THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — She says she’s done in 2012. She’s tired. Being Secretary of State in the best of times is physically and mentally draining, and the last 4 years has been anything but the best of times. However, she juggled crises better than most of her peers holding the position and has endured the President’s entire term, all the while impressing everyone, including her detractors. A nice comfy retirement on the lecture circuit is what awaits people of achieving these accomplishments in normal times.
But we are in anything but normal times. We’re at a historical turning point of Biblical proportions. Around the women are facing setbacks never foreseen in modern times, and this is never more so than right here at home in the United States. Hillary Clinton is the one person with the means and influence to upend the Republican War on Women.
If Hillary were on the 2012 ballot, she’d have an easier time than Obama winning back the White House. A Obama-Clinton 2012 ticket would be the ticket, but that isn’t going to happen. Besides, she wants to retire, remember?
So I’m asking that Hillary reconsider her retirement plans and take on something of historical significance. In the end maybe she’ll be able to leave behind a Clinton legacy that her husband hoped to do, but squandered away.
Hillary Clinton at the Women in the World Summit:
“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me, but they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress. They want to control how we act. They even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies.
“Yes, it is hard to believe that even here at home, we have to stand up for women’s rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us, because America needs to set an example for the entire world.”

I take exception to the statement that Bill Clinton squandered anything. He became president with a huge deficit, and left us with a huge surplus for the first time in ages. If he had his way,we would have had health care 20 years ago. He and Al shrunk the government by 40%, reduced taxes for the middle class, and presided over eight years of peace and prosperity. He left with a 65% approval the attempts of the opposition to ruin his reputation. He reestablished our credibility on the world stage. He did have his Monica and NAFTA, but one was his weakness and the other was his compromise. He is one of the finest political minds on this planet, and has accomplished more to eliminate world poverty than probably any single person on the history of the planet. Squandered? Not if you know even a fraction of the facts.
I do know the facts . . . Clinton could have been a FDR, but is resigned to a much better than average position.
I’d say Clinton could have done so much more if it wasn’t for the Monica scandal. Yes, he did do a lot but more could have been accomplished if there hadn’t been those distractions.
But on a different aspect of this, back when Hillary and Obama were running, I thought it would have been great if it was President Hillary and VP Obama for 2 terms then Obama in 2016 for another 8 years for a whole 16 year run of Democratic rule 🙂
Honestly, I HOPE we see Hilary for 2016!
We need more Democracy in America, and she would be downright amazing! And you gotta admit, having Bill as the First Husband would give him even more chances to do good and further improve his “less than perfect” reputation!
