Hillary in Manassas

Just watched Hillary’s town hall meeting in Manassas, VA. She sounded good- pretty clear, strong, confident. Like the old Al Gore, she has a tendency to over-explain issues. Not that “how will we stop global warming?” doesn’t deserve a detailed answer, but the Town Hall format doesn’t really provide the best forum in which to address it. I guess all of the candidates are working as best they can with the forums they are given.

She looked really energized, too, and appeared to be having a good time. Glad to see it.

Learned over at Americablog that her campaign manager and long-time friend, Patti Solis Doyle just resigned, which means some new blood will be injected into her run. Given that few really thought the primaries after February would matter this much, it might be a good thing to have someone who is well rested come into the mix. And since Obama took the Maine, Washington, Louisiana and Nebraska primaries this weekend, new blood may be needed to lead the campaign home.

And that “town hall” is packed! I never realized that there were more than five Democrats in all of Virginia!

    I want to like her, I try to like her, but I can’t bring myself to it. She has mean eyes are something. Maybe its her hairdo?

    Maybe when the debates start and substantive conversations are there between candidates cosmetic issues won’t matter.

    Solis Doyle, is dispensable, she has served her purpose to help us win the latino vote in the big states. We no longer need her or the latino vote to capture the white house. The women and black vote will now carry the Hillary campaign the rest of the way. Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton replaced campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with longtime aide Maggie Williams on Sunday. Ms. Clinton believes Maggie Williams is a better choice to target the women vote. Clinton said in a statement. “I am lucky to have Maggie on board and I know she will lead our campaign with great skill towards the nomination.” This is a race to the white house, not a popularity contest. If the latino community feelings are hurt because Ms. Doyle services is no longer needed, I will address those issues after I am president.

    Very true Troy. Maybe I’ll write myself in?

    The Clinton campaign didn’t have a healthcare plan befor it felled and they don’t have one now. Well to be honest, if everyone is a goverment employee, then the Clinton healthcare plan will work for everyone. Unfortunately some are self employed, independent contractors or work for private employors or small business. Under the Clinton healthcare plan these people would be penalized if they don’t pay for their healthcare. This means that most of your family members and friends will have their paychecks garnished. We all know that it doesn’t stop their if it is a goverment enforcement. There will be fines and then misdemeanors which is a criminal offense defined as less serious than a felony. Why did Ms. Clinton decide on this approach? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Big business, big Corporation call it what you will, they want their money back and in order for Ms. Clinton to get their support in her race to presidency she is giving victory to one side (the healthcare providers) by promising to them that she will have the poeople wages garnished if they continue to give healthcare. Thus allowing her to shout the words “UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE” This is a shady tactic and makes fools out of every american that falls for trick. The Obama healthcare plan is for the people. Poor people, middle class and rich people can rest assured that there is no tricks or penalties in the Obama healthcare plan. VOTE OBAMA!!
