I realize the only reason Hillary Clinton agreed to an interview with Bill O'Reilly is because her back is against the wall. However, I am not sure why she hadn't sat down with him years ago. As someone who has absolutely no intention of voting of her, I can say she wasn't intimidated by him in the least and handled him very well. Perhaps better than anyone I've seen. Now I don't believe for a moment that she will take on OPEC, the oil companies or the health insurance companies nor frankly much else she said. But I think she'll get votes from her appearance because. If nothing else, she demonstrated she wants to be President. She ain't dropping out. Hillary is hungry and Obama had better watch out because in her eyes he's a rib-eye sandwich. She has now effectively given Obama no choice but to go on O'Reilly. After all, it was Hillary's people who contacted O'Reilly for this interview thus taking the bull by the horns. If Obama doesn't, independent and undecided voters are going to ask, "What gives?" If you can't handle O'Reilly how can you handle Ahmadinejad? Last night, they discussed Reverend Wright, energy policy, taxation and health care. Tonight's segment deals with foreign policy and defense. Given that those are my primary areas of interests it will be interesting to see what is discussed in this segment.
