Wasserman Schultz and the Jimmy Choos

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a self-proclaimed "fairly staunch Hillary Clinton supporter" predicts Clinton backers will enthusiastically support Barack Obama after they get a chance to give Clinton her due at a roll call vote expected Wednesday night.

"The vast majority of Hillary supporters that are here are excited about the message on this button," she said, pointing to her lapel pin, "Hillary Clinton supporter for Obama."

"They've been saying we all need to come together," she said, adding, "They want to be able to celebrate her success and how far women have come and the history making candidacy she has had...It's a way for us to bring Hillary supporters behind Barack Obama and lock elbows and march forward together and celebrate two history making candidacies at one convention."

Wasserman Schultz joined several colleagues at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor at a downtown hotel. Asked by one reporter whether women would flock to John McCain if he selected a female running mate, Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., cast baffled looks at each other.

"Who?" Stabenow said, noting that names that have been floated such as McCain's economic adviser Carly Fiorina, "is not walking in the shoes of the women in Michigan, economically."

Quipped Wasserman Schultz of the former Hewlett-Packard chairman and chief executive, "She's walking in Jimmy Choos."

Carly Fiorina took a very well running high tech company HP with a great product line and nearly destroyed it by producing pieces of junk cheaply made printers designed to last a few months and become expensive paperweights in short order. She raised the price of inkjet refills to outrageous levels and made it cheaper to just buy a new printer than buy refills. In making such junk, she ruinted the reputation of HP which had formerly dominated the printer PC market all during the 80s and 90s. She was and is an empty suit.


Wasserman Schultz is a moron.


Uh...Ok, Mrs. Schulz, so let me get this straight. Carly Fiorina is not walking in the shoes of the women in Michigan, economically. But Hillary Clinton is? WTF?

Does Wasserman Schultz drive a Toyota Corolla or a Lexus?


For some reason Wasserman drives me up the wall. As yellow dog democrat as they come (no, I'm not talking about her new hair color) and she never met a liberal tax and spend program she didn't defend.

The party seems to think she walks on water, which says a lot about the party.

Mrs. Shultz, who is an unregistered representative of Israel, and should not be considered for an office higher than Dog Catcher!


Ankledeep's history of Fiorina is spot on. She is every bit the accomplished CEO that Dubya Bush was. A guarantee of failure and bankruptcy. For the rest of you who are tearing down Wasserman Schultz, did any of you ever say a positive word about anything or ever offer any constructive ideas? I haven't seen it from a republican poster yet. All I read is bile! Take a Tums!


Wasserman is so out of touch. The woman has never held a real job in her entire life. Always working for a politican or being one. She just don't know what the real world is like. A total waste.
