On a recent Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton walked with her husband onto a stage at the New York Sheraton to cheers and whoops and a standing ovation that only got louder as she tried to quiet things down.

I wish she would continue as Secretary of State!.....but what ever she chooses to do, she will do with gusto!

I think, if she decides to run for Prez in 2016, she should stay Sec of State now. A sabbatical now would take her out of the public eye. At any rate, I really wish she would stay Sec of State - she is phenomenal. However, and I know we're not supposed to talk about her hair, but she REALLY needs to cut it into a short, sporty, easy-to-maintain cut...growing it out long makes her look old and tired!

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Stephanie McCrummen A long read but well worth the time and the clicks. Sec. Clinton is a remarkable person and I would love to see her stay in the public eye and then run again for president. What ever she decides is up to her and what ever that might be I will always be grateful for her service to this country. Read and noted.

Hillary Clinton has always been beloved by me. She's proven time and time again that she's the real deal. I would LOVE it if she were to become our first female president, but at this point in her life, she needs time to rest and reflect. Her schedule would tire out a teenager! I wish her the very best and offer her my gratitude for being a tireless defender of women and children and for making this country and this world a better place!

I wish the best for Hillary Clinton in whatever she does. I would love for her to be our first female president. I would be first in line to vote for her if she ever decides to run for President. Thanks for sharing this article.

One of the few fences I'm on. Let's not forget that Bill bilked the Haitians out of about $200 million, by keeping the allowed 85% of the donations to his foundation. Remember that $11 million wedding shortly after? Little Bush too. Red cross?

Sorry, Carrie. People change with great wealth. Nothing against Hillary but she knows.

I hope she rest and then I hope she runs for President 2016. There is no doubt in my mind that she would win. If not I am grafeful for all she has done for our country and the world and I wish her well.

I don't believe Hillary Clinton will run in 2016. In case you folks haven't noticed, she looks tired and worn out. It wouldn't surprise me if she had a serious medical issue judging by the way she looks and acts.

Hillary is done and she should be. From everything I've read, there's no love between Obama and Hillary.

Run, run my children and hide - it's the wicked witch of the mid west!!! That's certainly what the interns and staffers did when they knew that the bad tempered; foul mouthed Hilly was coming. I have a wonderful picture of her on her broomstick if anyone would like it. LOL

Why Diane, since theres no love between Obama and you, that should make Hillary your friend.
 

Diane O. (149)
Tuesday November 27, 2012, 5:27 pm
Joanne, sorry, but your comment holds no value IMO. We all know that the DNC threw Hillary under the bus to make room for Obama. She hasn't forgotten what the DNC did to her. That supports my theory that there is no love lost between Hillary and Obama. Am I speculating? Yes. I'm also a realist. There's nothing wrong with Hillary except for the fact that she has always been in her husband's shadow and we all know Bill Clinton craves the limelight. It is for that reason that Hillary as president means we have a two for one because of Bill's ego. He'll always be in the way. I honestly believe Hillary is tired. Very tired. And who can blame her if she is?

The job she is doing require immense mental and physical energy their comes a time when your body start telling you to stop I think she need a break unless she has some other agenda to contest for President election in 2016 but id do not thing so she needs a break and spend time with family and later may help and work for her husband
 

Diane O. (149)

Parvez, I agree. She spends a great deal of time traveling around the world with different time zones and it takes a toll on the body. I've watched a vibrant woman with a big smile and a great deal of enthusiasm for her work deteriorate over the past four years. I know she is getting older but it appears to me that this job has taken a toll on her.

Yes, she needs a break.

You can NOT watch fox, spew their anti american lies and call yourself a "realist".

BTW, Diane. Only two presidents balanced the budget in the 20th century. TWO! Carter and Clinton. Get real!

If you did anything besides cook, shill for the fascists and spend your husbands money, you'd be half as tired as she is. You're like Norquist. An enemy of our state.

Greetings from Crazyland! 10 Instances of Fox Nation's Departure from Reality

By Mark Howard, AlterNet

Fox Nation is a website integral to the Fox news family. And their abuse of reality and truth is truly breathtaking. READ MOREĽ

Angry? I'm not angry. I'm frustrated by blind, fox shills like you. That's all. But is that how you really address the corrections to your drivel? No. It's how you avoid debate while in a complete denial state.

I check fox all the time. It is barely news except when the news casters talk about the talk in the other room. It is fascist controlled media. Another slice of your denial. Fox and Rove is 50% of why our country is in a depression. People like you are the other 50%.

Jason is allowed his opinion as much as you are yours Diane. None of his comments deserve being flagged. If you can not handle others criticizing your comments, perhaps you should stop making them instead of getting angry with others and becoming defensive.

Diane is just exercising the GOP way of banning free speech. She can dish out ridicule but apparently is unable to take it herself.
 

Diane O. (149)
Wednesday November 28, 2012, 4:05 pm
Oh, no, Roseann, I believe in freedom of speech and have stated that many many times here on Care 2. I actually enjoy reading how others feel about what is going on in the world. Jason has a problem with personally attacking those who don't agree with him. He has this vendetta against Fox News which, I feel, is unnatural. No one makes him watch Fox News. He needs to let that go. He should concentrate only on those news venues that appeal to him but for him to constantly attack Fox News is unnatural IMO. I don't attack the left wing biased media. Why? Because I simply don't care. They have their freedom of speech and I respect it. I read certain left wing media outlets every single morning because I want to read and understand how the left thinks. I'm like that. When I post, I want to post from a position of knowledge and if after reading from the left and the right I find my own position then I consider that a good political day.

