Sen. Clinton Statement

Statement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
Thursday, Sep 4, 2008

The two party conventions showcased vastly different directions for our country. Senator Obama and Senator Biden offered the new ideas and positive change America needs and deserves after eight years of failed Republican leadership. Senator McCain and Governor Palin do not.

After listening to all the speeches this week, I heard nothing that suggests the Republicans are ready to fix the economy for middle class families, provide quality affordable health care for all Americans, guarantee equal pay for equal work for women, restore our nation's leadership in a complex world or tackle the myriad of challenges our country faces. So, to slightly amend my comments from Denver: NO WAY, NO HOW, NO McCAIN-PALIN.

    I am so happy the protester came in and let them know whats in her heart. CNN, why wont you tell the truth and stop playing games? They are using fear tactics and cold false lies about Barack to scare Americans. People are so upset about what they are doing. The fact that they are parading around a down-sydrome baby, making sure the camera catches his face, or picking a woman who is not qualfied at all to V.P. is simply absurd! Cindy Mccain said she is qualified because she is a pistol-packing hockey mom, while laughing and smiling? Are you kidding me? This is not a joke CNN. People are suffering everyday and this is what the republicans are doing? They make fun of people working in the communities and CNN you wont do anything but say oh what a homerun speech Palin made or Campell Brown, you saying how much you relate to her parading around her baby. Well I have a friend who has a special needs daughter and she was simply outraged and simply offended about how Palin was showing off and using her child. CNN tell the truth! This is ridiculous. Do not lie like these republicans are doing! People are writing in from your blogs so upset, so tired, and you pay them no attention! If you want to know the truth, listen to what we are saying! STOP THE LIES CNN AND TELL THE TRUTH!

    Awesome Hill!!

    It is so on now.

    I love how McCain is acting like he's the solution instead of being part of the problem over the last 8 years.

    Let's kick some "Pale McCain" butt!

    John McCain's 5 favorite Phrases:

    5)" My Friends"….
    4) "Drill, Drill, Drill"…
    3) "Senator Obama"… (followed by anything negative)….
    2) "The Surge"….

    And Finally:
    1) (Blah, Blah)…"I was a POW"..(insert any irrelevant phrase after).

    Sarah Palin, I know Hillary Clinton. I've supported her. She's my friend. And Governor Palin ... You are NO Hillary Clinton.

    Makes me wonder. I can just see Obama coming out tommorrow and saying if he's elected that Hillary will be his Secretary of State (or similar position) and that she did the VP nod because she and he both felt that she'd be in a better position in another capacity.

    What would happen then? I'd hope that if there is a plan to include Clinton in Obama's potential Presidency, the democrats would be smart enough to announce it right after the convention the same way the Republicans did with the Palin nod.
