22. There's no doubt, she's no conservative
But I don't give a lot of points to the neo-liberals either.

All that aside, we can still be aware that Hillary is incredibly polarizing. The reich-wingers have mounted a hate campaign against her for many years and it's been effective! Nothing morives the R base like the word "Hillary". It's their "rosebud", just utter the word and they morph into rabid dogs.

And, in spite of a brilliant effort at CYA and a bit of courting the right, they still hate her. Many who are not even political hate her.

Not long ago, talking with the gal that was cutting my hair, she knew little of politics and didn't know hardly any names I mentioned. At the mention of Hillary though you shoulda seen the jawline tense and the "I really hate her" remark was chilling.

Then there are those of us who used to go to the mat for her all the time. Defended her and Bill through the whole Clinton admin. I lent It Takes a Village to anyone who I could get to read it. Along came the IWR and that about tore it. If anyone shoulda knows about the evil of that plan, it was she who had been a moving target of that gang of thugs for oh so long.

That was when I realized she was either a special kind of stupid (very unlikely) or more interested in her own political career than anything else.

So yeah, Hillary is no conservative and anyone who argues such doesn't have a clue. Sadly though, she won't risk an epic battle that would offend those who already hate her guts.
