Bloomberg throwing party for Clinton

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to host a party for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to ease her transition back from the presidential campaign trail, where she waged a tough fight for the Democratic nomination.

Bloomy to host 'Welcome back Clinton' bash

The billionaire mayor, who had toyed with the idea of his own independent presidential run, met with the New York senator in Washington on Thursday and offered to host a welcome back event for her, a spokesman said.

Clinton spent 18 months out on the campaign trail in a grueling race that she eventually lost to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.


Will the taxpayers get an 18 month refund from Clinton for the salary she was paid while promoting herself at the expense of not representing us?

OMG, what pic! The 70's gold tie, the facial expression, ... there are just no words.

Imagine if the Jeffersons had a flamboyant gay neighbor (even more than Bently). This is probably what he would have looked like.

Dear Hil,

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old state that you laughed about.

Well the Governor has changed since you hung around,
Those dreams have remained, but they've let you down.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Back here where we don't need ya (Here we don't need ya)

Yeah we tease her a lot
cause Bill's porkin someone hot,

Welcome back,
Welcome back,
Welcome back,
Welcome back.

Notice on the news, all you see is Schumer, never Hillary.

Notice on the news, no one ever says a thing about it (hey Ridgewoodian, just like back in the USSR when a high profile 'disappears.'

And we wonder why we get short charged from Washington and places like Wyoming get more than their fair share.

Wyoming (with the population of Staten Island) has two senators.

Its wonderful that the machine pressured Obama to help Hillary repay her money she sunk in the campaign.

Then I heard that she is transferring her money raised for the presidential bid back to her Senate reelection campaign.

Good God. We are facing years of this woman.

Notice how a number of Queens hacks were her delegates?

If Obama is smart he won't consider Hillary for his veep.

She'll try and poison him
(or get somebody else to do it for her, then have the hired assassin whacked)!

This is a Lady Macbeth if ever
there was one!

I disagree.

She is exactly who he should pick if he wants to win.

Schumer gets enough airtime to make up for Hillary's lack of the same.
Don't get in between him and a camera crew or you'll get run over.

Is that a promo photo of Soupy Sales?

If not, then which frivolous TV character from the 50s and 60s is in the photo?

What is the yellow bow tie all about?

I think she should be fined for neglecting her duties to the people of NY because she spent 18 months campaigning and a year prior to that talking about it. She voted on nothing important during that time and recieved a nice paycheck with benefits to accomplish nothing but spending milions of donated dollars. What a freakin waste of time and money. At least when Bill was in the White House and Gov of Arkansas he was sleeping with the aides and interns. That's right Hillary said it was ok and it really wasn't sex. If I pulled that crap my wife would surely crush my head with a frying pan. And there is Bloomberg kissing up to that waste of space in the Senate, Hillary!
