Clinton, Obama open PA campaign offices

Original post made on Jan 21, 2008

Enthusiastic volunteers crowded into a suite of offices Monday afternoon for the grand opening of a Palo Alto office for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, about a week after Barack Obama's campaign opened a South Palo Alto office.

If Clinton is the answer the question is irrelevant.

Seriously how can anyone vote for her?

She can not even defend herself against her husband lies.

How can she defend American?

Show me where this woman has a spine that will not bend with the wind.

Yeah for Hillary. Yes, Jersey, she has a spine, a back bone, which is more than most politicians can claim. Yes, she is 'flexible,' thank goodness. The last thing we need is another president who can't admit when he's wrong, but remains rigid in his benighted positions.

Yes, Pam, if we were to keep looking for perfection, we'd never elect anyone. The people who scare me are the ones who think they're perfect; you know them: the ones who can do no wrong--in their own opinion.

Sadly none of the above 3 apply to Mrs. Clinton.

Politics aside, I admire the way Hillary worked with her husband and valued the marriage more than his infidelity. If more people were able to stand by their marriage vows rather than opt out at the first problem, our kids would be growing up in a better world today.

Hillary, good for you.

Hillary "stood by" her need to use her husband as a stepping stone to power.
Neither Bill or Hillary care a thing about marriage vows. Bill continues in his long history of sexual liaisons outside his marriage and the two of them won't even live in the same home together. The Clinton marriage is such a sham that kids today must think such "vows" are a complete joke.
"Resident", you must be a Hillary campaign worker!

Her plan was so hideous and heartless that NOT EVEN ONE democrat in DC voted for it. On the merits of personal record Hillary loses both for herself and for all of us.

To bad so many Clinton haters don't bother to read or try to really understand who they are from anything other that hate radio, rumors and inuendo. They always regurgitate the same vile garbage. Hillary has always run her personal life with decorum. She has valued her privacy, tried to protect her family, and survived years of slander and lies. She gave up an potentially successful Washington political career to marry Bill Clinton and move to the state of Arkansas. And, it is very likely she'd be running for President now even if she hadn't married him. They have both been trying to bring about positive changes for the American people. And, despite all the obstacles in their path, admiditally some of their own doing, Americans are generally rejecting the haters and standing with the Clintons.

Maggie Thatcher is remembered for her tough policies and being a great primeminister, much more than being remembered as Britain's first primeminister which is what she wanted. Hillary is from the same mold in that she is not playing on her sex to get the votes, just her policies.

Obama seems like a nice guy, and I'd vote for him if not for Hillary. Sure, he's charming and genuine and all, but he's a babe in the woods who needs a little more political seasoning. Bring him back in 2016 and then we'll talk.

As for Bill Clinton, there's no way he can play his cards so he's not criticized. If he stays out of the campaign, the gossips say that he doesn't truly support his wife. When he gets involved, he gets a different kind of flak. Mrs. Obama is out there stumping too, but no one is trying to attack her. She's not a former president, sure, I understand that. But let's not awfulize Bill for doing what every presidential spouse is doing during the height of the campaign.

I think we are lucky to have exciting candidates to discuss and compare. In my mind, Obama is a visionary leader and the one most likely to inspire people to undertake the kinds of deep change (in energy use, compassion, economic/spending restraint, hard work and innovation) that are imperative if the U.S. is to survive in the world. Hillary strikes me as a deeply divisive person who will drive people apart. Both are really brilliant and hard-working. However, she clearly is the frontrunner right now. I do not think she will be able to win against either Mitt Romney or John McCain, however. I think Obama has a chance to do so. However, unfortunately I think he will have to wait a few more years--hopefully only 4 not 8.

1) $25 billion increase in the program to help low-income Americans with heating costs -- an excessive amount (the current program is under $3 billion)

2) Commie Clinton, housing plan, include a five-year freeze on subprime mortgage rates that would produce higher interest rates and reduce liquidity.

3) A 90-day moratorium on subprime foreclosures and an automatic rate freeze on subprime mortgages of at least five years (gee who decieds who get forclosed on?)

So who are the people that will get all the breaks? Is she so confused that she thinks she is Robin Hood?

McCain's age is definitely against him. At times he looks and sounds great, at times he appears to be old and tired. He is 71. This means that in 8 years he will be pushing 80 which makes a big difference. Even if he can do it now, he won't be able to do it then. If he wins, I can't see that he can win in 4 years.

A very healthy 71 year old is great, looking for his prospects for the future and his health/age just has to be taken into account.

Excellent ideas, all! This is definitely a plus for Hilary's campaign, because she's showing those less fortunate that there is indeed someone who cares, in contrast to the current Republican administration, and Republican candidates, who never even speak about any of this stuff.

