    This is what matters to Hillary:

    August 24, 2007 - WASHINGTON – "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday raised the prospect of a terror attack before next year's election, warning that it could boost the GOP's efforts to hold on to the White House.

    Discussing the possibility of a new nightmare assault while campaigning in New Hampshire, Clinton also insisted she is the Democratic candidate best equipped to deal with it.

    "It's a horrible prospect to ask yourself, 'What if? What if?' But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world," Clinton told supporters in Concord.

    "So I think I'm the best of the Democrats to deal with that," she added.

    The former first lady made the surprising comments as she explained to supporters that she has beaten back the GOP's negative attacks for years, and is ready to do so again."

    She is more concerned with winning than she is with the safety of the American people.

    Why is John increasing his shots at Clinton? Because he's a desperate housewife.

    What Edwards is doing is an act of desperation in service of his own ambitions over those of his party and his nation. He’s lost any claim to the moral high ground and the polls reflect it. If he doesn’t win Iowa, it’s all over for him.

    Someone told me he went to get a haircut. Thought he dropped out in July.

    Go figure.

    The Clinton strategy has unfolded. They wanted to make it a race between her and Obama rather than Edwards. They feel that they can win that race. They have problems with Edwards. He has that conservative mean streak that some southerners are noted for. Clinton can't run and hide. That speech from Edwards yesterday was just a preview of what she can expect in the future; more of the same. Kerry wimped out on using the mean streak during the 2004 election. He didn't have the guts to step up. He does now when it means little. If John Edwards had of been on top of the ticket in 2004, Bush would have been long gone.

    Edwards is the loser. He used his wife it didn't work, he tried but nobody cares. Sorry, you are chicken(apologized war vote-it didn't help)
    and liar like Obama(denied Michelle's venomous tongue). Those remarks proved they are not qualified for the President of our Country.
