People, now, seem to think that the TV and newspaper companies tell the truth. Me? I don't believe anything, at all, that appears in the media. How
sad is that? Even old Auntie BEEB has been shown to be biased. The Times, once a bastion of truth, is in the hands of Murdoch. They all have their own
agendas. They mostly wanted us to vote Tory, in the last election, because the Tories would be better for them, not us.
Some can't see why we like Corbyn. Well, he's voted for everything, in the past, in ways that his conscience has directed him, even if that meant
voting against his party's "line". He's been honest. Even when he was nominated for the party leadership, he didn't actually want it. He was just
kinda making up the numbers. Nobody was more shocked then he was, when he won!
People who seek power are those that should never be allowed hold it.

|By the look of him and seeing him get so worked up, I don't reckon he'll last the distance. One way or another.

|She was already working before her hubby was in public life and wanted to continue in that, where's the problem. I don't think that statement in any
way demeans those who choose to stay home.

Yes, definitely more appealing than not wanting to bake cookies.

|My choice for the content of this post is 'the ghost of things once said come back to haunt'. And YES, I remember this like it was yesterday.
Verbatim transcript of the initial portion of this interview on a USA TV program called "Nightline": full transcript can be had by using "hillary
clinton baking cookies interview 1992".
I believe "VO" means 'voice over'.
Making Hillary Clinton An Issue
March 26, 1992
Correspondent: Jackie Judd
Anchor: Ted Koppel
TED KOPPEL (VO): Meet the new political wife. She has a career, she has opinions. A partner in every way.
GOV BILL CLINTON, (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: And my slogan might well be, "Buy one, get one free".
KOPPEL (VO): And now, she's become controversial.
HILLARY CLINTON: I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I
entered before my husband was in public life.
Me here: IMO anyone who believes that a lifestyle choice of staying home and baking cookies as a homemaker is beneath them is an elitist snob.
That's what her persona projects, i. e., she lacks the common touch AKA empathy. The USA does not need, or want, a president like that.
