Opening Arguments


Everybody seems to be on the Billary Watch now:

Amazingly, neither party seems to fully recognize the contours of the road map. In the Democrats' case, the full-throttle emergence of Billary, the joint Clinton candidacy, is measured mainly within the narrow confines of the short-term horse race: Do Bill Clinton's red-faced eruptions and fact-challenged rants enhance or diminish his wife as a woman and a candidate?

This seems a little unfair to me. This time around, after all, Hillary is the candidate and William Jefferson is the secondary part of the two-for-one package. So shouldn't it be Hilliam?

Since we're talking about Clinton names, when did "Rodham" fall out of use? Seems like I hadn't heard it during the first Clinton campaign -- but, then, I wasn't paying close attention. Then, at some point, I routinely heard Hillary referred to as "Hillary Rodham Clinton". And now, I don't.

It's inconsequential, but still, I'm curious.

Doug, she only stresses the "Rodham" thing when she's not in need of Bill. She uses that to distance herself from him when necessary. Come to think of it, now might be a good time to start using it again.

If Hillary is the ultimate nominee I am officially done with the democratic party - do not count on me for support financial or physical nor take my vote for granted

I am so sick of the media circus surrounding the clintons and obama, while the few candidates like Edwards who are talking about the real issues are virtually ignored.

I long for a credible third party to emerge and break this duopoly
