This morning on the radio, I heard a terrific description of Oprah. She was called the High Priestess of our secular culture. Isn't that great? A clever listener e-mailed that to Bill Bennett this morning and it made me smile. The discussion was Oprah's decision to go out on the road for her candidate of choice, Obama. I admit I'm apathetic about this development. I don't think celebrity endorsements sway voters. If they did, John Kerry would be president. He had everything from free concerts to every major Hollywood celeb out campaigning for him. They still don't understand that the American people like to make up our own minds.
Michelle Obama is also going out on the road. She'll be in Iowa later in the week, mostly to counteract Bill Clinton's appearances for Hill. Hill is dying that Oprah isn't campaigning for her, she's a woman after all and Hill wants you to think women are so stupid that every one in the country will support her for her gender alone, and is trying to downplay Oprah's popularity. She says her Bill is even more popular, so there. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. That's what she told her chief cheerleader, the vacuous Katie Couric. Couric was all about asking Hill about her 'feelings' and such. No policy or anything. Hill is known as a cold fish so all these feelings type of questions simply waste time. Couric is no journalist.
According to an article in the newspaper today, Obama is going to be interviewed on ABC News on Monday night. He voiced his opinion about all of Hill's 'experience' : "I think the fact of the matter is that Senator Clinton is claiming basically the entire eight years of the Clinton presidency as her own, except for the stuff that didn't work out, in which case she says she has nothing to do with it," Obama said. So true. Now she is claiming credit for peace in Northern Ireland. I don't recall Maddy Allbright ever placing any credit with Hill. Or anyone else, for that matter. Hill does have a healthy ego.
The truth is that the only credit to success she can claim is that she married Bill Clinton after going to Ivy League undergrad and Law School. Had she not, we would have never heard of her. She's quite the feminist, huh. But don't worry your pretty little head about Hill - Barbra Streisand has come out in support of her. Considering she was banned from the White House after being caught in a compromising position with Bill, that's generous of her. Maybe she'd like another play date.
And we have more victimhood from Hillary. She says she is now forced to go negative in her campaigning against Obama and Edwards. Those mean boys won't be nice to her so she just has to do it. Otherwise, of course, she would never do such a thing. You wait, as soon as Oprah starts drawing crowds for Obama the Hillary hit machine will throw all kinds of dirt her way and muddy Obama in the process. Hillary and her people are the definition of nasty. Let's not forget she had a flunky steal 1500 FBI files on Republicans during the first weeks of her first administration with Bill. Not to mention all the IRS audits on Republican critics.
I guess they 'made' her do it.
