Poll question: Which is worse, calling Hillary a monster or calling Obama Ken Starr?
Just to get an idea of what the general public thinks.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Show me a quote where Hillary Clinton said precisely that Obama *is* Ken Starr
Just anticipating the replies from the HillBots.

8. True enough. She simply said Obama is imitating Ken Starr.
As did her goon.

Obama's non-paid staffer was immediatelyl released from her position for her comment. Hillary not only does not fire her staffers for their attacks, she stands by them.

3. Hillary Clinton is not a monster
And the more this story stays around, the more people subconsciously link Hillary Clinton with monster.

6. Hillary Clinton is a monster
And she will continue to be a monster the more she continues to damage Obama and the dem party for the GE. She knows she has no chance to win this but she is being a monster who is destroying whatever is in her path. Sort of like Godzilla. Get it?

7. They don't like it when you call her monster but if you're gonna call her...
at 3am, she says she is the one we can trust. Buh dump buh! Sorry, could'nt resist the "if you're gonna call...." Oh, all right.

9. Hillary is a monster!!
Shows no repect for the entire nation. Refuses to thank her supporters after she loses states in what should be concession speeches. She cares more about the Clinton dynasty than the democratic party. She is in "if I can't have it, neither can you mode"--like the spurned lover who murders the object of her unrequited love. Being a Clinton means never having to say you're sorry.

Double standards all around--she is a monster.

Whew! That felt good to let out.....

10. Today, obviously, 83% of DUers are Obama supporters.
I guess the Hillary supporters are taking a day off to have a nice BBQ and not wasting their time online. I know I'm about to head out. ;)

13. We don't like her around here. Deal with it.
And you're about to find out how little the electorate and the party establishment think of her. Grab your hat, it's a long way down.

11. Calling chimpanzees "monkeys" is far more offensive.
Candidates argue, big fuckin' deal.

12. but Obama got rid of the aide who called Hill a Monster while the aide who likened Obama to Ken Star
is still with her campaign. But the worst is Hillary for suggesting that John McCain is mor fit to be president than fellow democrat Obama.

15. If she can't handle being called a monster by one person, or the pimp comment
Then her skin is thinner than that of any politician I've ever heard of. And she thinks she can be President?

17. Oh, she can handle it all right.
But more important, she can play the victim and USE it.

"Don't pick on me! I'm the STRONG one!"

18. Obama, echoing Ken Starr, raised the Whitewater spectrum
Through his advisor David Axelrod.
It's justifiable to compare him to Starr.
And if the poll finds the "Starr" comparison to be worse, it's because DU is 80% pro-Obama, according to DU polls conducted here.
