Parker’s column on Hillary was great reading

Dear Editor,

Kathleen Parker’s June 11 commentary was great!

Reading about the Clinton’s denials was priceless. It shows the hypocrisy and the foibles on the road to power. Hillary’s ultimate faith is that she’s vindicated in the end by the equitability she can spread around in fulfilling our mission in this life.

The comparison to Diane Keaton’s role as a wife complicitous by denial in “The Godfather” is a terrible analogy. It implies deeds by President Bill Clinton of the same caliber as a two-bit Mafioso boss.

Hillary’s biggest problem, or anyone who supposedly has the general welfare of the people in mind (now this may be a good point of debate in Hillary’s case), is they have to stand alone and make decisions. Without vision or ideals, it’s tough. Look at many former Democrats who’ve folded and become milk-sucking Republicans. It’s natural.

Those left in the Democratic Party are dead wood with dumb ideas. Bill Clinton was an exception. The difference between the Bush White House and the Clinton White House is the form of hypocrisy.

We need another Eleanor Roosevelt. For what she lacked in looks, she made up for in character. Unfortunately, in Hillary’s case, we can’t have both.

The all-American boy that emulated FDR left a mixed track record and much sentiment. JFK. Hillary couldn’t do that, could she?
