The latest Dick Morris column
describes disgusting moves by Republicans who claim to be "conservatives" and who ought to know better -- fawning all over Hillary Clinton, of all people:
"The most recent Fox News poll shows Hillary Clinton has reached an all-time height in popularity with a favorable-unfavorable rating of 52-39...[H]er growth in popularity has been stimulated and animated by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.), Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) and the other Republican stalwarts who have fallen all over themselves to appear in public with Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.), hyping and ratifying her positions on terrorism, national defense, sex on television and medical-record privacy.
Her popularity is also getting a boost from the arranged marriage between former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton — a nuptial orchestrated by current President George W. Bush so he could use Clinton’s visibility to improve the public impression of his response to the tsunami disaster. All those card-carrying Republicans are using Bill or Hillary to help their own careers by moving their images to the center, in the case of Newt, or to center stage, in the case of Santorum and Frist."
This is further proof, if any were needed, that the phony Republican Party leadership cares nothing at all about conservative principles, or about the religious conservative base.
