fair and balanced

I thought Hillary did pretty well last night on O'Reilly. She put aside that ice queen persona and came across as likable and detailed in her proposals. She was even honest enough to say that she hadn't made up her mind on some policies.

And she's all about policy proposals. Copious detail after copious detail about stuff she'd do as President -- 'regulations, regulations, regulations,' -- which is a stark contrast to the pathetically lightweight Obama, who is specifically and painfully non-specific about what he'd do as President.

Say what you want about O'Reilly. I thought they had had a good back-and-forth. It was great to see a Democrat challenged by a journalist for a change, instead of the gentle, passive treatment they usually receive from the MSM, although he let her get away with a big lie about the supposed 'greatness' of the Clinton economy in the '90's by way of comparison to the supposed 'terrible' Bush economy.

Democrats would be smart to utilize the Fox News Channel more often to communicate their message... they might start winning some elections.

This was perhaps the most appealing version of Hillary Clinton that I have ever seen.

As panic spreads about an Obama presidency, Hillary Clinton starts to look better and better as the "anyone but Obama" candidate.

And as you say, she does seem to have at least a passing understanding of the issues to the point where she is capable of debating them.

There were times when she tried to essentially evade a specific question by giving a generic answer, but O'Reilly pressed her and was actually able to get yes or no questions answered here and there.

Hey, JM.

I'm coming to Boston. More details to follow.

Hillary is a much, much better general election candidate than the Magic Negro.

McCain easily bests Barack. A Clinton/McCain matchup might concern the GOP only because she sounds convincing to the ignorant.

I've got a friend in Brookline.

She's hot. You'll love her.
