Hell, apparently, just froze over. A group of Republicans dissatisfied with what they perceive as a dearth of anti-immigration rhetoric from the right claims to have found what they’re looking for in… Hillary. And are supporting her for president in 2008.
We will sit still no longer. Why support Hillary Clinton you ask? Let’s be crystal clear. We would much rather be supporting a Republican, however, Senator Clinton is the only national figure who will most probably run for president in 08, who is speaking truth. A hard truth. Many of us have fallen into the same trap as you over the years. Hillary is a radical. Hillary is a liberal. Is she left of the social positions many of us have? You bet. But then compare her social positions with say a Rudy or McCain, the probable Republican nominees and it is a wash.
Speaking of Hillary, enlighten me here. I’ve always been mystified by the right’s aversion to her. She’s smart, forthright, and totally inoffensive. There’s nothing arrogant or condescending about her. Maybe I’m wrong, but is the far right’s dislike of her solely because she’s female? It seems hard to imagine that a man with a similar demeanor would engender such fervent dislike. What is it about her that I’m not seeing?