I believe that if Hillary Clinton is elected, you will continue to see increasing polarization around the country. It is hard to identify a more divisive figure than Hillary Clinton in American politics today (OK, other than Bush). A general election between Hillary and any Republican challenger will likely be a repeat of the past 2 presidential elections where the winner will come away without gaining a significant majority support or even the respect of the opposition. This because outside of traditional Democrats, there are so many people with strong negative opinions about her. The best hope to heal some divisions in the country could be to start with a clean slate ... Bush / Clinton have been at the helm for the past 20 years! A general election race between Obama and McCain would be very refreshing. An election between Hillary and McCain would be an easy decision for many people who could see McCain as the lesser of two evils since he stikes more moderate/independent positions than many religious right-wing Republicans .Unfortunately, its likely that the polarized trend in American politics will only be strengthened this year with Hillary Clinton getting the Democratic nomination due in large part to money, media, influence and the established political machine.

I don't really care about "first woman" or "first black" president ... just want someone with a snowball's chance in hell of leading the country in a more unifying direction, something which can't be accomplished by "policy" proposals alone.

It is always the same old thing. The hard earned income of working people is stolen in the form of taxes so that greedy politicians, like Hillary, can redistribute it to buy votes, and accrue power and wealth to themselves.
Such schemes, like government run healthcare, are always sold to us as wonderful and necessary public benefit programs. And who dosen't want a freebie, after all? As long as the voter thinks it won't personally cost him more than what he gets in return. He has no problem voting to tax others.
But the unseen costs can be great indeed, like the loss of other options and freedom of choice. And goverment run programs are by their very nature wasteful, inept, poorly administered, inadequately monitored, difficult to reform and unaccontable to the people they serve.
They also usually fail to deliver what was promised. But for the unscrupulous politician it's a sure win. It gets them elected, it cost them nothing and when the plan fails they can always claim "good intentions".

It could be argued that the traditional medical approach actually contributes to more illness than it cures. There are toxic drugs that break down the defenses of the body, unnecessary traumatic surgeries, medical mistakes and virulent hospital spread infections, just to name a few of the drawbacks.
Holistic approaches that bring the body into balance, cure the body naturally and prevent illness in the first place are much better alternatives. Of course some emergencies may still require cut & burn techniques.

I am an atheist just like Hillary. And I, like Hillary believe in universal health care for the same reasons as all atheists believe in universal health care.

We want all you sickly people mainly you fat over consuming people going to the doctor more often so you take more drugs and have more medical procedures. This plan fits well into the scientific approach that Darwin's science proves that all inferior forms of animals die off early. In the long run this will make for an even stronger human race. And fewer people on the planet creating green house gasses. Go Hillary.

I think Hilary will do better job. Obama is charming, but this is not competing for "American Idle". I would prefer Obama would stand up with some solid answers to Bill Clinton's criticizes and show his abilities to handle the current mess, but not fooling around about husband and wife relationship.

I don't see Bill Clinton is a problem here. I guess nobody will complain if Hilary is helping Bill for presidency campaign. Woman candidate with ex-president husband doesn't make her lose the privilege to get help from her husband.

Somebody mentioned "Honesty and Integrity". I think it's understandable that Bill Clinton was not honest with his sex-scandal. The worse situation is when somebody with an honest face but not capable to be the president lied and dragged the country into a mess to cover his own failure. An incapable person with super power is a disaster.

We can't afford another PROVOKER in white house. That's what I see in Obama.

There is no difference, essentially, between Hilary and Obama..both want to take more money from the 54% of the nation that pays any taxes at all and give it to the 46% of the nation that pays NOTHING...both want to impose regulations on businesses and increase business taxes so that new businesses don't start, and existing businesses don't grow, our economy implodes, the poor get poorer, and more people become unemployed and on the dole.

At least Obama hasn't played any silly race or gender dividing politics ( just class warfare, as all Dems do). And, though vapid and naive, as all socialists are, at least he seems more honest and civilized.

And, Obama hasn't had the time to reveal if he is actually a liar also..but so far doesn't seem to be.

By the way, I am a woman and I completely despise the sexist and racist politics around this whole thing. At least Obama has said that if he loses he knows it won't be from racism..I gotta really like that in the guy. Hilary has already laid down the "victim to sexism" mentality, and I truly despise her for it. She makes it harder on all women when she does this..it is divisive and absurd.

Further, to vote FOR someone because of their gender or race is JUST AS SEXIST AND RACIST as it is to vote AGAINST someone for those reasons. Don't give me the "women are harder on women" bull, either. I am a dyke.

I am voting for the one who has the best assessment of what issues our nation faces, and the best solutions for the issues.

Not sure who that will be yet, but I can guarantee that my number one priority will be the one who will be the most likely to stand on the side of liberty for all.

My second priority will be the one who will most likely be in favor of policies which truly help the poor keep the mobility to "pursue happiness" as defined in our "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". This means the candidate who best understands that it is harmful to teach dependence and victimhood.

And my 3rd priority will be the one who is least likely to destroy our economy..ie the one most likely to favor keeping the tax rate the same and not increasing regulation so as to encourage the continued growth of our economy. The one who understands the root causes of our uninsured, and how to really fix them without destroying our freedom or our economy.

