Clinton spells out the meaning of "hope"

| 9 Comments

RADNOR, PA.—A girl named Hope just asked Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) how she is going to help children. And that started Clinton riffing about her favorite poster in Pennsylvania—one that spells out the signature Obama phrase, Hope. Hope however, is also the name of the town where Bill Clinton was born, as in "the man from Hope."

Here's what "hope" spells out for Clinton: Hillary Offers Proven Experience.

THE ONLY EXPERIENCE SHE HAS, IS THAT NEW YORK HAS LOST A BUNCH
OF JOBS, SHE PROMISED TO BRING TO THE STATE!
AFTER THIS LOSS, I HOPE SOMEONE TAKES HER SENATE SEAT TOO!
SHE NEEDS A SHOT AND A BEER IN THE WORSE WAY!
AND DEAR HOPE, I HOPE YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET ON FOODSTAMPS WITH THE
OTHER 28 MILLION PEOPLE!

Yes, Hillary is the real agent for vision, hope, and change in this election.

I saw her recently in person. I was astounded. She is so personable, warm, genuine, funny, and smart. She understands and can talk about the issues very well. But what I noticed most was how I started to feel calmer and more optimistic and more inspired about what we can achieve in America as her talk went on. It wasn't like an "opiate for the masses" kind of thing, either. Just a growing realization that Hillary loves this country, respects us all as citizens, believes in setting really high goals (like universal healthcare, and energy independence), and has the stamina to work until they're accomplished.

Please go see her if you get a chance. She's not what the press guys say.

I know now what an outstanding American Hillary is. And what an outstanding President she will be if America gives her the chance.

Hillary Only Peddles Exaggerations. H.O.P.E!

Hillary Only Peddles Exaggerations! HOPE

(Second time I am writing this on blog--did not make it the first time).

Didn't you mean that OBAMA only peddles exaggerations? 'Hope', 'Change' and 'Yes we can' are three for starters from Mr All show and no go.

I Think this one is more Genuine,

Hilliary Offers Political Excuses

Angel--don't you have some phones you need to jam?

HOPE IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA!

And another take on HOPE for Sen. O: Hang On Pompous Elitist, Hillary can help you, too.
