Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will barnstorm three cities tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 30, to hold press events promoting Hillary Clinton’s economic stimulus package. They’re bound for Oakland’s Merritt College in the morning, Sacramento’s Quinn Cottages at midday and Clinton’s East Los Angeles campaign headquarters in the late afternoon, talking on themes including the foreclosure crisis and the needs of working families.

    Oakland, SF Mayors hit the road for Hilary. My question is at who’s expense? Dellums & Newsom, is this an example of ” Who’ going to Scratch my Back” Something to think about?

    Obama is the better choice for both cities

    Clinton accused of 1978 hotel rape

    By Martin Kettle in Washington
    Saturday February 20, 1999

    Just a week after his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial, Bill Clinton faces a fresh scandal about his past sexual conduct after a former campaign worker alleged that he raped her 21 years ago.

    Juanita Broaddrick, who now runs a nursing-home business in Arkansas, told the Wall Street Journal that Mr Clinton raped her in the Camelot Hotel in Little Rock in 1978, when he was the state attorney-general.

    The newspaper reports that Mr Clinton persuaded Mrs Broaddrick to have coffee with him in her hotel room during a conference of nursing home administrators in 1978. She alleges that he then forced her on to the bed, where he held her down, bit her lips and raped her.

    Hillary’s humanity

    Is fraudulent at best this is truly a self serving bureaucrat that only thinks of herself…. Many of her followers think she is the road to the future.

    I fail to see this “path” she speaks of America going. Yet there are those words “I am going to take that money from big oil profits”.

    Wait a second isn’t nearly all 401K plans and other companies retirement money is invested in energy.

    Now I can see why her supporters had they hands in the air like a stripper. Just like Pacman Jones Hillary just wants to make it rain only “with our money”.

    Yea, that’s the impression I have as well. I’ll vote for Obama. He hasn’t resorted to distorting the stands of other candidates to mislead voters and win votes. See factcheck.org. It’s a great site that puts the truth meter to ALL candidates. Check out the archives on factcheck.org back in November and December 2007. I helps me wade through all the political accusations without being biased so that I can make a more informed decision.

    I posted this toward another Hillary supporter……

    Do you want to believe in this ill dressed charlatan politician.

    I want you to ponder this for a few days…

    1)She didn’t cry at the first ceremony for the World Trade Center. when everyone else did, she looked down at the ground.

    2)She didn’t cry when she went past the dead Marines caskets from Iraq when the families did. She shook hands and showed no empathy at all.

    3)She didn’t even show ANY emotion publicly when her husband was caught in his Presidential adultery life style. Not even toward the black dress.

    And now you want me to believe she was asked a question when she was the president of her college debate team, and now she crying.

    Am sorry either you are not a woman or you still asleep at the wheel. She has fooled millions so far including you.
