    With all of the Hillary Clinton bashing going on in this forum lately(and which will continue through the rest of this campaign and all during her presidency), I thought it might be a gentlemanly thing to allow her campaign to get a word in edgewise. :)

    [​IMG]

    As First Lady and U.S. senator, Hillary visited more than 80 countries and met countless world leaders as America's representative. In the Senate, Hillary has continued to promote America's interests through her work on international affairs.

    Senator Clinton takes very seriously the threats we face from terrorism. She believes President Bush's singular focus on Iraq has distracted him from waging the war on terror effectively and emboldened our enemies. As president, she will be tough and smart in combating terrorism.

    Hillary has steadfastly fought for Israel's right to exist peacefully and to defend its people against terrorism. She has condemned Hamas's rise to power. She has spoken out against the problem of anti-Semitism in Palestinian textbooks and condemned Iran's conference on the Holocaust. She also successfully helped Magen David Adom join the International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.

    She has continued to advance peace in Northern Ireland by maintaining close ties with Irish leaders and promoting business partnerships between Northern Ireland and the United States.

    Hillary has been a forceful and consistent advocate for a more robust response to the violence in Darfur since May 2004. She has raised the issue with the Bush administration and pushed for more resources for peacekeeping efforts.

    I don't know that anyone has done anything real in Darfur, and we can debate whether it's a Constitutional allowance (or mandate) that we should. Hillary has at times had the fortitude to admit that she made the votes she actually cast, yet at times she gets amnesia.

    She deserves credit for at least speaking a pro-market speak and pro-defense speak.

    Hillary isn't the best choice, but she's not pure evil.

    She'll be a disaster if elected, unless congress can/will tie her down.

    You talk as if this is the gospel truth. Unless you are clairvoyant this statement is pure speculation.

    If she is elected, it could work out differently than you think it will.

    Although I am not a republican and did not vote for George Bush, I did not think he would be nearly as bad a president as he has turned out to be.

    An opinion is most often considered truth by the one opining. (I have every right to my opinion) I know this woman's and her husbands history, and they are very bad people.

    My hope would be, if elected, her socialist agenda would be suppressed by congress. She is quite open in her desire to socialize health care, and her little slogan "It takes a village to raise a child" speaks volumes. Her "village" is the federal govt.
    She wants to return to dialog, and diplomacy in dealing with radical Islam.

    Hillary is a communist. What she wants is contrary to the founding of this country.

    Not really. We have a number of years of her comments and suggested policies on record.

    So it is hardly "pure speculation".

    That's a ridiculous statement and unsupportable by fact. Why don't you give us some facts to back up your claim?

    Since Hillary Clinton is not a communist, I don't think you will be hearing much more about this subject from Timmy. He just doesn't like her and will look for any way possible to criticize her.

    Ken sound like he is already setting himself up for a Ron Paul defeat. Dont worry Ken. There is still a chance Ron Paul will abandon the GOP and lose on a third party ticket. I think by July or August of '08.

    Democrats haven't bought into that one since Kennedy was shot.

    1) Ron Paul has no chance to win the GOP nomination; never had a chance to win the GOP nomination. I told the local radio talk show host long before Ron Paul mentioned the idea of running for president that I wish that he would do so - not that he could win but just to put the libertarian message out to a broader audience than the Libertarian Party presidential candidate is able to do. That goal has been accomplished already and I am quite satisfied.

    2) Unfortunately, Ron Paul has already said no to the idea of running as a minor party or independent candidate.
