Sen. Hillary Clinton's girlhood home (sort of) (Pennsylvania)
LAKE WINOLA, Pa. - Ice still covers the lake. Shades darken windows of many homes along its 2.5-mile perimeter. A summer flotilla of pontoon boats sits scattered and tarp-shrouded on narrow gravel driveways muddied by the early-spring thaw.
It is not yet the season in Lake Winola.

Likewise, any buzz in this vacation hamlet over its tangential claim to a presidential hopeful has yet to really percolate.

"You're the first to ask," the local postmaster said on Friday with a smile.

But just give it a few weeks.

The Rodham cottage in Lake Winola, Pa., where the young Hillary Rodham Clinton spent time each summer. Her family still owns the property near Scranton.

3. Oh, look, a gratuitous insult.
From the camp that goes with the scholarship boy whose feet never touched common American ground, going from elite private school in paradise to the Ivy League and then going into communities where he had never lived to ORGANIZE them, because he knew so much better than they how they should deal with the world?

Yes, by all means criticize the people who grew up as ordinary Americans. And you wonder why people who punch a time clock prefer a Clinton?

I support Obama but don't read anything else in to it. Just that Hillary will be claiming(justly) a connection to PA. That's all! I didn't realize she had a PA connection.

Geesh everyone is getting touchy. If I was going to make any negative comments about this it would be in GDP!
