'My Husband was Head of Surgery for 8 Years!'

As two surgeons are about to start operating on a patient, a Hillary Clinton look-alike barges in wearing surgical clothing and a stethoscope. After a humorous back and forth between the Clinton actress and the two surgeons, Clinton says, "I am ready to operate on day one. Now hand me the sharp pointy thing and the funny scissors."

It's a humorous response to the 3 AM phone call ads Senator Hillary Clinton is well known for.

Here's a hypothetical:

What if that "wife of a surgeon" happened to attend and graduate from medical school, earning her degree and attaining her PhD?

or...

What if that "wife of a president" happened to be involved with politics and public service for the past 35 years, being involved in the United States Senate, serving as first lady of the US (during which time she revolutionized the role, traveling to over 80+ countries, meeting with foreign leaders, working with democrats and republicans in congress to get bills passed, learning and witnessing personally on a daily basis how the white house functions and how to effectively get things done)...as well as championing the effort to create universal health care while standing up to the republican controlled congress...

now, let's compare that to the credentials of the other candidate...who has been a senator for only three years...who has not held a meeting over the progress in Afghanistan once in the past year in his committee...who has never once had a one-on-one conversation with foreign leader...who voted present hundreds of times as an Illinois senator to avoid the controversial decisions (which would ultimately aid him in his quest for the presidency)...

Please don't call Hillary inexperienced and then say you're supporting the most inexperienced candidate to ever run for the presidency. That would be an oxymoron if I ever heard one!

Actually I'd rather compare her to Robin Givens going for heavyweight championship vis-a-vis marriage to Mike Tyson!

Totally the same. What experience are we talking about? Enough hype about the word, stupid, and give me specifics. Taking trips to talk to children and take pics with them in Bosnia or meet with nuns in N. Ireland or make backroom deals with Chinese government in secret does not count.

And what public service? Corporate Attorney for Wal-Mart? Give yourself a break from the kool-aid.
