Smartest Woman in America?

Situation: Democratic presidential “hopeful” (might as WELL be “candidate” at this point) Hillary Clinton turned in a lackluster performance at a debate last Tuesday, and her people immediately began a smear campaign aimed primarily at debate moderator Tim “Just A Darn Nice Guy” Russert. They accused him of lobbing unfair questions at her, particularly one aimed at records of conversations between her husband, then President Bill Clinton, and herself, from her White House years. Mr. Clinton had ordered all such memos to be classified until 2012.When asked if she would release those memos to public scrutiny, Mrs. Clinton stammered a rather weak answer, stating that it wasn’t her call to make, that the National Archives were working as fast as they could to process thousands of documents, and basiclly refusing to give a straight yes-or-no answer, even when pressed with a follow-up question from Russert. None of the other candidates went on the attack afterword, even though the worm was dangling within easy reach of all of them.

Watch the debate (if you have a few brain cells you don’t mind losing) and read the transcript HERE (click).

Analysis: While presidential privilege DOES protect the documents in question quite legally, one cannot help but wonder what Hillary stands to gain from refusing to ask her hubby to make them public. Since one of her largest claims to the throne IS her experiences during her eight year reign-of-terror between 1992 and 2000, why would she NOT want records of said experiences on record as proof of her competency?

Unless, of course, she has something to hide… Hmm…

Fallout: Will Tim Russert go the way of Bernard Goldberg? According to a damage-control conference call with Clinton supporters, he may well be if he doesn’t wise up and play by Hillary’s rules. Read about that HERE (click).

One caller from Oklahoma City said that “the questions … were designed to incite a brawl,” and that Russert’s and Brian Williams’s moderating was “an abdication of journalistic responsibility.”

Another said Russert “should be shot,” before quickly adding that she shouldn’t say that on a conference call. (emphasis added)

No, you should lie. Take a lesson from the Clintons. Never say what you mean. Who would vote for you if you did?

Ladies and gents, let the implosions begin. Mwa, ha, haa.
