We Love Her

No matter all the mudslings hurled at her by her critics and skeptics, but they cannot deny her exemplary progress and success as a senator. Senator Hillary Clinton is a shining star in New York as confirmed in the following extracts from the report of Adam C. Smith, the Times Political Editor, published in the Times on Christmas Day, December 25, 2007.


"She been fine"
"Actually," the Republican mused, "I'd have to say she's been okay in the Senate. She knows the issues. She's been fine."


'Fighter for New York'
"Absolutely," said Fred Dicker of the New York Post, the dean of the Capitol press corps in New York. "She's seen as a fighter for New York and is perceived as a skilled politician who's not necessarily an archetypal liberal. ... She has impressed many, many people who are Republican-oriented with her knowledge and interest in issues that matter to them."

"She's disarming, She's real, She's genuine."

Throughout her first term she constantly visited local communities, particularly in struggling Republican upstate New York, and her attention to detail showed. Local governments came to see that she was accessible and responsive to their requests for support of flood relief or economic development grants. She dug in and learned their issues.
"The term I would use for her, which I don't think we can apply to enough public officials, is that she's genuinely curious," said Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce president, Garry Douglas.
He describes himself as a "very conservative" Republican, and said Clinton would make 2008 the first time he had voted for a Democrat for president. "To get to know Hillary personally is to like her. It has moved many thousands of people upstate beyond whatever impression that may have had of her. She's disarming, she's real, she's genuine."

"We Love Her"
Peter Gregg of the New York Farm Bureau recounted Clinton's visit to the Washington County Fair last year, a vignette he said is typical of Clinton.
"Her advance people said she probably wouldn't be able to stay long, and then she literally stayed for hours. She really took a great interest in chatting with farmers and learning about what they were exhibiting," said Gregg, noting that farmers' initial skepticism of Clinton disappeared fast. "We love her."

"She's Extremely Well-prepared, Did Her Homework"

"She came in and everybody said she's this carpetbagger who just wanted a stepping stone to the White House. But then people saw that she's extremely well-prepared, did her homework, and really paid attention to upstate New York," said 66-year-old independent voter Nikole Mook, who manages book sales at the Saratoga Springs Library.

Happy Holidays With Love From Hillary Rodham Clinton



Dear Orikinla,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I'm so grateful to have your friendship and support during this time of year when we all strive to focus on those things that matter most: our family, our friends, and the desire for peace and goodwill.
As 2007 draws to a close, I am hopeful about what we can accomplish for America together. There is so much good we can do with a positive vision for change and the will to see it done.

My wish for the holidays is that I have the opportunity to make a difference for those Americans who have been invisible for too long. It means so much to know that we share that wish and are working together to change our country.

I know you share my gratitude to the members of our armed forces who are serving overseas, separated from their loved ones during the holidays. They and their families continue to make an enormous sacrifice for us all, and I wish them a safe and happy holiday.


I hope that you and your family have a joyous holiday season, full of love and good cheer. Thank you so much for all you do for our campaign.


Sincerely,






Hillary Rodham Clinton

Dear Orikinla,

I want to wish you a happy holiday season and share a fun video we just made:

Happy Holidays

Hillary has a lot of wishes for the new year, but I know that what she's hoping for most is a new beginning in our country. And we're working hard every day to make sure that in 2008, that wish comes true.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all the best to you and your family this holiday season.

The Anti-Clinton Pests

99% of those attacking Hillary Clinton online do not even know her offline and most are just pests.

It is common to see even absolute strangers running their mouths online to flame celebrities they know next to nothing about.

I have told ignorant posters that it is not compulsory to post comments.

I have seen evidence of political ignorance and intellectual illiteracy on websites attacking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton by people who were either retards or dullards at the same age when she was already showing her brilliance and intelligence at age 12.

I wonder how people can display such naivety and immaturity without scruples?

The Des Moines Register’s Editorial Board Has Endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton for the 2008 Iowa Caucuses



The job requires a president who not only understands the changes needed to move the country forward but also possesses the discipline and skill to navigate the reality of the resistant Washington power structure to get things done.That candidate is New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

~ The Des Moines Register, Sunday, December 16, 2007



The Des Moines Register’s editorial board has endorsed Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton for the 2008 Iowa caucuses.The Register, Iowa’s statewide newspaper, calls McCain and Clinton the candidates it believes are most competent and ready to lead.

Read the endorsements:Democrats: Hillary ClintonRepublicans: John McCainWatch the endorsement videos:Democrats: Hillary ClintonRepublicans: John McCain

When I heard the good news, I thanked God for Hillary Rodham Clinton!
I was elated to read it on the Huffington Post and quickly clicked the headline linking to The Des Moines Register for the full report of the breaking news! I excitedly sent the breaking news to the editors of Reuters, Guardian Unlimited and Bloggers News Network and other notable people.

This endorsement shows the great foresight of the Des Moines Register in the emergence of a new era in America as we look forward to the election of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as the next President of the United States of America in 2008.

God bless America!

Most Iowans Will Vote for Hillary Clinton

Most Iowans will vote for Hillary Clinton.

Those who think Barack Obama is more honest and trustworthy than Hillary Clinton, have poor knowledge of both senators, since birth to date.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has been more engaged in the Civil Rights Movement even before the Kenyan father of Obama met his mother.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has been more committed to the Civil Rights Movement when Oprah Winfrey was still a problem child.

It was so hypocritical to see and hear her name dropping Martin Luther King, Jr. in South Carolina and exploiting his dream to campaign for this Kenyan American, named Barack Hussein Obama.

Where were they when Hillary Clinton was meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1962?

The hypocrisies of Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama were exposed at their rallies in Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire.

They tried to use the race card to woo black voters in South Carolina and that is blackmail.
Because, if the Iowans don't vote for Obama, they would say, because he is black.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is more African American at heart than Senator Barack Obama who is really a Kenyan American.

God bless America.

Only ignorant voters will cast their ballots for Barack Obama.

I hope the Democrats in Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire will not waste their votes on Barack Obama.

Obama is begging for sympathy votes.

A true leader does not need sympathies, but conviction and approval.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has been committed to the American Dream since her childhood to date and I want Americans to look at the records of Hillary Roadham Clinton from age 13 to date.

I am black and proud and I support Hillary Rodham Clinton for President.

Democrats 2008: Hillary 48%, Obama at 22%

Democrats 2008: Hillary 48%, Obama at 22%

December 05, 2007

(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Many Democratic Party supporters in the United States want Hillary Rodham Clinton to become their presidential nominee in 2008, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. 48 per cent of respondents say the New York senator is their first choice for president.

Illinois senator Barack Obama is second with 22 per cent, followed by former North Carolina senator John Edwards with 11 per cent. Support is lower for New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, Delaware senator Joe Biden, Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich, and Connecticut senator Chris Dodd.

On Dec. 3 in Iowa, Richardson discussed his chances, saying, "I have met Iowans looking for a presidential candidate who has the experience to bring about the change that our country so desperately needs. I am that candidate. I have the experience to solve the very real problems facing our country. As president, I will end the war in Iraq, work toward solving our energy crisis, and make sure that every American has access to health care."

In American elections, candidates require 270 votes in the Electoral College to win the White House. In November 2004, Republican George W. Bush earned a second term after securing 286 electoral votes from 31 states. Democratic nominee John Kerry received 252 electoral votes from 19 states and the District of Columbia.

Bush is ineligible for a third term in office. The next presidential election is scheduled for November 2008.
