HER WORDS DISQUALIFY HER.

Well in advance of the next presidential circus, here are excerpts of renegade Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, conceding the 2008 nomination to Barack Obama.
The way to continue our fight now, to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passion, our strength, and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States.
So far, standard good-government stuff.  Democratic politicians believe this stuff, and Democrat voters, despite evidence to the contrary, keep voting for it.  As if it has ever worked.
I intended to win back the White House and make sure we have a president who puts our country back on the path to peace, prosperity and progress. And that's exactly what we're going to do, by ensuring that Barack Obama walks through the doors of the Oval Office on January 20, 2009.
An automobile maker who sells you a lemon has to replace it. Where do we get the last now 5 1/2 years back?
But on the day we live in an America where no child, no man, and no woman is without health insurance, we will live in a stronger America. That's why we need to help elect Barack Obama our president.
So that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?
But on the day we live in an America whose middle class is thriving and growing again, where all Americans, no matter where they live or where their ancestors came from, can earn a decent living, we will live in a stronger America. And that is why we must help elect Barack Obama our president.
An "economic stimulus" with as many constraints imposed to placate special interests within the Democrat coalition isn't going to provide much stimulus.
We'll have to work hard to foster the innovation that will make us energy independent and lift the threat of global warming from our children's future. But on the day we live in an America fueled by renewable energy, we will live in a stronger America. And that is why we have to help elect Barack Obama our president.
Solyndra, anyone?
We'll have to work hard to bring our troops home from Iraq and get them the support they've earned by their service. But on the day we live in an America that's as loyal to our troops as they have been to us, we will live in a stronger America. And that is why we must help elect Barack Obama our president.
Yes, and administrators in the VA get bonuses while veterans die, nameless numbers on lists that are later misplaced.
This is now our time to do all that we can to make sure that, in this election, we add another Democratic president to that very small list of the last 40 years and that we take back our country and once again move with progress and commitment to the future.
Conveniently for 2008: the disaster that was Lyndon Johnson isn't part of the reckoning.  And "take back our country"?  Whom from, Mrs Clinton?

Perhaps she will be able to sell the same kind of utopianism to enough people to get the electoral votes.  Or perhaps sufficient voters will be resistant to this kind of overweening, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you, or fight for you, or tax somebody else" this time.
