Hillary, Hillary, Hillary

There is lots of commentary on Hillary today. I have a piece at Townhall today in which I respond to Michael Reagan's call for Democrats to nominate Hillary so that the Republican attack machine can have another go at her.

Reagan recently wrote, "I know you Democrats don't want to do us Republicans any favors, but just this once let us have our way. Give us the opportunity to give the Republican attack machine another shot at Hillary Clinton. Let her coast to victory in the primaries. Then we'll take it from there."...

Michael Reagan wrote "Republicans want to have the honor of exploiting the lady's negatives for all the world to see. She likes to boast that she has faced the worst the so-called Republican attack machine can throw at her and has survived. Let me tell you, she ain't seen nothing yet. We have long memories and a huge arsenal of ammunition to fire at her when the time comes."

He is absolutely right about that. There is plenty of ammunition there and there are many Republicans who would genuinely enjoy it, too. But even if the "attack machine" did a first rate job of revealing every questionable, unethical or illegal thing Hillary Clinton had either said or done, I doubt it would make a difference. Or at least not the difference Republicans would like.

She is about as well known as a person can be and those who know her love her or they hate her. What the Republicans would reap in bad media for going back into Clinton attack mode would far exceed any benefits gained from exposing the details of the various Clinton scandals.

Jack Kemp at The American Thinker recently said the following about a comment he read at Lucianne.com, "You've heard of Blue Dog Democrats? Now we have Clinton-supporting Blue Dress (of Monica Lewinsky fame) Democrats who will vote for Hillary and the return of Bubba to power."

Just remember, were it not for the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal, Hillary Clinton would almost certainly not be sitting in the U.S. Senate today. The Clintons seem to flourish in the midst of scandal.

Read the rest to find out what I think might push Hillary's poll numbers over 50 percent.

More Hillary -- Jonah Goldberg has an excellent piece at NRO asking Hillary the questions those in the media should be asking her, but won't.

After the Philadelphia debate, your campaign tried to explain away your lackluster performance by implying your male competitors were unfairly "piling on" because you're a woman. Do you really think sexism is an issue here? Which of your Democratic opponents are the most sexist? Will you play this card with foreign leaders if you run into trouble as commander-in-chief?

You keep saying that Social Security has lost 14 years of solvency on President Bush's watch. In 2000, your husband's last year in office, the program's trustees said it would be solvent until 2037. Now they say it will be solvent until 2041. As the most serious female candidate for president we've ever had, aren't you setting a bad example by not being able to do math?
You've repeatedly denounced Halliburton's "no-bid contracts." Did you object when the Clinton administration awarded a similar non-competitive contract to Halliburton for reconstruction work in the former Yugoslavia? If not, why not? If so, why didn't your husband listen?

Can you explain -- without accusing anyone of anti-Asian bigotry -- why so many Chinese criminals keep giving you and your husband piles of cash?

Read it all.

Even more Hillary from David Limbaugh and Kathleen Parker.

The Democrats are thinking the exactly same thing about Guiliani. Although the situation is not quite as bad scandal-wise and he has had some actual executive experience. But that won't matter.

Don't get your hopes up, people. The MSM is going to let Hillary! skate just like the "tough NY press" did when she first ran for the Senate in 2000.

The standard media response to any GOP attack on Hillary! is going to be: those Republicans are all a bunch of meanies. How unfair of them to pick on poor, put-upon Hillary.

Hillary! always has had a glass jaw and the MSM will do their best to protect it. Remember the hissy fit she and her media allies threw when Rick Lazio walked over to her during a debate during her 2000 race? Expect a lot more of that.

Today she along with 29 other idiots in the Senate signed a letter to the president saying he can't attack Iran without they're permission. I guess all of them are using liberal 'fuzzy' math where 30 equals 51% of 100.

Dave W:

Scandals are resume enhancements for the Clintons.

The people that support her, as well as the american people by and large would give a big resounding "So What?" if any more scandals were pointed out.

Clinton is a known quantity. She is one huge scandal wrapped up in a shrieking pant-suit. It won't matter to the people that will vote for her anyways.

I don't think that she can take the presidency, but i don't think anyone cares anymore that the Clintons are scandalous. It is to be expected and it actually made the lefties like Bill all that much more after he raped and had sex with those various women. It's amazing that the feminists support Bill...

Not to be rude, but the only point i was making in the vowel scrambled comment above is that the Clintons own scandals and that no one should be suprised Hillary is the most scandalous politician sicne her husband!

I feel it was a legitimate point and didn't stray off topic!
