Bully-proofed by "35 years" of "public service"?

"what the American people are looking for right now is straight answers to tough questions, and that is not what we've seen out of Senator Clinton on a host of issues."
- Senator Barack Obama answering a question fielded to him by CNN plant Wolf Blitzer at last night's Democratic debate in Nevada

"I don't mind taking hits on my record, on issues, but when somebody starts throwing mud, at least we can hope that it's both accurate and not right out of the Republican playbook,"
-Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton

Other excerpts from today's Washington Post:
Asked whether she supports giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants -- the question she flubbed on Oct. 30 -- Clinton simply said "No,"

Wishy-washy flip-flop. Translation: She was sorta for it before she is now against it.

Clinton talked at length about her role as a female candidate, saying she had not played the "gender card." Pressed to explain why, in recent weeks, she had described the campaign as a "boys' club," Clinton paused and looked at the questioner. "Well, it is clear, I think, from women's experiences that from time to time, there may be some impediments," she said.

Asked whether she is exploiting her status as a woman, Clinton said: "I'm not exploiting anything at all. I'm not playing, as some people say, the gender card here in Las Vegas. I'm just trying to play the winning card." She added: "People are not attacking me because I'm a woman. They're attacking me because I'm ahead."

C'mon, Hillary.....keep it simple. Keep it simple.

Just a wee little blog post, throwing mud right out of my "Republican Playbook".

After all: I'm a Republican plant off the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Plantation. And you know what I'm talking about.

I got through the first 30 minutes of the re-broadcast - not gonna miss Grey's Anatomy for those twerps - and had to switch the channel. Blech. It was kinda interesting that Edwards bombed so badly with the audience.

Wolf Blitzer is still a Clinton tool.

Karen,
You didn't miss much of the love fest. I didn't watch either. Cleaning my kitchen was much more thrilling.

Wordsmith,
Great post! I love the editing you do with your pictures as well.

I didn't watch it either. Watching oil-based paint dry would be more exciting!

We're all throwing mud from our "Republican Playbooks" Wordsmith. LOL! Here's some more: It seems Hillary has been taking pointers right out of Kerry's playbook. She's proven herself to be as adept at flip-flopping as he is.

I wonder if they will be selling Hillary Flip Flops yet.

I still have my Kerry Flip Flops, wonder what I could get for them on Ebay?

Cool post.

The MSM interpretation is that Hill's got her mojo back!

I'll update with a link to your post - thanks!

We're thinking along parallel lines again. But you beat me to it.

I just posted something similar.

karen,

I think Edwards is the one out of the top 3 Democratic candidates who I am least favorable to.

rivka,

Thanks. As you see from Mike's post, I taught him everything he knows about the simple online captioning.

gayle,

Playing in the mud can sometimes be fun.

marie,

I think it is an obvious distinction between someone changing their position, over time because they have grown through experience; and someone making decisions based upon how it politically polls, without core beliefs.

skye,

*blush*

God, how I love you!

donald,

Thanks for the link up.

mike,

I linked to your post. Good work!

Gee Skye, I thought I was the only one....LOL No hunk here, move along...

The debate should have been called a debacle. Freak show that it was...

How does one contact the Wordsmith (email/contact form)? Maybe Skye knows...heh

Kucinich won it just as Ron Paul has won every GOP debate.
