Hillary!, that is. Here is Hillary doing what she does best, playing gullible Americans for a bunch of fools. And fools they are if they buy Hillary's latest campaign stunt. She figures if you can fool enough of the people all of the time, you can be President.
"We've got a lot to talk about tonight," the New York senator told viewers in her first Webchat. "It's amazing how new technology can bring so many of us together."
She forgot to hat tip Al Gore, how rude.
The Webchat format, also tried by Democratic candidate John Edwards this week, offers Clinton in an easy, nonconfrontational setting. A campaign aide reads her a mix of friendly questions selected from thousands submitted to the Web site, ranging from substantive topics such as Iraq and energy policy to softballs about things like her favorite movies and her exercise regimen. (emphasis added)
Here is a sample of the friendly questions:
* Erin, a self-described "20-something blogger" from San Diego, writes to her: "I am so thrilled to see that you will be publishing your own campaign blog on hillaryclinton.com. Can you tell us how you plan to further your conversation with the American people through the blog?"
* Timothy, from Honolulu, writes: "We've always admired the great job Bill and you did in shielding Chelsea from life in the fish bowl and in the process managing to raise her to be such a well-adjusted, intelligent and poised young lady. We were wondering, now that she's an adult who is accomplished in her own right, do you expect that she will be taking a more visible and active role in your upcoming campaign?"
Good grief. If there are enough of these idiots out there, and I suspect there are, Frau(d) Clinton could be our next president. As for her exercise regimen:
(She loves to be take walks and swim, but runs "like a tortoise," Clinton confesses.)
Commenter privateer at Lucianne responds:
I would wager no one has ever seen her swim----and lived to tell about it. Or wanted to live.
