I have one question...what has she done to make her eligible as a possible candidate for the office of President? To my own understanding the answer is NOTHING. She was elected on name recognition and face value. She has accomplished NOTHING while trolling for acceptance in the NY Senate and all she can muster up is a screeching cachophony of lies and putrid hate. AGAIN,what has she accomplished and how has she made life better for the people of NYState?

Besides not being a borrow and spend Republican?

I'm thinking the "tax and spend Democrat" tag is not a good strategy for Republicans this coming election season.

On the Democrat side,

I won't vote for a Democrat that does not support the right to bear arms.

I won't vote for any party that supports anything other than enforcing the immigration laws we have, prosecuting those that employ illegals and securing the borders in a meaningful way. I'd sooner my tax dollars went into returning illegals to the shore they arrive on 1000 miles out.

On either side, their voting record is major component in my decision making process.

1. The republican party has done nothing to stop or stem the flow of jobs outconus.
2. The republican party has made record time in slashing taxes for the rich, and buying off the working class with piddly tax breaks, and taking the revenue from social programs that benefit the disabled, elderly, and military veterans.
3. The republican party attached the min wage bill with the estate tax crap, I watched the whole thing.
4. The republican admin has fleeced the country over the Iraq war, the no bid contracts, to Halliburton (worked for them once, they bought us, the took proprietary info, sold us) who has ripped off the tax payer, no accountability for billions of dollars etc, etc, ad nausium
5. Lets not forget Katrina and the feds that mishandled that, had their own people stealing from the funding and those folks still are in desperate need of organized assistance for their continued state of emergancy.

The republicans have had the control, they own it. They can't blame the demorcrats with a republican admin, senate and congress.

Americans won't buy it.
Our former Allies don't buy it
Terrorists take it to the bank!

Well now that ya'll finished bashing Hillary, not that I particularlly like her, let me ask you a question.
What did G.W.Bush did, to deserve to be president, other than name recognision and a lot of money from his oilmen friends. His father bought the presidency, but at least had more sense than him. His ONLY acomplisment in life was to con the Texans into builting him a stadium, for which he made 15m profit, and realized that the only thing he realy can do well is to BS people. He sure can do that well. From there on, he made it his life's purpose to destroy this country. And he is doing that even better. Can Hillary really do wortst?

Hilary is a joke. When her husband was finally shown to be a liar, all she said was 'he fooled me'. Her excuse for voting pro Bush agenda's early on, are "he fooled me." You really want some one who admits she is easily fooled running the country?
She condemns Bush for not warning the American public before 9/11 that it could happen, siting facts that CIA and other Agencies had information for (her words) Many many months. Yet, all this information had been around since 1999 I believe. Wasn't it a Clinton in office for most of that time?
But I guess Hilary didn't want to deprive Bill of his Monica time long enough for HIM to warn anyone....
I am not saying I agree with Bush and what he does.
But we already had 8 years of Hilary. I don't want her back for more.

Why did the people in New York elect her then? Let's see what has happened during the tenure of Mr. George W. Bush. Tax cuts? Great, only now gas is 3.33 a gallon, wages pushed back to 1968, heating a mere 200.00 a month minimum, healthcare premiums out of the roof, illegal immigration a nightmare. Now he wants us all to start our own medical care accounts and pension accounts. With what? Any candidate will take care of terrorism, that's what a President has the military and a cabinet for. Hillary will have the experience and advice of William Jefferson Clinton, and ALL his former cabinet members, for help. She's not perfect, but a heck of a lot better than economy draining Bush. I've yet to see any Republican that can do anything worthwhile for any kind of an economy. They are just a group of power-hungry politicians that haven't a clue as to what to do in the White House. They merely want to hog it up. Self-serving, and business-serving, but NEVER people serving. Hillary's a better ticket.

I agree, Hillary is the greatest and she will bring Bill with her, another big benefit. Bush is a worthless POC. The only thing I wonder about you, an admitted Republican, is talking how terrible they are, and why did you vote for Bush twice?

Why are you such a mentally-troubled person? What does it matter who anybody voted for, especially me? If you don't quit hounding me, I will inform the moderators of this persistent hounding. I can vote for Charlie Brown, its none of your business sicko.

I will vote for Hillary. We are America, and it's about time we voted in a female! We are the country that claims to be equality-minded, yet no woman has ever sat in the oval office, except as a spouse only. Our country lags so far behind, yet claims to be so "progressive". I know Hillary will do her utmost to give the people of this country a chance at some form of the "American Dream", or a share of it. She will do for the people, not just big business, or herself. I hope she runs. Barak Obama is a good choice for a running mate.

Well, I'm in favor of a woman being president, just not her. Should Condoleeza Rice ever choose to run, I would vote her in in a heart beat. Not just because she is a Republican, because, trust me, right now I'm kind of turned of to the Republican party. But even Democrats can agree with me in saying that Rice is just great at what she does, and she is about the only respected person in the Cabinet right now.

I think Jessie Jackson, Barbara Boxer or Charles Rangel would be much better running mates.

Hmmmm, I never really thought about that. If your facts are accurate, that might sway me to vote in another direction. Oprah, yes, I would seriously consider voting for her. It would depend a lot on some other issues, but I would seriously consider her.

Condo and Geraldo? Nah. Who trusts a 40(?) year old virgin and God's gift to the world. Give me Bill anytime. He proved what he can do. With Hillary in the white house he can LIVE in the oval office and has all the time in the world to train the future female politicians.
