Hillary on Plantations and Cronyism

Jan 17, 2006

Yesterday at a Martin Luther King, Jr. day event, Hillary Clinton mades some egregious remarks, only one of which has drawn attention of the media. Had she refrained from comparing the current political state to a plantation, the more politically important statement that she made would have come through loud and clear. I say that her other major point was more important because it really sums up what many people think about the current administration, but few with a voice have had the courage to say,

We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism, we have incompetence

I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country.

I really wish this quote hadn’t been so overshadowed by the remark about plantations, as she was right on the mark. Sounds like the sort of thing a vice president would say.
