Hillary Is All The Rage

Obama's nomination all but officially sealed up, her 20 million dollar loan barking loud, this woman Hillary Clinton looks all fired up and ready to go: she is on on all cylinders. Somebody tell her to slow down a bit. The end is near. And she might want to take a week off before she jumps onto the Obama bandwagon.

Hillary has come a long way as a person, and she has brought the women of America and the women of the world a long way with her. My favorite story about Hillary is she shows up in this remote village in India as First Lady and gets surrounded by the local women who tell her, you have no idea what it means to us that you are here.

Hillary is a complete woman. She has worked, she has raised a family. Some would say she has managed to raise a husband. As First Lady of Arkansas back in the 1980s she once said, "If I were to not kick Bill Clinton's ass every morning, he would not amount to anything."

We Can Put Hillary On The Ticket, But What Are We Going To Do With Bill Clinton?
