Ain't Hillary the cutest thing!

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | Isn't it just darling the way that strong woman, Hillary Clinton, has been asserting her little self recently in this big, bad man's world? It took her only a few decades in politics to realize that to sound sensible, she need merely parrot what conservatives have been saying all along. And, specifically, what a man named George W. Bush has been saying.

Her most recent jumping on the manwagon came last week, when bombers and guerrilla fighters killed 55 in Iraq. Lifting a page from intellectually uncurious, "selected" president (previous parroting) George W. Bush, she declared, "The fact that you have these suicide bombers now…is to me an indication of their failure."

This revelation came on the heels of her discovering the adoption alternative to abortion, and jump-starting a Democratic movement to find common ground on the abortion debate. Speaking to a pro-choice crowd in Albany a few weeks ago, she emphasized promoting adoption, recognizing the influence of religion in abstinence, and championing teen celibacy. (In another novel concept, it turns out there's apparently something "sad" and "even tragic" about what we'd been led to believe was a neutral choice.)

Prior to that event, she told a Boston audience, "I've always been a praying person" (how is she spelling that?), and the Boston Globe reported that Hillary invoked G-d at least six times and suggested that folks who "live out their faith in the public square" have their place in society.

Last year, this leader-ette saw an opportunity that she and her husband hadn't during the eight years when it mattered, and joined a growing chorus calling for an end to Palestinian use of children as tools of war.

Finally, a few months after Bush's Axis of Evil speech, Mrs. C asserted, "Our challenge is much more pervasive than it would be if we were just facing one enemy in one place…the Middle East, Iraq, North Korea, and Iran. There's a relatively long list that we believe are linked to the al Qaeda network — in the Philippines, in Indonesia and in Yemen and other places. That makes it very clear that this is a global network."

After all those exasperating years of huffing and puffing, this female warrior is realizing that all she had to do was huff and puff what conservatives have been saying. She could have saved herself a lifetime of dizzying mental machinations that can tucker a poor girl out so!

Of course, in "remaking herself," as Clinton watchers have called it, this independent woman is merely continuing in her own tradition of riding a powerful man's coattails. (Which the Sopranos wives agreed was a good example for them all: Look at Hillary, they said— she was able use her marriage to start a little something of her own.)

Indeed, Hillary Clinton has emerged as a role model for bimbos everywhere. Meanwhile, the concept of a Condoleezza Rice, who understands events as they happen rather than two years later, leaves them cold.

Still, it's good to see that in her professional prime, little Miss Hillary is coming to accept her place and understand that her biggest contribution to this world is filling a vacant seat and quietly learning from men and smarter women. In her current incarnation as a moderate, conservative-friendly Democrat, she is at the least damaging that she has been or will be. Enjoy it while it lasts.