Please study what has happened in France, and what is happening now, to see the blueprint of our future if we continue moving toward socialism in this country.

The poor in France have a much lower standard of living (which continues to decrease) than the poor in the USA. AND, the country is going broke. This is always the result, in every country that has tried it, of socialism. It has been done many, many times, and has failed every time within a generation or two.

I want my grandchildren to have a good life with many options.

And, more than 45 million working Americans can't afford healthcare for themselves or their families. One day, America will join the other civilized nations on earth, and adopt universal health care, so that millions of hard-working Americans will not have to worry about losing everything if they get sick.

Pam, it isn't true that 45 million people can't afford health care for themselves and their families. Even Massachusetts acknowledged that fewer than 20% of its uninsured "couldn't afford" health insurance. You have to remember that it is a free country and people are free to be foolish..whether or not you agree with that "freedom" is another issue, but don't confuse foolishness with inability.

Extrapolating from Massachusetts, and I believe this extrapolation based on my personal many years of working in a local hospital, no more than 10 million "can not afford" health insurance.

I do not want to change our entire health care system for fewer than 4% of the nation. I don't believe in throwing the baby out with the bath water. Fix the system to capture the truly needy, or even to force everyone to buy a minimal amount of health insurance, perhaps through "no insurance, no driver's license", but please don't "bless" us with "universal health care".

I like getting timely and excellent health care. There is a reason our death rates from cancer,for example, are so much lower than the "universal health care" of other nations. There is a reason i can get a total hip replacement as soon as I need it so I can continue with the quality of my life, rather than wait 5 years.

Clueless.

We are far worse off than most other countries. Sure, you can get a hip replacement when you want - so what? I'd rather see cheaper and more accessible health care, instead of giving everyone their favorite elective surgery on demand. The Canadian and French and other European systems work just fine. Those citizens are not complaining like Americans are about the cost, or access, to health care.

Why can't the VA bid for drugs? Why do Americans have to go to Canada to buy their pharmaceuticals?

We're being run over by greedballs insurance companies.

Sure, Pam ,"I gueeese you can say Vice President Hillary Clinton. I'm very much O.K. with "President Obama /"Vice President Hillary Clinton. America would back a team of that nature ,and we would hold that against the world while working with the Republican Party,.........to gain back 100% of our stand as a world SUPER power machine. The dollar would rerise above the Euro, patriotism would be a fad I hope you have a flute., "PAM", LOve YoU.

Mr. Ed, It's going to take more than Hillary or Obama to bring back the dollar. Trust me on that one. America has made itself poor trying to be a superpower. We need to join the family of nations. We don't need rhetoric; we need savvy - and someone who will counter the GOP attack dogs. Obama is TOO far left. America is a center-to-center-right country. Starry-eyed ultra liberals (who my heart is always with, but my mind and experience warn me not to follow) always go for the nurturing rhetoric from candidates like Obama. Clinton is not perfect, but she'll get the job done better in the long run.

Go Hillary!!!

C'mon..you gotta be kidding...we are poor??? When 69% of our "poor" people own their own homes, more than that own their own cars and even more have TVs and microwaves?

When our average real income is the highest it has ever been?

You have to travel to other countries a little and see what poor is...

We are NOT poor. Every other diverse country would love to be as poor as we are.

Mr. Ed,

"Surveyusa.com, the most accurate polling company (only poll that showed Hillary with a 10 point lead in CA), shows that Obama could very well lose traditionally DEM states--the big blue ones like MA and PA. In these states, Hillary beats McCain but Obama loses to McCain. Despite Obama's touted "Red" and Mountain state "wins," there is NO chance that DEMS will take many of these states, so we must take all the traditionally big blue states to win this--and that's where Obama is the weakest. There are too many rank and file lunch bucket DEMS, the group that doesn't go for Obama. Too few latte liberals in these states to make up for the deficit. Also, why do you Obamatons think most leading conservative Republicans are rooting for Obama--people like Bill Kristol, Peggy Noonan and George Will? It's because underneath their fake talk about how he will be the "best" and "strongest" opponent for McCain, they know that once Obama is vetted, he will have NO chance at beating McCain"

Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anybody out there know what integrity is?...............Because, I think Mrs. Hillary is lacking that department. She will say anything to beat Mr. Obama even if it cost her, her marriage. It is better to look good in the eyes of the LORD,.........Than a mere man here on earth. What America wants is change. Who's sending our money out of the country daily, Who's taking the jobs our teenagers should have,to learn how function as adults,in our fast food restraunts,after they attend High school? Now they've takin alternative routes,......nothing. Lets go back Pre-1980's. Didn't You watch the superbowl, and the Grammy's. Both shows had the same American themes. This is our country,.....another thing,CALIFORNIA is a target and terror is right here, on our farms,in our dairy's, and in our orchards. I say hire an American do not be fooled,...."WE WILL WORK !!!!!!!!!!!!!<...cheap labor will kill us ALL.
