The "Good Old Days," According to Hillary

[Hat tip to The Nation magazine.]

"I intend to win in November, 2008, and then I intend to build a centrist coalition in this country that is like what I remember when I was growing up." --Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Washington Post, October 10, 2007.

As The Nation notes, the only trouble with this is that when Hillary was young, she was a Goldwater Girl. No wonder Rupert Murdoch loves her (he gave her a fund raiser). That's how far we've come. The Goldwaterites are seen as centrists. And the relabeling process continues.
