Hillary Goes Off
Conciliatory Clinton gave-way to haranguing Hillary at a fund-raising event yesterday. Gearing up for her 2006 Senate re-election bid and her likely 2008 Presidential run, Senator Clinton lit into Republicans. Clinton said:
”We are living in a time when the other side doesn't want us to see the facts. Facts are inconvenient — facts about global warming, facts about mercury in the air, facts about people staying unemployed longer…
There has never been an administration, I don't believe, in our history more intent upon consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda," she said of President Bush.
"Whether it's the right to organize and be part of the American labor movement ... whether it's the right to be able to be have a choice when it comes to the most private and intimate decisions that a woman has to make, whether it is to protect the environment — whatever it is that we slowly but surely built up during the 20th century, this current administration and their allies in Congress want to turn the clock back on all of that.”
Wow. Did Hillary pick up a Howard Dean or John Kerry speech by accident? There’s really nothing wrong with throwing a little red meat to donors at a fund raiser, but Senator Clinton should watch that she doesn’t fall into the “angry Democrat” trap.
