HER ROYAL C
By Dick Morris
Hillary's outspokenness on international issues is more than just the routine of a largely domestically-oriented senator preparing to run for president, burnishing her resume on overseas issues. It is the studied implementation of a playbook that dates back to the '90s when she and I wrote it together.
[T]he Hillary playbook became: Use the stereotype.
Sometimes, she tried to exploit the positive aspects of the stereotype as when she focused first on health care and then on education and children's issues. Now she seeks to overcome the negative part of the stereotype by posing as a hawk on foreign policy.
One problem is that Hillary is not likely sincere in her hawkish views.
The other problem is that Hillary really doesn't know much about foreign policy.
A WomanTrend poll last month found 25 percent of women said they'd definitely vote for her. But 29 percent wouldn't no matter whom her opponent turns out to be. "A lot of these blue-collar women don't respect her for staying with her husband," a WomanTrend pollster said. "If you can't stand up to a cheating husband who embarrassed you in front of the whole world, how are you going to stand up to Osama Bin Laden?"
Hillary Hair Care? (hee hee hee)
