    Back bencher in the Illinois Senate who couldn't muster the guts to vote on critical issues?
    Jeremiah Wright roots?
    Tony Rezko roots?
    William Ayers, Saul Alinsky roots?

    I'm still interested in this poster's explanation for the above comments.

    Its difficult to explain really.. Its my collected opinion of her throughout the primary election, and how she changed and went from using fair methods to cowardly and petty methods to try to win the primary. It is also a result of her changing her standings and integrity along the whole primary process and becoming more extreme and closer to a conservative view than her claimed liberal view. Some of her extreme statements and stands towards the end(of the primaries) and her petty way of not admitting her loss kinf of tipped me over from not REALLY liking her in the beginning, to more and more dislike her, and in the end just dislike her strongly.

    Perhaps that helps?

    Huh, so you feel that Obama's selection of this petty, vindictive person as SoS enhanced Obama's image. Ok. How does the selection enhance Obama's image, an image that was already extremely favorable?

    No, it did the opposite, it dented his image, partly broke it. Bumped, I meant as in a car that has crashed.. My mistake, silly choice of word.

    Hillary Clinton takes charge at State Department
    Before a raucous, cheering crowd of about 1,000 people, the country's 67th secretary of state pledged to boost the morale and resources of the diplomatic corps and promised them a difficult but exciting road ahead.

    Actually, it was just a misunderstanding and bad choice of words. I watch her as incredibly unfavorable to Obamas administration. My personal opinion of her is that she is INSANE.

    Uh, speaking of dense...before speaking for Maximus, let him answer the question about his comment.

    Given Maximus' response I suspect you'll be gracious enough to at least acknowledge your mistake if not apologize for actin the fool?
