16. If congress would have passed it veto proof, guess he wouldn't have had a choice....
Edited on Mon Jan-14-08 12:21 PM by FrenchieCat
but that's not the point.

The point is that Hillary was attempting to say was that it takes the "doers" to actually get things done, not the dreamers.

That's been her premise to date. That she "does", while Obama "talks".

However, in her senate career, she hasn't "done" so much more than Barack....so I'm not sure why she believes so strongly that she "done" so much, considering how much longer she's been in the senate.

In her attempting to take credit for the entire Clinton administration and whatever happened there to make her seem so experienced, she has to take the bad with the good. And the bad; losing the house majority, divisive government which ended with an impeachment, 800,000 dead Rwandans, NAFTA and signing the 1996 Telecommunications act, and reform on Bankrupcy laws to the detriment of debtors weren't exactly exactly what the American people had bargained for.
