Hillary Clinton 2008 Presidential Run … “Thou shalt not mention anything related to Bill Clinton’s Impeachment”


Hillary Clinton’s run for the 2008 Presidential election will be done with her greatest efforts not to have anyone bring up her husbands 1998 impeachment. Funny, she claims that Bill Clinton is an asset to her campaign. Then why are certain parts of his presidency off limits? Far be it from political opportunist Hillary Clinton to only take the good and not the bad; how unlike her.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a new commandment for the 2008 presidential field: Thou shalt not mention anything related to the impeachment of her husband.

“In the end, voters will decide what’s off-limits, but I can’t imagine that the public will reward the politics of personal destruction,” senior Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson said Friday, when asked whether the impeachment is fair game for Clinton’s opponents. Earlier in the week, Wolfson dismissed references to President Bill Clinton’s conduct as “under the belt.” (Washington Post)

Hillary Clinton is going to learn for the first time as she runs for  the presidency that all things are fair or unfair in politics.  Its an open field field for the 2008 presidency and the fur should be flying.  In addition the  Captain’s Quarters states, “wonder how she can justify that while trotting Bill onto the hustings”.

I’m of two minds on this subject. If Hillary distanced herself from her husband and refrained from having him politick on her behalf, a case could be made that the impeachment isn’t germane to her own candidacy. After all, we rarely allow attacks on candidates’ spouses to pass without scolding the attacker for aiming below the belt, as it were.

      Here’s a good one:

      A Poem Called “Heaven”

      Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore were in an plane crash. They’re up in Heaven, and God’s sitting on the great white throne.

      God addresses Al first. “Al, what do you believe in?” Al replies, “Well, I believe I won that election, but that it was your will that I did not serve. And I’ve come to understand that now.” God thinks for a second and says, “Okay, very good. Come and sit at my left.”

      God then addresses Bill. “Bill, what do you believe in?”
      Bill replies, “I believe in forgiveness. I’ve sinned, but I’ve never held a grudge against my fellow man, and I hope no grudges are held against me.” God thinks for a second and says, “You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right.”

      God then addresses Hillary. “Hillary, what do you believe in?”

      “I believe you’re in my chair.”

      Well it’s obvious that the Republicans can not go for the same tactic of only talking about the good bits of Bush’s presidency; there would be nothing to talk about :-)
