More on Hillary

I just can't shut up on this subject just now. It's a problem. But then again, I'm not the only one with this particular curse. David Limbaugh's latest article is about the Clinton Campaign. He's worried that people might not realize that Clinton is a far leftist.
Though we will continue to see abundant evidence apparently to the contrary between now and November 2008, Hillary knows exactly who she is and what she wants. The open question is: How many naive or uninformed voters can she fool without permanently estranging herself from her natural soulmates on the far left?
It's interesting how people can look at a person differently. My take on Hillary Clinton is that when she makes feints to the left, she's being a little phony, while her centrist statements, pro-business and pro-war statements strike me as more sincere. I note, for example, that her "socialized medicine" was essentially a give away to the insurance companies.

There's also this interesting passage, which reveals a bit of why Conservatives aren't keen on Ms. Clinton.
In the past, Hillary has vacillated between righteous indignation at any expectation that she should be home "baking cookies" and her acquired awareness that she must not go too far and project herself as cold and heartless.
You'd think there'd be some difference between staying home baking cookies and being cold and heartless - but not to Limbaugh Conservatives. To Conservatives of a certain stripe a strong woman is, almost by definition, cold and heartless. Which reveals a bit more about them than it does about Ms. Clinton.
