Great job on Hilary's part; basically what i've been fealing all along. Just because a group is anti-American, or doesn't agree with us, shouldn't mean we have to shun them away and not talk to them. Opening talks like what Obama is doing is a step in the right dierection and i hope he keeps it up. Now, if only the same can be done with Iran and North Korea.....
The Pense argument is the GOP argument, they try to elevate the GOP by nitpicking everything the democrats do. Sorry Mr. Pense, it does not elevate the GOP in any way, and the correct way to bring that point home was demonstrated by Hillary.
Hillary is good. She can deconstruct republican platitudes with the best of 'em by using intellectual arguments without sounding pretentious or rambling. That congressman was glad he didn't have to respond.
I think she finally might have put that silly talking point to rest and it is about time. I doubt any of the conservative mouth pieces will be able to bring it up again for at least a few weeks. By then I am sure there will be some nice smiling pictures of Reagan and Bush the First shaking hands with some dirty unamerican commies.
Although I agree Hillary had a very nice response and I also agree that the question was worded very poorly, I disagree entirely with the "Dickless republicans" title on that page. In fact, I think its more accurate to say Dickless Democrats in this instance. Furthermore, I think it is very immature and shows that the author of that is a partisan hack and failed anatomy class.
My reaction is that some of the Hillary would have made a good President crowd fail to understand why Obama won. Obama was always against the Iraq war,
Hillary tried to straddle the fence and pandered to GWB, and that is what gave Obama his opportunity, and that is the #1 reason why Obama won. You can't get it wrong on big things like wars and expect to win.
Hillary probably kicks herself for that political pandering everyday, but when Pense tries the same pandering stunt on Hillary, he done picked on the wrong person who understands that moral weakness of pandering best of all.
