NO ! Hillary is THE DEMOCRAT DICK NIXON in a slightly different kind of pants suit (just look at the photo of her bowling that accompanied Chris Cillizza’s most recent tidbit in the WP)
Cillizza’s word pictures are a no less damning comparison to the Watergate President, whose congressional hearings ushered Hillary into the ways of politics in Washington
At long last our side has caught a break in the long run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election; and it came in the form of a memoir from a solid D.C. establishmentarian, former SecDef Bill Gates and other big posts, an insider’s insider, who served both Dubya ’n’ Obama. In Gates’ book is a sliced and diced early serving of Hillary as hors d'oeuvres before expected thicker slices to come in 2014, 2015 and 2016 by countless others. What is especially interesting is the quick response this has gotten from some in the leftish press.
Chris Cillizza, a Washington Post columnist and a semi-regular on MSNBC, was quick to pounce with his “the obvious is not so obvious that I won’t mention it” column in the WP, where among other niceties he mentioned this:
“But, remember this is Hillary Clinton we are talking about. And, the criticism that has always haunted her is that everything she does is infused with politics -- that there is no core set of beliefs within her but rather just political calculation massed upon political calculation. Remember that she began slipping in the 2008 Democratic primary when her opponents seized on an overly political answer on giving drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants during a debate in late 2007. *** Gates's version of why Clinton opposed the surge fits perfectly into this existing good-politics-makes-good-policy narrative about the former secretary of state. And that's what makes it dangerous for her -- and why you can be sure she (or her people) will (and must) dispute Gates's recollection quickly and definitively.” ( See “How Bob Gates’s memoir could haunt Hillary in 2016” by Chris Cillizza, 1/7/14, Washington Post/ The Fix [http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/01/07/how-bob-gates-memoir-could-haunt-hillary-in-2016/]).
In other words, Hillary, this is bad and you have to do something about it quick. Besides, if the column doesn’t get a rise out of you, wait ’til you see the gallery of photos of you kicking-back and enjoying yourself, with just too many of the shots looking like Tricky Dick having a good time in drag.
