GF, could you give a short explanation of the conservative dislike for hillary? i understand that she's incredibly unpopular among republicans and right-leaning americans but i'm not 100% certain i understand the basis for it. she doesn't have the voting record of a kennedy. and while she was married to a democractic president, it was one of the most moderate democratic administrations of the last 50 years ("the era of big government is over"?). i'm not trying to be argumentative, i'm just genuinely curious where the visceral dislike comes from.

Because with respect to the entirety of domestic and social policy, she is an old-style Soviet: She knows what's best, and if you want to go to your own doctor, then both of you will end up in prison. Her closest brethren in this respect (among those mentioned by allegedly serious people as presidential prospects) are Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Huckabee.

But I tell you without hesitation that, when San Francisco is nuked by the Islamists, I would far rather have Hilly in the White House than the naive and ignorant Obama, or the cynical and ignorant Edwards.
