81. Just words right? If the meaning of the word "anything" has to be changed to make the statement...
Edited on Tue Mar-25-08 11:07 AM by The Night Owl
If the meaning of the word "anything" has to be changed to make the statement that "Hillary Clinton is capable of anything" seem rational, then you shouldn't use the word in that statement.

A rational statement might have looked like...

Hillary Clinton is capable of going to great lengths to win.

The statement that Hillary Clinton is capable of doing anything to win is not rational and is the kind of hateful rhetoric one expects from Ann Coulter, not a DU poster.

Like Barack Obama says... Words are important.
