Florida 2000 = ballot fraud in Nigeria? Jeb Bush declines comments on Hillary Rodham Clinton's remarks

Traveling in Africa, America's top diplomat, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raised eyebrows for remarks she made about elections in Nigeria.

Clinton tried to push the message that embracing violence is never the answer, ABC News reported. But it was her reference to the disputed 2000 presidential election -- and Florida's role -- that drew attention.

"Our democracy is still evolving," ABC reported her as saying. "You know we've had all kinds of problems in some of our past elections as you might remember. In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for president was the governor of the state, so we have our problems, too."

A spokesman for the former governor told ABC he was "declining to weigh in on these ill-advised comments: "But wishes Secretary Clinton a safe and successful trip."

The Clintons don't have any class. Once again she shows what a mean spitited, bitter person she is. AND SHE STILL WANTS TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. God save the day.

Yeah, Hillary. Our democracy is "still evolving"!

Into what?

One based on ACORN voter registration fraud, with Black Panther thugs 'protecting' voting places, and SEIU toughs MauMau-ing citizens who speak in opposition to the New Reich?

How very African; how very Kenyan!

A cheap shot from a cheap woman.
She has a vindictive streak and a long memory. I was delighted to watch her lose the primary last year, but she isn't done yet -- Obama will face her again in 2012.
