Do you think Hillary will do anything to get the nomination and eventually the presidency? And if so, do you think she would jump ship if she doesn't receive the Dem. nomination and switch to another party?
Um, yes. She's a calculating politican who cares nothing for "the people" or the "constitution", instead she just wants power. 0%  0%  [ 0 ]
Nah, she wants to win, but not that badly. She's a dem and will eventually do what is best for the party. 100%  100%  [ 2 ]
No because she knows if she switches, there is a chance that McCain would win and she certainly doesn't want that to happen. 0%  0%  [ 0 ]

What do you guys think? Am I going nuts? What if Lieboy's switch was an experiment to see if he could still win? Would Hillary do ANYTHING to become pres?

Hillary likes power, and she really wants to be prez, but I think she has far too much loyalty to the party to switch. I also think that she's got more integrity in her little finger than LIEberman has in his whole nasty little body. She's still a Senator, representing NY, too, so she's not exactly going to have to go home and "bake cookiers" if she loses to Obama, at least not for quite awhile.

uh, oh....this doesn't look good! :evil:

Paper: Hillary supporter organized Wright event

"Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, [Rev. Jeremiah] Wright sat next to, and chatted with, Barbara Reynolds," The New York Daily News' Errol Lewis begins Tuesday.

"A former editorial board member at USA Today, she runs something called Reynolds News Services and teaches ministry at the Howard University School of Divinity," he adds. "It also turns out that Reynolds - introduced Monday as a member of the National Press Club "who organized" the event - is an enthusiastic Hillary Clinton supporter.

I didn't vote for any of the three since I think a fourth situation is going on. If she doesn't get the nomination, she wants McSame to win. She will appear to be supporting Obama but with things like this Wright mess, undermine him at every turn. She cannot ever switch parties because a large part of her base would evaporate. She is a calculating power hungry politician who sees 2012 as a walk-through after putting the country through four years of McSame. She has sense of politics and entitlement that has created this very dangerous scenario for our country.

Touche, APL. You are very correct. Hm. Wonder if I can add that as a poll choice...

So, if you voted that you don't think Hillary would tear apart the party for the nomination, what do you think about the following article from Huffington Post?

Quote:
Hillary Clinton's campaign has a secret weapon to build its delegate count, but her top strategists say privately that any attempt to deploy it would require a sharp (and by no means inevitable) shift in the political climate within Democratic circles by the end of this month.

With at least 50 percent of the Democratic Party's 30-member Rules and Bylaws Committee committed to Clinton, her backers could -- when the committee meets at the end of this month -- try to ram through a decision to seat the disputed 210-member Florida and 156-member Michigan delegations. Such a decision would give Clinton an estimated 55 or more delegates than Obama, according to Clinton campaign operatives. The Obama campaign has declined to give an estimate.

Using the Rules and Bylaws Committee to force the seating of two pro-Hillary delegations would provoke a massive outcry from Obama forces. Such a strategy would, additionally, face at least two other major hurdles, and could only be attempted, according to sources in the Clinton camp, under specific circumstances:

First, this coming Tuesday, Clinton would have to win Indiana and lose North Carolina by a very small margin - or better yet, win the Tar Heel state. She would also have to demonstrate continued strength in the contests before May 31.

Second, and equally important, her argument that she is a better general election candidate than Obama -- that he has major weaknesses which have only been recently revealed -- would have to rapidly gain traction, not only within the media, where she has experienced some success, but within the broad activist ranks of the Democratic Party.


Huffington post article here

Please take the time to go read the whole article, its pretty good at pointing out what she has the possibility of doing to the party in her insane desire to win at all costs.
