    UGLY, you are so funny. I nearly fell on the floor laughing my head off. How original! You definitely have a future in the comedy biz. My friend, that was most impressive.
    I wasnt even trying so dont give me too much credit.

    I read your comments. I didn't see the video. My question remains: whether a male candidate would be accused of having a "tantrum".

    And could somebody please tell her enough of the yellow outfits already. It's like some handler told her that yellow makes her sunny, but those yellow suits and the banana yellow hoodie just scream "Somebody told me to do this so I did". I want a president who thinks for herself or himself. Look in the mirror, say "no - yellow doesn't look so great on me" and tell them to take a hike!

    Reference to the Jacoby book again: she says that JFK was famous for refusing to wear baseball caps, or any caps, like his crew wanted him to wear for the sake of showing he was "one of the guys". He didn't hide his intellectuality. Perhaps Clinton should do the same thing. Be herself.

    And, does the color yellow flatter anyone?

    In that line of thought - I'm really hoping not to see Obama in a hunting jacket. John Kerry looked so out of place in that jacket he wore, like THAT would make him a regular guy.

    I thought it was funny that Kerry was always photographed tossing a football around during the campaign. I'm wondering if he's thrown a football since then?

    Her just being herself and letting her natural personality shine through is something I saw referenced back when she won New Hampshire. What some in the article talked about was that she often seems too packaged, too manufactured and as a result doesn't connect with the voters, even when she's saying things they want to hear. Then she cried and people liked seeing her relax that tough exterior. Many people I talk to have a hard time with her because it often seems that everything she does is planned and measured and part of a strategy. Which in turn makes her seem fake. The result is that they don't trust her to actually do any of the stuff she says she's going to do. Because they're not sure if she actually means it, or is just saying it because she and her team think that that's what we want to hear. Even both rants she went on this weekend seem staged and measured. Like she's trying something different to see if the voters respond. I don't think for a second that it was spur of the moment to liken Obama's mailings to something Rove would do.

    Then again, I don't think the Clintons are innocent with the whisper campaign about Obama being muslim. It's also not surprising that the Clinton campaign posted pics of Obama in traditional garb in Africa over the weekend to try to scare voters who believe or have heard the "whispers".

    What do you predict will happen in Ohio? What's the word on the street there?

    My friend, I can only speak for me. As I have said, I don't care what the gender is, I would use the same word, much as I would use the word hysterical if need be. George W has thrown several tantrums in my opinion. He has even bordered on trying to cause hysteria, while not being hysterical per se. If I was you, I would be less concerned with semantics and more concerned with "actuality" (new word created by TruTV).

    The fact that you have not seen the video, but let an article inform you is troublesome. In this day and age, video availablity sure trumps the written word.
