Hillary's well-played hand

A well-played hand must be noted.

Hillary Clinton has been working hard to win over the NYC First Responders ever since the Cops and Firefighters of 9/11 booed her at Madison Square Garden. Say what you will about her, she is patient, and she will do what it takes - over time - to achieve her goals.

With this pronouncement, she has made a significant and lasting inroad with them.

The only politician who can say he is now chummier with the First Responders, not just in NYC, but in the nation, is Rudy Giuliani.

Very smart move. Coming right on the heels of her meeting with Mother Sheehan and declaring no on John Roberts, to appease the whackadoo base, she comes back and goes "centrist" where it can't hurt her (the whackadoos don't much care about the IFC), and scoops up the Responders on the way.

I will never vote for her myself. Not ever. I voted for a Clinton once and that will be the first and last time. But...that was well-played.

She's smart, so smart. Scarry how smart she is because she ends up with good results.

That's why we should be very leery of her, because even with her smarts, she doesn't really stand for much, she just stands for whatever will help her at that particular moment with that particular political group.

She will, I fear, go far.

Why does she want to be President?

What did she do for the eight years she ran the White House, while Bill was distracted?

Do I respect her? I don't know her.

Who knows her best? Her husband.

I respect her as much as her husband respects her.
