My Conspiracy Theory Regarding Hillary Clinton

February 2, 2007

Real or imagined, you heard it here first.

Trivia question: What blonde lady spoke at the 2004 Democratic Convention and brought the house down like a mystery guest?

Right: Christie Vilsack.


Christie Vilsack! Wife of Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack.

What blonde lady, to the amazement of all, didn’t get to speak at the Democratic Convention in 2004, except to introduce Bill Clinton?

Right: Hillary Clinton.

Non-trivia questions: Can anyone take a podium away from Hillary Clinton that she does not willingly relinquish? Of course not. Does Hillary Clinton relinquish a Convention podium without a very well-calculated reason? Of course not.

Mrs. Vilsack spoke of libraries and literacy. Very big stuff politically. She charmed the crowd without upstaging anyone.

This year, Tom Vilsack quietly announced his candidacy for President. Is he campaigning his candy heart out, trying to compensate for total lack of name recognition? No, he’s awaiting further instructions.

Can Hillary Clinton win the heartland? I posit she can’t–not without a running mate like, say, a governor from Iowa.

So the whole thing about Hillary not getting to speak at the Convention, and some unknown wife of the Governor of Iowa speaking at the Convention, were all stagecraft preparation for next year’s election.

We’ll see.

    Cue “Twilight Zone” Theme.

    Rod Serling voice imitation quoting the old “Shadow” show:

    “Who knows what lurks in the hearts of (wo)men?”

    Cackling laughter fading. . . .

    I think your theory is better than most. I’ve heard some suggest Richardson from NM as a running mate, but he doesn’t exactly have a big state draw.

    Adding fodder to the fire, as it were, Clinton is big on “strategic energy” and Vilsack is in the ethanol belt.

    Actually, the quote is,”who knows what EVIL lurks in the heart of men..? or in Vic’s case, women. However, it does seem to me an interesting maneuver by the democrats that went quite smoothly, considering the cat not baring her claws…which definitely substantiates your point. I’ll put it to my conspiracy theory-rich husband. And I hope Coolidge doesn’t take offense at my animal analogy…( would that be the opposite of anthropomorphism?)
