Even though this is an urban legend:
I still think it describes Hillary very well, and it’s funny. With all the junk she and Sen. Schumer are trying to pull in the new liberal controlled Congress it almost makes me ashamed to admit I once lived in New York. I guess the saving grace is that when she ran the first time in 2000 I voted for Republican Rick Lazio, mostly because I actually wanted a NEW YORKER to represent me in the Senate, not an ARKANSAN who moved out of state to advance her political career.
(Has she divorced Bill yet? That might improve her chances of winning in ’08.)
The story goes that Senator Hillary Clinton was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nations two weeks ago in upper New York State . She spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living, should she one day become the first female President.
She referred to her career as a New York Senator, how she had signed “yes” for every Indian issue that came to her desk for approval.. Although the Senator was vague on the details of her plan, she seemed most enthusiastic about her future ideas for helping her “red sisters and brothers”.
At the conclusion of her speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian name – Walking Eagle.
The proud Senator then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds. A news reporter later inquired of the group of chiefs how they had come to select the new name given to the Senator.
They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of crap it can no longer fly.
May God continue to bless America
I’m a TEXAN now! And a card carrying Republican! (Seriously, I have a membership card for the Republican Party of Texas and the Republican National Committee. I’m a precinct chair — an entry level politician. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precinct_captain)
