Edward Cox or Yonkers Mayor John Spencer the two other possible GOP Pirro presents a real Jeanine Pirro is progun proaffir mative progaycivil unions and proimmigra of shes a In a Hillary will have to end up running against someone who is quite like herself in her public posi tions of Pirro is a good old fashioned toughonter ror Republican from the Hillary would love to cloak her Senate re election as a necessity in the face of a deter mined GOP effort to overturn Roe Wade and to roll back the clock on gun But against she will be disarmed of all her best She will have to run on her own which is limited at on the other can point out that Hillary refuses to say that she will serve out her term if elected since we all know that the day the returns are in she will start her campaign for Hillary has her own twist on the famous line of Sher man If I refuse to The Quinnipiac Poll recently found that Hillary beat Pirro by more than 30 percent age points but in the same 60 per cent of the states voters said that Clin ton should pledge to serve out her full term if she runs for the Pirro looks weak in the polls right now because she only has about a 30 percent level of real name recognition But the fact that about one Hillary voter in three says that Clinton should promise not to run for president if she seeks reelec tion to the Senate is an indication that all will not be well for her as she seeks a sec ond If Hillary faced a rightwing voters would overlook her refusal to prom ise to serve if elected but with they may come to feel that they have a Pirro for that she would join the bipartisan group of 14 senators who promised to save the Sen ate from destruction by pledging to support reasonable judicial nominees and to refrain from unreasonable And Pirro doesnt need to beat Hillary to wound If she finishes less than the 12 points behind Clinton that Rick Lazio man aged in the 2000 it will be a victory of Hillary will have some explaining to do to tell why fewer New Yorkers wanted her to be reelected than voted for her in the first at some Clinton may feel Pirro gaining on them and wonder if it is worth the Its worth remembering that Hillary did not want Bill to run for reelection for gov ernor of Arkansas in 1990 as he contem plated a race for president in Back then she had a better idea She would run in his place Hillary almost has a lock on the Democ ratic nomination in 2008 and can build up a massive financial and political lead over all possible But if she is engaged in a nipandtuck battle in New York to keep what she already she will have to divert million or million from her presidential race and spend her time in rather than in If Pirro posts some early particular ly where it is cheap to do early Hillary and BiU may read the handwriting on the

of their inarticu late the sages One of the traits that distin guish the modern liberal is the belief in systemic problems and therefore systemic solu The conservative recognizes that all human problems begin with the The believing that crime is a result of societal thinks if the socie ty is crime will The conservative knows While all humans must adapt to their happiness is not depend ent on the but rather on the individuals assessment of his envi More the environ ment cannot change the A wise Jewish doctor who survived the death camps discovered that Sigmund Freud who believed that if the re straints of civilization were people would revert to animal savagery In the camps where those restraints were he said those who came in good remained good those who came in bad remained In other whether one is kind or ruthless is not a product of the environ It is a product of what is in the in dividuals To use a more common all that alcohol does is lower a mean drunk is a mean per son
