HRC's true colors

Last week I wrote how my nascent nostalgia for Bill Clinton was cut short in the wake of the recent publicity surrounding his book. It proved a worthwhile reminder of everything I didn't like about the man.

I have just undergone a similar epiphany regarding his wife. As a resident of New York for these past four years, I'd been forced to grudgingly concede that Ms Clinton has executed the duties of her office in a fairly competent, moderate way. Then, in an unguarded moment, she said this:

Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

Her leftist core may be buried, but it's not dead. I won't forget that again.
