Yeah, Sure, Mrs. Clinton

I don't understand why she is working so hard on gaining sympathy, plus, the media are falling all over themselves to kiss her a*s. It is all pretty disgusting.That one liberal woman columnist (I forget her name, the older blonde lady) was right - as long as the Clinton's keep dominating the stage, how can the Democrats run anyone for President?

Sen. Clinton Rules Out 2008 Presidential Bid
Sun Jun 8, 7:05 PM ETWASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (news - web sites), whose White House memoir is published this week, on Sunday ruled out making her own presidential bid in 2008. The first-term senator, one of the most polarizing figures in U.S. politics, told Time magazine and ABC News in separate interviews that she did not plan to run for the country's top job in 2008. "I don't have any intentions or plans of running," Clinton said, according to a transcript of the ABC interview. She said she was flattered by speculation that she might throw her hat in the ring and hoped it would encourage women to aim for the Oval Office, to which her husband Bill Clinton (news - web sites) was elected in 1992.A flurry of publicity has heralded the Monday release of her book "Living History" which has revived memories of the Monica Lewinsky scandal and focused attention on the senator's political future. Clinton has already ruled out a 2004 White House bid. Nine other Democrats are gearing up to run against the incumbent George W. Bush. She told Time she was "having a good time" being a senator and was looking forward to a re-election campaign in 2006. Her book reveals the former president lied to her about his affair with Lewinsky, a White House intern, for seven months, finally coming clean days before he was to testify to a grand jury. "As a wife, I wanted to wring Bill's neck," she wrote, also detailing how she and her husband subsequently slept in separate beds.

Re: Yeah, Sure, Mrs. Clinton

I always take "no intentions or plans" statements as appended with "yet". She didn't say "I won't". She said in so many words she hasn't laid plans yet (who has?), and hasn't formed the intention yet. That is not the same as I will not, or if you prefer, "If nominated I will not run, and if elected I will not serve."
