i agree with david geffen

...who says of Hillary Clinton:

"Not since the Vietnam War has there been this level of disappointment in the behavior of America throughout the world, and I don't think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is -- and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton? -- can bring the country together."

Meaning..? Women shouldn't be ambitious? Female politicians shouldn't be ambitious? Ambition necessarily equates with lack of ability to unify?

No, none of those, britney.

Meaning that, if Clinton loves this country enough to be its president, she should have the grace, class and respect of its citizens to step aside for the crucial 2008 elections. We Democrats cannot afford to be divided on this one, as "divide and conquer" is what the GOP does best. I myself, a liberal Democrat if there ever was one, will NOT vote for Clinton because I believe that she is a DINO: Democrat In Name Only. She has only recently started pandering to her Dem roots because it is politically prudent to do so.

I am afraid that if Clinton runs, we will be saying hello to President Jeb Jethro Bush in 2008, and that should be enough for anyone to blow their brains out.
