Sweet Caroline ...

Dem Princess, author, lawyer, song inspiration, and mom Caroline Kennedy officially endorsed Senator Barack Obama today in an opinion piece in the New York Times. Ms. Kennedy compared Senator Obama to her father, John F. Kennedy:

“I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans”.

Uncle Ted is expected to announce his endorsement for the Obama campaign on Monday.

Hey Valley Doll,
I'll admit to flip flopping. Kennedy gave the country hope, but at a different time and you wonder if that would have happened with identical access to all the information we've got today. Knowing that it's a much tougher battle, if Obama can inspire us, we really should support him. I'm just not sure how that can work.

Did anyone hear Big ZD on C-Span this afternoon? He predicted John Mccain would be the next U.S. President and gave his reasons why. Perhaps they will replay the call-in segment that followed the Mccain/Leiberman rally on Sunday.

It was a lot more fun than public comment. The host let me roll, but when I used the term, "shout-out", he started to look at toward the "dump" button, but he hung in there!

So many Democrats hate the Clintons they're stepping up to endorse Barack where usually they don't endorse. The last thing they want is Hilary as the nominee let alone President.

Idle speculation here on an earlier thread is I think dead on, but Hillary will also play up the victim angle.

Expect a week-long cone of silence out of Bill, and then an across-the-miles, Superbowl Sunday finger-wagging by Hillary, probably saying something like:

"Well, you know Bill, him creating some problems for me is nothing new. So I had to shut him up. And he knows when I mean it, because's been in the doghouse even at the White House before."

I really can't bear to think of the coming farce. This is going to be an hilarious week.

I think that Obama is a nice guy but no one has taken a look at his criminal record. Anyway, I'm a Republican supporting Hillary but I do have some problems with her. Soon Obama's streak will end and we'll have find ourselves discuusing something else when he begins to loose some more again.

Vote for Hillary Online is so dedicated to making sure Hillary Clinton wins this election that we've started a program that rewards those of you who post positive replies about Hillary on political blogs. By the way, we can't take credit for this idea, thanks Richard Sears! Our main premise is this: the opposition has the media by the collar. They are one in the same. One thing they don't have control over however is the internet. And we're not doing nearly as well as we could be doing at using this tool effectively.

Folks, we have monitored the traffic on our website. We see thousands pouring in daily, yet we only get a couple hundred e-mails from grassroots supporters wanting to help out in the cause. We know a lot of you just don't know where to begin. You've never participated in politics before. And that's fine! Gotta start somewhere, might as well be with Hillary.

We're giving you an easy opportunity right now to become part of the political process. I've come to find that a lot of bloggers who talk about Hillary in a negative tone simply don't know all of her positions on the issue. They've been caught up in the character assassination game that the media started. They simply need to be educated, and it's our job to correct them. Then you have other bloggers who are so caught up in other candidates, they haven't taken the time to look into Hillary and have simply ignored her out of ignorance. We can't get mad at these people, it's easy to understand how the opposition has made the United States a nation of sheep. It's not the people's fault however. And we won't be effective communicators if we approach them with that attitude.

But enough about that, you want to know about getting paid to write positive comments about Hillary. The way it works is this: in your spare time, you visit several political blogs. Whether they're for a specific candidate, undecided, or even a downright Hillary hater, your job is to post comments that portray Hillary in a good light. Each time you post a comment like this, make a note of the website's address in a text file (we recommend notepad). After a day's worth of blog commenting, send us an e-mail with that notepad file including all of the blogs you commented on. We will then visit a few of them to confirm you in fact leave the comments (Sorry folks, but there's always going to be someone out there wanting something for nothing). We will then pay you $1.00 per positive Hillary comment.

Could be a little envy against the Clintons. There's the dynasty angle, Kennedys vs. Clintons. Really not surprising, first John Kerry, and now Ted kennedy (BTW, Kerry's number one friend and backer in '04) steps into the Obama corner. Lines continue being draw. All major politicians will sooner or later side with one camp or another. It's like a High School dance, who do you ask, who do you invite, and what crowd do you stand with? For the winner, there are "debts to pay" in the form of cabinet seat's ambassador-ship's etc. et. It is so sad the really "great President" never got to be elected, he was assassinated on June 5, 1968.

PS. BTW, who is the female rodeoing champion? Ted, Bill, or Jack??

OK, I'm a big ZD critic, but I happen to agree with him about McCain. He will be President, especially if he pulls it out in Flori-Duh on Tuesday. It is Rudy's last gasp and he is on life support.

Romney has the money, the looks and some organization, but McCain has found his second wind, and he will kick everyone's ass and face Hillary in November. It will all beover on February 5, 2008.

I also believe there will be a slew of foxhole conversions from Rushbo on down, and they will all "hold their nose" and vote for McCain.

I am still ABH - Anybody but Hillary.

Hate to break it to you, but McCain might be the Republican nominee, but Clinton will be the next President.

I think it's smarter for ANY Dem or Rep, for that matter, to endorse anyone in Primary. Although it's possible that national candidates for President don't hold grudges like the local politicians do.

Obama isn't going to inspire anyone except for the sheep who like to think they're Progressives. them and minorities. People get so hyped up but when they realize that he can't really follow through on all of those empty promises, (and the Clintons will point that out a lot) they'll "see the light" and vote Hillary.

There is a long way to go.

And for anyone who gives a shit about Caroline Kennedy must think long and hard about the asshole she married. Her endorsement wold have been enough to cement my vote for Hillary even if she didn't have it.

Hillary will NEVER be President of anything except the Bill Clinton Sucker Club.

over 50% of the people in the US hate her and would never vote for her.

Mc Cain puts the lie to all of her BS qualifications: While she was a Yale freeing Black Panthers, he was in a POW cell.

he is an experienced military commander and she has none.

He is an experinced Senator, and she is known for passing no bills, except on to give $1,000,000 for a monument to Woodstock.

She's a fraud and he's real.

It all shows, and will show more in the debates. I only hope she gets the nomination; Barack will be otugh to beat.

If JFK hadn't died so young, he'd have been exposed as the fraud he was. His dad bought him the White House: dad Joe made his money running illegal booze during the prohibition while being a visible "good Catholic," impregnating his wife nonstop. And she was a bigoted, anti-Catholic prig. Hypocrites both.

JFK of course screwed anything that moved -- from the famous to infamous, and threw them away like toilet paper soon as he was done. All while being on heavy narcotics for his back. Best thing about him, he was apparently smart and well-read, but when he died and his wife stood by so stoically: maybe she had reasons to secretly think the prick got what was coming to him.

Papa Joe also bought son RFK the job of Attorney General, kind of cozy, don't you think? Made sure Johnny didn't get indicted for anything. And word is, they only supported integration so strongly because it was politically expedient to do so -- no choice.

Way they were shot, unlucky family: karma, coming home to roost for Papa Joe's misdeeds, maybe? They've been plagued with bad luck ever since. Only smart one is marie, who married an immigrant pol who's also a womanizer, but he's given her a powerful political role.
