Hillary as Mark Antony

Is it my imagination or were there overtones of 'For Brutus is an honourable man' about Hillary's concession speech?

  1. I did not read Hillary’s concession speech, so I cannot comment.

    But I do think she would have made a viable president. It is Bill’s return as Queen Consort I was concerned about. When he seemed effortlessly perfect, I had not doubt that he was going to be a moral liability. I said so at the time of his election and, to my knowledge, was the only one to do so (copyright intact).

    If Hillary is Mark Anthony, Bill was cast in the mould of a Catalina. On balance, his personality must rank amongst the vilest of the age. And whereas Obama is very generation-specific in terms of his appeal, Bill’s return to the White House would have been like a criminal returning to the scene of his crime.

    Good riddance, I say, the pair of them...

  2. I think you're right. A few too many references to "Senator" Obama (who he?), and then recalling how she'd worked with him in the Senate for as long as four years. And, of course, she is only "suspending" her campaign as well as insisting on control of any donations that will now go to Obama but which would otherwise have gone to her.

    If Obama makes it to the White House - and I have doubts considering the strictly domestic agenda of the voters who live in the USA, not in Europe - it looks as if it will be with Clinton fangs firmly embedded in his ankle. He may be better off giving them the push right now.

  3. She would have money issues had she used concession or any form of words that amounted to that. And she might have hope that between now and August, the Republicans shake something loose.

  4. As you have made quite clear that you can't abide her or anything she says or does, I'm tempted to say it is your imagination, but it wasn't. As the Mark Antony features of it followed a rather standard format of such pre-convention concession speeches, I'm not sure why it is particularly remarkable, though.

  8. Children and teenagers who face the greatest risk of nutritional deficiencies tend to use vitamin and mineral supplements the least, researchers reported Monday.Among 10,828 US children ages 2 to 17 years old who participated in the 1999 to 2004 United States National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, roughly 34 percent had used vitamin and mineral supplements in the past month."We hypothesized," Dr. Ulfat Shaikh told Reuters Health, "that children who had poor diets (low vegetable intake, low milk intake, high fat intake, low fiber intake), world of warcraft goldwow power levelcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingbuy wow goldEverQuest 2 goldeq2 platfaced food insecurity, had less physical activity and poor access to health care, would use such supplements more.""What we found was for the most part the opposite of what we expected,"cheap ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy gilMaple Story Mesosmaple story accountmaplestory MesosLOTRO Goldlord of the rings goldLOTR Golddofus kamaskamas dofus said Shaikh from University of California Davis School of Medicine, Sacramento."Other than children who were underweight (we did expect these children to use more vitamin and mineral supplements and found this to be true from the data), runescape goldrunescape powerlevelingrunescape moneyArchLord goldarchlord powerlevelingbuy ArchLord goldflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyWarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldchildren who used vitamin and mineral supplements were for the most part healthier, had more nutritious diets, greater physical activity, lower sedentary activity, lower obesity, lower food insecurity and better health care access,"

  9. Yim's group looked for a link between placental corticotropin-releasing hormone (pCRH) and postpartum depression. The researchers took blood samples from 100 pregnant women at various stages during their pregnancy and tested for levels of pCRH.They also assessed the women for signs of depression during pregnancy and about eight weeks, on average, after delivery.In all, 16 women developed postpartum depression. world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platIn each case, the women had had high levels of pCRH at 25 weeks into their pregnancies, the study found.final fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy xi gilmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosmaplestory mesoThe blood test, which was found to have a high degree of both specificity and sensitivity, could identify about 75 percent of women who would develop postpartum depression, Yim's team found. lotro goldlotr goldlord of the ring goldrunescape goldrunescape moneyrunescape itemsThe test misclassified about 25 percent of the women.When the blood test was combined with assessing symptoms of depression during pregnancy, Yim noted, it was even more predictive of postpartum depression.dofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldCheap warhammer goldflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyIf the findings can be replicated, then testing the level of this hormone might become standard care, Yim said."eve iskeve online iskarchlord goldbuy archlord goldPostpartum depression affects so many women that it would be great to have something that would help to identify being at risk early on, and perhaps develop strategies to prevent it," she said.
