Campaign Circus: Hillary Clinton MIA from the midterms

Washington (CNN) – Election Day is here. The rhetoric has been intense, interesting and, shall we say, passionate. Here are some things you might have missed.

Where in the world is ... Hillary Clinton?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, arguably one of the best campaigners out there, is noticeably absent from the 2010 midterm campaign trail, the British newspaper Daily Telegraph reports. So where is she? Asia.

Two days late and a vote short

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the Rock the Vote group took out a full page ad in Colorado State University's student newspaper - the Rocky Mountain Collegian - urging its readers to vote on November 2. The only problem? The paper printed "November 4" instead. It has since issued a correction.

    She cant campaign as secretary of state. Has nothing to do with her wanting to stay out of the midterms.

    You are an idiot. Before reporting you should do your homework. Hillary Cliton is the Secretary of State. It is against the law for the Secretary of State to campaign.

    In 2008, Obama and the Democrats totally misread their election win – voters wanted "change" in Washington, not a fundamental change to our republic. So today, November 2nd, 2010, voters across this nation will reject the Socialist agenda of Obama, Pelosi and Reid, and we will vote overwhelmingly for Republicans. And then, "hope" will return from coast to coast.

    She's been busy pulling together her primary challenge for 2012. Obozo is a goner and everybody knows it.

    You also notice the Democrats have been keeping Pelosi out of sight also. I bet they sure do wish she was a Republican today. lol

    "Where in the world is ... Hillary Clinton?"

    Ahh, MAYBE – travelling ALL OVER THE WORLD!!! If she was OUT THERE campaigning also, the far-right non-COMPROMISERS would argue "WHO IN THE HELL IS WATCHING THE HOUSE or MAINTAINING BUSINESS!!! Stop making SOMETHING out of NOTHING!!!

    This world is going to POT and I will smoke to that (if it was LEGAL)!!!!

    This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message – PLEASE ignore the SIDESHOW brought to you by CNN and GET OUT AND VOTE!!!

    Just another Democrat trying to Distance themselves from Obama. She wants nothing to do with the loss that is about to happen and hence is not trying to rally her base

    Excuse me but isn`t she Secretary of State? When was the lastime you saw a member of the Prsident`s CABINENT on the camapign trail. NEVER.

    Unlike some Republicans like McCain, McConnell, Boehner that have been constantly campaigning, for 5 and 2 years respectively, DEMOCRATS do the DAY JOB they were hired to do.

    What you clowns in the media should have been focusing on is how much time McConnell spent trying to defeat the President as compared to his time serving the interests of Kentuckians.

    The Democrats have realized that Hillary Clinton is not the most exciting politician to put in front of people. They have decided to go the exact other direction and try to get enthusiasm to their voters. Hillary's speeches inspire euthenasianism...they are so boring with insincere rhetoric that people lose their will to live.

    If you want to see enthusiasm, visit a Sarah Palin rally. That's politics from the heart and the mind, not the TelePrompTer.

    Clinton skipped town so her face would not be associated with the Massacre of the Moonbats.
