    Shame on all the pundits (Howie Carr & Rush Limbaugh most noticeably) who claimed she was faking her concussion to duck responsibility for the Benghazi situation. May she have a speedy and full recovery!

      I thought the very same thing. But what do you expect from such low lifes as those.

        what do you expect from any of them? As if the republicans are the only ones that lie. The Dems and Repub’s both lie on a daily basis. Whatever it takes to keep the power. Maybe she has a blood clot. Put her in a wheelchair with her feet up. give her Heparin shots every 8 hours, and have her sit in front of whatever panel has to ask the questions.

          Get over yourself. Those doctors at Columbia Presbrytarian Hospital are not making this up. Talk about paranoia. That poster, porteagle, was merely saying that he was wrong about her faking any concussion and resulting medical issues. That is all he was saying.

            I read fairly well and porteagle’s new belief that a lying piece of progressive crap is telling the truth is heart warming.

    I have a personal interest in this. I had a blood clot in my leg about two years ago. I will be checking on the level of care she receives compared with me. Realizing that every case is not the same there is still a comparison that can be made. Oh yes, I have Medicare.

    • Anonymous

      So does she.

      • Anonymous

        She has Medicare, private medical insurance, and oodles and oodles of cash to boot to ensure she gets the best health care possible on earth, the type of health care most human beings can only dream of having in a similar situation. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame Hillary for wanting the best care possible that money can provide. But she supports a health care system (Obamacare) that authorizes the government to put limits on the amount and quality of health care a person could receive. Of course she and her relatives would not to be subject to those limits given the availability of financial resources at her disposal.

            My comment has nothing to do with George Bush. It has to do with Hillary Clinton, one of the authors of “Obamacare”, who will continue to get all the health care she desires while most of us with serious medical conditions requiring expensive health care will undoubtedly face limits imposed by the government for financial reasons.

    when GHW Bush’ critical condition was reported,the lefties on these pages had nothing but terrible things to say about him, So i guess that makes Sec.

Considering all the people who died under mysterious circumstances or were outright murdered that were in or near her and Pres. Clintons sphere of influence,I would hope she answers questions sooner rather than later,before the blood clot becomes a stroke.

    It is too bad that she can not be trusted, but with her history she can not be taken at face value.

    If She has actually fallen, suffered a concussion, developed a blood clot and is hospitalized; I wish her a fast recovery.

    If as could also be true this is all a lie to avoid testifing on the Bengazi fiasco and coverup, I want to see her held in contempt of Congress and punished to the fullest extent of the law and stripped of any benefit of her “service”.

        hmmmm…..like maybe, Feingold?

        • Why yes, now that you say it, that’s a fantastic idea string. ;)

          Terrific principles, experience, an impressive and deep resume with credentials that appeal to a wide spectrum.

          A proven champion of civil liberties, constitutional rights, common sense foreign policies (with a voting record to back it up), consistent about campaign finance reform (and fighting against corporate corruption), a fiscal conservative, anti-NAFTA, a moderate stance on gun rights and a proven record of bi-partisanship. Plus, charisma and a terrific sense of humor don’t hurt either.

          Feingold is the complete package without the baggage and polarization that Mrs. Clinton would bring to her nomination. I do hope he decides to enter the running and that Dems will nominate him if he does.

          • Anonymous

            If he runs, will you switch sides?

          • Heh…I have no side really. I am of the disenfranchised. I’m registered R because one has to be to participate in party caucuses (which I did twice for Paul), though am an actual, (not pretend) RINO. Oddly enough, I’m still of the 2% of most politically active Republicans in the state. Sad isn’t it?

            What are your thoughts on switching to a primary? I personally like the idea, not only so I can re-register an independent but because a binding state vote would be great as well. The GOP caucus (last) year was such a joke. I really hate the primary season. It should all be done on the same day across the country in my opinion.

            In any case, I am fully prepared to switch to D if there is a worthy candidate worth caucusing for in 2016, or staying put as R if they have a better candidate (however unlikely.)

            Happy New Year!

