View Full Version : Pirro makes it official

GOP challenger enters ring against Clinton (http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/08/10/ny.pirro/index.html)
I love this strategy, my campaigining against Clinton's potential 2008 presidential bid, she may be able to force Clinton to pledge to finish her term as a senator. Such a pledge would help the GOP if Clinton then runs for President.

Do you really think that Clinton is going to fall for such a dumb, obvious trick? No. I can't believe you're taking Pirro seriously. DId you read the NYT write-up of her event? It was a total disaster. I am not even sure Pirro is going to get the nomination.

Ian, you typical NYC snob!
I mean, what is 36 seconds of complete dead air time, a complete question dodge on every basic pertinent event from any news story, a flip-flop that even the GOP would be proud of, and a complete inability to find part of a speech that you just finished up on a few minutes prior in comparison with the immortality of being a Senator from the Empire State?
New Yorkers should be glad to have her. You petty, blue state fascist-- you probably were just waiting to rail against her just long enough before drinking some espresso (with the pinky up, of course), going to hang out in the Hamptons (or SOHO or Poughkeepsie -- what's the difference?), and stare at some decadent art, or something like that.
I hope that you feel happy about yourself.

When you put it that way, I would like some espresso!
So, it looks like her campaign will be an exact repeat of Rick Lazio's. She's not from here! She doesn't care about us.
Perhaps Sen. Lazio can give some advice on that...

All the marital troubles of Giuliani; all the electability of Lazio. Pirro, 2006!

Well, that's really astute and all, Ian, but you are forgetting the most pressing fact of the matter:
People Magazine liked her.
Watch out Hillary! The chattering masses are amassing!

All the marital troubles of Giuliani
Glass houses and stones, Mrs. Clinton.

Actually, she's in fine shape to even tell New York "yes, I have grander ambitions" and, as per usual, the State thereof wouldn't exactly be bothered.
""But New Yorkers don't mind carpetbaggers; in fact, they like them," he said. "They voted for Kennedy, they voted for Clinton. And certainly, New Yorkers would not see it as the worst thing for one of theirs to be considered for president or, ultimately, being president. There is a certain amount of pride in that, in a sense, she then becomes 'one of ours.' Psychologically, that sense of pride may feed an underlying need for confirmation of supremacy among New Yorkers."
Thanks for playing, Jeanine. Enjoy Westchester. You'll won't be leaving it for a while.
