Hillary Rodham Clinton

Found at Ann Althouse’s blog-

Hillary Clinton’s conservatism, if it is correct to characterize her as such, is more that of a Warren Harding than a Calvin Coolidge. That is to say, she possesses the cultivated conservatism of the palm-greaser, the chiseler, the positioner and maker of small deals. She is the exemplar of the new mandarin class, a dealer in leverage and self-dealing. She will not again break her back on grandiose utopia-building foolishness like the first, failed attempt at government takeover of what remained of the private healthcare market. For one thing, another clutch of morons broke the ice on that, and the lucrative patchwork of recovery, repair, and reform that this catastrophe will spawn like maggots from a table heaped with entrails – that lifetime of paydays stretches in front of her client-base like the prospect of the promised land before the heirs of Moses.

The commentariat at Ann’s place is the best ever- this quote is downright legendary. Oh, the burn…