I don't enjoy getting down in the mud with liberals. I'm out here to share another view from a republican. If I cannot do that then why are all of you here? We certainly cannot engage in conversation if we all feel the same way and post the same view points over and over and over again. Why do you think certain topics bring so many hits on a thread? It's because politically we disagree. If we all agreed there wouldn't be more than 10 posts per thread. Yes, I'm a realist. I don't get bogged down in personal attacks because they are childish and a total waste of time. We aren't here to attack people and spread anger. We are here to share how we feel.

Just like Roseann's comment to me that I can dish it out but can't take it.....that is such a childish statement. I'm here to state my position. You state yours. Jason spews hate and venom simply because I don't think like him. In fact, many people are incapable of thinking like Jason. The "hate" is a waste of time. No one ever takes another person's comments seriously when they are constantly attacking another person. Adults don't behave like that.

Carrie, Care 2 has a Code of Conduct. You should take the time to read it. Jason is constantly on a personal vendetta against republicans and he calls us names and spews hate. That's against the Code of Conduct. There is an option above this little box which says "send green star/flag as inappropriate. Why do you think they have "flag as inappropriate?" Why is it there?
 

Carrie B. (309)
Wednesday November 28, 2012, 4:12 pm
Diane, the point it Jason is not spewing hate toward you and you have no reason to flag his comments.

Since you have stated many times on many different threads that you are a fan of FOX news, you have left yourself open to a certain amount of disdain from those of us who see FOX as nothing more than a republican love fest. Nothing at all to do with news.

The code of conduct is not meant as a way of limiting others opinions because you don't like them Diane.

"Jason has a problem with personally attacking those who don't agree with him."

You keep getting everything all wrong. I don't NEED anyone to agree with me, I just NEED people to be right. We have a model. The 50s, 60s, & 70s. We almost had everything right. We were almost as close as societies can get. The far right, MIC, shadow government killed Kennedy and destroyed all of that. Reagan shifted the fascism gears and with the help of fox, bush/rove put fascism into over drive.
Everything you write, Diane, indicates that you agree with everything that is wrong. You're a very cruel, uncaring person. You just don't know it because you care for what is close to you. This isn't about you. It's about right and wrong, period.
Yup. Every forum has one and I'm it. No mincing of words for me, thank you. Nice belongs with niceties. This is most serious. Our future. If we can get you out of the way.

Jason, we will never agree because we are from two different worlds politically. You won't be able to get me out of the way. No need to try day after day.

I'll never stop fighting the scum bag, robber barons, Diane. As people get poorer and poorer, your world will be impacted more. Then it'll be to late to kelp. You can't build a strong enough fortress to keep them from your food. It's predicted. Don't be that fool. Haaa. Fat chance, eh?

Sorry, Jason, the majority of Americans have excellent rate, good jobs, money in the bank, little or no mortgages and have invested in retirement accounts. That's a fact. Remember 49% of Americans didn't vote for Obama for a reason.

You post like an extremist.
 

Carrie B. (309)

47% Diane and what was the reason? No, the majority of Americans do not have all you describe. Do you enjoy living in Disneyland?

OMG!!! Why am I still talking to this fox head simpleton? You're as out of touch as Romney is. She calls fox lies facts? Is this what a sociopath does?

We have about 90 million adults in our country. 45 million are now on food stamps. Thanks to mabus/mr. bush. People like me, that are eligible, are not, Add another 5 million.

"the majority of Americans have excellent rate, good jobs, money in the bank, little or no mortgages and have invested in retirement accounts."

NOTHING could be further from the truth! People are committing suicide over this depression, Shame is sweeping through lives through no fault of their own and we have to read this brain washed BS? OMG!!!!!

Hello --

When President Obama asked you to tell us what the middle-class tax cuts meant for your families, we knew you'd speak up. But I don't think any of us were prepared for this.

The stories started pouring in immediately. Within a couple hours, we received messages from tens of thousands of people. Folks from every state in the country took time to write in. You nearly took over Twitter, where the hashtag #My2K trended all day.

And people are starting to pay attention. News outlets are writing stories about how everyday Americans are engaged in this debate. Decision makers are coming to the sudden realization that they can't ignore the perspective of the middle class when it comes to cutting taxes.

You're changing an entire policy conversation. And we have to keep it up.

Tell us what $2,000 means to middle-class families.

There's no denying the power of your voices.

We heard from a woman in Alabama who explained that $2,000 was a crucial part of her family budget -- the choice between two house payments, three car payments, or medical prescriptions for a year.

We heard from a farmer in Michigan, just starting his business, who wants to use $2,000 to invest in two greenhouses so he can extend his growing season.

We heard from a dad in Indiana who did the math and realized that $2,000 will buy groceries for his family for 23.5 weeks.

We heard from graduate students working to pay down student loans and parents trying to help put their kids through school.

And these folks are not alone. Unless Congress acts, 114 million middle-class American families are staring down a tax increase starting January 1.

So we need you to join them. We're doing everything to draw attention to the stories you share with us. We're sharing them on Facebook and Twitter. We're putting them on the front page of the White House website.

Will you speak out today?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/my2k

Thanks,

David

Well then, Jason, looks like the democrats better get BUSY finding the spending cuts, don't you think?

Obama reminds me of "One Way Harrigan." It's either HIS way of the highway. Want to raise taxes? Fine, raise them but put spending cuts on the table which is absolutely necessary anyway!
