Quote of the Day

"Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, and welcome aboard the maiden flight of Hil Force One. My name is Hillary and I am so pleased to have most of you on board. FAA regulations prohibit the use of any cell phones, Blackberries or wireless devices that may be used to transmit a negative story about me. In a few minutes, I am going to switch off the 'Fasten Your Seat Belt' sign. However, I've learned lately that things can get awfully bumpy when you least expect it—so you might want to keep those seat belts fastened. And in the event of an unexpected drop in poll numbers, this plane will be diverted to New Hampshire. If you look out from the right, you will see an America saddled with tax cuts for the wealthiest and a war without end. If you look out from the left, you will see an America with a strong middle class at home and a strong reputation in the world. Once we've reached cruising altitude, we'll be offering in-flight entertainment: my stump speech."—Hillary Clinton, welcoming the traveling press corps aboard her campaign plane today, by playing flight attendant on the plane's intercom as it taxied down the runway. Who says Hils doesn't have a sense of humor?

Jeralyn says, if you think Hillary "takes herself too seriously, think again."

This is precisely why I've always like Hillary as a person, irrespective of my opinion of her as a candidate.
