99. Actually, watching Laura Bush in the White House for the past
seven years, should make everyone stand up and salute Hillary Clinton, who because of her smarts and communication skills, helped the Clinton Administration become the most popular US Administration in many years. Of course, she certainly had her naysayers, but, frankly, they were mostly pugs. I never expected to see her treated this way by a DUer. I believe that most men are dismissived of the supportive role that women play as wives of leaders and the difficulty of their lives because of that ignorance. Yes, some women are much better at this than others. How do you like the comparison of Georgie boy to Big Dog. Not much, is there.

Liking your candidate is one thing, idolizing him/her is another.
