    This is very interesting. Liberals are now slamming the "Smartest Women in the World" for not answering questions and taking out one position on the issues.

    What the hell do they expect after 8 years of Bill and Hillary being President? One of the great memorable line from Bill is "It dependeds on what the meaning of is is"


    Liberals slam Hillary over dodge tactics
    By Donald Lambro
    October 5, 2007


    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has been criticized this past week for her evasiveness, dodginess, weasel words and shady connections — not only by her conservative critics but by liberal columnists and reporters.

    In pointed political broadsides from some of the major liberal-leaning publications — including the New York Times and The Washington Post — the New York senator has been the target of surprisingly sharp criticism about her refusal to answer policy questions, investigative reporting about her husband's business dealings and unsavory fundraisers, and even assertions that her candidacy was solely beholden to her husband's political influence.

    When asked by NBC's Tim Russert in last week's Democratic presidential debate about whether following in her husband Bill Clinton's presidential footsteps was creating a dynasty, Mrs. Clinton said, "I'm running on my own. I'm going to the people on my own."

    But that answer didn't wash with Maureen Dowd, the liberal columnist for the New York Times.

    "Without nepotism, Hillary would be running for the president of Vassar," she said in her column Sunday. "Of course, Hillary is never on her own. From the beginning, her campaign has relied on her husband's donors, network, strategies and strong-arming."

    Other columnists and reporters similarly piled on Mrs. Clinton in the aftermath of the Dartmouth College debate that was seen by them as a litany of evasive answers.

    In a post-debate analysis of Mrs. Clinton's "evasiveness on issues," such as troop withdrawals in Iraq, saving Social Security and whether Israel has the right to attack Iran, Associated Press writer Beth Fouhy said she "adopted the time-honored, front-runner strategy of dodging tough questions, contradicting the image of a strong leader."

    Being a Bush fan, how could you possibly make a statement like that and not feel incredibly stupid after reading it to yourself?

    I'm no Clinton fan, but damn dude, as stupid as that was, Bush has one just about EVERY WEEK.

    Well one of them (democratic candidates) is going to have move center-ish at some point. There aren't enough votes on the fringes to win an election. Though there may be enough to lose the election if they're not appeased. The left fringe however doesn't seem to want to entertain any candidate that isn't in lock step with them. Hillary's mistake may have been simply that she is starting to move center to soon. I would think you would want to wait until you at least have the nomination.

    Me, too. She has a 33% lead in the primaries...

    ...and a pretty sizeable lead in polls on the general election (though it's way too early to look at that yet... everything would depend on how things are trending at the time.

    Some of the left are having buyers remorse over the Red Queen. It might get interesting before the first primary is held
