  1. hehe, I’ve been watching this,it’s on in the background on my computer, so tuning in ever so often, and so far I have seen she has gotten 3 standing ovations, this is going rather well, and she received a powerful energetic introduction. πŸ™‚

  2. Well, just finished watching Hillary at the LiUNA, and she was great.
    I wasn’t actively watching until after the first 20 minutes, busy doing some stuff and also the connection wasn’t so great, I heard the sound but picture stopped at times.

    But from what I could count she received at LEAST 9 standing ovations!!!
    And a nice twist at the end there when she did her routine or asking questions like: Are you ready for change? are you ready for health care etc… She got to the Q. are we ready for a woman President? The crowd started cheering and she said well I think we’re ready for THIS one!!
    I loved it, she getting bold and confident, it suits her. It will be interesting to see the reaction John Edwards will get, he is up next.

  3. I know it is health care week, but I could not help noticing the following article re. Hsu which points out to date at least no actual crime has been found. Specifically, there has been no showing that the people who donated money were reimbursed for doing so. Furthermore, there has been no showing of a quid pro quo in terms of votes. The only thing that has been established is that he was a fugitive from justice, had unhappy investors and was a political groupie, which is not a campaign violation. See for yourself: reimburse http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeralyn-merritt/norman-hsu-wheres-the-c_b_64582.htmld

  4. Hillary’s helath plan put’s Obama’s to shame. Some progressive. And, unlike Edwards plan, her’s cuts through the bs, no reinventing the wheel.

  5. They are cheering at dkos over Edwards’ new pander: cut off congressional health insurance if UHC not in the works by 2009. Pathetic.

  6. I know Edwards is desperate for a headline, but the idea of having universal heath care “in place” by “mid-2009” seems unrealistic in terms of timetable, and imposing a threat to cut off health care for Congress if this is not done seems like showboating. He is a novice on the issue. If Hillary said it could be done, I would believe it.

  7. Hey y’all I missed it. I had to listen to the song “workin’ man” over and over, couldn’t get the live feed. But it sounds like it was just great! I loved hearin’ about all those standin’ ovations. Our girl keeps gettin’ better and better. Sounds like she’s got a great plan! Yeehaa once again! mollyj

  8. That’s a lame attempt by Edwards to steal the headlines, he hereby shows he has no respect for Hillary or her work in the past for UHC.

    If he thinks he can win points by announcing this TODAY, I think he can find it all backfire, he comes across looking more childish then like a leader.
    He had any opportunity to lay forth this suggestion, why today?
    Because he is trying to sabotage Hillary, rather than joining forces to get UHC passed.

    Bastard, sorry, but he has always come across as a stuck up rich white man in many ways to me, watch him when he is not speaking but while Hillary is peaking at the yearlykos convention, hes facial expression says it all. ugh, (don’t mean to offend anyone who has Edwards as a second choice or anything, just my opinion)

  9. Chicago Tribune already reports on the Laborers International Union:


    “New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton touted herself Monday as a longtime supporter of the labor movement, while criticizing the Bush administration for policies she said create a “government of the few, by the few and for the few.”

    “There will be no invisible Americans when I am president,” Clinton told a roaring crowd of about 1,000 members of the Laborers’ International Union of North America during a meeting in Chicago.

    Clinton, the first of three Democratic presidential contenders slated to speak to the the union Monday, received more than a half-dozen standing ovations during her nearly 30-minute speech. She also hinted about the massive health care plan she was slated to unveil at a campaign stop in Iowa later Monday.”

  10. “…received more than a half-dozen standing ovations during her nearly 30-minute speech.” What? Closer to a dozen then half a dozen…accurate reporting at it’s best. Little details like that annoys me.

  11. Go Hillary! Edwards does look like a brat – and Elizabeth is starting to get on my nerves too. Kooks are eating up his last bit of rhetoric…what does Edwards know about health care anyway? He was on the Health Care forum – and Hillary blew both he and Obama to bits. No comparison. Now Kooks say Hillary copied his plan….**&&^^%%

  12. Hillary so owns this issue. No wonder she saved it for the fall portion of her campaign. She totally drew the others in with there “she doesn’t have a plan”/”seh’s status quo” meme. And, now she strikes back. Ofcourse, she was going to transform health care. It’s her expertise. Now these foolish boys are going to be stuck debating the expert. Bwahahahahaha.
