Hillary hears dead people

Which is probably better than being an attendee at a Hillary rally where you only see stupid people, bit I digress. ABC is reporting that, yes, Hillary is hearing voices from beyond, but it ain't Eleanor Roosevelt this time. Granted, these voices aren't much better than Mrs. Roosevelt:

ABC News' Eloise Harper and Kate Snow Report: In McAllen, Texas this morning Senator Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., said she wasn’t giving up on her race for the White House.

Speaking about her work in South Texas as an organizer for George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, Clinton said two strong Texas women inspired her -- Congresswoman Barbara Jordan and Texas Governor Ann Richards.

Clinton said they taught her about courage and determination. Then she suggested that she is hearing from them even as her campaign struggles to compete after a string of losses.
"I can hear their voices saying, 'You keep going! You give the people a real choice about the future!'" she said at a campaign event.

Jordan was the first black woman elected to the Texas state legislature and served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1973-79. She died in 1996. Richards, a larger-than-life Governor, passed away in 2006.

Now Barbara Jordan was a respected member of the House, and gave two prominent keynote addresses to the DNC. She was even considered as a running mate for Jimmy Carter. Ann "Ma" Richards was a one-term governor who only won that election because her opponent made an off-color joke, which cost him the election. Given the repeated gaffes her opponent made, she should have beat him easily, but narrowly squeaked out a 49-47 win. She was soundly beat by George W. Bush in 1994, 53-46. So while Hillary may have one good woman to speak with in Jordan, but Ma Richards ain't all that.

But should we really be considering a woman that communicates with the dead so much? Does her communication with Eleanor Roosevelt, and these two women, count towards that "35 years of experience" she refuses to elaborate on? If so, and she's elected, will she denote a "National Seance Day" so we can all participate in speaking to dead people? Or will this be the focus of the next M. Night Shyamalan movie? Geez. Talk about needing attention.
