Indeed, all very admirable and with terrific experience to be POTUS - for someone with a better personality. smile

What she actually said was "There was supposed to some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

There WAS sniper fire in the area at that time, but none directed at her. And she never claimed anybody was shooting at her. She was probably told before getting off the plane not to expose herself because there WERE still snipers even though hostilities had stopped.

I suspect there was a lot of "Al Gore claimed he invented the internet" like crap going around even though he never claimed any such thing.

I suspect President Hillary would have not put up with Mitch McConnell refusing to hold hearings on her Supreme Court pick. Obama was so busy being a dignified Black Statesman, that he wouldn't press the matter. I think a President Hillary would have just said: "Times up Mitch, you've had your 3 months. You chose not to participate so now Garland is on the Court." Just like any White male President would have done.

Or maybe even had the Justice Department bring Mitch up on charges for failing to do his job.

I just remember that when the rest of HillaryCare got shot down, she argued to keep S-CHIP and Newt and the boys relented on it and let it stay.

The actual guys who DID invent the internet are on record as saying that Al was a huge help and that they don't mind the Al Gore comments at all.

Al Gore and the Internet - by Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf

Quote:
No one person or even small group of persons exclusively "invented" the Internet. It is the result of many years of ongoing collaboration among people in government and the university community. But as the two people who designed the basic architecture and the core protocols that make the Internet work, we would like to acknowledge VP Gore's contributions as a Congressman, Senator and as Vice President.


Basically, two of the guys who actually DID help "invent the internet" are poised to slap a few folks and tell them to shut the Hell up and give Gore some thanks. Bow

"Franken for Painter was surely the swap that the corporate parties wanted. Ditch a mediocre wayward Senator like Franken for a serious “centrist” like Painter (aka liberalish imperialist ecocide-inducing corporate hack). Thus we are left with the two party split: the politically correct moralizing corporate suits like Painter on the one hand, the lawless corporate gangster rascals like Trump on the other hand"

Well said!

Gore was the main Congressional advocate when most others could not see the purpose of the internet. He cosponsored the bills that turned the Arpanet into the Internet and opened it up to other than a few big defense contractors and their University affiliates.

That is exactly what he claimed.
