NY Times: Confused Pictures of Hillary Clinton

Reading a New York Times piece on Hillary, some sections jumped out at me (emphasis mine):

If she is not temperamentally suited to reckon with the possibility of losing quite yet, advisers say, she is also a cold, hard realist about politics — at some point, she is known to say, someone will win and someone will not.

This is an interesting rhetorical double shot. The New York Times essentially said Hillary Clinton is too mushy and emotional to handle the race, oh and by the way, is a completely cold and rational bitch who can totally handle the race. What the hell, Patrick Healy? You’re playing the weak woman and the “bitch” card at the same time?

His article isn’t entirely without merit. This quote alone is worth it (Emphasis mine):

“She has a real military discipline that, now that times are tough, has really kicked into gear,” said Judith Hope, a friend and informal adviser to Mrs. Clinton, and a former chairwoman of the New York State Democratic Party. “When she’s on the road and someone has a negative news story, she says, ‘I don’t want to hear it; I don’t need to hear it.’ I think she wants to protect herself from that and stay focused.

For someone who frequently compares her opponent to Bush, this is quite the revelation!

“That said, she knows that there will be an end,” Ms. Hope said. “She is a very smart woman.”

Thanks for clearing that up Judith Hope. Gosh, I wonder if all her advisors are this insightful?

  1. Hey, Dan, have you checked out Dahr Jamail’s website? He’s been an unembedded journalist in Iraq for years now. Here’s a link: http://dahrjamailiraq.com/hard_news/

    I was thinking you would appreciate his story on the body count. He says, the Iraqi government has issued instructions to all security and health offices not to give out the body count to the media
