HILLARY ON PALIN'S NOMINATION


Sen. Hillary Clinton on Gov. Sarah Palin's nomination as Vice President:

“We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain," Clinton, the first woman to win a presidential primary, said in the statement. "While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”

While their policies would take America in the wrong direction

Wrong for liberals:

* less corruption in high places
* less debt
* smaller government
* bring back a moral standard and respect

Hillary has to keep endorsing Obama since he and the DNC promised to pay off her (over) $12 million of campaign debt.

Exactly right on policy issues, justadog.

But, Sen. Clinton gave a kind political response in acknowledging that Sarah Palin brings "an important new voice to the debate" in the presidential election. And Gov. Palin did the same in acknowledging Hillary's accomplishments in blazing the path for women in the presidential race. This is the kind of "new politics" that should be encouraged.

Sen. Clinton, having been wounded by the mainstream press and the DNC machinations against her, is showing grace to a newcomer who is up against the same sort of
snide, backstabbing she herself faced.

I think Sen. Clinton would be endorsing Sen. Obama irrespective of her campaign debt. She and he agree on tons of issues. And, She is a Democrat. That he and the DNC have not followed through on helping her retire her debt says a bunch about the character of their campaigns.

Thanks for your comment.
