Hillary Clinton Belongs to the World

Hillary Clinton: thunder in the Senate chamber, lightning on the stump. The closer we get to her, the more she makes us see, to paraphrase Roberta Flack. Yet, as with any star that sets the firmament ablaze, get too close and you might get burned. So it was with one sad little man from Vermont. Chris Stewart, a speechwriter for Republican House candidate Martha Rainville, resigned yesterday after he was discovered to be stealing material from Hillary's speeches. The offenses were rooted out by the blog Reason and Brimstone.

Rainville's Website is no longer up, but Reason and Brimstone quotes the goods:

Martha Rainville: "Briefly, I strongly believe that our present system of energy is weakening our national security, hurting our pocketbooks and threatening our children's future."

Hillary Clinton: "Our present system of energy is weakening our national security, hurting our pocketbooks, violating our common values and threatening our children's future. "

Hillary claims she's been making serious inroads with Republicans in and out of New York. She's more right than she thought.
