This is Why They Wanted Hillary Clinton's White House Schedule?


The National Archives released 11,000 pages of scheduling documents covering 2900 days of Hillary Clinton's time as first lady.

So on the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq, ABC News used those documents to post a "stained blue dress" investigation with seemingly the sole purpose of humiliating Clinton.

What other purpose does it serve?

  1. Does Hallmark make greeting cards for "Stained Blue Dress Day"?

  2. Bill Clinton did not have oral sex with Monica. She had oral sex on him.

    Straight people just don't know what to say.

    With all this primary campaign crap going on, I still down't hold it against Hillary...still don't. If she can win it fair and square, I can put my Obama button down and put on a Clinton button...I said "if".

  3. A lot of outlets ran with stories like that. It wasn't just ABC.

  4. Who the fuck cares? This is one reason why I wasn't all that excited about another Clinton presidency... nothing against Hillary regarding this, but I just really don't want to hear all about Monica and Bill again. She blew him, she saved the stained dress (eew), and that's that. Is there really anything more to be learned? Jeez, you'd think she fisted him in the Oval Office, for Pete's sake.

    And Derrick, you're 100% right. If Hillary can win it without cheating, I'll give her my vote. Same with Barack.

  5. Had the same take on the ABC report—incredulity. I really do hate when people play the blame-the-media game so many times to obscure the real culprits in a given situation, but more and more I find myself deeply disrespecting the MSM. They're currently attacking Obama relentlessly. Why? Not because they're vetting all the candidates, but because an SNL sketch shamed them into being more critical. The stain is all over the media, and it's harder to get out than cum.

  6. This is the kind of crap that will dog her the rest of her days in what ever higher office she lands.

    And if you go back to my comments on Clinton from last year; I pegged it. White Water is resurfacing. Suddenly there is an interest in all that material. Gee... golly... ya think the conservative think tank that funded that disgusting and brutal investigation just pitched out those files?

    If she gets hot in this election again, look for ALL of it to come back out. I would not be surprised if Ken Starr even starts popping up on talk shows and FOX.

  7. Everything is political. The Clinton campaign released the records to blunt the news about Obama's speech. They knew the blue dress story would come up. It was more important to shine the spotlight back onto Mrs. Clinton. She's a very smart person.

  8. So last night on the 5th Anniversary of this fake war in Iraq with THOUSANDS of people(protesters) marching down Market Street in San Francisco(and hopefully elsewhere in this country)this is what ABC news and Brian Ross' "Investigative Team" offers up to the American public. What a pathetic shame the news media has turned into in this world. Disgusting.

  9. The media is still in love with Bill's cock.

  10. Has anyone seen the White House? It's a huge building - does the media expect her to be under Bill's ass 24/7?

    Why is this even important?

  11. If the blue dress reminder will keep her (AND BILL) out of the White House, then GOOD! IMPORTANT things are not being discussed concerning Hillary, because Obama has chosen to stay clear of the Monica thing. BUT, it says something about Hillary that she can be LIED to so easily, by men, and believe them. EVERYONE knew Bill was lying about Monica, EXCEPT HILLARY? I knew. Didn't you? BUT, in spite of Bill's past (i.e. Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones), Hillary believed Bill's denials, totally? And when Bill told her the truth about Monica, she started hyperventilating and couldn't breath, according to HER. YET, she tells us she is the COOL HEAD we want answering the phone at 3 in the morning, if there is an emergency?

    AND Bush LIES to her about Iraq, and she BELIEVES him, when there were people out there, like Joe Wilson (and others) refuting what Bush was saying. And around 20 other Senators, including Byrd, were saying NO NO NO, trying to introduce SANITY to Hillary, and those others. BUT, she CHOSE to ignore ALL but BUSH? SHE helped put us in Iraq. How can that be forgiven by the Democratic Party? Especially when she has not BEGGED for forgiveness. So HAUL out Monica, if that helps get rid of the possibility of another 8 years of the Hill AND BILL show.

  12. Mainstream media lost all credibility over their lousy, weak, pandering Bush/Cheney/Iraq coverage.The only people who pay attention to them anymore are hillbillys and over 60's.

    Posted by: secretagentman | Mar 20, 2008 11:15:43 AM

  13. I don't see this as being terribly different from the Obama in Arab-esque garb photo. Is anyone surprised that this is being resurrected? Politics are so predictable it's hard to continue feining digust or sympathy. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, it will play dirty politics like a duck.

  14. i wonder what new sex scandal will occur if hilary enters the white house, now that clinton will have even more time to chase the ladies. that's if he is not the one running the country.

    Posted by: johnosahon | Mar 20, 2008 11:23:15 AM

  15. First of all, the Clintons did not release the records, a third party won a court case that allowed them to be released. Second, 4800 items have been blacked out, so a large portion is still unknown. Third, NAFTA, she claims to be against NAFTA from the start, when she had a dinner to support NAFTA, to help push it through congress. Fourth, to see if she was liberal with her claims of experience during her husband's administration.

