Clinton Cat Fight?

Will Hillary have to defend her extreme makeover to a softer image now that it has been reported that she gave away Socks the cat when she left the White House? The report is that Hillary got Socks to soften her image and make her look like a good mom while she was in the White House. When she and Bill left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue it seems the only thing they did not take with them was Socks who they gave to Betty Currie. Is this another instance of Hillary using something for political gain and expedience and then discarding it when it no longer served a purpose? Probably not, but who knows.

Perhaps the Clintons decided that they could not care for a cat with their busy post White House lifestyle. Chelsea was off to college and work and there would not be staff members around to care for it. Given that Bill took Buddy with him one could make the argument that Socks the cat was just a convenient prop that was discarded when no longer needed. Given that Buddy ran in the street and was hit by a vehicle, it might be a blessing for Socks to have been given away.

I believe that Hillary Clinton is cold and calculating and that she does not do anything unless there is a political motive. Getting the cat was probably one of those calculated moves but giving it away might have been nothing more than giving it to someone who liked it and could care for it much better than the Clintons could. Betty Currie was an obvious choice because she had a history of cleaning up Clinton messes.

Socks is better off than Buddy and Hillary can always borrow the cat or get a new one should she feel the need to express her softer side.

Of course, if she wants to look soft she should get a porcupine. Even Hillary would look soft next to one of those.

    BD,

    You couldn’t make this iron rock soft in a 50 gallon vat of aloe.
    I loved the comments in the debate last night at her expense. I bet her crushing machine is in full speed mode today. Haven’t heard from Elizabeth Edwards for a while guess she knows how the crusher works now.
