    Classic illustration of why Hillary Clinton is liked around the world. She just 'gets' us. Was the only interview she gave while in Aus - to two Rock Jock comedians..

    I especially like the question about "Have you ever wanted to say to somebody 'you have made a powerful enemy'"...lol

    'Outside' is the operative word. Inside the US she serves as a foil for the conservatives and right wingnuts, they love her today because she can't do good things that oppose the status quo. Funny how Satan can change colors in politics.



    "Not only does there seem to be widespread social fragmentation and disillusionment with democracy in the United States, but the possibility of reversing this sense of alienation appears to many of us to be already lost. Any democratic president who wants to institute the desperately needed reforms in health, welfare and the environment faces one of two options. He can stick by his reform program and suffer a loss of public confidence through orchestrated campaigns to publicly portray him as 'too liberal' and ineffectual (the Carter image) or too indecisive or sexually indiscreet (the Clinton image). Alternatively, a reforming democratic president can move further to the Right, forget his promises and become part of the propaganda campaign. Given the history of democratic propaganda in the United States, some of us doubt that another Roosevelt or New Deal is possible. The political system is now so attuned to business interests that this kind of reformer could no longer institute the substantial health, welfare, education, environmental and employment reforms the country needs."

    yes. she should be. but she isn't.

    on the other hand, if she were in power, the right would be in full hysteria about her, too.
