Hillo with Billo (UPDATED w Video)

Hillary Clinton is about to step into the lion's den and put O'Reilly in his place.

Caution: you're about to enter a no-spin diary!

Teaser: The first question will be on Rev Wright.

Take the Poll:

Update [2008-4-30 20:49:33 by Al Rodgers]:

Now the fair and balance Dennis Miller is hammering her. Calling her out for working for Walmart. And he's engaging in sexist stereotypes, calling her some "Eve" who will stab Billo's "Adam" in the back. HA! Miller is now whinning about his taxes. Isn't this what it is all about, on their side.
Now Billo is SCREAMING that "DAILYKOS IS DONE !!"

He says they're done because Hillary went on his show, and thereby breaking Dailykos' stranglehold on Democrats.

This guy is funny.

Miller is screaming about Dailykos. Geez, who knew they got under his skin.

Billo is screaming that Rev Wright is rich and has "bling". To Miller's credit, he says he doesn't care if Wright has any money.

Billo goes on about the "HATEFULL LEFT WING BLOGS" like dailykos. HA!

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

I agree-neither Obama nor Clinton should be giving this GOP propaganda machine another dime in advertising dollars by appearing and driving up ratings.

It was wrong of Obama to appear and it is wrong for Clinton to appear.

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

actually, its not a bad idea. not everyone who watches Fox are hardened conservatives. there are many moderates whose opinions, or pre-conceived notions can be switched or possibly swayed when they make a good appearance. Hillary is doing great, not taking O'Reilly's bait and goading. She is calm, cool, and taking the questions.

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

Why is it wrong for political candidates to go on Fox? The whole idea of a campaign is to disseminate your message to as wide an audience as possible. It isn't wrong for Hillary Clinton to do it, and it isn't wrong for Barack Obama.

This is her 1st time

The show has been on the air for 12 years, and this is the first time she's appeared.

listening to you, it was a mistake on her part not to appear earlier.

I hope she appears once a week.

Maybe she could fill in for Alan Colmes.  The new Hannity and Hillary show.

silly, read carefully

I said, "the show" (singular) - not "the network" or "the channel"

when I said "the show" I was referring to the O'Reilly show.

obviously she's been on fox.  she was recently on Gretta's show.  Remember her interaction with Karl Rove on a morning show, something about people born in october.

Re: Clinton asked for the interview

So you believe O'Reilly?  O'Falafel?  O'Peabody?

I think I'd rather wait for a different source.  He's been trying to finagle an interview with her for months now.

I thought Clinton handled herself as well as could be hoped in such a setting.  In particular, I liked her answers on health care.

I didn't stay to hear Dennis Miller  or Dick Morris.  They both hate her so what could they say that wouldn't be predictable?

silly - yes

look up in the thread.  I wrote I didn't like the fact that Obama appeared on Fox.

the reason why it's significant is because she has never-ever appeared on billo's show.  not once in 12 years.

don't you remember her "I'm your girl" line?  When Hillary said vote for her because she would fight the right-wing-machine. she says it all the time, vote for me because I will fight.  I'm a fighter and obama isn't.  ecetra.

asking to appear on billo show is the sign of a fighter.

I thought he treated her pretty well.  He was just being himself (and acting like she would expect) and he never pushed anything too much.  If you notice, each question had a familiar pattern.  He'd begin it with a skeptical, but friendly, adversarial redneck pose, she'd answer cheerfully, and he didn't dwell too much on points of disagreement.

Exactly. I think it was a wise choice, it gave her airtime with those viewers unfiltered. Some viewers might sit back and decide- "You know, she's really intelligent and clearly knows her stuff, I might just vote for her, she makes a lot of sense."

Obama went on Fox for the same reason. It startled me that some Obama backers didn't get that.

I think both were wise to speak to Fox.

4th question: taxes

Billo starts to whine about reversing the bush tax cuts.

it's hard for Hillary to reply, cuz he keeps interupting her.

this is brilliant actually.  it makes her sympathetic.

A backlash occurs when someone is unfairly attacked.

He just called her a "waffler" for not taking a stand on capital gains.

Now he's calling her a socialist.  He says no, that she's like Teddy Roosevelt.  He says Teddy was a socialist.  what a freak.

Hill talks about her family.

Billo talks over and says she's "WRONG"

There's a difference, Al. Fox calls on both Obama and Hillary. So in a weird way, it is fair in its attacks towards both.

Bi-partisanship is only allowed for Obama. Just because Hillary doesnt brag about it, some people think she can not be bi-partisan.

Well take this as an example. Which one is more difficult from a bipartisanship perspective:

a) Newt Gingrich - the firebrand GOP leader, the person who inspired Repubs to overthrow Dems
b) Dick Lugar - someone who opposes Bush more often than most Repubs

Obama talks about Lugar and Hagel. They are already closer to us one an important issue. Try working with people who are out to destroy you and then talk about bipartisanship.

Twenty-something aren't you? It's called maturity and experience.

Dennis Miller: ass

Nice comment about Survivor "beware of your new found friend Bill. Every season on Survivor there's a pretty girl who spoons a guy next to the fire then votes him off the island."

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

I can't believe they continue to bring that pig, Dick Morris, on.  He has zero credibility, and has NEVER predicted anything about Hillary Clinton that has come true.  Morris once predicted that Hillary would "drop out" of her Senate race because she was afraid of Jeanine Pirro.  Heh.

Hillary has balls the size of Connecticut.

Pardon if I offend, but it's the way I've described her for some time.  

Right now, we need a very strong person in the WH - and I believe SHE IS THAT PERSON!

Get that in Chris Dodd's head if you can.

Re: Hillary has balls the size of Connecticut.

And if someone said that about someone other than HRC, how would you respond?

What are you getting at?

Are we supposed to be offended by Southern Mouth's ribald compliment?

Re: Hillary has balls the size of Connecticut.

Where'd she keep them during her eight years in the Senate? Upstate?

Connecticut? Too small. How about Texas?

No, wait a minute.  Skip that.  Too many thoughts of GWB.

Ovaries. :)

I like to say: strong women have brass ovaries.

Request to Diarist

Could you update your diary to include links to footage?  You can watch directly on FOX (if you dare):

http://www.foxnews.com/oreilly/index.htm l

I have to say that I saw this interview very differently from the diarist (though I very much appreciate his blogging this).  She was absolutely brilliant.  Bill couldn't help smiling at her half the time.

I couldn't have asked for a better performance.

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

Bill O'Reilly was practically gushing.  He let her off easy over and over again, while putting in a few softball jabs.  Otherwise, they were chumming it up.  Get a room you two!  He actually looked slightly in awe of her. (If you don't think this was a softball interview from O'Reilly, ask yourself how often O'Reilly admits that Dems only want to cut taxes on the rich.)

Aside from the softball questions, I actually thought Hillary did very well.  She came off looking very reasonable and very in command of history and policy, both of which she weaved together rather effectively.  I also thought her treatement of the Rev. Wright topic was classy.

Re: Hillary on O'Reilly (Live Blog)

That's what I was thinking as I listened to her win Bill'O on health care.  I was thinking - we don't just need someone who can talk about it in the echo chamber.  We need someone who can sit down with a right-wing hitman and say, look, this is a moral imperitive and here's why.  Set the record straight.  She was rock solid, she was calm, friendly, but did not pander.

Dear diarist

You linked part II twice. :)
