Hilary for President

January 22nd, 2007 // 5 Comments

Yahoo News reports that Hilary Clinton has announced her bid for the presidency.

Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton embarked on a widely anticipated campaign for the White House on Saturday, a former first lady intent on becoming the first female president. “I’m in and I’m in to win,” she said on her Web site.

Clinton’s announcement, days after Sen. Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) shook up the contest race with his bid to become the first black president, establishes the most diverse political field ever.

Clinton is considered the front-runner, with Obama and 2004 vice presidential nominee John Edwards top contenders. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who would be the first Hispanic president, intends to announce his plans on Sunday.

More on what Hilary Clinton had to say after the jump.

“You know after six years of George Bush, it is time to renew the promise of America,” Clinton says in a videotaped message in which she invites voters to begin a dialogue with her on the major issues — health care, Social Security and Medicare, and the war in Iraq.

“I’m not just starting a campaign, though, I’m beginning a conversation with you, with America,” she said. “Let’s talk. Let’s chat. The conversation in Washington has been just a little one-sided lately, don’t you think?”

Clinton! Obama! I’m a kid in a political candy store! If she makes it to the White House, it’s her god given right to snap a male intern’s thong. She’s had it coming.

    It’s Hillary, not Hilary, just saying.

    The Hussein remark is rasist. just saying.

    Is this really the best our country can do? Are there really only two families qualified to run this country?

    When do we break out the crowns and start calling them their Highnesses?

    Seriously, this is the worst possible thing to happem to the Democratic party, becuase it will further polarize the nation, and frankly, as a Democrat, I won’t vote for someone that I find so very repellant. She is _not_ the lesser of two evils, except perhaps in the face of Jeb Bush.

    OR Neil. Shit, I’d vote for a cabbage before Neil.

    Above post could not have summed up my exact feelings any better. I’d probably vote to reelect Bush (Yes, I know it’s not really possible) before I’d give a thought to giving ole Hillary a shot at the White Hhouse.

    Hillary is one of the most mean spirited, power hungry, devious, obnoxious and corrupt people in politics today. All you have to do is find some of the interviews with the people that had to serve them like secret service, staff and armed forces personnel to get the truth about this witch.
