    SAN FRANCISCO—President Clinton said last night that Democrats are on the verge of taking control of Congress because Republican leaders in Washington have abandoned the core principles once associated with their party.

    "The reason we are at this moment is that they do not represent faithfully the Republicans and the more conservative independents in the country. Otherwise, we wouldn't be here tonight," Mr. Clinton told donors at a fund-raiser for Democratic congressional candidates. "This is a sweeping, deep, big thing….If you're a conservative on the budget, on law enforcement, on the rule of law, when it comes to the environment, on the conservation of our military resources, you have to be a Democrat."

    The former president also said Americans are no longer responding to the tried-and-true Republican campaign tactic of caricaturing Democrats as wide-eyed liberals.:p:

    "For so long their strategy of turning us from three-dimensional human beings into two-dimensional cartoons worked for them, that they ran that old dog out of the chute one time too many," Mr. Clinton said. "I don't want to be told that I have to vote because I should ‘be very afraid,'" he added, putting spooky emphasis on the word, "very."

    Organizers said last night's event brought in $2.5 million, the largest haul of the year for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

    At times the fund-raiser, held in a downtown theater near its capacity of 1800 people, seemed like an ebullient coronation for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat who is expected to become speaker of the house if her party can pick up 15 seats on Tuesday.

    ….If you're a conservative on the budget, on law enforcement, on the rule of law, when it comes to the environment, on the conservation of our military resources, you have to be a Democrat

    WTF is "conservation of our military resources"? Is he talking about cutting the military power in half and rounds and rounds of base closures? And I have yet to see any conservatism come out of the Democratic camp concerning Law Enforcement, giving constitutional rights to foreign born terrorist is conservative? Not supporting a safe and secure Mexican border is conservative?

    Puh-leez Mr. President, how about you let us conservatives determine who we have to vote for. :D

    What I mean is, I find it laughable that Democrats are celebrating the fact that they're able to raise big bucks in hotbeds of socialist looney-ism. What the hell is their next piece of hopeful news - "Eureka! We have the support of the unions"???!!!
