    It takes one to know one, as the old saying goes...... Of course, this history about Hillary is already out there; just hasn't been openly declared so plainly by a Democrat. Why Obama doesn't counter punch is the question. The ammo is readily available to him.

    Why Hillary Makes My Wife Scream
    By Tom Hayden, The Huffington Post
    April 22, 2008

    To take just one example, the imagined association between Barack Obama and Bill Ayers will suffice. Hillary is blind to her own roots in the Sixties. In one college speech she spoke of ecstatic transcendence; in another, she said, "our social indictment has broadened. Where once we exposed the quality of life in the world of the South and the ghettos, now we condemn the quality of work in factories and corporations. Where once we assaulted the exploitation of man, now we decry the destruction of nature as well. How much longer can we let corporations run us?"

    She was in Chicago for three nights during the 1968 street confrontations. She chaired the 1970 Yale law school meeting where students voted to join a national student strike again an "unconscionable expansion of a war that should never have been waged." She was involved in the New Haven defense of Bobby Seale during his murder trial in 1970, as the lead scheduler of student monitors. She surely agreed with Yale president Kingman Brewster that a black revolutionary couldn't get a fair trial in America. She wrote that abused children were citizens with the same rights as their parents. [75]

    Most significantly in terms of her recent attacks on Barack, after Yale law school, Hillary went to work for the left-wing Bay Area law firm of Truehaft, Walker and Burnstein, which specialized in Black Panthers and West Coast labor leaders prosecuted for being communists. Two of the firm's partners, according to Treuhaft, were communists and the two others "tolerated communists". Then she went on to Washington to help impeach Richard Nixon, whose career was built on smearing and destroying the careers of people through vague insinuations about their backgrounds and associates.(interesting tidbit that Hayden left out about her work on the Nixon prosecutorial committee: she was so unethical in her work on this committee that she was fired by her boss)

    All these were honorable words and associations in my mind, but doesn't she see how the Hillary of today would accuse the Hillary of the Sixties of associating with black revolutionaries who fought gun battles with police officers, and defending pro-communist lawyers who backed communists? Doesn't the Rev. Jeremiah Wright whom Hillary attacks today represent the very essence of the black radicals Hillary was associating with in those days? And isn't the Hillary of today becoming the same kind of guilt-by-association insinuator as the Richard Nixon she worked to impeach?

    So what's your complaint now? That Hillary's too moderate?

    Make up your minds.

    Let me see if I understand this. Tom Hayden writes a column about the Hillary he knows (verified by factual data), and Jillian thinks he is describing a moderate. Imagine that. Hillary will be a moderate when pigs learn to fly; but if it makes you feel better to accept her current political stance as to who she really is…

    How about referring to me in the first person?

    As for Hillary's stance, I think people's politics evolve. Or do you think McCain is the same person he was 8 years ago? I don't think he's even close.

    And I don't agree with a lot of what Tom Hayden says because unlike the right, which marches in lockstep, I pick and choose the issues on which I agree and disagree.

    For all her associations as an attorney with unsavory individuals, I don't think she has sunk quite to the level of Obama, who has embraced, befriended,and refused to condemn them for their hatred of America.

    So she was on a Black Panther team. Is she still involved with that group? If she isn't, and if she isn't meeting with them to strategize and pray, or going over to their homes for dinner and political discussion, I honestly don't see how it compares.
