Constructive gadfly

With tonight's home run Hillary should be in the Hall of Fame. She blew away any doubt that she is a real team player. Of course, Fox News called the hit a foul.

It was quite the impressive, impassioned speech; her supporters should have gotten the message.

I sat back, watching, rather blown away by her; she, for lack of a more eloquent way of putting it, kicked ass.

I didn't realize it at first until Britt Hume commented on it, but he was right that there was no vouching for Barack on a personal level. Clinton simply endorsed a checklist of policy with no  mentions of humanity, courage,  or any other attributes and qualities that she saw in him or thought qualified him. It was cold and clinical at best.

Hillary only plays for one team, and that's the Clintons.

One of the reasons I am glad I am not a party member.  Having to prostitute yourself like that is very degrading.

She was great.  I hope she still gets her chance to take it to the White House.  I always knew she kicked ass.

Wow, so that was Hillary talking? I thought I was watching a Charlie Brown movie and Hillary was one of the adults talking, all I could here was a trumpet like sound. I guess trumpets due use air to make noise so I can see how some were "blown" away.

kicked ass

I completely agree. She definitely kicked her own party, just like her husband did that same night with his X and Y analogy.

Wow, guys.  Just let that predisposition to detest everything out of the woman's mouth to color your vision of an incredible speech.

REAL classy.

Hmm, okay?  I guess that's so obvious from her role as a public servant and through her women's rights advocation.  You can also see that Clinton "selfish" nature through the work she's done encouraging education and promoting benefit for the middle and low class workers of America.  I highly doubt there is any politician out there only for their own interest or their family's interests.

She spoke articulately and passionately about the distinctions between the core party issues, and the reasons why we should elect Barack Obama.  You don't have to agree with her, but at least some recoginition for a well presented speech might be appropriate.  Speaking publically, as we all probably know, is never a truly easy/simple task to pull off well.

women's rights advocation.

That one is laughable.  I saw her "advocacy" with Paula Jones, Gennifer FLowers, Kathy Wiley, Monica Lewinski, etc.

YOu can call a pigs ear a silk purse, but it does not make it one.
