Once Upon A Time...Reinventing Hillary

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Hillary. She was a very shrewd, articulate president, oh sorry, I mean First Lady. Anyway, this woman discerned that she was in a war, one that pitted her against a vicious and insidious enemy: the "vast right-wing conspiracy."

Hillary was so concerned about what this enemy would do to her political aspirations, oh sorry, I mean to try to hurt her husband and the American people, that she moved into an offensive posture. This meant that she, in the best interest of the people, of course, would lash out at the bad guys--Newt Gingrich, Kenneth Starr and the gang. She was simply trying to protect the American people. She hated having to do it, but it was really to protect the little people from the bad guys.

She traveled the world, speaking even in China, about the values she believed were so important. Abortion was a right for all women. Health care was a right for all people. The federal government could take the best care of the people. Based on the way she and her husband, the President, treated the military, it was obvious that defense and the men and women of the armed forces just weren't priority for them, oh I mean, for the nation. It was a time of peace after all, right? Republicans were always so uptight about all that stuff. Worried for no reason at all. Osama who?

After she and her husband trashed the office, oh I mean, left the Office, she ran for an elected position in New York, because she had always felt a strong connection to the people of New York. Why else would you run for office in a place where you've never lived? Silly to question any other reason to want to be Senator in one of the most powerful states in the Union. Of course she cared about New York.

She'd been very busy doing the work of the people, with her only desire being to serve the wonderful people of New York. She was so busy that after 9/11, she could only made it to one or two of the memorial services for those who fell on that tragic day. She was a very busy woman, you know.

After the presidential election of 2004, Hillary began changing. The election made it clear that the vast majority (80%) of those who voted for President Bush did so with morals and values on the top of their list of priorities. Well, since Hillary cares so much about the people, she too began to care about values and morals. How do we know? Suddenly, that's what she talked about.

Hillary began seeing things differently, perhaps from the eyes of the people she loved so dearly. She now talked about the Bible and said that the Democratic Party had more in common with Jesus than did the Republicans, because Jesus helped the poor. She discovered a newfound compassion and conviction about abortion, calling it "tragic" every time it takes place. She even chastised her own party for being weak on defense. Hillary was seeing a new way.

As part of her progressively changing views, Hillary began sharing the stage with some of her husband's greatest political enemies. She seems to have found harmony with people like Newt Gingrich and Bill Frist. She has even parted from leaders of her own party in saying that she would vote to confirm Judge John Roberts, the president's nominee to the Court. It's truly miraculous.

Now, there's talk about her running for president in a few years. Hillary really doesn't want to be at the forefront of attention. She and her husband have always hated getting so much attention. She doesn't want that kind of power, even though something deep down inside her feels like she already knows what it's like to be a president.

But, she would only consider the bid if she's forced to, effectively sacrificing her own desire for a quiet and peaceful life for the good of the country.

Her story continues to unfold. And, we'll be watching it here at Just A Woman. So, stay tuned.


Okay, I hope you don't mind a little sarcasm once in a while. I'm sure there will be more to see and more to talk about as we watch this Extreme Political Makeover. I believe that people can genuinely change. Unfortunately, we have many post-election-2004 examples of people of a more liberal persuasion suddenly finding a more conservative-looking moral and religious concern.

I'm disgusted by any sort of manipulation. But, it really gets under my skin when there's an appearance of using faith to justify political views, as opposed to what I believe our President has done--base his politics on a moral, religious foundation.

I don't claim to be able see into anyone's heart and true motives. All I can do is judge the actions based on the patterns. As of now, the patterns don't look good to me. I have questions about her integrity, her vision for our nation's future as well as the implications a Hillary presidency would have on the military and on the international scene.

There will be much more to say about Hillary in the coming days. But, for now, this is just one woman's perspective on this particular issue of the day.

I think it was a brilliant piece! I love sarcasm.
Hillary is doing her best to convince America that she isn't the oppotunistic extreme left wing liberal that she is.

Do you suppose that is because she knows that America isn't really a liberal country?

If she does get elected president on the strength of her radical move to the right, she will immediately revert back to her socialists views and attempt to create a socialist state.

Along the lines of "Reinventing Hillary", I want to know how she hides her Adam's Apple so well.

Most of my Republican friends are excited about the prospect of running against Hillary in 08. But I think they underestimate her. Yes she is liberal,shrill, devisive and an opportunist. But for some reason many people actually like her. Let's also not forget that many women are eager for the chance to vote for a women regardless of her politics.

I hope we don't let our dislike of Hillary cloud our judgement. The GOP needs to take Hillary seriously and we also need to offer a good alternative to vote for. Otherwise, we'll be just like the Democrats in 04, waking up the morning after the election wondering how we lost to such an evil candidate.

