How does the Romney ad using video of her make Hillary Clinton feel?

Always with the feelings. Hillary Clinton — though being a woman — chooses not to talk about feelings. She goes straight for the spin: "Well, you know, I am out of politics. I haven't seen any of the ads that you're talking about. But I have to say it's a waste of money. Everybody knows I ran against President Obama in 2008, that's hardly news. Everybody knows we ran a hard fought campaign and he won. And I have been honored to serve as his Secretary of State...."

Least believable statement:

Least believable statement?

From the moment she took breath until she reached the end of her blathering. To quote the slam on Lillian Hellman, every word Hillary says is a lie, including "and" and "the."

The biggest, and most important question for Hillary at the moment, was how she felt when the Egyptians yelled "Monica, Monica, Monica" at her.

All of the above.

Went with 3, because, the way she's letting herself go, by age 70 (2016), she'll look 10 years older, but the most unbelievable part of that quote is, "And I have been honored to serve as his Secretary of State".

What she meant was, "This is MY Administration and that fucking (fill in) bastard* stole it from me".

* As in, "fucking Jew bastard".

Without reading any intent into it, I thought it was a decent, straightforward statement. And I am not a big fan of Ms Clinton.

"And I have been honored to serve as his Secretary of State".

She is, and she isn't. It would be interesting to know what the details of her deal with the Obama organization was to get her to take the job.

On the other hand, I probably prefer to not know and have a reasonable prospect of living a few more years.

Except that she can't make a decision to save her life.

Or her career.

I believe the phrase goes, "Keep your friends close - and your enemies closer".

WV "byeUnit" What John Bobbit said after he looked down after he woke up.

What the HECK is that about. "though being a woman chooses not to talk about feelings."

What does "being a woman" have to do with it? A PERSON either chooses to respond to a question about feelings as it is asked--or not. How many press conferences have the reporters asking, "How do you feel about...." Fuck's sake, there's no significance in being a woman and framing her answer the way she did.

What is she supposed to do, warble "Feelings" every time she gets a question with that word in it?

I'm also impatient with commenting on how a political figure looks. A couple blogs ago, it was how Hillary looked more attractive in black and white. Then it was Romney in color, "glowing," Who the fuck cares? Why SHOULD anyone care?

What is this, a society blog?

The significance of a person is in what they do and say, not whether they are having a good hair day, or "glowing."

At least, that's how I feel.

If you actually read through this comment, thanks for letting me blow off steam.
