Hillary: The JFK of 2008?

When you think “Hillary Clinton,” you’re immediately reminded of JFK, aren’t you? Hillary wants that to be the case:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton invoked the campaign of the nation’s lone Catholic president, John Kennedy, last night as she talked about her challenge in becoming the first female commander-in-chief.

“He was smart, he was dynamic, he was inspiring and he was Catholic. A lot of people back then [1960] said, ‘America will never elect a Catholic as president,'” the White House hopeful told the New Hampshire Democrats’ 100 Club fund-raiser here.

“But those who gathered here almost a half century ago knew better,” she said. “They believed America was bigger than that and Americans would give Sen. John F. Kennedy a fair shake, and the rest, as they say, is history.”

Hillary comparing herself to JFK means that either she’s lost her mind, or this is her way of admitting that she was sexually attracted to Marilyn Monroe.

I haven’t heard audio of this speech, but I’m guessing she scrapped the fake southern drawl in favor of a Bahston accent.

I’ll hand this to Hillary. She’s setting herself up nicely. If you don’t vote for her, it’ll be because you hate Catholics, southerners, women, or all the above — and if you don’t vote for her because you don’t like her husband, it’ll be because you hate black people.
