Jan. 20 (Bloomberg) -- New York Senator Hillary Clinton today said she will seek to become the first female U.S. president, declaring ``I'm in. And I'm in to win.''
Clinton, 59, the wife of former President Bill Clinton, said on her Web site that she formed an exploratory presidential committee. She already leads in polls for the Democratic nomination, topping rivals such as former vice presidential candidate John Edwards and Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
While polls indicate that Clinton has the best shot yet for a woman to win the White House, she also faces opposition across the country. Her unfavorable ratings hover in the 40 percent range, well above Edwards or Obama. She also has to overcome her vote to support the unpopular war in Iraq and what she calls ``the scars'' from her failed health-care plan in the 1990s.
We already had one bad president named Clinton. We don't need another, especially one who would be worse than Jimmy Carter. Hillary shares Billy's distain for the Constitution with her militant anti 2nd amendment stance, voting for the Kennedy ammo ban, ugly gun ban, and gun show ban.
Her infamous health care plan would have raised taxes immensely and would make it a 15 year felony to go to a doctor not authorized by the iron heel of government. One woman complained about being pidgeonholed into a big government plan. The response. "It's time to put the common good, the national interest, ahead of individuals." How Soviet....
She was behind Bill Clinton's viscious railroading and malicious prosecution of Billy Dale.
She supported trade agreements harmful to Michigan. Billy signed NAFTA and GATT.
After Denise Rich gave big bucks to Hillary's campaign, Marc Rich was pardoned by Billy. Money talks, BS Walks.
There is good news about her run however. Hillary, Obama, Edwards, Biden, Dodd, Kucinich, Kerry, maybe Bill Richardson, and maybe Al Sharpton all get to destroy each other over the next two years. It will make things very interesting. I'll like to be there with a camera to see someone tell the truth about Hillary - the only way she got where she did is because of marrying Billy. She certainly didn't make it on her own.
Outside of Bill Clinton's work, she's just another two bit junior senator with only one term and one month to her credit. Step aside, junior.
