1. In a recent speech she said, "I am the solution." This is, in fact, an example of plagiarism, as it is obviously a ripoff of Matt Farnsworth's catch-phrase.

2. Hillary used a ghostwriter to write It Takes A Village, and nowhere in the book did she credit the ghostwriter, Barbara Feinman. Furthermore, despite the fact that publisher Simon & Schuster announced that the book would be written almost entirely by Feinman, Hillary later denied using a ghostwriter as she was doing the book tour.

3. Hillary has even plagiarized Barack Obama, using the "fired up and ready to go" line. In another questionable example that might be more analogous to Obama's borrowed statements, Hillary also resorted to chanting, "Yes, we will!" Is that not extremely similar to "Yes, we can!" in anyone's book?

Get off your high horses, and stop the silly attacks. Politicians borrow phrases and excerpts. I don't fault Hillary for #1 and #3 on the list above--not even a bit. That's politics. But if either candidate should accuse the other of plagiarism, would it not be more Obama's right in light of the fact that Hillary plagiarized her book, yet Obama did not plagiarize his two books?

As an outsider to the Democratic party and not supporting either candidate, it is fun to watch the mudslingling back and forth. What I keep seeing over and over again, is Hillary will attack Obama for something, then it comes out that Hillary has done the samething if not to a greater degree. It always comes down to a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Democrats make me laugh. Republicans make me cry.

Well, we can agree on this: both parties suck.

I had really hoped for a bigger blowup of the system by Dr. Ron Paul. I really wish we weren't in a political system that is dominated by two consolidated parties, with no hope of a third- or fourth-party breakthroughs.

Excellent post. Sad that Hillary. She really has been knocked clearly off of her perch. Obama must lower himself in his campaign to deal with Hillary's utter desperation and nonsense. She is after all a woman without any substance, not an inspiring orator, and bad for this country.

So Hillary took her 3 am phone call ad from two different people.

Look at when this youtube video was posted for John McCain (January 6, 2008)

YouTube - Who do you want to answer the phone?

Walter Mondale ad (1984)

YouTube - BACK2BACK: Billary and Mondales' Red Phone Ads


YouTube - Clinton on Fear Vs Hope

Not that you were directing this to me, however... don't think we can agree... I and plenty think the dems suck more. Much more.

Well the opposite POV exists, too.

My point, smartguy, is that the fact that people may think one party sucks more than the other is hardly worth noting. Polarization is old news.

So you think the Democrats suck. Cool. Good for you.

The posters comment, as you conceded, was not meant for you in that case.
