HRC Launches Foray in Warner Home Turf

Hey, What’s Hillary Clinton doing in Northern Virginia? According to the WaPo‘s Michael Shear, (“Clinton Cashes in in Warner Territory), some 200 people gathered at the Old Town Hilton in Alexandria–Gov. Warner’s old stomping grounds–to bash Bush administration fiscal policies and raise money.

Clinton tactfully praised Warner, a presumed challenger in her bid for the Democratic Party nomination in the 2008 presidential election. Wrote Shear: “Clinton praised Warner, wishing him a speedy recovery from a broken hand “so he’s back in fighting shape and fighting spirit as soon as possible.” But, Shear added:

Clinton’s decision to raise money in Warner’s home town put Virginia Democrats in an awkward spot. Some are wowed by Clinton. But many of the same Democrats have privately pledged to support Warner if he decides to make a run for the nomination.

    How ever much I dislike Hil, her policies, or her ethical standards she and her husband are some of the best campaigners ever. Maybe some of the best beauracrats ever.

    I wouldn’t vote for either of these two, but I’d prefer Warner over Hilary any day of the week. And I have a feeling so would a lot of other old school democrats below the Mason Dixon Line.

  2. You are correct, sir!
