Hillary in Denver, Springs Edition

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

The most colorful (for lack of a better term) coverage of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s rally yesterday on the Auraria Campus can be found, not surprisingly, in today’s Colorado Springs Gazette:

An overflow crowd welcomed Sen Hillary Rodham Clinton to her first major Colorado rally Tuesday, cheering the Democratic presidential front-runner’s anti-incumbent bravado. [Pols emphasis]

The New York Democrat spoke to a crowd of about 5,000 at Denver’s Auraria Campus about health care, education and renewable energy. She proposed a universal pre-kindergarten program and promised to commit $50 billion to a strategic clean energy fund, funding it by taking away subsidies to oil companies.

She drew her biggest applause by bashing the Bush administration [Pols emphasis] on topics from its handling of the Iraq war to federal overpayments to student loan companies. Calling the current leadership “an orgy [Pols emphasis] of cronyism and no-bid contracts,” Clinton vowed to turn around a country whose reputation and morale she described as dim…

Tough to imagine this being written in a style more incendiary to the average El Paso County dittohead, but that’s what sells papers down there.

  1. Get real, man. Hillary did and said everything Sealover said she did. Just because other papers didn’t use the same material doesn’t mean it’s not newsworthy or relevant.

    And are you saying that if any politician uses the word “orgy” in a sentence, that you either wouldn’t or shouldn’t use it in a story?

      1. Although she’s not my first choice, most likely she will be the next President of the United States, and the first female to fill this role in our nation’s history.  Will you call her a hack then ?

    1. You expect the Gazette to suddenly turn into a cheering section for Hillary?

      Admittedly, it’s a bit opinionated for a news article, but it’s probably no worse than your average Washington Times or New York Daily News piece, and it’s a whole lot better than watching Glen Beck or Bill-O.

      I don’t get it, guvs…

  2. She paused deliciously long on “orgy,” and definitely earned her biggest cheers with the anti-Bush/Cheney rhetoric. At her best telling stories- a couple really good anecdotes that hooked people and humanized her, but clunkier on policy. Not exactly “comfortable” as the Rocky called her- I’d say more relieved to have a young and predictable audience- “make college affordable, forgive student loans, no tuition hikes during your four years”…applause.
    He also dedicated her first big quote to her strongest point- the “making America respected in the world” bit.
