That same June weekend, we found Lieberman campaigning like a man who had no idea someone else might be breathing down his neck. He cheerfully recalled how Bill Clinton -- then a Yale law school student -- supported him in his first race for the state Senate, and how he boarded the Clinton national bandwagon in 1991.
(He did not bring up his decision to denounce Clinton from the Senate floor some years later, a speech that helped grease the skids toward impeachment.)
Clinton repaid that early favor last week, traveling to Connecticut to help Lieberman.
and from the NYTimes
WATERBURY, Conn., July 24 -- Former President Bill Clinton issued a broad appeal for Democratic Party unity in defense of Senator Joseph I. Lieberman on Monday, praising him as a "good Democrat" who deserves to win next month's primary...
Despite his endorsement of Mr. Lieberman, Mr. Clinton has said that in the general election he will support whoever wins the Democratic primary. His wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and many other prominent Democrats have taken the same position. Mr. Lieberman has said that he will run as an independent if he loses to Mr. Lamont...
Calling the war the "pink elephant" in the room, Mr. Clinton said, "The real issue is, whether you were for it or against it, what are we going to do now."
Florida Embraces Paper Ballots, Changes Presidential Primary Date
Posted on Friday, 4 of May , 2007 at 11:48 am
TALLAHASSEE, FLA--In a 118-0 vote in the Florida House of Representatives, a bill was passed requiring all Florida counties to have paper ballot voting technology in place before the 2008 Florida primaries and general election. The House vote comes shortly after the Florida Senate approved a similar measure.
The ACLU of Florida applauded the Legislature for acting on Gov. Charlie Crist's commitment to change the State's voting system to a paper ballot-based technology. "The battle for fair elections in Florida now focuses on the 15 formerly DRE counties, which must act independently to ensure that disabled and language-minority voters will not be second-class citizens," said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida.
Crist congratulated the Florida Legislature for passing legislation that will replace touch-screen voting machines with optical scan machines statewide for Election Day voting and early voting sites. He also praised the Legislature for changing the date of Florida's presidential primary to an earlier date - the last Tuesday in January--Jan. 29.
You missed some stuff in that article you're quoting from.
Both Obama and Clinton have tried to make the most of it, and Clinton has attempted to bolster her Senate resume with her less-than-transparent track record as first lady....
Clinton also has her share of colleagues only too willing scrutinize her claims. Her campaign Web site describes Clinton's "successful effort to create" the popular State Children's Health Insurance Program during her husband's tenure in the White House, and she has placed herself in the middle of major international events, including the Northern Ireland peace process and the Balkan conflict...
During months of SCHIP negotiations in 1997, her name rarely surfaced in news accounts. Clinton never testified before Congress or held a news conference on the bill. When Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (Utah), the lead GOP negotiator of the children's health bill, heard reports that Clinton was depicting herself as SCHIP's main advocate, "I had to blink a few times," he said. Hatch said he doesn't recall a single conversation with Clinton about SCHIP, even a mention of her name. "If she was involved, I didn't know about it," he said.
I don't have the time nor the intestinal fortitude to try to lay out everything that is delusional about your scenario. Indiana by 20%? West Virginia by 30?! Clinton's one 20%+ victory was in Arkansas. Your scenario suggests she's suddenly going to gain the sort of traction needed to repeat that one-time success 5 more times in the remaining contest when she has $3 million in the bank.
I only recently came to this site, and already you've helped me decide that I stumbled into a den of intellectual iniquity. I see no need to waste my time refuting absolute tripe.
I'm not really worried about McSame since he'll probably be in the throes of dire senility or dead of old age by November. Oh, and the fact that Obama will wipe the floor with him gives me no small degree of confidence about the matter.
Meanwhile, the Clinton camp is resurrecting the old "duck (la, la, la) and cover" jingle in 2008. So much for change.
I rushed into a burning building today and rescued four children and a litter of kittens. Now there's video showing that, in fact, the building wasn't on fire, and that I really just went in to use the bathroom, but who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?
