what I would want to ask 'Hillary' if I had a conversation with her
Senator Clinton, you recently announced the creation of a presidential exploratory committee, and you have said, "I'm in to win." Just over two months ago, you were re-elected as the junior senator from New York, a campaign during which you said nothing about your presidential aspirations. The other senators who have expressed interest in the presidency, such as Senators Biden and Obama, were elected four and two years ago respectively. If you were to obtain the nomination, you would spend countless days on the campaign trail, far away from the Senate floor. How are the good people of New York, who assumed that you wanted the job for the full six years, not to think that you falsely represented yourself to them when you knew full well that you'd be running for president in 2008 and would only be their senator for another two years?
