LOCKING UP THE ANTI-AMERICAN VOTE:

Hillary for Prez Says Ousted German Chancellor (AP, Feb 11, 2006)

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia — Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, a fierce critic of the Bush administration, said Saturday that he's pulling for U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to win the White House.

"I'd be very pleased if Hillary Clinton would become the next American president," Schroeder said to applause from a largely Saudi audience at the Jeddah Economic Forum, which opened here Saturday. "But don't quote me too loud. I hope I'm not harming her by saying that."


...to Sa'udis no less.

Wow! Schroeder and the Saudis becoming Third Wayers. Who'd a thunk it?

All she needs now to lock up the election now is Chirac's endorsement.

And Hugo's, and Evo's, and of course Hamas, and lil' Kim's, and the opthamologist's, and the Guardian Council's, and Hu Jintao's, and Mugabe's. Right.

John Kerry tried for the foreign boost in 2004. Outside of Boston and Manhattan and San Francisco, it probably didn't help him.

Hillary probably doesn't want any of their support, but the fact that she will have it means something, now doesn't it?

It would have been even more fun if someone had followed up and asked Schroder what he had against John McCain and Rudy Giuliani.

Somewhere in his secret cavern, deep under Washington D.C., Karl Rove cackles insanely.

Losers of the World Unite! Hillary fits in well with this Confederacy of Dunces.

Ya gotta know Bush is doing something right.
