    The Tribune-Review is owned and published by conservative Richard Mellon Scaife, who rabidly accused Hillary of murdering her friend, Vince Foster.

    Obviously, Scaife has changed his mind. Is he now saying that Hillary didn't kill Vince Foster, or is he saying that Foster had it coming?

    He is saying she is a better choice then Obama. Pretty clear to me. He is saying IF a democrat wins it would be better for this country if it is Hillary, then Obama, something I happen to agree with, by the way.

    Of course since Republican conservatives won't be voting in the democratic primary he is providing this opinion to the undecideds that may be voting and have conservative views but vote democratic.

    Your grasp of the obvious is better than your sense of humor, RGS.

    You are catching on, Dogger.

    She was interviewed by Scaife and his editorial board a week or so ago. She apprently did quite well in their opinion. After the interview, Mr. Scaife stated that his opinion of her had improved.

    Hillary as prez, Obama as VP for eight years. Then Obama for prez and Chelsea for VP for another 8:rofl:

    Rush, Coulter, Savage etc would love that. Hell, Clinton's tours in the Whitehouse made Rush what is today. Well, besides the druggy stuff.:eusa_whistle:

    I think he's saying that Hillary is the more conservative of the two between her and Obama.;)

    It just seems odd to me that Scaife thinks her conservative cred outweighs his belief that she's a stone cold killer.

    I know there's a debate as to whether Scaife is pro-life or pro-choice, but I always thought the right-wing's position on first degree murder was clear.

    Scaife didn't believe the "Hillary murdered Foster" thing any more than he believed the swiftboat liars were telling the truth. He has an agenda. Part of me thinks he's supporting Hillary because he thinks McCain will have an easier time beating her. The other part of me would like to think that he was just impressed with her because she had huge nerve just walking in to that interview...

    But who knows?

    The "right wing," huh? Odd I never heard of this so-called "representative" of the "right wing" before today. Must be a REALLY important dude.:eusa_whistle:

    It WAS rather kind of Foster to kick the bucket at the most advantageous moment for the Clintons, wasn't it?:eusa_whistle:

    Did they ever find the getaway broom Hillary used.:badgrin:
