Our Next President



The following is an example of why Hillary Clinton will be our next President. As reported on Drudge...

HILLARY CLINTON TO SUPPORT BUSH COURT NOMINEE

**Exclusive**

Senator Hillary Clinton has confided to associates that she intends to vote FOR Bush Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Unless some unforeseen development occurs around Roberts, Clinton will throw her support behind confirmation, says a top source.

"Look, we're not thrilled President Bush is in office and gets to make these choices," said a top Hillary source, "but we have to make the best of the situation until the next election!"

With her support of Roberts, Clinton ignores pressure from the reactionary-activist wing of the Democrat party.

"She is simply doing what is right for the country, not MOVEON.ORG," the Clinton insider explained.

Developing...

Hillary understands that she has bona fides with the Left and doesn't need to kowtow to them. It's unlikely that the whacko Left (ie the Dem base) will defect from Hillary's camp in 2008 over this issue, since they'll rationalize it as "he would've been nominated anyway..." (If you go to DU right now, you'll see NOTHING about this story - of course, it's all Plame, all the time over there these days.)

Second, what Dem politicians make the Right go batty (although not as batty as the Left is over W)? Bill & Hillary... And this emotional reaction from the far right will become the object of scrutiny - not Hillary's positions on the issues or her leadership abilities.

And over the next 3 years, she is going to be talking to the center of the political spectrum with a couple of bones thrown towards the rabid Left - nothing whacky or worth remembering by the media, however.
