    Hillary Clinton's Amorphous World
    By Kathleen Parker, Orlando Sentinel
    August 3, 2005

    The conventional wisdom is that Sen. Hillary Clinton has moved right, becoming hawkish in war, socially centrist and tough on immigration as she prepares for a presidential bid in 2008.

    No, wait, the conventional wisdom is that Sen. Hillary Clinton has always been a social moderate and is just reiterating positions she's always held.

    No, scratch that. The conventional wisdom is that Sen. Hillary Clinton is a socialist ideologue who secretly hates the military and wants to create a nanny state through universal health care and government-run day care.

    Which of these is true principally depends on which you want to be true, as one can find some evidence for all. Clinton is, if nothing else, reliably flexible. What she personally believes seems to depend largely on the audience.

    I wish she would become a vocal chameleon. Her voice is like chalk on a blackboard.

    I heard she is taking voice lessons to overcome the "natural" shrillness in her voice. Didn't know you could be born with a "shrill" voice. I think she needs a "personality" coach to help her mask that. I guess she learned from Howard Dean's experience that, if she wants to succeed in politics at the national level, she needs to camoflague those qualities about herself that turn people off.
