UPDATED: Hillary Doesn't Look So Bad Now...


Where are these coattails? Virginia gone to the (R), New Jersey gone to the (R) and now Mass. Senate picked up by another (R).

Can't blame Bush tonight can we?

Let's go back two years to help remind the readers:

NYTIMES January 25, 2008  “The sense of possibility, of a generational shift, rouses Mr. Obama’s audiences and not just through rhetorical flourishes. He shows voters that he understands how much they hunger for a break with the Bush years, for leadership and vision and true bipartisanship. We hunger for that, too. But we need more specifics to go with his amorphous promise of a new governing majority, a clearer sense of how he would govern.”

How he would govern...I have no idea...he is not standing up for anything....He is just letting Congress run his agenda.

Gitmo is still open, Health Care is going to fail, and what about Don't Ask Don't Tell....They didn't teach this on the campaign trail now did they Mr. President.

What would have Hillary would have done? We don't know...we wanted a nice speaker for President.

Oh and by the way...remember that promise to have open discussions on Health Care and deal making? All behind closed doors. Someone realized you can't make deals in front of the cameras. Hillary knew that.

Can't forget this now:

Chris Matthews, Night of the Potomac Primaries:

 “I have to tell you, you know, it's part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event. He speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment.”


At least Hillary would know how to work the system.

Let me end with this....Just proves how good she is.

Clinton named Al-Qaeda Yemen as terror group a month ago 


Here's one thing that didn't make the recent official or press chronologies of the Obama Administration's actions towards Al Qaeda in Yemen: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton formally designated the group as a terrorist organization back on December 14.

That's 11 days before the attempt to bring down a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day--an act believed to have been organized by Al Qaeda's Yemeni affiliate, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). However, no one seems to have made Clinton's action public until last Friday, January 15, when the paperwork (see here and here) was submitted for publication in Tuesday morning's Federal Register." Josh Gerstein, Politico.com

Ah what if, what if. But we will never know. Obama is no Bill Clinton. Obama is no Leader...Obama is only a good Speaker.



Updated: And she just keeps rolling Ladies and Gentlemen. She keeps her on on the diplomatic ball and our current Speaker in Chief can't decide which agenda he wants this week:

U.S. will not back down on Iran nuclear issue: Clinton By: Reuters | 21 Jan 2010 | 01:28 PM ET Text Size

WASHINGTON - Major powers are united in working toward pressuring Iran over its nuclear program, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday, despite many signals that China is reluctant to impose more sanctions.

Senior diplomats from Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States met in New York on Saturday to discuss the possibility of placing more international sanctions on Iran.

The West suspects that Iran's nuclear program is a cover for developing atomic weapons. Iran has said the program is designed to generate electricity so that it can export more of its valuable oil and gas.

"We are unified in our resolve to work toward pressure on Iran in the face of their continuing rejection of the overtures by the international community," Clinton said at a news conference, calling Saturday's meeting a "productive step."

Earlier this month China argued in public that now was not the right time to place further sanctions on Iran and it sent only a low level official to attend Saturday's meeting while the other powers sent senior foreign ministry officials.

"Let me be clear: we will not be waited out and we will not back down," Clinton said. "Iran has a very clear choice between continued isolation and living up to its international obligations."


Ga. Secretary of State Asks DOJ to OK Discriminatory Voter Verification Procedure

Cross posted to Project Vote's Voting Matters Blog

A Georgia voter list maintenance procedure that the Department of Justice shut down as "discriminatory" in May is being brought up again by Secretary of State Karen Handel, who asked the Department to reconsider its decision and grant preclearance last Wednesday. This appeal has brought the disappointment of voting rights advocates and, if successful, could result in the disenfranchisement of thousands of legitimate voters.

She Proves Herself: Matthews Praises Hillary Clinton [UPDATE X2]

I was at the gym today running on the treadmill watching Hardball. I do admit my loyalty to the show because of the political coverage, analysis, and theories. I still throw up in my mouth sometimes on some comments but overall, I still remain loyal to the show.

Anyways, I was running at my usual pace of 6.6 miles per hour when Matthews presented his weekly Hardball Award. This week's winner was no other Hillary Clinton. The first woman ever awarded. I starting thinking to myself "Oh gawd, now what did she do that he sees as wrong or intent to undermine Obama's Presidency."

But when he started talking, and I am not joking here, I laughed out loud so loudly, I counted four people who turned around to look. I literally choked on my water because I could not believe what he was saying. Yes Chris Matthews, on Hardball, saying this about Hillary Clinton. I stopped running, scratched may head, and just began to laugh. I even walked over to my cell phone and called a close friend who follows the show. She was simply amazed.(In her defense, she told me early on to get over the Hillary loss in the Primary and support Obama...which eventually I did because of her...Thanks Ms. Davis).

Please just watch below:

I can't believe this:

Senate Confirms Hillary Clinton As Secretary Of State

After John Cornyn refused to allow Hillary Clinton a unanimous consent vote in the Senate, she has now been confirmed by the Senate as Secretary of State by an overwhelming 94-2 margin with David Vitter (R-Brothel...err..LA) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) the only 'No' votes. Way to embarrass Senator Clinton, there Big John!

The Senate confirmed Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state Wednesday as President Barack Obama moved to make his imprint on U.S. foreign policy, mobilizing a fresh team of veteran advisers and reaching out to world leaders. The Senate voted 94-2, with Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana and Jim DeMint of South Carolina opposing.

Republicans and Democrats alike said her swift confirmation was necessary so that Obama could begin tackling the major foreign policy issues at hand, including two wars, increased violence in the Middle East and the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.

"It is essential that we provide the president with the tools and resources he needs to effect change, and that starts with putting a national security team in place as soon as possible," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

John McCain used the opportunity to spout some unity language about both parties coming together in a vote of bipartisan support for Clinton, apparently planning to cast himself as the elder statesman of unity and I guess to try to wash away the film that still lingers after his embarrassing and dirty campaign for president. I think it's clear that Republicans see more upside to cooperating with Obama than crossing him. I guess they're not as dumb as I thought.
