When President Clinton said “I did not have sex with that woman”, and then allowed his wife to go on shows like the “Today” show and defend him, many wondered how she could stay with him after the truth came to light. Many have criticized Hillary for staying with Bill for her own political gain, others have said their’s was always a relationship of convenience.
Whatever her reasons were for dealing with Bill, they are, after all, their personal business.
So when Vice President Biden appeared at the State Dept. to swear Hillary Clinton in as the Secretary of State, by her side stood her three closest allies and confidants, her mother Dorothy Rodham, her daughter Chelsea, and her husband, the 42nd President, Bill Clinton.
While some are saying that Hillary’s comments were embarassing to President Clinton, for most, she was sincerely thanking her husband and her family, and as she framed her words, she could sense how her words would be taken, so she put the humor to it. When all is said and done, the life that Bill and Hillary Clinton have shared has been full of “all kinds of experiences”. Isn’t that what we could all say!!??
If anyone has followed the words coming from President William Jefferson Clinton, one could almost think that he is a Democrat for McCain supporter!
At his Clinton Global Initiative conference on Thursday, the former President went to great lengths to compliment the Republican Presidential nominee as he introduced him to the audience. His compliments included McCain’s service to our country, McCain’s maverick role in the Senate, his willingness to explore global issues such as global warming.
In another interview, President Clinton commented that Gov. Palin is a prime force, and that if she appears in the debate as she was when McCain presented her to the public and at the Convention, she will certainly show that she is not the inexperienced candidate that she has been portrayed as. Even on The View, Clinton does not say that voting for McCain-Palin is a wrong choice. He uses strong logic to say we cannot criticize any voter’s rationale for their choice.
And, lest we forget, during the Democratic Convention, President Clinton made the comments that when you are presented with the candidate that identifies with your ideals, but who will be unable to deliver on most of his promises, and another candidate who matches “some” of your ideals and who can deliver on “some” of his promises, which would you choose. It was very much construed that he was referring to the fact that McCain is a better choice.
Thus despite the words—just words– that they wholly support the Democratic nominee, one has to wonder exactly where Bill and Hillary Clinton stand with regard to their votes. Even Saturday Night Lives’ Weekend Update did a spoof on Clinton’s support of Obama.
Message to the Honorable William and Hillary Clinton:
“Country First” is the battle cry of the McCain-Palin campaign, and we, the American public earnestly ask that you look closely at your role in this election, and in the future of this country. In doing so, you will realize, if you have not already, that Sen. Barack Obama is NOT the candidate of change, and that we CANNOT afford for his lack of experience to lead to further deterioration of this country’s values. Now is the time, Now is the MOMENT to vote for Country, Not for PARTY.
Now is the time to be the true mavericks, to be like your supporters who have publicly stated that they support John McCain (like Lady de Rothschild).
