her cabinet position and announce to the world she is running “for the good of the nation and the Democrat party to save the country from Obama’s failed policies.” I can’t wait for this to happen.
