Clinton laughs it up with press


Hillary Clinton had fun with members of the press on her plane Sunday night, commenting on her hairstyles over the years, the Saturday Night Live skits depicting her and Obama, and the fact her aide Huma Abedin often draws more attention than she does. (Photo credit: AP)

    Win Back the Press. DollyObama is just made by press and you need to win them back.

    WHY IS THIS NEWS? Has the Clinton camp finally whipped CNN into doglike submission with her phony "bias" claims?

    And, where's her flag pin?

    Great, now Hillary is getting her polls from SNL. Please end your failed candidacy while you have the option. Otherwise, the voters, the party, and the nation will make the decision for you.

    Heh... the SNL skit was pretty lame... Mike Huckabee's performance was sooo much better.

    I'm glad she can laugh at it, though. That shows the good side of her.

    Hillary's got great character. She is such a good sport when it comes to poking fun at herself (her pantsuits, her hairstyles, fashion, her "cackle", her seriousness). I've never seen any candidate that's as human as her. She would make a great president – one America would be proud of.

    The Clintons are consummate "good slavemasters".

    Blah, blah, blah...what a fake! She is so "not what I see as a leader". No sincerity; only whatever it takes to get what she wants. Her smirks, funny gestures-show who she really is....to me, she is NOT genuine....I know the difference in a strong woman and a vindictive one.....her personal side shows so clearly through all the "so-called" warm words...she's so scripted, it's not funny. At least Obama comes "real"..he may not have been bullied around by all the Republicans, but at least he brings fresh insight and hasn't been poisoned by all the backbiting and political games. He's honest, sincere, you can sense it....say what you want, any time it's news when a candidate shows their human...something is wrong.......

    bill and hillary have always tried to use the press when they need them, then shun them when they feel the dont need them. everything they do is calculated.

    Before the Obama followers get here..... let me summarize:

    How dare she smile. I have never, in my life, seen anyone stoop this low. This is just appalling. What is she doing smiling. She has no right to smile. She should be ashamed. There are people laughing with her AGAIN. How stupid are these people. If they would only listen to ME, they would understand how much everyone hates, hates, hates her. She is evil..... Ah yep, that just about wraps it up. sigh.

    Wasn't it the Clinton camp that accused Obama of using the picture of Obama in traditional somali attire as a "distraction" from the issues?

    But the Clinton camp joking it up with the press, that's not a distraction from the issues? How bout you spend that time telling America why you won't release your tax returns, Hillary?

    You do so well when you let the public get to know you on a personal level. Forget what the media says about you. They don't know you and they are only interested in seeing Obama succeed, for their own obvious reasons. Let the voters get to know you on a more personal level and you will do just fine.

    Where there is strenght, there is substance, there is trayectory, there is a record. She is the real deal. I hope all the Obamatrons come to realize it after they come out of their trance. Hope is not too late.
    TX, OH, VMt, PA, RI....please vote for substance.

    She's happy, sad, angry, happy, sad, angry.... So is she bi-polar or something?

    Go Hillary – do what you do best – LEAD. You are a natural leader with all the qualities that are needed to be President of the United States of America.

    I think your song should be the wonderful but never outdated:

    "God Bless America" – It suits you perfectly!!

    Hillary please don't let these awful people get you crazy. Just ignore them and continue with your detailed positive messages. And do not let the opposition get away with any falsehoods. It is amazing that there are so many people that are so snowed by this Obama that it scares me. I can't even watch him.

    With all this talk of change I want to know is any candidate on either party running on the basis that everything is good so lets not change anything.

    Every politician that runs a campaign is based on change, so its all about the specifics. I have heard Hillary's for a long time, and I am in favour of the majority of them. I haven't really heard Obama's, so how is his change going to work?
