No offense, Lynn, but I won't be giving Hillary a penny. She voted for this immoral, illegal war, has never apologized for it, has never really admitted she was wrong, she actually tried to float a constitutional amendment against flag-burning!.. She has no platform, no vision, and no stated goals to help the middle class. Other than the bald grab for political power for her and the "Big Dog", she has no burning reason to seek the presidency.

Oh well, somebody had to say it.

(Ducking for incoming missiles).

Shoephone,

If I had the money right now, I'd go to this. I want to hear as many of these folks as possible. Part of what I like is noticing how they are or are not impacting each other, borrowing from each other, leading each other. It's a fascinating process. I might have my preference already but I don't want to let that interfer with really seeing where each of the these brave and confident people want to go, how and who they listen to . . . and so on.

I am so looking forward to the caucuses next February, and the discussions leading up to them so that we can really get a better picture of each of these folks.

And before that to hearing them at YearlyKos. Man, all but Hillary are coming and talking on a panel for us and taking questions.

Plus, I love listening to Bill Clinton. He is like warm honey, the way he can touch into the mood of the audience and weave that mood while he works us to hear what he wants us to hear. It is a work of art. And I don't mean that either as positive or negative.

OK, fine, Bill can charm the pants off of anyone. And has, so I hear.

But... "end welfare as we know it", NAFTA, introducing FCC rules for media consolidation, free (but not fair) trade, corporatocracy, and so on and so forth.

IMHO, he's the best *Republican* president since TR.

And the junior senator from New York is every bit the inside-the-beltway, poll-driven corporatist that he is.

If it turns out that she's the Democratic nominee -- which I fervently hope doesn't happen -- I'll suppress the gorge and vote for her. Hell, I did that twice for her husband.
