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)

    Totally Agree – and VERY Disappointed on how the Press has treated Sen. Clinton vs. Sen Obama. Chris Mathews is at the top and off my list of must watch programs. Matthews always refers to Sen Clinton as 'Hillary', as many do, and always referes to BO as Sen Obama. SHAME ON YOU Press Corps!!!!

    lol... Billary will have plenty to laugh over as they soon enter the home for all retirees. Good riddance to these 2 over-blown, over-exonerated, over-appreciated, over-sympathized, over-stayed members of the DNC. Fresh blood and ideas are needed to move this country forward in the 21st century.

    Time for Hillary to step down, and support the united democratic party. She's trying to do anything just to win the votes. She supported for NAFTA in her book, and now says NAFTA is bad for America, she's saying this only because she's running for president. Also, her health care plan is a mandate, where she will go after your wages even if u can't afford it, she even said that in one of the debates. For those of us who are honest with ourselves (doesn't matter if u're a democrat/republican or independent, and doesn't matter if u're white, black, latino or asian), you know that she's been trying all the negative & dirty political tactics against Obama, just to win the votes, and she lost 11 continuously now. Even now she's continuing to degrade Obama. I am ashamed to be a former Hillary supporter. I am supporting Obama now, many of my friends, we all were supporting Hillary, but now that we see her true attitudes, we are changing our minds. We are from Ohio, and Ohio is for Obama. For people that still support Hillary, please think about it again, do u want a president that is willing to go after someone go negatively just to win your votes ? or do u want someone who really wants us all to be united & fight the common problems we are facing as Americans. Please think, don't just vote for her, because u support her, please carefully think before u vote. She in the debate almost cried, and said it was honor to be with Obama, and immediately two days after that she's going negative on Obama again. PLease support Obama. Lets come together, as united Americans, and vote for Obama. Thanks, CNN please post my comments. u never post my comments. I want to reach out to the people with my comments. Post my comments, post my comments CNN. Vote for Obama. March 4, 2008 for Obama . Texas, Ohio for Obama

    Because the media has fallen under the Obama "cult" spell, Clinton has taken a real beating in the press. I was shocked on Sunday when Clinton was not part of most of competition conversatioin. They have already decided it is Obama/McCain, although she is only 69 delegates behind and is even with Obama in the National polls. This mus be frustrating for Clinton, so it is nice to hear the wonderful heartly laugh.

    As she says, she will be okay no matter what happens. She has already placed women way ahead in the consideration for President. I ask those that are on the line, if Clinton does not win the nomination, what other woman will reach this level in the next 12 years.

    This is so staged & phony, it is a joke! Hillary must miss her private jet, now she has to mingle with the little people.

    Hurray! We love it when Hilary shows her lighter side. She is so human just like all of us.

    Hey Joe, really thoughtful, insightful comment. Are you from Texas?

    Hillary is the one we need now! We can't give this election away to the GOP again. Obama will be torn to shreds by the Republican party. He can't take any heat. I'm melting, I'm melting, I would quit now if I were Obama. What a joke he is, the little insurgent.

The S. just starting to come out on him, and quit being so flippin nice, GO AFTER HIM just like he has done and don't pay any attention to supposed to be Journalist, If they are flippin Journalist Im an AIR PLANE. I loved it yesterday when she says the sky is going to open etc., if that was Obama supporters they would believe it. HA HA Bill did not win until June hang in there we have a lot of closed primaries coming up and he doesn't do well not unless the are open to all the Republiacns coming out to vote against you, so they vote for him and they think he is doing so great, we will see how stupid they look, and to think all those people are voting for him. Those Republicans would never vote for him in the general who are they kidding.

    Scary...Hillary reminds me of people my dad used to call dragonladies...he used to say, "watch out for them, they'll turn on you in a heartbeat, chew you up, & spit you out".

    I thought I would vote for her but I don't see why an experienced candidate would continue to stage all this and the other stuff that went on over that weekend. Why should I vote for good when I have better?

    Joe, why so nasty? Are you obsessed with your hatred of her?
    Whether you support her or Obama or even McCain they all deserve your respect, because they have subjected themselves to months of ridicule just for the honor of running this great country that we all live in. Obviously it is not for the money, she as well as the rest I am sure have already spent much more than they will recieve as salary. They both obviously want what is best for the people in the USA, give them a break.

    The fear among her staff,
    Which fears she will not stop,
    Is that she's headed for
    Snip, cackle, flop.

    You guys still maintain the fraudulent myth of The Evil Karl Rove. That's hilarious at this point. What they are doing is pulling a Clinton. They coined the "Politics of Personal Destruction" approach to politics. It has always been their way. Karl Rove is James Carville in men's clothes. Get over your misplaces self-righteousness. The emperor's new clothes don't please you? Welcome to the bigs.

    We all know haughty Hillary is a phony--but she thinks she is fooling us.

    Someone should tell her that a stranger can talk to you for 5 minutes and know you better than you know yourself.

    Guess the cackle is on you Miss HILLARity!!

    Oh, why did you take down the other puppet picture of her?

    1. She's a follower more than a leader. (Is that a characteristic we want in our presidenct?)
    2. She still can't give a credible reason why she gave W the authority to go to war. (Hmmm....see #1. Or worse yet, she can be fooled by the most simple man.)
    3. She still can't give a credible reason why she voted against the Levin amendment.
    4. How her votes have more to do with hedging her political bets than with principle. (No surprises here.)
    5. Why she can't explain why it took 2 years of the war going south before she started speaking up against it.
    6. Why she waited for Edwards and Obama to reveal their health care plan before releasing hers (Now, THAT....shows confidence! Ha!).
    7. How her campaign works relentlessly to shut down legitimate journalistic vetting of her record.
    8. How she has been labeled as a 'practitioner of systematic caution with 'no big ideas'. (We don't know about this article telling us why because (drum roll please)....the Clinton camp killed the story.)
    That's okay, sometimes these things take time. A strategist knows you have to know precisely when to drop the bomb.....
    Are you sure you're voting for Hillary, or are you voting for Bubba? I'm sorry to break it to you, but Obama is much more intelligent than Bill.
