ummmmmm, Why Is Hillary Running?

Hillary Clinton has, on many occasions, shown that she runs with the polls, changes her mind and her vote according to what is "popular" and has no principles.

Her own Party doesn't seem to like her as is evidenced by visiting the DailyKos site and she certainly won't be getting the Republican party vote.

And does she really want to argue that her vote wasn't wrong?

Apparently so.

[Y]esterday morning Mrs. Clinton rolled out a new response to those demanding contrition: She said she was willing to lose support from voters rather than make an apology she did not believe in.

“If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from,” Mrs. Clinton told an audience in Dover, N.H., in a veiled reference to two rivals for the nomination, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Thank you, Hillary. I think I will.

So, why exactly is she even running? Who is her base? Who is she trying to please? Last but not least, who is going to actually vote for someone that doesn't understand what the word success means?

Her latest gambit is her ridiculous suggestion that the troops start withdrawing from Iraq in 90 days.... which puts her party in a tricky situation because everyone admits that an immediate withdrawal would create conditions for a regional war the likes of which we have never seen and this plan doesn't stand a snowball in hells chance of even receiving full Democratic support, not to mention any Republican support.

Now she is even selling her own party down the pike so that she can be "popular" again.

Bad decision and one that even her die hard fans are cringing from.

The question of the day would there anyone that Hillary will not screw in her struggle for power?

She is willing to screw our President, she is willing to screw our troops and now she has shown she is willing to screw her own party and her base of supporters.

Damn..... she is definitely giving her husband a run for his money in the screwing department huh?

Any doubt that she would screw the American people if elected president?

None here.