    Another note, She will not win the nomination unless she steals it. She is doing nothing but hurting the party by staying in this race, and losing all credibility and political capital she has left by staying in this.

  16. I don't believe for a moment that Hillary was the innocent little ingenue. She's far to savvy and intelligent to play the dupe so easily.

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are a very effective team. Don't think she's unaware of Bill's philandering. Do you really think that she didn't know? Isn't it possible that they have an agreement, much like the majority of gay relationships that I know, allowing extramarital shenanigans as long as the rules are followed and it's kept discreet? I think that's far more likely than Hillary Clinton playing the fool for some man. Child, please.

    Hillary wasn't horrified that Bill got his pinga smoked by Monica. She was horrified that he didn't follow the rules and keep it discreet and out of the press. And if Hillary Clinton ever has (or had) a similar dalliance, you better believe we'll never hear a word about it.

  17. This is no way to treat the future President of the US

  18. I am really surprised by how complacent we are in this society. I don't know how the hell an asshole like George W Bush got elected. Who the hell does he relate to? and all of these fat bald white republicans...who the hell wants them telling us what to do? What happen to the rebelious hippes and free thinkers.
    Hillary or Obama is doesn't matter...it is a change for the good. Stop blaming Hillary for her husbands indiscretions. She knew what he was doing, as they always do. I mean, what does this have to do with the election?

  19. From THATGUY: "Another note, She will not win the nomination unless she steals it. She is doing nothing but hurting the party by staying in this race, and losing all credibility and political capital she has left by staying in this."

    I agree 100%. Right now, and accordng to Slate.com's delegate tracking counter, she would need 28% of all the remaining states to catch up to Obama in delegates. That is a Herculean task, which will not be acheived, given Obama's favor in Montana, South Carolina and a few other states.
    Hence, the ONLY way she could conceivably take the nomination IS by stealing it.
    I shudder to imagine (perhaps because I cannot imagine) what American voters (that is you, me and the millions who cast a vote in all the primaries) will do, how they will react if this goes to Denver with all the numbers on Obama's side and her being given the nomination.

    I'd be interested in hearing some of what others think would happen in Denver (and in other cities, etc.) i this came to pass.
    It is frightening, to say the least.

  20. "What happen to the rebelious hippes and free thinkers. "

    Paul, those rebellious hippies and free thinkers are the baby boomers, many of whom turned into the very people they hated so much in the 60s. From the left wing to the right wing they swung, losing none of their zealotry in the process.

    I, for one, am ready for the next generation of leaders, who don't get off on taking investment advice from Dennis Hopper on the Ameritrade commercials.

  21. Hillary was compelled to release documents no one except slimy conservatives (who forced the release) care about. She's a lady and a leader and she'll transcend the Hillary-hating media and the gutter-snipe Liberal Democrat cabal pushing for the novice from Illinois who wants us to believe he listened to his pastor's homilies for 17 years and never heard him utter a single un-Christian word. Go Hill!

  22. ...unfortunately there is no such thing as winning "fair and square..." the other side will always claim that something was not on the up and up...that's not to be cynical but realistic...

    Posted by: yeahisaidit | Mar 20, 2008 12:24:58 PM

  23. oh, and p.s. I'm one of those who would vote for BO or HRC (in spite of all the "devil with the blue dress on" business)

    Posted by: yeahisaidit | Mar 20, 2008 12:29:19 PM

  24. "she would need 28% of all the remaining states to catch up to Obama in delegates."

    That should read, "to win by 28% in each state, etc." Sorry 'bout that.

  25. Billary was forced to release the White House records by a FOIA request that they had fought for months. The reemergence of the sex scandal allegation is a red herring and is being used by Billary to distract the media and a gullible public. Billary fought the request because the records indicate that--contrary to her claims of "experience"--she was not a participant in the important decisions made during the Clinton administration. She was a bystander, not a participant in formulating or executing policy. The one matter for which she had responsibility was the healthcare reform debacle. It is those who support healthcare reform most ardently who should be most upset about her policy and strategy fiasco.

    Furthermore, again contrary to her claims during this campaign, she fully supported NAFTA and actively assisted in its passage. The records show her activities at the time in lobbying for passage.

    Billary put the blame on others for the delay in releasing the records but it was their minions who caused the delay by drawing out the redacting process. Billary's former defenders remain at work prohibiting the release of any information, of which the public has a right to examine, by establishing a ponderous extra-governmental review procedure.

    A similar stall and delay process is taking place with regard to release of Billary's tax forms. Billary does not want them released until after the primaries are concluded because they will put the lie to HRC's populist mantle of fighting for the "little guy/blue collar worker" against the evil fatcat corporations. Bill has made millions of dollars trading on Hillary's influence as a Senator and as a candidate for President. This is also a repeat of history where HRC sat on the Board of WalMart and advised them how to obstruct the formation of unions.

    Do we really want to return to the days of "missing" billing records that mysteriously reappear in HRC's personal living quarters with noticeable omissions? Do we really want to return to such dilatory tactics?
