Warming up for the Hillary 08 campaign!
Hillary Clinton really seems to believe that she has a snowball chance in hell of winning the 08 election and actually becoming America's first female president. She made sure that the democrats wouldn't run anyone who can actually compete in 04 for that reason, and now she is trying to shed away her divisive liberal stigma by claiming to be more centrist or moderate then people know her to be. Recognizing that a lot of people are no longer voting democrats because they disagree with them when it comes to "religious and moral values", Hillary has been trying to "reach out" to those potential voters by claiming to be down with religion. Imagine that! On the eve of the presidential inauguration, US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton last night embraced an issue some pundits say helped seal a second term for George W. Bush: acceptance of the role of faith in addressing social ills. In a speech at a fund-raising dinner for a Boston-based organization that promotes faith-based solutions to social problems, Clinton said there has been a "false division" between faith-based approaches to social problems and respect for the separation of church of state. "There is no contradiction between support for faith-based initiatives and upholding our constitutional principles," said Clinton, a New York Democrat who often is mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2008. As Josie already said on her blog: Ah ha! Addressing a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza, Clinton invoked God more than half a dozen times, at one point declaring, "I've always been a praying person." Ohh, really? Wow, i had Hillary all wrong. I mean she mentioned God and even said that she prays. I feel ashamed. I always thought that she was an opprutunistic, cold, calculating, power-hungry, will do anything to get ahead kind of person. Surely that must not be true, since she mentioned God 6 times and mentioned that she prays. I mean, in a country that is 80% christian and where evngelical voters provided Bush the winning 2 % of the popular vote, invoking god and saying that you pray must not have any kind of ulterior motive, Right? What's that old Proverb again? Ohh yeah : Even the devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. And if that is not enough reaching out in one week, Hillary tackeld another divisive issue in America: Abortion. She apparently wants to reach some common ground on the issue, for the sake of America of course! Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, a longtime supporter of abortion rights, said on Monday that "people of good faith" can "find common ground" in the abortion debate, the New York Times reported. She indicated that both sides should be able to agree on preventing unwanted pregnancies, and she also called abortion "a sad, even tragic choice" for many women. The New York Times noted that Sen. Clinton is "widely seen as a possible candidate for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in 2008," and it also said she "appeared to be reaching out beyond traditional core Democrats who support abortion rights. "She did so not by changing her political stands," the newspaper said, "but by underscoring her views in preventing unplanned pregnancies, promoting adoption, recognizing the influence of religion in abstinence and championing what she has long called 'teenage celibacy,'" the newspaper said. Hillary Clinton for Abstinence and Celibacy. I think it makes sense, cause when i think of Hillary Clinton, I suddenly understand why celibacy is a good option for men to have. So from now on people, please remember: Hillary Clinton= Celibacy, Abstinence and Religion! OK?