          • Anonymous

            Some time back I recall you referring to yourself as a “social liberal.” It wasn’t too hard to identify your affiliation – a Democrat would not have made that distinction.

            Caucus vs. primary? I agree that a primary is more straight forward – and binding as you point out. But from a personal point of view, I REALLY enjoy the Democratic caucus. Last election was pretty cut and dried because there was only one candidate – Obama.

            But consider 2008. In our caucus there were 50 or so Democrats sharing coffee and pastries having a 2 hour conversation on who might be the best candidate. I live down east, so most of these people I know. Although there was plenty of disagreement, it was still a very civil, intelligent meeting. I really enjoy being with people who are engaged in the process, and I feel like I also am better served by participating directly in the discussions that take place in the caucus room. I think it’s truly informative.

            So I suppose from personal experience, I’d like to continue with the caucus format. I am fully aware that I would most likely feel differently if I had to endure what Republicans have been going through in their caucuses. But You might also feel differently if you could experience a Democratic caucus similar to the one in my hometown.

            Let me know when you’re ready to make the switch, as I am ready to form the first draft Feingold campaign in Maine.

            And thank you. Happy New Year to you too.

          • Socially liberal yes, close to libertarian.

            My biggest objection to the primary season is the schedule. Candidates eliminated by statistically irrelevant state votes and lack of funding (which doesn’t always correlate with quality of candidate) is really un-fair and un-democratic. As you suggest, having the vote in many cases, practically decided by the time Maine comes around is just lame. And we’re usually in the middle to front of the pack! Those towards the end of the schedule have virtually no choice at all! And this, contrary to the simple American voter view, is where the real choice is made – not the general election.

            The Androscoggin GOP caucus, which I attended ran fine – and people for the most part were polite and respectful. It was what Webster and his sycophants did after caucus, and at the convention that tarnished the whole affair. :

          • Anonymous

            Yes, I agree 100% on your statements concerning the primaries.
            The reason we’re stuck with the same baggage term after term is because of a ridiculous primary season.

            I completely favor same day primaries. And while we’re at it, let’s make that day a holiday ( and the general election as well ). It’s very frustrating to have to vote for Michaud ( for instance ) year after year, but it’s nearly impossible to replace him via the primary system. As you say, it is the primary where the really important changes can be made.

            Most depressingly, I don’t believe any meaningful changes can take place without campaign finance reform, and that will be most difficult to accomplish because, of course, we keep sending the same misfits back, and THEY have too much invested in the status quo.

            Quite a vicious circle.

            What we need is uncompromising leadership but, – with few exceptions – I don’t see it out there.

    Accustomed to years of duplicity, and inured to the sound of her own slow and painful demise, this frumpy dowager has at length become a polyp upon Obama’s buttock.

    So, Mrs Clinton has a blood clot and is being treated with anticoagulants at New-York Presbyterian Hospita according to the State Department’s Philippe Reines? That’s too bad. It is also very interesting as some in the Democratic regime are trying to link it to the mysterious phantom “concussion” of several days ago. Strange that we get such details now that she is in the hospital whereas when she has the alleged “concussion” there was no information at all. We are to believe that The Secretary of State had the flu, fell, hit her head giving her a “concussion”, and was not immediately transported by ambulance to a hospital, examined in detail, had a CT of her brain, and was not held at least one night for observation? Get real! A connection between her “concussion” and a blood clot, a clot the location of which is apparently a state secret. What do the docs say?
    “I think it’s very unlikely this is a blood clot on top of the brain or around the brain specifically, because you just don’t treat blood clots on the brain that way,” Gupta said. “That would worsen the bleeding.”
    Dr. Roshini Raj, a physician at New York University Medical Center and a contributor to the TODAY show, says it’s not at all clear where Clinton’s blood clot is – which is important for understanding how serious her medical condition is.
    “It’s a little murky,” Raj told TODAY. It is uncommon for a concussion alone to cause a blood clot. More likely is a blood clot elsewhere from lying in bed to recover from a concussion, Raj said.
    Lying in bed or lying in hiding?
