If I were the political advisers of President Obama, I would not be planning any second term festivities just yet.
The Democrat Party is in disarray, fighting with their major donor unions (notably the SEIU – Senator Blanche Lincoln Arkansas fight) and poised to lose their super majority in Congress this November. Interestingly enough, President Bill Clinton has re-emerged in the political arena in Arkansas.
Might Hillary be waiting in the wings, should Obama start to collapse in the polls?
The President will now be looking over his LEFT and RIGHT shoulders.
California Republican United States Senate candidate Carly Fiorina on Fox & Friends, November 20, 2009
A few days ago, the Washington press corp made a big deal about Carly Fiorina and Sarah Palin. Fiorina was quoted that she had not met the former Governor and Vice Presidential candidate and had not read her book yet. The press corps was definitley looking to start up some sort of flap.
The above discussion about women and politics should quell any such thought.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gestures during her visit to the historical Badshahi Masjid in Lahore October 29, 2009.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton seen during a joint news conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, unseen here, after their talks in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009Hillary would be 69 years old in 2016.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she would not run for president again, and brushed off suggestions that she is being marginalized in the Obama White House.
Clinton, who lost the Democratic presidential nomination to Barack Obama, said “No” three different times when asked by NBC’s Ann Curry “Will you ever run for president again? Yes or No?”
“This is a great job,” Clinton said in the interview broadcast Monday. “It is a 24-7 job. And I am looking forward to retirement at some point.”
But, should the economy continue to sink and Obama becomes vulnerable in 2012.
Never say never – which Hillary didn’t.
Exit question: Will Hillary serve as Secretary of State throughout Obama’s first term?

Norman Hsu, 56, is escorted into a Redwood City, Calif., courtorom, Friday, Sept. 21, 2007. Hsu on Tuesday was charged with fraud and campaign finance violations in a case that prompted Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton to return hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributionsFormer Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton fundraiser has been sentenced to 24 years in prison today on federal charges – separate from his earlier California convictions.
Former Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison Tuesday by a judge who accused him of funding his fraud with a “conniving use of the political process.”
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero sentenced Hsu to 20 years in prison for his guilty plea to fraud charges and another four years and four months in prison for his conviction at trial for breaking campaign finance laws.
The judge said Hsu stole more than $50 million from hundreds of investors in a 10-year fraud by winning their confidence with a pristine reputation, even as he ripped them off in a complex Ponzi scheme, a recipe that the judge noted fits many white collar crimes.
He called Hsu a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
He said his “conniving use of the political process to fund his fraud” made his crimes “much more sinister and reprehensible.”
Before he was sentenced, Hsu apologized.
His donations became an embarrassment for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign. His arrest led Clinton to return more than $800,000 to donors linked to Hsu.
Wonder if his hard-won Democrat friends, like Bill and Hillary will send him a cake while he is sitting in Club Fed?
Mark Levin Show 9/21/09
As all of you know, Flap has been NO fan of John McCain. But, to say that Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton for that matter is better for the Presidency than McCain is NUTSOID.
Marl Levin in the video above makes the case.
Exit question: Will Glenn Beck recant or continue to RANT?
President Bill Clinton in 1997 with Democrat Party donor Hassan Nemazee on rightTalk about a culture of corruption.
Hassan Nemazee, chairman of Nemazee Capital Corp. and a fundraiser for President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was arrested on charges he used phony documents to trick Citigroup Inc. into lending him as much as $74 million.
Nemazee got the loan by telling Citibank he held accounts with hundreds of millions of dollars that could serve as collateral, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said today in a statement. The financier used fake addresses and phone numbers controlled by him to mislead the bank, prosecutors said.
The accounts â€œeither never existed or had been closed years before Nemazee submitted the documents referencing those accounts,â€ Bharara said in the statement.
Nemazee, 59, repaid the loan to Citibank yesterday, a day after he was interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, prosecutors said. The interview took place at Newark Liberty International Airport as Nemazee was checking in for a flight to Rome.
Another favorite fundraiser of the Clinton’s, Norman Hsu is in prison on a California conviction and awaits sentencing on his federal campaign finance fraud conviction.
In the 2008 presidential campaign, Nemazee raised at least $100,000 for Clinton, and then went on to bring in at least $500,000 for Obama after he defeated her in the primary campaign, according to the Washington watchdog group Public Citizen. Clinton is now secretary of state.
Yeah, we know, Hillary that YOU are the Secretary of State. A little touchy aren’t you?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost her cool Monday after a Congolese student, speaking through a translator, asked her what “Mr. Clinton” thought about a Chinese trade deal with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
“You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” Clinton replied, clearly irked by the thought of being her husband Bill’s spokeswoman.
“My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” she replied. “If you want my opinion I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”
There was a translation error.
But, watch the video and think what a BITCH Paunchy Hillary would be if she was elected President.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Secretary of State Hillary ClintonIn a hypothetical poll match-up Hillary Clinton leads Sarah Palin.
If America elects a woman president soon, right now her name appears to be Hillary Clinton.
In a hypothetical match-up between the two most formidable female candidates in their respective parties, Clinton defeats former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin 51% to 39%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely U.S. voters. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate.
Clinton performs better against Palin than President Obama who in a hypothetical 2012 match-up beats last yearâ€™s GOP vice presidential nominee by just six points, 48% to 42%.
Women overwhelmingly favor Clinton over Palin, 59% to 32%. Men favor the GOP ex-governor by eight points, 48% to 40%.
Palin gets 71% of the Republican vote, while Clinton captures 81% of Democrats. Voters not affiliated with either party break down almost evenly between the two candidates, giving Clinton a slight 44% to 41% edge.
Some interesting results in this poll.
- Obama is only beating Sarah Palin by 6 points
- Men prefer Sarah Palin to Hillary Clinton
- Independent voters edge toward Hillary by only 3 points
Sarah Palin has her work cut out for herself but it is a shock that she only trails the incumbent President by 6 points.
Why, of course, Hillary Clinton is ready.
Hillary Clinton says running for office isn’t on her “radar,” but she still has an eight-person political team and sports two overflowing campaign war chests.
Her team transformed the former Democratic White House contender’s massive campaign debts into a $3 million mountain of political cash, according to federal fund-raising records through the end of June.
Clinton’s failed presidential bid is now $1 million in the black, and her old Senate campaign committee has $2.1 million in the bank, much of it transferred in from the presidential account.
The former First Lady paid eight staffers nearly $100,000 in the second quarter of the year to tend to the remains of her political empire.
She officially pulled out of the political arena in January when she became secretary of state. But Clinton’s campaign Web site continues to accept contributions.
So much for Hillary’s Presidential campaign debts. Wonder how much Obama helped with those?
This is another check on the left-wing radicals behind President Obama. As Obama’s poll numbers fall due to an overreaching lefty agenda, Hillary will be there as a moderating influence – just like hubby, Bill.
