At the Democratic Party Debate, Tuesday, Oct. 30, Hillary Clinton, widely perceived by everybody but Democrats as the Democratic Party “front-runner” in the race to the race for the White House, seemed to stumble.
When asked about documenting undocumented aliens, Senator Clinton seemed to say she was for it, and then seemed to say she was against it, seemed to be contradicting herself. I use the precisely wishy-washy phrase “seemed to” because I’m not exactly sure what I heard and don’t want to give the wrong impression.
However Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Dennis Kucinich, Barak Obama, and Bill Richardson caught on. They are listed in alphabetical order of last names because I don’t want to give the impression that I support any one candidate. I like them all. It’s so hard to make up my mind. Any one could have catapulted her out of the race by saying
So you are saying: “‘it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”
When asked about communications between herself and Bill Clinton, when he was President, Hillary spoke about the “process.” Bill Clinton has asked that the papers be kept secret until 2012.
I would think that Hillary would want to publish any papers that show her to be “Presidential.” As a voter, I would like to see them. She should state, unequivocally, that letters such as “love letters,” and anything personal should be kept private. But discussions involving national policy, such as health care, should be made public. After, isn’t she touting her years in the White House as experience? What has she done?
And when asked about signing on, along with 75 other Senators, to the Bush Cheney drumbeat against Iran, Hillary said ‘We have to use all diplomatic means. Just because we signed on to a non-binding resolution allowing George Bush to use means other than diplomatic doesn’t mean we favor war or anything. We need to try diplomacy first. And Bush is on the wrong course.
We need to work with Republicans.
Yep, real Presidential.
