Molly Ivans No Fan of Hillary Clinton

It's quite entertaining watching one liberal Democrat after another line up to take shots at the likely 2008 Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY). The latest is none other than Molly Ivans. She wants it to be known that she thinks Hillary is just another "D.C. Democrat" and much worse:

Mah fellow progressives, now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the party. I don’t know about you, but I have had it with the D.C. Democrats, had it with the DLC Democrats, had it with every calculating, equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting son of a bitch up there, and that includes Hillary Rodham Clinton.

I will not be supporting Senator Clinton because: a) she has no clear stand on the war and b) Terri Schiavo and flag-burning are not issues where you reach out to the other side and try to split the difference. You want to talk about lowering abortion rates through cooperation on sex education and contraception, fine, but don’t jack with stuff that is pure rightwing firewater.

So who does Molly think would make a good president? Her answer: "I can’t see a damn soul in D.C. except Russ Feingold who is even worth considering for President. The rest of them seem to me so poisonously in hock to this system of legalized bribery they can’t even see straight."

Knowing Hillary Clinton, she's probably jumping up and down with joy being attacked from the left by folks like Molly Ivans because it makes her appear to be a middle-of-the-roader who is more electable. Hell, she probably paid Molly to write the damn column.

She doesn't support gay marriage and she supports the Iraqi war. Her husband supported "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and DOMA. If she's not "middle of the road," she's a conservative Democrat. I think the best descriptor would be a DLC Democrat..much like Evan Bayh.
