Republicans find unifying candidate: Clinton

with 3 comments

An intriguing post by journalist Ron Elving at NPR, begins so:

clipped from, October 2, 2007 Republicans have found the unifying issue they need to rally their party and lift their election chances in 2008 — and it is an issue with a human face. The face belongs to Hillary Clinton, and the issue is the prospect of her becoming president.

In the absence of a unifying candidate (quite the opposite to the usual R vs. D presidential runup), Hillary might supply the glue that prevents a third-party split. Click the NPR link.

  1. Hello, Monte. First time here. Interesting site.

    I cringe to think of Hillary Clinton as our President.

    I’m sincerely praying that God will raise up another candidate…someone who loves God and who loves America.

    Monte Says: Thanks, Shirley, and welcome!
    I assume Hillary loves both, but don’t know for sure. Like you, though, I’d prefer a different candidate. She has too many connections to rich and powerful people for my comfort. I don’t think wealth and power are influences that most people manage well; they work to de-democratize democracy, and influence one to seek them more and more, losing track of the poor and powerless that Jesus pursued so consistently. Guess my desire would be for a candidate who loves God enough that his or her love for country doesn’t make him/her unlike Jesus.

  2. Possibly. I know I’d vote Dubya in for a 3rd term rather than let Billary into office. Hell, I’d vote for Ahmadinejad before Clinton, at least he’s honestly evil.

    Monte Says: Thanks, J. I think I might just stay home if Hillary were the candidate, and figure we had more years of hard lessons to learn before much meaningful good could be accomplished. She is far too connected to business and lobbyists for my taste. Now Ahmadinejad – he’s likely to soon fade from the scene in Iran (being a lame duck) – he’ll be looking for a new career. And it took my English-language brain so long to learn to spell an Iranian name. Maybe the skill will transfer.

  3. I grant that we Republicans are not united for a particular candidate right now. We don’t have to be–the election is still a year away. The Democrats are moving toward unity on Hillary, but Obama and Edwards are still in the running, no?

    This Republican is not anti-Hillary above all else. I would actually vote for a third-party or independent pro-life candidate, even if it means that Clinton would become the president.

    (See my blog post today on this subject, if you are so inclined.)

    Monte Says: Thanks for your comment, RG – and I did visit your blog and enjoyed it very much.
