Hillary Clinton’s Birth Day

Update: From the comments:

My wife and I were 5 and six seats away from the Clintons. We were in seats 109 and 110 in row F and they were in row C. My wife gave Hillary a b-day card that read, “Best Birthday Ever”, and inside, “Best Year Ever!”, to which we added, “Best campaign ever…best inauguration EVER!”, and “here’s a little something for the campaign” as we put a dollar bill in the card as a little joke. I have a secret video of that and many wonderful moments during the evening. You should have seen Hillary, “Bopping” to the Wallflowers, or even better, “Boogieing” to “What’s so funny(’bout peace, love, and understanding”, which featured Elvis backed by the Wallflowers.

Elvis sang Happy Birthday, adding, Happy Birthday…Madame PRESIDENT”! to the crowd’s delight. We were so high that we couldn’t get to sleep!

Met Ron Howard, Ann Lewis, Charlie Rangel and the rest of the NY congressional delegation, who were all in attendance. Billy Crystal was Hil-arious, making fun of getting older, Bush and especially Rudy, who he said he believes will be the repubs nominee.

I’ll try to post more later, but let me tell you that it was a once in a lifetime experience that we will always treasure.

Happy Birthday you brave lady.

We celebrated yesterday and last night:

Led by crooner Elvis Costello, supporters of presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton rose to their feet and cheered on Thursday night, the eve of the 60th birthday of the Democrat who aims to become the first woman U.S. president.

Costello, who sang “Happy Birthday Mrs. President” and delivered raucous versions of hit songs including “Pump it Up,” was joined by actor-comedian Billy Crystal, former President Bill Clinton and several members of New York’s Congressional delegation.

Crystal, in a more serious moment during his introduction of the former president, told the fund-raiser’s audience at Manhattan’s Beacon Theater Hillary Clinton’s campaign was one of only three times he had become politically engaged — after the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and Bill Clinton’s victory in 1992.

Hillary’s real birthday gifts are her popularity and lead in the polls. Those are gifts she has earned the old fashioned way, hard work and dedication:

Memo to the Democratic presidential candidates: You can still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton, but you better act fast.

The former first lady looks more likely to win the nomination every day, showing strength in polling, fundraising and setting the campaign agenda.

Even right wing outlets have been forced to acknowledge Hillary’s strengths:

Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton is at the top of voters’ minds. More people are familiar with Clinton and her positions on the issues than any other candidate, she is the most mentioned when people are asked who they would want in the White House in the event of a national crisis and she is also the candidate seen as having the most passion and enthusiasm to be president.

The latest polls have Hillary leading in the race by over 30 points. In state after state, Hillary is in the lead with enormous gaps between her and the also rans.

This election is not over until the last vote is counted. But for now we celebrate that 60 years ago Hillary Clinton was born and has lived those 60 years to the fullest.

Happy Birthday Hillary and thank you for all you have done.

  2. The Realist,

    you should write a dairy on mydd, dailykos. All those nuts are complaining there’s no positive news, so here we go…

  3. Chris Matthews in an interview (right now) on MSNBC said that even if Hillary loses Iowa she probably will win. He said most people know all about her and they have made up their minds that they like her.

    Matthews also said he has never seen anyone get a 31 point lead especially against an opponent who has received so much glowing press.

    Who slipped Matthews truth serum?

  4. I think Mathews is manic or something… you never know what the guy’s going to say. Did you guys see Stephanie Miller call him a right wing tool on his show? He got all bent out of shape!

    Another topic: Has anyone heard about “Hillary UnCensored” – a “swiftboat”type doc on her…that can be found on google, and they’re showing at Harvard and Dartmouth?????

  5. Kitforhill, we have seen it. It’s really bad. Worse than the “Clinton Chronicles” video. It reminds us of that cult classic film documentary “Reefer Madness”.

  6. terrondt, the interview was with Norah on her show. We suspect he will go crazy on tonight’s show. The promo for the show just aired and Matthews is going to “examine the Clinton marriage”.

    If you watch, take some tranquilizers beforehand.

  7. Why would they be showing such garbage at Harvard and Dartmouth? Is it something new? I wonder if it’s the documentary the RW was trying to get money for earlier this year, the one that Dick Morris (barf!) was briefly involved with.

    Has her campaign denounced it? I never heard of it till kirforhill mentioned it.

  8. Matthews is the worst Clinton crotch-sniffer around. Most voters don’t give a flying fig about their marriage; they just want someone who’s a qualified, competent president.

  9. I think Matthews acts the way he does on “Hardball” strictly for ratings. He figures Clinton-bashing and gossipy stuff will attract viewers.

  10. Paula, I will have to be careful not to take a drink while reading your posts. “Crotch sniffer”….that’s freaking hysterical. And I agree he does what he does for ratings.

    Happy birthday, Hillary. I’ll make another donation today just in your honor.

  11. OkieAtty, Thank you, but I can’t take credit for crotch-sniffer, lol. People used it Democratic Underground, a place I used to frequent till they became too anti-Hillary for me.

  12. Walter Shapiro had a pathetic piece today at Salon that called into question the predictive power of the polls. I’ve decided some people question the polls because they can’t bear the thought their candidate won’t be the nominee. Other people question the polls because they can’t bear the thought they don’t have a race to cover.

    Happy birthday, Madame President!
