An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton pushed back hard yesterday against calls for her to withdraw from the presidential race, with aides saying she remains more determined than ever to remain in the contest until the end of the primary season.
Allies of Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) have sought to increase pressure on Clinton (N.Y.) to drop out of the race in recent days, arguing that, because of his lead in pledged delegates, her only path to the Democratic nomination lies in a divisive campaign that drags to the party’s convention Aug. 25-28 in Denver. Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) yesterday offered what may have been the starkest challenge to Clinton from a prominent Obama supporter, saying in an interview with Vermont Public Radio that she should avert a potentially bloody and ultimately futile battle by stepping aside.
Oddly enough, I’m gaining a bit of respect for the Shrilldebeast. I think it’s rather admirable that she is resisting the media and the farther left wing hacks. I hope she does stay in it for the long haul. No, not because of “Operation Chaos”, or because I’ve lost my mind and become a Clinton supporter, but because this is the way the political process SHOULD work.
The media CHOSE John McFeingold to be the Republican nominee. They did all in their power to make sure a REAL conservative would not win in the end. Now, they are doing the same on the Dhimmi side. It just ain’t right! The media, and their talking heads, should not be controlling our political process, yet, this year, they have pushed THEIR agenda so hard, touting what they believe will get them what they want in the long run. One day, they push the war in Iraq, the next, it’s the borders, right now, it’s the economy, which they claim is so bad, only he who must not be middle named can save us. What hog wash!
For one thing, contrary to what they are shouting from the tree tops, we are in a slow down, NOT a recession. Unfortunately, a large majority of Americans buy into their fear, and their vote will reflect it.
So, on that note, I really hope the woman continues her battle. Her opponent has NO business being in this race to begin with! Besides, it makes for interesting idjit box viewing!
