I'm gonna have to AMEN that, 150%, Sunnubian!!!
Hillary would have KNOWN exactly who she was dealing with ... and would have had her "battle plan" in place on the DAY she first sat in that Oval Office chair as the "Commander-in-Chief"!!
She'd been "bumping heads" with those people for DECADES already!!! And would have known who to go through, who to go around and who to simply RUN OVER and leave lying in the street as "road kill"!!!
There's no way she would have WASTED any amount of time trying to play "patty-cake" with the "mean kids" .... knowing that it was an exercise in futility ... and that you cannot 'reason' with the "unreasonable'!! And I wouldn't be surprised if her 'arm-twisting' methods weren't more forceful (and diabolical) than her husband's (after all, she DID make him who he was!!) ... and whatever she needed to do to sway those "Blue Dog Democrats" into submission on her health care bill - especially since they had a hand in killing the proposal she made while First Lady and head of a commission to tackle that during her husband's presidency ... she would have done!!! And probably enjoyed it immensely!
And, although it's extremely sad to say .... the reality is that she was the more support of and didn't have the tendency to throw Black people 'under the bus' as easily nor with the frequency that President Obama did during that campaign.
I think it's VERY telling, though ... that someone (Cheney) who has openly hated her (and her husband) over the years would consider her "easier to deal with" than someone as conciliatory and "willing to bend over backwards" for the sake of 'compromise' as President Obama!!!
I mean .... that just has "racist" ("I don't like (nor respect) a Black person trying to be in charge and tell people what to do") written all over it!! He said HORRIBLE things about Hillary during the campaign. And now he'd "prefer" her to Obama and considers her highly "competent"??
Yeah. When pigs fly, maybe.
