Hillary Clinton is running in 2008 and for the past three years has been trying to moderate her image. Perception is important to Hillary and recently she spoke about the tragedy of abortion. (to appeal to evangelicals) She has also announced that she is a praying person. She can turn herself into a clone of Ann Coulter but it’s not going to work.

For eight years as first lady she vehemently defended abortion rights and then as senator from New York she voted for partial birth abortion.

Although moderating her positions might make Hillary Clinton seem less shrill we still remember William Safire’s comments about her. She is a congenital liar he said. Now she is repackaging herself as a convivial liar.

The British press reports breathlessly about her.
