Clintonstein's Monster

Good grief:
A coalition of Democrats who can't get over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton losing the presidential nomination are trying to install her as senate majority leader.
They are calling on Mrs. Clinton's fans to withhold support for the party's senate candidates across the country unless the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and the chamber's Democrats pledge to elect the former first lady to majority leader, a post currently held by Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada.

Will this PUMA hydra never die?

I never thought I'd be saying this, but poor Hillary Clinton. She just can't seem to catch a break. First her husband cheats on her and embarasses her in front of the entire world, including full TMI details of a stained blue dress. She honors her marriage vows, however, and stays married to her husband (which you'd think would make the fundies happy), and tries to work through their personal problems. She narrowly loses the Democratic nomination even after garnering more primary votes than any potential nominee before the 2008 season, and bows out gracefully (my opinion, deal with it), giving a speech endorsing her heretofore opponent that was even more rousing than any she'd given on the campaign trail, hoping to reunite her hardcore PUMA Clintonites in order to ensure a Democratic success in November.

And now these people are going to try and blackmail the DSCC in order to install her as Senate Majority Leader? Two words for you PUMA folks: Vince Foster. You're really screwing with her chances for a spot on the Supreme Court.

I don't know if you remember when the Lewinsky scandal broke, Jamie.

But as I recall, Bill's philandering suddenly became all about Hillary. What did she know? When did she know it? Did she hit him? Was her calling him "a hard dog to keep on the porch" proper? Did he cheat because she withheld sex? Should she divorce him? Is she a closeted lesbian?

To this day, it still amazes me that she became the central focus of a mistake that he made. We think we've come so far with woman's rights. Then something like Monica comes along to remind everyone that it is still always Eve's fault.
