Rove At Work?

Hillary’s back and she’s mad as aech-ee-double-hockey-sticks…

Sen. Hillary Clinton was introduced by a Senate colleague to the state Democratic Party here as “the next great president of the United States” — and did nothing to deny it as she skewered the GOP.
“We are headed to a brave, new world of extremism, and we need to make clear we’re not going there,” she told a sellout crowd of 2,000 who paid $100 a head to see her. “We stand against their radical, reactionary right-wing agenda.”

Clinton sounded every bit the stumping presidential contender as she slammed the Republicans for driving up the national debt, wrecking overseas alliances and leading the nation on a domestic path “well outside the mainstream.”

She lambasted Republican members of Congress as “extras in the movie ‘I Robot’ ” who “mindlessly rubberstamp the agenda of this administration” and want to do “little more than fund the military and build some highways.”

And she scolded President Bush for flaunting a “prideful unilateralism” in the war on terrorism and warned the commander-in-chief that the United States “cannot direct the rest of the world to follow our orders merely because we said so.”

Meanwhile, Bush and Bill Clinton are becoming more chummy. Coincidence? I don’t know. Sure, a lot of it is just being part of the presidents club – current and past, hangin out, attending pope funerals and riding on air force one. The other part though – could it be a ‘Rove’ move? If so, it’s brilliant. Hang out, befriend and pal around with the (ex-president) spouse of the next democratic party nominee for president and create an ‘ackward situation’. I can hear the liberal press now…

“Senator Clinton, you’re out on the stump every day criticizing the republicans, calling them ‘spawn of Satan’, etc., yet your husband…well, right now he’s out bowling with Don Rumsfeld, and last night he was playing Hearts with the president, Condi Rice and Justice Scalia. In fact, White House sources say that the three of them would take breaks between hands and have a belching contest. The source, who apparently drifted off to sleep at approximately 2:15 AM, remembers that Secretary Rice was winning both games. What do you make of that?” 

OK, maybe it’s a pipe dream.
