How can we miss them if they won't go away?

One of the hallmarks of Hillary Clinton's campaign for coronation the presidency has been her demands that she not be held accountable for any of the misdeeds of her husband's tenure, while reaping the benefits that might be derived from the good parts. And for some reason, a lot of people seem willing to indulge her.

For example, the other day Kevin pointed out that Hillary's "general counsel" is a former staffer of her husband's who was -- as Kevin so nicely put it -- "knee-deep" in most of his scandals.

For another example, I happen to be on Hillary's mailing list. (I have no idea how I'm considered a "friend of Hillary's," but if they want to keep giving me ammunition, I'll keep shooting it.) In the last week or so, I've gotten e-mails from James Carville, Madeleine Albright, and Bill Clinton himself (twice!!) touting how wonderful Hillary would be as president.

If she wants to fill her campaign with these worthies, then I think that it's fair game to bring up their past accomplishments -- Ms. Albright's in particular.

(See below the fold for Ms. Albright's missive, and a rather appropriate video)

Dear Friend,

I'll never forget that moment in 1995 when I watched Hillary Clinton stand up in Beijing and declare that "women's rights are human rights." In front of the whole world, Hillary spoke out for every woman who suffered from inequality, injustice, and repression. Every person in the hall knew she was making history. Her act of courage still reverberates through women's lives.

I've known Hillary for nearly 20 years. I've stood side-by-side with her as she took on the fight for women's rights at home and abroad, and let me tell you: no one will stand up for all of us as she will. She is the experienced leader this country needs.

Over the years, I have seen Hillary's deep commitment to improving the lives of women and children. Now it is time for us to show our commitment to her. Will you join me in supporting her campaign's "One Week, One Million" effort?

I remember what it was like to be the first woman secretary of state of this country. Have you seen the look in the eyes of young women at Hillary's campaign rallies? Can you sense the thrill that comes with knowing their first vote in a presidential election could elect America's first woman president?

And what a remarkable woman we're putting forward into this historic moment: strong, smart, experienced, and deeply committed to the values you and I share.

The very first day of her presidency, Hillary will transform America's role in the international community because of the deep admiration she has long enjoyed on the world stage. She will restore the respect that is the foundation of our alliances and the source of our strength.

Don't let this opportunity pass by. Don't stand on the sidelines as Hillary walks through the critical early weeks of her amazing journey.

Support Hillary's "One Week, One Million" campaign right now.

Thank you so much for acting early to get Hillary's campaign -- and America's future -- moving forward.

Sincerely,

Madeleine Albright

I'm sorry, but does any woman here feel this "reverberation" of which Albright rapsodizes?
Of course not! That paragraph has to be the biggest avalanche of bulls**t ever written. The fact that a former Secretary of State wrote it in all seriousness is staggering.

It's like she's channeling Oprah in this second excerpt. It's all about being "inspired". Something about the "look in the eyes" comment frightens me: these "inspired" women sound like what the hordes of Hitler supporters must have looked like when the Fuhrer spoke at those massive, May Day parade-style rallies. It speaks of being entranced with a Cult of Personality, and not discernment.

Madeleine Not-Too-Bright gives me many reasons to find Hillary wanting, but this one stands out: Hillary still believes that a**hats like Madeleine are the people to run with in the post-9/11 age. For that transgression of common sense alone she has disqualified herself as a legitimate Presidential candidate.

She's a "September 10th Politician" ignorant of the realities of a September 11th world.

And I'll never forget the day Hillary Clinton kissed Suha Arafat after Suha accused Israel of increasing the cancer rates among Palestinian children.

I'll also never forget Bill Clinton pardoning terrorists to help Hillary get elected to her Senate seat.

Old Coot:

Wonder if she has nightmares about the women that Slick Willy raped, Juanita Broddrick for one.

Here's a part of what Ms. Broaddrick said during Hillary!'s campaign for senate:

What did you mean, Hillary? Were you referring to my keeping quiet about the assault I had suffered at the hands of your husband only two weeks before? Were you warning me to continue to keep quiet? We both know the answer to that question. Yes, I can answer Brit Hume's question. You are the same Hillary that you were twenty years ago. You are cold, calculating and self-serving. You cannot tolerate the thought that you will soon be without the power you have wielded for the last eight years. Your effort to stay in power will be at the expense of the state of New York. I only hope the voters of New York will wake up in time and realize that Hillary Clinton is not an honorable or an honest person.

You can learn much more about that Here.

True enough she did make "history." But not what was intended or implied.

The reality is she blamed any and everything but a two-timing husband for hos marital indiscretions.

And at the same time sold out the "I am women, I an strong" movement by standing by her man instead of being an example of a truly strong woman and tossing Slick Willie in the nearest shitcan and getting on with life.

All with a jaundiced eye towards holding an office, any office, in the future.

With all Hillary's done for womyn - "inspiring" them, and . . . well, whatever else - it is confounding that Amanda Marcotte would have signed on with John Edwards' campaign instead.

It's gotta be the pantsuits. They scream, "Seventies retro-chic!"

To better appeal to today's dumb young slut-on-the-go, she needs to update her wardrobe with low-rise jeans, bare midriff, belly-button piercing, and perhaps a strategically placed tattoo or two.

Oh, and also she needs to drop Albright like she's hot (even though she's not). She looks too much like Ross Perot's crazy Aunt, and needs to stay in the attic.

JLawson:

Nah, there's plenty of time for the voters to forget the negatives. I think the average voter only has about a six-month attention span, that's why they keep electing the same people who make the same promises over and over again, despite the fact that none of the promises ever get kept!

There's no reason to bring Bill into anything really. Hillary has enough skeletons of her own.

Her disasterous healthcare plan
Her memory lapses on where she put those files
Her foul mouth
Her outward disdain for anyone in military uniform
Her antagonist, sanctimonious commentary
Her pictures with the likes of Jose Cabrera
Her involvement in Whitewater
She and Bill's looting of the White House upon departure
Etc.

The fact that Hillary had a clear hand in much of Bill's presidency is merely a side-note.
