Though Bill Clinton did superficially embrace some Conservative ideas such as welfare reform and traditional marriage for the sake of expediency, those actions were never anything but diversionary tactics. Without exception, every judicial appointment, every executive order, and every international accord was designed to move the social order and political agenda as far to the Left as possible.
When the Clintons descended upon Washington D.C. in 1993, they did not do so as “moderates,” but as revolutionaries and national saviors. Along with their comical assurances to conduct the “most ethical presidential administration in history,” they promised to remake the nation, essentially by corrupting such institutions as its healthcare system into something resembling the overburdened Socialist utopias of Europe.
From the moment the election results were confirmed, and throughout their pre-inauguration gatherings (one of which appeared as a surrealistic combination of a coronation and a Berlin rally from the 1930’s), their message was ominous and unmistakable: The flower-child, love-bead, and Woodstock generation had finally come of age as was ready to transform the old order forever.
Though Clintonian propensities for short-term self-gratification often undermined the more grandiose schemes, it should never be forgotten that virtually every presumed standard of conduct, as well as many basic premises of the law, were systematically and deliberately violated in order to ultimately render them irrelevant. Furthermore, far from going on the defensive whenever such behavior came to light, the Clinton political machine actually used those incidents to promote its undeniably Leftist goals. The very brazenness with which the Clintons regularly flouted and mocked the law served as a weapon to challenge and intimidate their opponents. In the end they suffered virtually no punitive consequences for their actions.
Throughout the debacle of the Clinton years, Hillary often proved to be the driving force behind the calculated and unscrupulous political strategizing. She was invariably a key player in, if not the mastermind behind, each endeavor. In perhaps her only honest moment of the entire Clinton term, she once unequivocally stated “we are the President.” And this role she embraced, not as an overly enthusiastic First Lady, but rather as the true political opportunist, unfettered by such trivialities as soul or conscience.
On any given day, she could be counted upon to disseminate whatever deceit or accusation might be necessary to defuse the latest controversy. Or, in a pinch, she would suddenly revert back to the monotonously predictable “I don't recall.” Last week’s lies were never of any consequence when dealing with this week’s scandal. Certainly it can be no surprise that, as she closes in on the Presidency in 2008, lies from the past decade are, in her mind, a non-issue.
Nor has Hillary undergone any true reformation since leaving the White House. Securing a ten million dollar book deal after being elected to the Senate, she dismissed accusations of ethics breaches (the very kind that forced Newt Gingrich to return his sizeable advance) on the technicality that she hadn’t yet been sworn in, as if that detail negated the possibility of questionable influence. Moreover, the outright falsehoods contained in her book were so outlandish as to make Pete Rose look downright virtuous in comparison.
During the political debate of recent months, Howard Dean has been castigated as being extreme and dangerous on account of his Leftwing views. Certainly such charges are warranted. Dean’s guiding political philosophies, between bouts of religious awakening (from which he quickly recovers), are strictly ultra-Liberal in character. However, Hillary poses far more of a threat. For though she subscribes to those same extremist views, she also possesses sufficient political cunning to know when to cloak her radicalism behind a mask of “moderation,” with hopes of lulling her opposition into a false calm, after which she intends to unleash her Liberal fury, once again, on an unwary public.
