Strong opinions, weakly held

Molly Ivins puts it simply

Molly Ivins tells it like it is:

I’d like to make it clear to the people who run the Democratic Party that I will not support Hillary Clinton for president.

Enough. Enough triangulation, calculation and equivocation. Enough clever straddling, enough not offending anyone. This is not a Dick Morris election. Sen. Clinton is apparently incapable of taking a clear stand on the war in Iraq, and that alone is enough to disqualify her. Her failure to speak out on Terri Schiavo, not to mention that gross pandering on flag-burning, are just contemptible little dodges.

I could not agree more emphatically. There are a lot of other names you could add to that list as well. As I have repeatedly said, I have no idea what a successful political strategy for the Democratic party would look like, and I’ll say again that I don’t care. I only know for sure what appeals to me and what doesn’t. What doesn’t appeal to me is more of the same.

  1. I’d kind of like to see Hillary out of politics, just to see a lot of right-wing pundits suddenly forced to find real jobs.