You are right Fetz......She will be a Hell of an opponent.

Which is why Condi must be the VP choice.

Give the women on the fence another one to think about, and turn some blacks as well.......Which they are going to do more and more anyway, as they can't take the "Party Against God" anymore.

I am starting to like Hilary more and more each day.
I think she will make a fine Prez...

Like Mark said, that was just brilliant. Loved the sarcasm myself.
Personally I am actually starting to wonder if I actually want her to win. Because she could be the final straw in getting the Liberals and Democrats out of the way once and for all.

Of course I don't want to sound like vincentt as I am sure my reason for actually considering her is totally different than his. I don't want to see her elected because I believe in her or even think she could be the manager of a 7-11. My reasoning is because I think the American People would end up calling for her resignation within the first six months.

Of course during those six months she would do her best to change the country. Okay, going to be serious now. I don't want to see her win regardless. She is a power hungry nut. She is so two-faced that it isn't funny.

I have nothing against a female President. I will most likely vote for Condi if she runs. So don't think my being against Hillary is because of her sex. It's because she wants nothing more than to destory the American way of life. Heck she advocates our daughters and sisters killing their unborn babies just because they want to.

Hillary will be the end of the democratic party if she wins. You can mark my words on that. That is the only light at the end of the tunnel when I hear about her most likely running.

And if you consider yourself Conservative or Republican and you actually believe that she is being honest with her speechs about God and Family then you really need to go to the local mental health clinic because you have issues.

As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't believe that she had changed if she started blowing up abortion clinics.
She seems to think that she can shift her positions drastically without admitting that she was ever wrong, and she expects us not to notice. (She thinks Americans are stupid.)
Everything that this woman has ever done in her whole life has been a political calculation,right down to marrying the man she married, and having a child, because she saw a poll that said that candidates were more politically viable if they have children.
She is the most successful coat-tail surfer in history, and she cannot be trusted.

Great post! (Your's always are!!)

I had the opporunity to sut next to Hillary in an airplane once. SDhe was sitting in the aisle seat when I boarded and I had the window seat. As I eased past her to sit down, she lifted her legs and moved them to the side to accomodate me. When she did that, her nuts popped out!

Mark.... You are too crazy dude.

Tugboatcapn... That's what gets me. Hillary rides tailcoats and never has really had to work for anything. Condi has worked her way up the ladder by her own accord, yet who does the media fawn over as a "self made woman"? Crazy isn't it?

Yes, Mark, you ARE crazy! Where do you get this stuff? Don't answer that.

I think we all (except for vincentt) can see the political maneuvering going on here. And, yes, Fetzer and Pero, she will absolutely give the Republican candidate a serious run for his/her money.

The mystery about the Clintons is the magical charisma. They have gotten away with, well, things NO conservative could have or should have.

And, to add a little controversy here. I will be writing on this in the future. For now, I'll just say that I'm not so sure I want a woman president. I think Condi is amazing. If anyone can do it (and do it well, it is Condi). But, I'm not sure I think it's the best thing for a woman or for our country, especially in a time of war.

I can see where you are coming from Lores. I can see some potential issues with having a Woman President during wartime. However that being said, I know of a lot of women that I had rather have in office during wartime than some of the bleeding hearts guys (Dick Durbin anyone)...

I think the right woman could handle not only the political aspect but the military aspect as well. My only true fear about having a woman president is that unfortunely many countries (even more so with Arab countries) look down on women still. I have some worry that this could cause them to overlook the power that a female president would have.

You are right the Clintons do have some mystic about them. I hate to say they have a Camelot mystic, but indeed it does rival what was seen around the Kennedy administration.

I do not think it wise either for Conservatives to automatically dismiss the challenge of beating Hillary in 2008. It will not be an easy task to say the least. Not because Hillary is qualified but because of the very mystic Lores mentioned. That coupled with the fact that the left controlled media will be working overtime 24/7 to hype up Hillary.

Even though a true conservative will not fall for Hillary's "change of clothes" so to speak. I am sure that there are plenty of independents and moderates out there that could be drawn to her new political look.

Lores, I was counting on you to write on the pros/cons of having a woman president. Don't make us wait too long!

And really, would Hillary even count as a "woman" president? Would that make Bill (officially) the First Lady? :)

Lores, My mother would agree with you that maybe a woman wouldn't be a good choice right now. She is a very strong and intelligebnt woman but she believes that women, as a rule, are too emotional to be in positions of authority. Personally, I think that if a woman is anything like my mother she would be better than most men at being president.
So, you are in very good company.
