I tell ya, that Hillary Clinton. I’m starting to like her. I can’t help myself. Not her politics, mind you, but the woman herself.
Oh sure, I think she’s an idiot for sticking with Bill after he all but publicly humilated her on a GLOBAL LEVEL with the whole Monica Lewinsky debacle. I’m sorry, but cheat on me once – meet my lawyer.
But that’s the past, and this is the present. And I have to say that over the past year I’ve really come to respect her a lot. Yes, she has taken some missteps during the year, but for the most part she is doggedly determined, and I admire that. She’s tough and stands up for herself, and I admire that, too. And even when the chips are supposedly down, she still wants to play – after all, “chip and a chair” is all one needs (if I am to stay with the poker metaphor).
She says she’s voting for Obama, but you just KNOW she is contemplating the possibility of the open roll call at the convention in Denver and the possibilities that await. And as much as I hate politics, I’m actually thinking about tuning in to a portion of the “rock show” just to see what happens. Because that’s history in the making if the Clinton followers decide to stand up and be counted after all.
