"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

DeMediacratic Nation: CNN.com - Sen. Clinton: House 'has been run like a plantation' - Jan 17, 2006

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Peter King has this to say about Senator Clinton.

When I saw this on the news this AM, I thought Ms. Clinton and her crew thought this might be a great chance to jump on the Rosa Parks memorial bandwagon.

Somehow it is the Bush Administration that is doing damage, but this is always spoken of by people from the left, as they instigate racial separation (President criticized).

Then you have someone's thoughts/comments at the Daily Kos saying "Bush, in that rare moment Monday, was right in saying that King and Parks helped wake America from its slumber." Then turns right around and slams him "But no sooner had he honored their legacies than Bush himself returned to his job, doing his best to erode the very tradition the day's honoree represented."

Obviously, the above statement is meant more for those that follow and are thereby in the "know," but I guess what I am trying to point out is that it didn't take a specific action from Bush following his statement. Bush is bad, so the things he does are bad; therefore even if he says/does something good/nice he is just back to the same old evil.

At the offset of this rant I had intended to point out that "Hillary" may want to back off her remarks with the likes of Reverend Al supporting her, but based on the QuickVote numbers from CNN readers now:

What do you think of Sen. Clinton's comment that the Bush administration is "one of the worst" in U.S. history?
On the mark 62% 64030 votes
Over the top 38% 39009 votes
Total: 103039 votes

She may not need to. Which says more to me about the people that take the time to vote in these things than anything.

Her remarks seem to come from one that understands the issue like she does (although I don't think she understands or stands for anything other than Hillary Clinton), since I just don't understand what the comments have to do with anything. The house "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," honestly I do not know what she's talking about.
